Well I didn't get a chance to read some of PP like I had hoped over the weekend. I usually read right before going to bed, but I've found out that if I read non-fiction I can't sleep as I lie there and ponder what I've just read. I'll have to make some time earlier in the night to get through the book. Probably right after I get home from work, because that's a good time to pause for the day.
I did complete most of the other tasks I had set for myself over the weekend. Subversion, Bugzilla and a "coming soon" web page are all in place. I setup the repository and even checked in a skeleton of the project code. Soon, I'll be able to flesh out the code and the project will be underway.
This morning at the office I found one small problem with Subversion. I'm able to use the repository from my home network, but I keep getting a password prompt when I try from my work system. I have a couple ideas of what the problem might be, which are:
I wish that I was receiving some kind of error message from Subversion. Just asking for a password doesn't give me any idea where things might be breaking down. I guess that's where mailing list archives, IRC and turning up the verbosity settings help.
There is some Perl related content coming, I promise. I just have to get the pre-requisites out of the way.
I sure haven't documented much of a journey here, have I? Let's just say I've been busy. Work has been really busy. I got married. (Thanks, Ovid!) I found out I'm going to be a father.
Last month I had an epiphany that showed me how far I had fallen from my goals. I've spent quite a bit of time examining how I spend my time and where changes are necessary. I'm going to cut out some of the time I spend gaming (but WoW is so shiny!) and use the time to read and work on a project to scratch a personal itch.
For reading my stack is going to start out with:
To get my project rolling I need to finish a few tasks, which are:
I'm sure more books and tasks will come up, but this is a good list to get started.
