Thanks to Geoff Eldridge to remind me I have this diary!
Sometimes I get lost by the too many things I do. Maybe I
should buy an extra brain (er... maybe just _a_ brain)
To sum up 6 months of silence, I don't work for Schlumberger
anymore. I do some internal work at Alplog, developping an
intranet with some strange techniques involving the files
being retrieved from a database, not from a local disk. Does
anyone know of an Apache module which can do that? Currently
we use servlets, but the drawback is, the files in the
database can only be static, and we would like to add some
JSP (PHP and so on) stuff too!
Scoop is currently dormant. We found some interesting
results, like the fact that the current "once" construct may
be used to create thread-local *AND* process-wide objects,
thus closing a war which has flamed for too long. Consider:
my_object: MY_OBJECT is
-- this object will be thread-local (if MY_OBJECT is
-- not a separate class; otherwise, see below)
my_unique_object: separate MY_OBJECT is
-- this object will be process-wide unique!
Tonight I'm in holidays. I go to a "classe de neige", i.e. I
go skiing with 30 10-year pupils and their teacher. I look
forward having some fun!
During this time I'll let my brain home. ;o)
I'll be back online Saturday March 9th.
