OK I now have spent a week on Calcudos (Dad’s research project) and very little time on my business… Some of the work is finished but there is going to be a lot of work while dad is traveling. They offered to take me but as a landlord I am loath to leave when the rent is due. It is hard to leave in this business but if they need me I could go later. My housemate and I have worked very hard with dad and the programmer. Yesterday we tested the program and came up with user suggestions. I also found an error on calculating age. We are going to be asking the doctors to use the program voluntarily and it must be as user friendly as possible…. I can only make suggestions since I do not know how to program. I am a spreadsheet whiz and a scientist but not a programmer. I did succeed in getting a lot of redundant entry gone (or at least I hope I did). I was asked why I didn’t do this 6 months ago and I said I hadn’t worked the program 6 months ago. I have until 11 AM to call my own since I am the only one involved that gets up in the morning…. OK that is an exaggeration but they are set to meet at 11 AM and I will have been to my office and kept my coffee appointment by then.
I think my housemate has some really great ideas and could be very useful if we get to the stage that the program is making a profit. She has already suggested grant writing. We just have to make sure dad has control of the project. The problem is that if something happens to dad the project will not ever move forward. With the right resources this could help in medical practice and help hold down medical costs. The work is worthy….
Well we will see what happens…. If I am going to get to my office today I sort of have to go NOW….
