Well talking with the east coast developer about his
deployment process, I now can say the the dharma
transmission is complete, I now know that he should have
done that a long time ago! Better later than never I
suppose. At least his process is documented now. Why does
M$ insist on hiding key aspects of a process in options,
tab bars, and menu drop-downs? There's no logical flow to
it, you just have to 'know' where all these things are.
Anyway. The development team is making a shift from CVS to PVCS, our company standard now. Unfortunately, the powers that be didn't consider that a lot of the developers on the web team use Linux -- which PVCS is in the process of making available for linux developers, I think the PVCS group is feeding us their alpha versions. But I actually had a chance to go back to my Linux roots and play in console land at work. All I can say is ahhhhh.... Give me more, I want more!
Ilan, thanks for the tip, I was really hoping for some activeX help tho, I know that I at least have some chance of success with that. That should at least give you some indication of how fargone my lovelife is. ;) I mean, what am I doing working with this doomed technology? Actually, I won't have to work with it too much longer, this is purely for maintenance, most of our apps already run on unix systems, and we're using JSP, which I kinda like.
Never admit to knowing about something you never want to work with.
