CRON-O-Meter Update

Because of the buggered kneecap, I didn’t end up going hiking this week. I took the week off anyways, since I worked my ass off the last few months and it’s nice to have a little down-time. Of course, downtime for me just means working on other things! So I’ve spent a fair bit of time this week working on the cron-o-meter.

As you can see, it’s getting prettier looking. It’s still full of rough edges and huge swaths of missing functionality. I finally got XML import/export working which has made it a lot more usable for me. It’s a lot of work to enter custom foods (all the values for each vitamin and mineral need to be typed in) and since during development I’m constantly blowing away and rebuilding the database backend I was reluctant to enter custom foods over and over again. Now that I can save those custom foods and import them, I can start using the program for my daily tracking. Looks like my problem areas some days are in Zinc and Vitam B-12, which I don’t seem to hit the RDI on. I’m not sure if the standard RDIs are the same as RDAs though, so perhaps I’m ok there. I still have to figure out all that nonsense — there are SO many different ‘standards’.
