New Release Imminent

We very happy to report that the development on the next version of SampleSort is going well.  We’re just finalising the last few bits of the application in preparation for its release.

Again there isn’t anything major in terms of changes or new features but we have had significant feedback on the performance of the application and have optimised it in many ways to run even faster than before.  There are also a number of bug fixes that address some quite serious problems that a few users have encountered.

We’d like to give a shout out to the users that have provided this feedback (and associated log files for debugging).  Many thanks guys, the help is really appreciated and very useful!!

We are expecting to make a new released by the end of next week (Friday 12th June 2015).  We’ll update the blog with further details when the release is online and read for download.


Next Version

Hello All!  Whilst it’s been quite here on the JamSoft blog we have been working on the next version of SampleSort.  Whilst there won’t be any major new features in this version there is a lot of optimisation and bug fixes to arrive in the next version.

People are still reporting the odd occasion where SampleSort doesn’t complete a complete system scan for files which is hugely frustrating for everyone.

If you do experience an instance of this it would be appreciated if you could visit the JamSoft Google Group and add a message and attach the log file to help us determine what occurred so we can include a bug fix in the next release of the application.

You can find the log file at the following location:

C:\ProgramData\JamSoft\SampleSort\Config

Many Thanks!!

Political Literacy

We have started a new in-house project about increasing critical thinking in relation to politics and political reporting in the UK.  It is an exciting project to be involved in and we are welcoming any help in realising the completed project.

If you think you can help please do look at the site and contact us.

Hello new lenssniper.com

Welcome to the new look web site.  It’s been a long time coming as we have been so busy on more pressing client work.  Whilst we loved the old site (obvs!) technology, time and requirements move fast and the theme we had developed for WordPress was looking old.

So we sat down and had a think.  The basic premise of anything we do centres around less is more.   The longer we find ourselves wondering this technological land the more obvious this becomes.  All through the various disciplines from design to writing code and audio work, less is almost always better.  We also wanted to fully support the new array of devices that adorn almost everyones lives now (quite rightly too!).  We want to use the site with our iPads!

The platform was already decided – WordPress, we love it here and it really does deserve it’s top spot.  We then evaluated a number of responsive frameworks for the site and eventually settled on Foundation 5.  This framework is excellent and we can highly recommend it.  We also wanted to start writing about some of the projects we have worked on so decided to author a custom case studies plugin for WordPress to present these.

Anyway, we hope you like the new site and hope to speak to you soon!

 


New Client – Greens Models

We very happy to announce that we have a new client in the fold.  We have been commissioned to build their entire on-line presence as they are completely new to on-line retail and managing web sites.

We have been asked to;

  • Evaluate e-commerce platforms
  • Design all branding and graphics
  • Design, build, configure and deploy

We are really looking forward to working with this client on what looks to be a fun and interesting project.


The Boot Hill All Stars

Great shoot at the weekend with the Boot Hill All Stars.  They were in need of some new promotional shots that included some new band members and asked if Lenssniper could take on the job. We had a grand old time of it but the weather was pretty horrid 🙁  Will add links here once the new photos are included on their web site.


Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all the SampleSort users!  Here’s to a successful 2015 and the next version of SampleSort!


Blender Infinity Cove

Thought I’d give you all a little xmas gift.  I’ve been working on some materials over the last few days and needed an Infinity Cove for the final renders.  So knocked this up and thought I’d share it.
