The bad

EU is hard at work making a complete ass of itself… again… further reading

The good

California passes groundbreaking open textbook legislation :D

The unsorted thoughtful and/or cool

Pretty cool idea although probably not very useful for anything ;D

The lack of a good manual to explain both a) how it works, b) what it will actually install and where (and if it will set up services or not), c) and how I would actually operate it once installed, are the things (i.e., all results of lacking the necessary documentation for me to read up on BEFORE trying it) which keep me from even considering installing and testing prophet. Which is a real shame as it sounds like an interesting project.

Yet another nifty AWK tutorial

I just heard about Dancer, which seems to be to Perl, what Flask is to Python

ACTA

It’s comforting to know that the people we elect to rule us at least know what they’re doing… Oh… wait…

git and branches

Last week, for the first time, I think I groked branches. The headline mentions git branches, and if they are different from other VCS’ branches, then last week I think I groked git branches :P

I’ve known about branching for quite a while, but never gotten past anything other than a rudimentary understanding.

I think I understood how mercurial does it (simply clone the repository, name the root directory of that clone to whatever you want to call that branch, and presto. (And yes, I am aware that mercurial has a branch command as well, so my understanding on that point is probably incorrect).

Either way, what finally gave me an “aha”-moment was this blogpost.

And while one the subject: Other uses of git. I am going to take a closer look at especially Prophet.
