Well, I did version control it with svn for a while, but given that almost all of it is written just by me, there's precious little point. Having backups is important though.

(x-post) yes, can't expect fixes quickly at work.

ilx version control


caek, Tuesday, 14 July 2009 23:34 (twelve years ago) link

In that, the only reason I would want version control is to maybe roll back an ill-advised change I had made to it... Which is something that basically never happens, but that I could do by using various backup mechanisms.

I don't fix bugs. I create workarounds.

On a related note, C++Builder 2009 needs to fucking die.

Ohh man array.sort gives different results depending on whether the contents of the array have themselves been sorted!


(still not sure what caused them to be in different order in the first place but whatev)

Holy shit there is some funky HTML in old-old-ILX comments. More than 188 posts with <HTML> in them, which threw up all sorts of parser bugs for me.

if lte IE 6 do this
if !IE 6 do this instead

how does "if not IE 6" not apply to IE 8? very retarded imo.

got jmagick compiling, finally - the makefile was trying to remove base path from current working directory to give relative path but was failing as the directory was a softlink and the two different bits of code were returning different names for the same place. solution was to move everything under /tmp and compile it there, install the target files and just not worry about the src files.

(jmagick is 3 times faster than the current method of doing the same thing (resizing images dynamically). target is 100 a second in a clustered environment of hefty servers. i am currently getting 50 in .53 seconds on my laptop using only one core...)

iirc there is no "!IE" conditional statement, so use "if gt IE 6"

fixed a bug in an xsl transform, using a workaround i found in a list post from 2003, that even then was described as only being necessary for old xsl transformation engines.

a daily wtf:

convert string to byte array, pass byte array to save method
in save method, convert byte array back to string, write string to file from 0 to bytearray.length

maybe useful if the save method takes a length in bytes. however it takes a length in characters. these are not necessarily the same. hello indexoutofbounds exception, at least a week of hair-pulling over assuming it was a problem with dodgy non utf-8 characters.

was going to post some Excel VBA mysteries/irritations but really Excel VBA is one big bug in itself

nevertheless, it is the only thing I can do that nobody else in the office has ever wanted to dirty their brain by looking into

(most annoying this week: using Application.Workbooks.OpenText to open a text file, specifying all the parameters, except if the file extension is .csv Excel overrides them without telling you. So I'm going to have to write some documentation that says "look, I know the file is a .csv file, but please call it .txt or anything except .csv or it will load wrongly in a way that you may not notice until it's too late")

how long will it take to learn that the problem may be in the data and not the programming... 2 hours of trying to locate an extra space in a string..............urgh
