26 September 2008 - 5:01pmSubversion and other things
It’s been a long time. I’ll try to give updates on as many things as I can think of in no particular order:
Nothing much new here. Joelle and I continue to brainstorm about miscellaneous pieces of the wedding, but we haven’t made any concrete plans in quite some time.Â Keep an eye out on our wedding blog for updates as they come.
Tonight I decided to tackle the task of installing and configuring Subversion with Apache and WebSVN. I would have liked to do it using the Apache installation on my Windows computer, but alas, Windows sucks (I would never pay money for it). As a second option, I turned to an Ubuntu virtual machine created using VirtualBox (which I can run all the time thanks to my recently upgraded 4GB of RAM). Installation of Subversion is really easy, it’s the following configuration of Apache and WebSVN that was the tough part. I used a combination of this guide, this guide and finally found this template for WebSVN that looks excellent. I now have a working Subversion repository where I can store any projects I decide to work on (something anyone working on a development project should probably be doing).
Work’s been alright lately. I’ve had some interesting tasks involving VB scripts to look at (one was an Excel macro that I wrote, one was updating a script that queries Active Directory). I’ve also been working on some documentation here and there.
I looked at classes for next semester today. My tentative course load looks like this:
- CS 444 – Operating Systems
- CS 445 – Compiler Design
- COMM 444 – Unix Web Administration
- CS 464 – Game Development (?)
- EC 350 – Microeconomics (?)
I’m not completely sure about the last two yet. CS 464 may not actually be offered since it’s pending approval right now and I don’t really know if I want to take Microeconomics or not. I’ll probably end up doing at least one, if not both, of them.
That’s about all I can come up with at this point. Hopefully I’ll start posting more often again.
