What are your technological plans for 2009? Got any interesting personal projects that you’ve planning on undertaking? Any new technologies you want to learn?

Personally, I’m going to make a concerted effort to get a better handle on web applications. I’ve been focusing so much on server side application code (interfaced from RPG, not the web) and thick client (WDSC / RDi integration with MKS Implementer), I’ve been neglecting the most popular technological niche.

I’m also going to try and focus a bit more on PHP … see if I can enhance the list archives to provide some more user features.

And, finally, I’m going to be investigating getting an “i” for midrange.com … see if I can run parts of midrange.com on the best damn server in the world.

What’s on your plate?
