Subversion Using Experiences

February 28, 2007

If you like PuTTY, you should know who Simon Tatham is. He wrote a great article about his experience with Subversion. I think it is worth to read if you are thinking to switch from CVS to Subversion. http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/svn.html

Programmer: Programming, Googling, Copy and Paste?

February 27, 2007

In my life, I knew a guy. He is the system administrator of my CS department When I was in the college. I worked for him as an assistant. He likes to write any programs for any tasks if he thinks the computer can help in terms of saving time. He wrote a lot of tools for network/system admin, web applications and system backup. When he is coding, I never see he refers to a programing book or Internet. He just opens a terminal and uses vi to start a project from the scratch. I have to admire his programming ability. I always dream I can program like him… Just read this article and have a question – what a good programmer should be?

Code Monkey

February 23, 2007

Jonathan Coulton:

Code Monkey get up get coffee
Code Monkey go to job
Code Monkey have boring meeting
With boring manager Rob
Rob say Code Monkey very dilligent
But his output stink
His code not “functional” or “elegant”
What do Code Monkey think?
Code Monkey think maybe manager want to write god damned login page himself
Code Monkey not say it out loud
Code Monkey not crazy, just proud

Here is the whole lyrics http://www.jonathancoulton.com/songdetails/Code%20Monkey

Here is the funny video on yourtube – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4Wy7gRGgeA
