A Day in the Life of Dorian for 2009-12-30

  • In a few more hours 2009 is history! Looking forward to the New Year. #
  • Blurgh. More #pl-sql debugging fun. Well at least one of the stored procedures works. #
  • Head meets desk. #pl-sql hell continues. Debugging not fun or easy. Does #Oracle just want to make my life difficult? #
  • Another day in the database bog. 🙁 #

  • Another satisfied !wp customer. Nice and simple upgrade to 2.9. Good work !wp devs and keep it up! #
  • Grumble, grumble. I “love” writing diplomatically worded communicates. Esp. in the morning. Why can’t people act mature, please? #
  • @olhe Ugh. Thats not cool, and I thought my !wp upgrade went smoothly. 🙁 Good thing I don’t have any scheduled posts coming up. #
  • Phew almost done. #

  • #justCheckers quite the response for developers. More than I can manage actually. #
  • Ugh. It seems everyone who deals with tech, says that word. Different underlying reasons, but its all about “why does this tech not work?!?” #
  • And not work as in not work as advertised. #
  • Done responding to all potential #justCheckers devs. Thanks #dplatonoff for the patch test idea. Gonna implement it in #justCheckers. 🙂 #
  • @jonobacon Just finished reading The Art of Community. One word: brilliant. And thanks for ideas and solutions I can use in my own projects. #
  • OK, I think the stage is set for restarting #justCheckers development. Plan on picking a core dev team from the best contributers. #

Developers, Developers, Developers @ justCheckers

Looks like my recent cry for help with the justCheckers project, was heeded.  I got about 12 responses, and now I’m in the process of picking the core development team.  The developer mailing list is up and functional.   And thanks to Dmitry Platonoff, who I used to work with, gave me a helpful hint to maintaining my sanity.  While I’d like to get as many developers working on the project as possible, I want to be able to coordinate things in a manageable manner.  Also I’m really picky when it comes to code quality.  So I think I will let people submit patches for now, before I start handing out commit access.  Still I’m impressed with the progress.

  • E-mails to write, people to annoy and data-devouring scripts to release on an unsuspecting world. Just another day at work. #
  • Hmm… Should I? I probably should. When? Now is probably a good time as any. Name? Working on that now. Rough idea of what I want to do… #
  • #sourceforge please let me set up my e-mail properly. Please. #
  • Hurrah got another “vanity” #sourceforge e-mail working. Excellent. Now to respond to potential #justCheckers devs. #

  • Hurrah. Quick hack almost ready for release. #
  • Wow. #Facebook privacy controls are open to all by default? Talk about bad default settings. Remember to audit your #Facebook content. #
  • Oops. I just found out that a bunch of people responded to my call for help with #justcheckers. Damn #gmail spam filters. #
  • Another great #shotofjaq episode. Love the idea of buying service from a technically adept #ISP. Most of those are way too expensive. 🙁 #
  • To speak like yoda I plan on learning how: http://www.yodaspeak.co.uk/index.php I know this, old for many of you, must be. Herh herh herh. #
  • Getting the hang of #PL/SQL. Coming to the tricky part of my stored procedure, a merge of sorts. How to select inside a conditional… #
  • Wishing a #lightondark theme for Windows XP along with something for PDFs and webpages, right about now. Eyes melting… #

  • My TODO list feels like it decided to grow during the weekend. Looks its time to take a whack at it again. #
  • So “Everybody” in #Facebook, means literally everyone, their pet dog and the all-seeing eye of #Google can access that bit of data. Nice. 🙁 #
  • @xopher Tried using qtgtkengines (forgot the exactname) and something like QtCurve theme for #gtk and #qt? !kde !ubuntu #
  • Still RTFMing the #Oracle #database manual for app devs. Almost done. Might change my opinion about #Oracle 10g. Ask me again in 2 days. #
  • When in doubt, and if you can get away it… Pull a Godzilla and pretend not to notice the swath of destruction you just laid down. #
