Well I just couldn't stay off of the Long Path. So this weekend, I went along with a group of Tenderfoot scouts (the Troop 89 "NeoPatrol") to ToePath Mountain State Campground (outside of Middleberg). We decided to do a five mile hike, up Vroman's Nose, and along the Long Path into Middleberg. It was a great day, the views were awsome. The Schoarie valley is quite cool to look at from that perspective (and even driving in it). From there, we followed the Long Path to Middleberg to get ice cream. Of course, as we all know ;), the Long Path likes to follow hedgerows (along the edges of fields. This wouldn't be to bad in the summer, but in the fall, well to make a long story short, the fields were freshly manured a few weeks ago, so it was easy to get cow shit on your shoes. Oh well.

iMacLinux wise, stuff keeps being posted, and some new G&Hs are up. Have fun.

Anything else exciting? Well, I went on a rafting trip last week, and oh, I ripped some more Mp3s. Got to use the CD-RW drive someday.

Here is a mini script for getting Sourceforge CVS stuff (it's fast and easy, kind of a hack for myself):

# A very simple program to check out
# stuff from annonymous sourceforge CVS.
# (c)2000, Andrew B. Arthur, BSD License.

if [ $1 = "-help" ] then echo "CVSourceforge Update Options:" echo " -help: Print Help" echo " -d: Different Server and Package" echo " -n: Not A Sourceforge Server" exit 1 fi

clear echo " CVSourceforge Update" echo " ... a simple shell script to retrive CVS programs from Sourceforge" printf " (c) 2000, Andrew B. Arthur, BSD License\n\n"

# Package Name Input. printf "Please Enter Package of Choice: " read CVSPROGNAME # Input Required Prog Name

if [ $# -eq 0 ] then printf "\nDifferent Server Flag (-d) Not Enabled, will use same server and package name." CVSASERVER=$CVSPROGNAME read fi

if [ $# -eq 1 ] then printf "Please Enter Server Name: " read CVSASERVER #Read Server Name fi # Introduce User clear printf "Note: I will prompt you for a CVS password. You should just hit return when you get this prompt.\n\n" # Login in Annonymously cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.$CVSASERVER.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/$CVSASERVER login # Introduce to Update clear printf "\n\nUpdating or Creating CVS Now...\n\n" # Do The Actual Checkout. cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.$CVSASERVER.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/$CVSASERVER co $CVSPROGNAME printf "\nDone. \n"

I am also working on some majorly lame-o qbasic stuff (right now a stupid quik.conf file generator), I'll post it in the near future.

Okay, I'm out for bed. Thanks again.
