Well talking with the east coast developer about his
deployment process, I now can say the the dharma
transmission is complete, I now know that he should have
done that a long time ago! Better later than never I
suppose. At least his process is documented now. Why does
M$ insist on hiding key aspects of a process in options,
tab bars, and menu drop-downs? There's no logical flow to
it, you just have to 'know' where all these things are.
Anyway. The development team is making a shift from CVS to PVCS, our company standard now. Unfortunately, the powers that be didn't consider that a lot of the developers on the web team use Linux -- which PVCS is in the process of making available for linux developers, I think the PVCS group is feeding us their alpha versions. But I actually had a chance to go back to my Linux roots and play in console land at work. All I can say is ahhhhh.... Give me more, I want more!
Ilan, thanks for the tip, I was really hoping for some activeX help tho, I know that I at least have some chance of success with that. That should at least give you some indication of how fargone my lovelife is. ;) I mean, what am I doing working with this doomed technology? Actually, I won't have to work with it too much longer, this is purely for maintenance, most of our apps already run on unix systems, and we're using JSP, which I kinda like.
Never admit to knowing about something you never want to work with.
Times bring change Constant spinning. Up, down, Off, on, 1, 0.
Every action the beginning, of a new thought every thought the beginning, of a new action.
I influence you, you influence me, separate from our actions, yet one with them.
it seems strange to think that time heals. What exactly is it healing? Is it a balm of sorts? Or are we just forgetting, with enough events and people interspersed in between the bad time and the now time, that the bad doesn't seem so bad anymore?
How do we learn? Preventing the bad from happenning again, requires remembering the bad, reliving it, daily, like a pill. There ways of living in which we don't have to concern ourselves with remembering evils done, but simply live an existance where water rolls down stream, and trees grow straight and tall, and the sun rises and sets.
Here there is no learning, it is doing, breathing, coding, building, but learning happens anyway. And the balm of time feels like icy-hot, and smiles become a treasure.
these are times to live and these are places to begin never forgetting, never remembering. Be.
New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
