so another interesting day, woke up too late to seriously play with anything before going out. Played with my parents friends p133 and sorted out a few problems, then spent the rest of the afternoon reading up on cvs. I then lost in a game of badminton and returned home to play with cvs.
CVS woes: I'm playing with cvs in order to check out gnome2, so I was dumbfounded when I was refused connection to anonymous cvs at gnome.org. I tried cvs from my other machine - connects fine convinced it's a config problem I try playing with the settings. Four hours later when my other machine gets bounced trying to log in to cvs I realise that the machine I'm tring to log in from has cached the ip adress of a borked server, change the command to use the ip address of a working server and I'm in first time. Ah well live and learn, prehaps had I known cvs on this machine works then I would have noticed straight away but this was the first time I'd used cvs on it and another server a friend had pointed me at had also refused me.
I'm now too tired to actually bother checking out gnome2 from cvs, I'll leave that for tommorow I think, well I've got to have something to look forward to whilst I'm at work.
