Olive is starting to really come together now. Hoping to let some friends bang on it starting tomorrow night. Tonight I figured out some ways to go behind Curses::UI's back and twiddle its internals to achieve some neat effects like listboxes that reload themselves without losing your place, and selecting from a listbox without it having focus -- optionally only selecting items which haven't been seen before. It's pretty neat (I think).
I had the thought to run sloccount on it just after wrapping up work for the night, and the results are amusing. It estimates coding time as 1.36 months, with 2.81 months total needed as an overall schedule. Estimated cost so far: $15,332.
Actual development time: early Sunday morning to early Wednesday morning. Total cost so far: some ramen, a pot of soup, 2 apples, a banana, and half a bag of Oreos.
