jQuery for Dummies

Published by . Filed under Programming, Web. Total of no comments in the discussion.

In an attempt to create cross-browser support for S:GTC I thought that learning jQuery would help in making the map work in more than IE6. So instead of getting frustrated at the abysmal PHP code I have to work with I decided to sit down with jQuery and de-stress. Or so I thought. I did […]

Using Source Control: My Way

Published by . Filed under Programming, Subversion. Total of no comments in the discussion.

It’s been a while since I started this. Sorry for the delay. Source Control is pretty easy to use when used correctly and consistently. If you start to do odd things, then it starts to twist your mind. First up, you have a repository. This is object you are working with and where your files […]

Functors

NOTE: I found this in my drafts folder, from a long, long time ago, it’s a little dated but I will let it stand as some of the points are still valid. At work I’ve inherited several legacy projects, one large with several smaller ones that support it. Making changes is pretty dangerous – I’ve […]

More on Multiple Repositories in Windows

Published by . Filed under Programming, Subversion. Total of no comments in the discussion.

Last time we spoke I left you with two repositories and waiting to put data into them. So let’s get on with that, then. In a temporary directory create your ferrari and bugatti folders here, and in them create the standard Trunk, Tags, and Branches (TTB). Now switch into the two directories and run svn […]
