Fools Gold

Just saw a hilarious movie, Fools Gold. It starts with these two hopeless idiots diving… the manage to sink their own boat, without even knowning it xD. Fin and his Ukrainian sidekick Alfonz manage to survive, only for Fin to be late to his own devorce. Throw in a rich guy with yacht, a daughter who redefines the words “Air head” and “Bimbo”, and things just snow ball from there in search of treasure!

Oh man, it brings backs some memories, I really miss Florida about now…

Something wrong? Why would anything be wrong? We just had sex in a church – and we’re not even married – and now we’re gonna dig up a grave! I mean, what is that, like a triple sin? I’m surprised we haven’t been struck by lightning.


How crazy can you get? >_>

Installed DF:BHD & patched it yesterday, to pass some boredom. About halfway to 2/3 through it, and I’ve noticed that it has become buggy as heck lol.

So far I’ve had…

  • Random crashes, maybe AI or Geometry related
  • Fell though a solid wall — wow
  • the shotgun has become a paper weight; give me a M9

One thing that both pleased, and pissed me off… in the mission to night-sneak into a building a few blocks down, without being detected. I kept perfect stealth until the AI decided to “take point”, walk into the light, and get us shot at lol.

The AI also can’t cover worth crap.

Two irksome things on one mission, about to drop down a hole and one of the NPC shouts, “think we should flash’em?”, and the PC replys, “Hell YES”. I had already dropped my flash before the exchange, and guess what — I drop down, the bang landed in their faces and nothing worked ^_^

The auto-reload on weapons dry, and auto-reload on ammo-box pick up is also as annoying as I remember. When the gun goes dry, ya don’t reload – you draw a pistol and keep movin’ but, I guess the developers never thought about that. Stumbling over an ammo-box and nearly dying, because you are suddenly stuck reloading a CAR-15 in a shoot-out ain’t nice either ^_^

git rules, cvs drools

Hmm, after a using git for all of my stuffs these past few days…..

CVS can go rot in hell, someone actually wrote a real system 😉

As much as I try to keep my OpenBSD box lean & mean, git is fairly light on runtime dependencies:

Terry@vectra$ cat /var/db/pkg/git-                            

libiconv is required by other things I use, and I believe gettext depends on it, and a lot of stuff uses gettext lol (uh, almost everything). curl and rsync are also useful to have around, and rsync I actually would want installed anyway (just in case I need it someday). So really, there is no serious dependency issue from it, since OpenBSDs standard git package doesn’t include the TK gui tools like FreeBSDs does. TBH, although I usually keep tcl/tk on my development systems, I never use tcl or tk-bindings. And I really have no desire to use any git front ends, nor gitk/git-gui for that matter.

Using git after getting used to living with CVS for so long, I can’t help but wonder….. why the **** anyone uses CVS anymore. Even Subversion is easier to live with then CVS, but not always a fun thing to install/manage at times, ‘least it is well documented (and tirival for cvs users to pick up hehe).

git… simple, effective, fast, and not brain damaged.

Finally…. I got some sleep.

Skipped the computer totally, set the TV to something good (Aliens hehe), and succeeded in mission plan…. be snoring before 0100R. Woke up around 0900, then went back to bed until 1300 since it was a day off work hahahaha.

Now I feel like running a marathon…

A quick conversion from cvs to git


  • I store all files related to services under /srv, or provide symbolic links.
  • Personal files are stored in a CVSROOT of :ext:Terry@vectra:/srv/cvs/ and are filed under module ‘Terry’, for lack of a better name lol.
  • server is vectra, workstation is dixie; communication done via the Secure SHell protocol.
  • I don’t use graphical software for these kind of tasks. GUIs are available, but I don’t want them wasting my time
  • The contents of my personal CVS module will be stored in it’s own spot as ‘cvs-head’ for backup purposes: I have no plans of committing to CVS or merging stuff back into it.
  • Access git is more or less just me and occasionally root@hostname, but may be expanded later
OpenBSD server:
# su - root
# pkg_add git cvsps
# groupadd -g 2005 git
# cd /srv/
# mkdir git
# chmod 7755 git
if you want to lock down the CVS, go to the CVSROOT
and revoke write access on your modules files
e.g. chmod -R ugo-w fooproject
# cd git
# git cvsimport -ikv -d /srv/cvs -C cvs-head Terry
# mkdir Terry
# chmod 0750 Terry; chown Terry:git Terry
# su - Terry
$ cd /srv/git/Terry
$ git init
FreeBSD workstation:

$ su - root
# pkg_add -r git
# pw groupadd -n git -g 2005 -M Terry
# exit
$ git clone vectra:/srv/git/cvs-head /tmp/Terry
$ cd /tmp/Terry; mv * .* ~/
$ cd ~
$ git remote add origin vectra:/srv/git/Terry
$ git push origin master

In a little while, I’ll probably refine things. Originally, I used the old mv file.ext file.c-vN.M and (cd ..; tar cf – project | gzip -c > /tmp/project-N.M.tar && mv /tmp/project-N-M.tar ./project/backups/) style approaches to my stuffs. The first time I went into using a source code management / version control system for a project, I selected Subversion (also known as svn) and enjoyed it quite a lot. Later on, when I decided to start checking in my configuration files, well… I like to keep my OpenBSD box pretty lean & mean; thus I used what came in the base, which was cvs (concurrent versions system). Subversion and CVS are so much alike, that I could live with CVS very easily (after all, it’s just my config files and an occasional project). I prefer svn to cvs, but hey, I’m a cheap bastard!

I’ve been thinking over the merits of Subversion, Bazaar (bzr), and git for various projects. I generally ruled out Monotone on inputs from another programmer, and having a general lack of interest in it myself. I also considered Mercurial (also known as hg), but I’m more familiar with git then hg. One of my friends uses hg for submitting patches to Mozilla and what not, and there is a project I’m involved with that I feel would benefit from using bzr; but either of those would mean a dependency on Python. Despite my levels of fluency in Python, my file server doesn’t have need of a scripting language like Ruby or Python; because OpenBSD provides Perl, SED, and AWK. So for me, git is a smaller package and it is just as easy to choose to pickup git as it is bzr. My workstation will always have Python, but that’s because I write python code lol.

Several of my various micro-projects use git on my work station, because there is no real need to stick them in the CVS server – and I don’t like CVS or rcs enough to employ them for the task lol. I’ve also considered replacing cvs with git on my laptop, and using it to fire off final commits to the CVS server, but eh… fuck CVS.

Sleep, rest, peace… do I even know the meaning of these words anymore?
