Search Packer is a brainchild of mine that I've been wanting to get published for a while, but only recently begun work on. It's an extension that lets the user combine different search engines (by entering URLs that can accept parameters) and thereby launch several related searches at the same time, for the same query. Update:
I'm coming along fairly quickly, so I'll probably have a 1.0 version far before 2011 rolls around. If that comes too quickly, I might release it early and bring to fruition one of my other projects I'm keeping cooped up inside my head. If I can, though, I'll bring in some more ambitious features and let this project loose during NANY.
School's started, and so development is taking a big hit. I'm getting swamped with work, and Search Packer, one of my favorite projects, is being forced onto the back burner. Nevertheless, I intend to have a working version out for NANY! Late nights are no match for a coder's spirit, and I'm going to have something released even if it means consuming my Christmas Break with coding. Incidentally, I'd probably be coding anyway, so it's not a huge deal. Oh, well. It shall be done.Update:
I'm not coming along at all anymore. School got too crazy for me to code at all before the break, and Search Packer is too big for me to finish it in the time remaining. I still really want to make Search Packer a reality, but now is not the time for that. I have changed my submission to another pet project I've had for a while, and it's called Goodness (until someone can suggest a better name).
Goodness is a Chrome extension designed to strengthen users of the internet. And by "strengthen," I mean religiously. I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
, and I want to help people. Specifically people who are recovering from a pornography addiction, but I feel like this could help anybody.
The web page listed for Goodness above will be updated once the extension is released, but for now, this page is the main discussion and information point for Goodness.
