Yesterday I had the pleasure to implement a new feature in my CMS: moving a page or directory with in the website tree. Its quite easy, once you've implemented it, but it was also an interesting exercise in using code I once wrote.

As often managing Meeting C++ has become a non-code activity, it feels good to have a spot in the week where I focus on "what could I code today?". Today I focused on drawing circular text in Qt, which mostly consisted of writing prototype code, there is still lots to tweak if you'd wanted to use this in production.More Blog entries
