IPv6style is seriously worth the visit. I found it to be easy to read and provide plenty of serious code samples and helpfull pictures to explain anything.

overnet gui clc

Friday, October 31st, 2003

(in response to this post) okay so the main thing that the overnet GUI is missing is a command line client that can be used externally (i.e. certain commands can be scripted via task scheduler, etc.). So after a bit of pain I’ve made one: binary, source I can’t get it to read the console […]

Hosted By

I am truely […]

.Net SqlClient sometimes throws a General Network Error during a DataAdapter.Fill or DataReader.Read. This is starting to become extremely annoying. Several other people are having troubles with it so I know it’s not just me (post #1, post #2, post #3). The question remains wtf is going on.

Friday, October 10th, 2003

Well I rocked up at work today expecting to work a bit more on the sql stored proc for version 3 of the application, only to have the guy working on the far-more-important version 2.5 page call-in sick. Hey Nurm can do it. Yea like I’m probably the only one who had a chance at […]

hack the planet, one cd at a time

Thursday, October 9th, 2003

SunnComm has a rather lame copy protection technique. The Register has had lots of fun describing the chaos the has ensued BMG obviously didn’t test the product very well before they bought into it.

mod_perl figured out

Thursday, October 9th, 2003

mod_perl has been figured out. If you’re going to use it make sure you read the Alternative Environments section of the movabletype manual. It makes so much more sense now
