HG Convert using Tortise HG

Create a file that contains the folders you want to withhold from the new repository

e.g. skipfiles

hg convert --filemap skipfiles "source folder" "dest folder"

Where skipfiles contains a directory of folders or files to not include in mercurial.  This will create a new repository out of the old one and have no trace of those original folders in the new repository. Useful for making your repository smaller, if it gets too big.

Also, when using non code assets like images and other binary files. Try using BiTorrentSync This seems to be quite fast.

Shark infested waters...again


You'd think I'd learn to stop messing with computers. So a few days ago our router went out, so none of our laptops could access the internet. We ordered a new one. I got one that was wireless-N but also supports open firmware (tomato). Today, I got the router and set out to get it running. For a moment, I had the wired connection working. Tried a few different things, then I updated the firmware...Got dd-wrt working, then updated to tomato 1.28. Then nothing. It was as if the router was on but not alive, all the lights were steady green, just no internet connection.

While testing I realized my Ethernet port went bad and just stopped working? Seriously? I've been building computers for a dozen years and never seen one of those go bad. I tried everything including alternate computers, cables, direct plug to router. And well, it was just bad. Sigh, anyway...

I basically had no computers working and multiple failed components.

Then I said a prayer (best way to get out of shark infested water)

I then read that tomato does not default to DHCP. A static ip address and gateway fixed that problem. I logged on finally (to tomato 1.28) and I got wireless working. Then, I had to replace the new Ethernet port (I got wireless).

Nothing like a little help from above to exit shark infested waters.

Lately, I haven't been able to open the records because something wasn't right with java.

To fix, I had to set the file extension .aspx to use java webstart.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\javaws.exe

New Ride

Got a new Ride today.
2007 Shelby Mustang GT.
This thing hungers to tear up the road
You can feel the engine saying, "Please, let me go. Let me show you what I can do!"

Anna made me say the following against my will.
"Okay, so the car really isn't my own. My boss had access to it and let me take it home and drive it for a few days."
If I had $20,000 extra and I didn't know what to do with it, this would be tempting.

Newport Beach

Went to Newport Beach today (June 11) with Shawn and Heather and their family. While there, we went on the pier and of all things, we found a pelican just waddling along.
It let the kids get real close. We think it was injured.

We also saw a bunch of fishermen, they were fishing for Mackrel. They threw in these lines with a dozen hooks on and they would pull out like 3-7 fish at a time. It was crazy.

Went to the Padres game with my lady
(Padres = Major League Baseball)
It was quite fun, we had great seats. Our team hit a homerun.
The Braves beat the Padres 10-1. At least we got to see lots of action!
