Night fueled with coffee, project maintenence, laundry and a failed attempt at sleep.

I think I'll leave the office early today. My spirit is 25 yrs old but my body is over twice that.

@33MHz ..Ability to assign scripts to run pre or post launch and set a service launch timeout if needed.

It's all quite simple.
@GTWilson
@33MHz Cuts a complicated init script down to a simple 15 lines and allows me to specify exactly which services need to be running prior to launch.
@GTWilson
Uncomfortable admission: I kind of like the way systemd handles services now that I have implemented several.
@GTWilson
@jws It's always the quick and dirty hack hidden deep in the project and forgotten that bites you. At least those bit us when we made the 64 bit port.

@doctorlinguist
@GTWilson
@jws I had to call that frequently. It could get pretty hairy. Also,it did not help that the actual behavior of some of the stuff differed from their documentation
@GTWilson
Now that I have systemd sanitized all the things (even the obscure things), I feel soiled.
@GTWilson
@33MHz That's not a normal feeling?

@jws My endian hell period was when we were doing the PalmOS integration.
@GTWilson
@jws Restructuring that beast would be a nightmare.
@GTWilson
@jws Not really. A lot of networking code all over the project. The Linux and Windows differences there are so stark.
@GTWilson
About to change my career title to #ifdef engineer.

I hate multi-platform C++
@GTWilson
@doctorlinguist Right?! Alas, I have to confine those sorts of things to the XHTML comments.
@GTWilson
@doctorlinguist …It's never a good idea for me to digitally format a book when I am bored.
@GTWilson
@doctorlinguist I nearly let one of Sidekick's books go out with a chapter that began,

"Jane was nearly trampled by a mob screaming, "Gojira!", as she left the cafe. As the Earth trembled beneath her feet, she knew Muscle Shoals would never be the same"
@GTWilson
@doctorlinguist That is priceless!
@GTWilson
["Old Tools For Old Tools"] would probably not fly as a build tag either.

I'll leave it blank.
@GTWilson
m4_define(i5_release, 48)
m4_define(i5_schema, 65)
m4_define(i5_buildtag, ["You people suck all the joy out of my life"])

I should probably change that tag before the final build.
@GTWilson
@mandy People are throwing judgement out the window and having ragegasms back and forth.

By the time I got done muting people, I realized there was no point because I'd be left with vendors and promoted ads.
