March 16, 2009 by Velimir Gašparović

This is a service I would like to have: I could browse the map, draw circles of various sizes and associate tasks to them.

So, this is the second (and hopefully last) part of my e-banking rant. It’s a question of my mental health to get this through, so please excuse me. And stay tuned, as I had an epiphany this morning and new post is just behind the corner 🙂 It’s about the developer’s version of the McClintock […]
