New York, New York

Silke will be presenting at the SIOP conference this year in New York. I’m tagging along, because I love visiting New York.

We’ll arrive Thursday, April 26th and leave Sunday, April 30th. Since Silke will have to be at the conference much of the time, I’ll have lots of time to roam the city on my own.

If any of my NY Gnomies want to grab a drink, shoot me an email at shaunm at gnome dot org. Luis, I’m looking at you.

More SVN Woes

SVN continues to annoy me. The only thing it’s allowed me to do that CVS didn’t is move files. The cost of this convenience has been a massive loss of productivity, because it doesn’t allow me to easily perform the actions that I need to do frequently.

Last time I complained about SVN, it had to do with the fact that SVN doesn’t actually have branches or tags. Today’s annoyance boils down to the same basic problem, though it’s manifested differently.

This is what I would do in CVS to start preparing a NEWS entry for gnome-user-docs:

cvs diff -r GNOME_USER_DOCS_2_15_1 `find . -name ChangeLog`

But with SVN, I have to give it two obnoxiously long URLs to diff. There doesn’t seem to be any way to say, “compare the versions of these files from this branch/tag and that branch/tag”, short of some fancy ‘find -exec’ shenanigans.

House Pictures

Silke has put up pictures of our house on her Yahoo! Photos account. There are pictures of how it looked when we bought it, and how it looks now that we ripped off all the wallpaper and painted it. It’s a huge difference.

Here’s a small sample:
