When I was 20, had you told me the quantity of Liquid Wrench and Astroglide I would use in my life, I would have never believed you.

Subversion Error Message On Branch/Tag September 15, 2011 11:21 amPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Programming, Technology
Today’s tech problem:
I am trying to create a new baseline for my code. I have checked my code out of my repository, updated individual files to the proper version for the baseline, and then when I try to tag or branch the working copy, I get an error.
Error Commit Failed (details follow):
Error already exists
Because of the failure, the branch attempt, or tag attempt, fail leaving the branch/tag empty.
How can the file already exist if the branch/tag starts out completely empty?add a comment

Ron Paul Speaks the Truth! September 13, 2011 10:08 amPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Politics, Touchy Subjects, United States, World Politics
I have to hand it to Ron Paul. Rick Santorum, attacking Ron Paul, gets applause while showing his ignorance of US foreign policy. When Ron Paul explains, Ron Paul gets boo’d. This exemplifies how Republicans govern on fear and how the Republican audience fails to comprehend the more complex issues at hand.
Let me rephrase:
Ron Paul speaks, we have bases on their sacred land, we mistreat the Palestinians, over the past decade we’ve killed thousands of their people. Audience reacts with boos.
Rick Santorum, Republican poster child, speaks, they hate us because of our lifestyle. Audience reacts with cheers.
Are the American people really that full of themselves?add a comment
There are no girl Jedi! September 8, 2011 11:29 amPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Daily Life, Evan, Family, From the mouths of babes, Of Being Dad
While having coffee one morning at Mojoe’s Trailside Coffeehouse, one of the customers mentions her girl will be attending Jedi camp. Oh! I have to get Evan into this and sure enough, he finds a slot just before the camp fills up. Camp is the last week of June 2011 and Evan had a blast!
Fast forward to today, September 8, 2011, and I’m having coffee in Mojoe’s and talking to the wonderful mother who turned me onto Jedi camp. In the grand scheme of Evan’s life, an enormous amount of time has passed between Jedi Camp and today. The mother says, "Your son is Evan right?" The gears start turning in my head as she continues, "Evan and my daughter had a fight." My heart sinks. The mother smiles, "Evan told my daughter that girls cannot be Jedi. And my daughter argued with him and told him about the women in the Clone Wars." After a chuckle, we talk about little minds, the funny things they produce, and amazement at the fact that the two are still talking about and remembering Jedi Camp. Good times!add a comment
