I partially retract my anti-BlueDragon wrath of a few days ago. Turns out BD installs a key into a NewAtlanta-specific registry file, and doesn't bother to remove it when it gets uninstalled. So to reinstall, you need to go manually remove the key from the registry file. The file is located at [...]

Death to BlueDragon!!

More fun with BlueDragon tonight. I've never gotten BD to connect to apache2 on my mac. New Atlanta didn't bother to include a connector that actually works, even though BD will happily attempt to connect itself. So tonight, I thought that I'd reinstall a new version of BD, since there were a [...]

CVS Authentication

As part of my cvs.fusebox.org project, I made up a little CFC that will perform authentication against a CVS passwd file.

Currently, both read-only and read-write access are both restricted to specific [...]

I spent a bunch of time this weekend designing and mocking up the monitor brackets for the counter computer out of paper. Very high-tech stuff. After that, I laid them out on the computer, all to scale, so I can print out the plans, mock it up again to double check, and then [...]
