For the last while I've been doing a whole lot of random tasks. . . which reminds me... I watched austin powers last night and laughed till I hurt over the charachter, random task. Anyhow... what got my goat today?
I have been working on a VSS to CVS conversion script from "laine"... www.laine.org . . . Anyhow, my manager boss man handed me this script last week and said, "its perl, you know perl, go at it... I couldn't get it to work, it dies here..." and he handed me a stack of printouts of emails he'd recieved from the author, so I assumed mistake mistake? that the problem was in the script. So, we're running cygwin in win 2k pro... Yes. So, anyhow, I hack at this crazy perl and get it nearly working by today under cygwin, when I get an email. "Try new version from laine... under DOS." So, I set it up, and it works. *grr*. Its a really scary script. 15 lines of undocumented regexes all operating on $_... scary.


ASP XMLRPC: If anyone is interested to see the adaptation I've made of this asp xml rpc client, email me, and it'll motivate me to work on this thing at work... document it perhaps. Anyhow... bye.
