dr has luckily uncovered some strips he made in the 80s , which provide an interesting look back at then, and maybe raise a few questions about now.
Unix underpants strike again! CamelBones is a framework allowing "many types of Cocoa programs to be written entirely in Perl. It also provides a high-level object-oriented wrapper around an embedded Perl interpreter, so that Cocoa programs written in Objective-C can easily make use of code and libraries written in Perl."
I'm not sure what that means exactly, but it sounds great.
Shawn Wall poster a tutorial on configuring apache running under OS X to enable webDAV support and share out iCal files. I'd been meaning to learn how to do the webDAV thing...I don't care about Jaguar (and thus iCal) yet, maybe becasue I don't have them.
I finally get where class libraries get installed under MacOS X... after finding that technote, it all makes sense.
You go to /Library/Java which has a symbolic link inside of it (some pepole call them aliases, others shortcuts) to the home directory of the current Java installation, which happens to be 1.3 on MacOS X 10.1.5.
Maybe I'll get that Jaguar upgrade I've been dreaming of. Don't know if 1.4 comes with it or not.
Apparently, Verant came to their senses and removed the experience nerf for soloing. I'm assuming that if half the people on various message boards who claimed they had just cancelled their accounts were telling the truth, Verant had a couple thousand people cancel yesterday, which probably mad somebody in accounting say "um."
Oh yeah, I dinged 54 a few days ago.
54 is sort of more disappointing than 53, mainly because I can't afford any of my spells. It's sad. And now Verant nerfed soloing, or changed it, or something.
Weird. But yeah, I'm 1 level from boo boo. Not that I'll have it when I ding. I offered a guy 3k (all I have in the bank) for the scroll the other night and he all but laughed in my face.
I can not add anything that adds any value to that.
Where's Pedro? I never ask that question, but I do wonder where my old friend Pete Fierlinger is. Unfortunately the supa stoopid Turntable Media is on some kind of hiatus, but the website is still up. If you come here fo my fonts, check put Phillip's Fat Tip font, available on the website. (Click on menu (upper left corner), play, fattip).
Peter was back in town and I got together with him, but then I realized this morning that he was gone again.
