Creak, groan, click

are the noises made as one drags oneself out of 6 months of coding slothville :) Well not really as I've been coding in some proprietary languages some statistical automated trading strategies. Great fun, if not immediately profitable!

So another winter looms, and I've started thinking about dusting off this project, I mean, it's only been something I've been thinking about for ten years or more, so what's another 6 months? Been thinking I'd like to lose some of the fat that's in the code so far, stuff that's there because I wasn't sure of the right design pattern when initially learning all that's needed for a java based music notation gui. Things like the concept of the master or control window - just not needed, if there's no drawing windows open then exit the app, when we start up, if no arg1 with a filename, then new manuscript please.

Am sure it will take me a few weeks to get back up to speed, does eclipse even work still? Probably a few new versions to upgrade to.
