New Release!


I’m proud to announce the forthcoming release of Baby Locke 2.0 (Beta)*.

  • Baby Locke 2.0 will undoubtedly reflect features yet to be seen in previous releases, but by far the most exciting one we can announce for sure is the use of the “Girl-Script” programming language!
  • Baby Locke 2.0 will remain in beta testing until the official release date of November 30th.
  • And yes, this developer in particular has hopes that Baby Locke 2.0 will be released entirely open source, and shared with the world! (probably right here on this blog)
  • You can rest assured that Baby Locke 1.0 (affectionately dubbed “Grady” by our development team) will continue to be a supported release, and has recently undergone several upgrades (i.e. potty training capabilities and now comes standard with a pet rock module) and will henceforth be packaged as “Toddler Locke 1.0.”
  • *(Yes, I realize this metaphor is less than original, but I still like it).

UPDATE: Ok, I thought I was being pretty obvious here, but apparently I’ve managed to sow confusion once again, so here’s the translation for non-geeks: Amy is about four months pregnant, and we’re expecting our second child (a girl) to arrive in late November. Hence, “Baby Locke 2.0 Beta.” Sheeesh…do I have to explain how this happened, too?

    Hmmm. A comment about “those who live in glass houses…” would be appropriate here, Nazir, but I’ll refrain.

    I don’t think that identity is in question. However, magnitude is, and this blog post went beyond nerdy.

    I am unashamed of the magnitude of my nerdiness.

    Congratulations, you guys! How perfect can it get? A boy to loosen your parenting inhibitions and then a girl to lavish with danger! I’m fond of the combination myself. What a year of adventure!

    Congrats to you!

    Congratulations, Mr. Locke. I think you should name her Jonathan. That would be fantastic.

    Does the 2.0 designation somehow imply that Baby 2.0 will be an improvement over baby 1.0?

  9. Hey Neal, I just went looking for this because I knew it was getting close. Nov 30, huh? How’s Amy doing these days? Tell her I said Hello.

    Get the tattoo, dude. Just DO it. It’s TOTALLY worth it.
