The first release of Log Mine (0.01) was added to this site a little while ago. It was decided not to rely on the services of Sourceforge, the first release has already been delayed by more than a month thanks to them.Version 0.01 is nothing more than a proof of concept.

Log Mine and SF

June 25, 2005, 9:03 p.m.

It's now more than a month since I made an attempt to register Log Mine at sourceforge. After sitting on it for nearly a month I find that the project has been turned down. The reason? there is another project by the same name. That means I have to pick another name and try again.The existing projec ...

File Upload : Overwrite existing

June 22, 2005, 10:21 p.m.

Often we are asked whether it's possible to prevent Rad Upload from overwriting existing files on the server. The answer is indeed yes.Having said that, in HTTP file uploads the client has little say in where the file is to be saved or whether an existing file is overwritten. All that is controlled ...

Handheld Con Artist

June 16, 2005, 11:53 p.m.

We just avoided being conned by a very large handheld devices manufacture. The company (that will remain nameless) tried to hoodwink us into thinking they are a small outfit. Their point of contact wrote to us using his private email address a free one and asked us to modify the Rad File Manager to ...

This server onfortunately ran the database for the shopping cart. If that wasn't bad enough the next day there wa ...

Netbeans Gripes

June 12, 2005, 10:18 p.m.

The main gripe with Netbeans is that it is slow. Compiling is fast enough but that does not make up for everything else being so slow. It takes ages and ages for the code completion popup to appear and then continuing to type while it's open is painfull. Even without the code completion dialog, you ...

Continuing the saga of Java 5: The combined netbeans/java 5 bundled download seems to work very smoothly. Is it the so called seemless integration or have the managed to fix a few bugs? God knows the first release had more than it's fair share.However, trouble occured after a test project had been b ...

June 6, 2005, 12:30 a.m.

The java 5 update 1 was released a few months ago. It was not long after our country was ravaged by the tsunami. Even though the update was downloaded, I never had the chance to try it out. Days turned to weeks and weeks turned to months and update 1 became update 3. Finally I decided to download it ...

Renew Code Signing certificate

June 1, 2005, 8:40 p.m.

The other day, I wrote about having trouble importing a thawte certificate back into the keystore. No matter what the certificate refused to add it self to the store - or if it was added the jarsigner refused to recognize it. The only solution seems to be to get a reissue.Thse are the exact steps:Fi ...
