Walked off the job today early. Just had to get out! Caused a major firestorm when people found out that I was using CVS. "Oh dear! That is not authorised. You must use PVCS." "Ummm how do I do that." "Oh, your manager has not authorized you to have a copy of PVCS installed on your computer so you cannot use it." So, how to I maintain version control?" "You must use PVCS. We will all get in trouble if they find out that we had CVS installed on the web server." When one developer heard that someone had CVS dozens of other ones started asking around. "CVS? CVS? We can use CVS? Where can I get it???" Had to nip that in the bud. Probably end up writing a script in Perl to do something like it. Poor man's retarded CVS.

I don't understand how Fortune 500 companies survive. Back to dice.com.

It's been a while. Finally got the family moved out to HicksVille.
