Let’s rewind a year. My wife’s first published book is in editing. We discuss her need for a professional author’s website. I take a look at what I’m paying for Windows hosting with Arvixe, and think about how irritating it’s been and how many things I can’t control, and how their service has been […]
Having spent an undue amount of time in compiler-land over the last four months, I have nothing but respect for a team that acknowledges the shortcomings of their architecture, and so REWRITES IT. Congratulations on the new release, mono team! http://tirania.org/blog/archive/2009/Jan-20-1.html
Yesterday, I had a problem to solve. I didn’t want to stay at work until 9pm, waiting for another team’s process to publish a file. (Grossly simplified, but you get the idea). I also didn’t want to log in from home at 9pm in order to wait for it to happen (I did that the […]
I had a problem with a piece of code last night. An apparent infinite loop without apparent cause. Because I’m working on in-development tools, though, I couldn’t even go to disassembly. I sat and stared this morning at the offending code, knowing I must be missing something. I finally went down the hall to grab […]
I recently transitioned my blog from a LAMP stack at 1and1.com (who I was happy with) to a Windows/IIS7 stack at GoDaddy.com (which was cheaper, and more importantly, Windows-based). At both locations I had multiple domains registered with the same account.
On top of the aforementioned SERVER ERROR 500 issue occuring because I didn’t specify a USER_AGENT that matched the white list, I’ve been spending the last week trying to track down exactly why I couldn’t upload a file. I used the stock GalleryRemote program (isn’t sufficient for automation purposes) to test my server, and it […]
Partially as a learning exercise, and partially because I’m a money grubbing greedy bastard, I’m trying to come up with a clever extension to Microsoft Windows Home Server. Unfortunately, I already had pretty much everything I needed on the base installation; I had originally installed it purely to have a system I could hook up […]
I’ve spent a few minutes today going back through over two years of posts and tagging them “appropriately.” The new version of WordPress supports tags, and I’ve always wanted a Tag Cloud (left hand column — see that bit with varying sized pieces of text?), so… So there have been a TON of updates today. […]
I could post this to a programming discussion list. However, I’d rather not look like an idiot to anyone who doesn’t already know me to be one, at least at first.
I get rather alarmed at work when I’m told that someone’s idiocy is to be expected, as they’re: new, young, inexperienced, poorly trained, etc. I just expect better. On the other hand, every so often I run across something truly brilliant, and feel humbled (Any book by Don Box). Today, I ran across “Duff’s Device.” […]
