I started my first weblog in June, 1997 too.
There’s an entry in that weblog for Halloween, 1997: What I wore for Halloween in 1989. If you only follow one link from here today, make it this one.
In case you hadn’t noticed, I changed my picture (at the left) for Halloween. I like it so much that I think I’ll leave it.
CNN.com: “An Italian tanker carrying 6,000 tons of toxic chemicals has sunk in the English Channel.”
“The stricken tanker, which was being towed to France, was carrying 4,000 tons of styrene, a hydrocarbon used for making synthetic plastics, as well as isopropyl and methyl ethyl ketone.”
If you’re not familiar with Perforce, it’s a multi-platform source code management system (SCM), which is in my opinion, the best in the industry. While it may be slightly short in the UI department on MacOS, P4Web is going to go a long way towards solving that problem.
There are integrated clients for CodeWarrior and MS Visual Studio.
Perforce does sophisticated branch management, rollbacks, labeling, automated change integration and file merging, tree-based permissions, task management, etc. All the good stuff you’d expect to find in an SCM.
But its biggest boon is that it’s FAST. At Sonic Solutions, we used Perforce to manage a code-base with 16,000 base files, and branches that worked out to roughly 100,000 files for God only knows how many million lines of code.
We switched from Projector when we started developing for Windows as well as Macintosh, and never looked back.
If you’re in the market for an SCM system, I strongly recommend you try it out.
“When you go to the main discussion group page in topic mode, you see a list of current topics. Topics that are no longer current don’t appear on the list.
“When you click on a topic, you go to a page that displays all the messages in that topic, in chronological order. The first message is at the top, and replies appear below. A reply form appears at the end of the messages.”
