JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [], and here [] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [] and my other blog []. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

Goldbergian Contraption

[ #2451 ]
So I fired up PFE.

"Oh, yeah, that's why I stopped working on GUICS...I needed to try to get CVS working!"

Big hurdle, that.

WinCVS is perhaps not the best way to learn how to CVS in general, but all the same, I'm missing something important here. I get the notion of 'checking out' and 'committing'. What I don't quite understand, I guess, is how to set all that up the first time. I don't have anything to check out or commit, and I can't seem to make CVS set it up.

I'm giving CVS until my next eyedrop dosage and then I'm just going to work in PFE with copious backing up.

I get the feeling the guy working on Sphereal has kind of a dim view of me. I'm a Win-luser, I don't know what CVS is, and I'm unfamiliar with PHP. Hopefully he won't decide I'm a complete waste of time before I can get a little educated...and if he does, that's okay too. There's only a few thousand projects on Sourceforge. :) No love lost.

Quick Addendum: Well, that wasn't fun. Cleared up a few errors only to end up with ones I don't understand. Time to go take my drops and scare up an iFAQ*.
