More online IDEs (and pretenders)

March 16, 2012, 3:42 a.m. Collaboration , IDE

Continuing my exploration of online IDEs, here are a few more that I came across: GomobiIt's Touted as a service to build a professional mobile website in minutes, but after several minutes I haven't still figured out what it's about. Correct me if I am wrong here, but this looks like a rebirth of o ...

Online IDEs

March 11, 2012, 2:02 p.m. cloud , Collaboration , IDE

I started looking at what's new in the field of Revision Control Systems and naturally my explorations took me to the field of Cloud hosting. That in turn set me off on another tangent, exploring online IDEs and editors. There are quite a few - too many in fact. Seems like the sensible thing to do i ...

Graphical Subversion

June 2, 2009, 7:08 a.m. Collaboration , netbeans , Python , subversion

Trying out different graphical subversion clients the first one that I tested was rapidsvn. Seems like a pretty decent tool but it had one shortcoming - it will not allow me to enter an unversioned directory. If you are like me, when you go off on a tangent you probably create a few things in a dire ...

Subversioned Wordpress Upgrade

March 4, 2009, 3:50 a.m. Collaboration , Wordpress

They say, release early, release often and Wordpress is one software that seems to follow that mantra pretty well. Fortunately upgrading from one version of Wordpress to another is a painless task - unless of course you have a customized installation. Upgrading a customized installation can be made ...

PHProjekt

Nov. 3, 2008, 6:56 a.m. Collaboration

I first ran Into PHProjekt around 8-9 years ago when I myself was working for a groupware and messaging solution provider. At the time PHProjekt to put it rather bluntly, was half baked. We had our own project management software and it was worse. When the plug was finally pulled on it, no one mourn ...

Reading one svndiff window read beyond the end of the representation

Oct. 2, 2008, 11:34 a.m. Collaboration , toast

I tried svn update and got the following error: Reading one svndiff window read beyond the end of the representation This is usually caused by an error in the repository. The moment the message popped up I knew the exact cause of the error as well. My repository is older than my working copy. You wi ...

Use the working copy to restore a subversion repo.

Sept. 30, 2008, 1:51 p.m. Collaboration

The other day I suffered a hard drive failure and lost my subversion repository. As a result the working copies were at least 1 to 2 revisions newer than the repo. This in turn means you cannot carry out any commits or updates on it before you synchronize the two. Here is how to go about it: 1) The ...

Wiki Hunting.

March 11, 2006, 4:31 a.m. Collaboration

Wikka is not a name that inspires confidence but a rose by any other name smells just as sweet. (No i haven't read the bluffer's guide to shakespeare). I really didn't like the message produced by the installer about the admin name thoughAdmin name must be a wikiname. That means it must start with a ...

Another quest for the perfect wiki

March 5, 2006, 5:08 a.m. Collaboration

After using it for quite sometimes, I am convinced now that mediawiki is not the software to power to this site's wiki. So I am looking for a new one. The first victim of was TPWiki it's advertised as a really simple Wiki. The trouble is it's too simple. The exact opposite of mediawiki.During the l ...

Fixing the Wiki

Jan. 19, 2006, 8:15 a.m. Collaboration

The Wiki on this site has been broken for a long long time. The pages are being displayed but they are not editable. What use is a wiki that cannot be edited by readers?The root cause of the problem is an incompatibility of the Mediawiki (1.3.9) with PHP 4.4 . Fixes were later made available but I ...

libmad

My collection of backup CDs became obsolete, thanks to a corrupted svn revision file. The sensible thing to do is to throw these CDs away and create a new set of CDs. Unfortunately the geek in me would not allow me to do that.Only some of the files on these CD are unusable, the geek (reddish in colo ...

subversion dump and restore

Dec. 12, 2004, 5:05 a.m. Collaboration

Subversion is full of surprises, whenever you start to think 'I am finally getting the hang of this' it throws you another riddle to solve.I ran into one of those riddles when I attempted to back and recover the repository. After having imported this web site, I followed it up with a few more proje ...
