Veracity 0.9.0 Releaseianolsen

Fri, 20 May 2011 20:39:40 +0000

I’m happy to announce the release of Veracity 0.9.0 today, which for the first time includes installers! Next week, Veracity will have been self-hosting for one full year. We began dogfooding Veracity on May 24th, 2010. We think it’s gotten pretty decent, and we’re ready to extend its audience beyond the people willing to build […]

Working With Your Handsianolsen

Thu, 29 Jul 2010 20:21:29 +0000

This week I had the pleasure of setting up a flat-panel TV for my mother-in-law.  I had to mount it, too.  This was particularly challenging because she has a 2-3 foot deep cabinet built into the wall, where her old CRT TV was installed.  The new LCD TV would be mounted on the wall at […]

Back from OSCONianolsen

Tue, 27 Jul 2010 16:35:16 +0000

Unveiling Veracity at OSCON last week was a ton of fun. I really enjoyed the surprising number of in-depth coversations I had with folks who are passionate about DVCS. The kids these days are giving lots of feedback via The Twitters, so I finally signed up as _ianolsen_. 😉

Unit Tests Are Not a Substitute for Your Brainianolsen

Fri, 17 Apr 2009 13:10:40 +0000

I spent all day yesterday getting unit tests to pass.  I’d set my module to run in one of two modes, then run the test suite.  I fixed all the test failures, then set my module to run in the other mode, and fixed all those failures.  Then I’d go back to the original mode, […]

Chrome is Really (Really) Goodianolsen

Wed, 03 Sep 2008 02:52:46 +0000

I’d like to join the other zillion people who installed Chrome today and exclaimed, in unison: wow! I installed Chrome 20 minutes ago, and I’m already impressed. On literally the first page I visited, I noticed a dramatic speed difference compared to Firefox. I don’t use IE frequently, but when I do it seems roughly […]

Idle Musingsianolsen

I wasn’t aware of Randy Pausch until the day he died. That day I watched his Last Lecture and wondered aloud, “How have I not heard about this guy until just now?” Even my wife had heard of him. (I guess he was on Oprah? Seriously.) I find his story very inspiring as a fellow […]

Summer TanianolsenTan Lines

Mon, 05 May 2008 14:52:28 +0000

With Memorial Day just around the corner, we’re entering the season where I inevitably endure comments from friends and family with respect to my tan, or lack thereof. So in an effort to prevent the shock and awe the apparently occurs when I don a pair of shorts, I present this guide.

How to Melt Your Web Serverianolsen

Thu, 10 Apr 2008 16:50:39 +0000

Wow. Self-employment has made Jeff bold! Incendiary, even. We Don’t Use Software That Costs Money Here: It’s tempting to ascribe this to the “cult of no-pay”, programmers and users who simply won’t pay for software no matter how good it is, or how inexpensive it may be. These people used to be called pirates. Now […]

Vista Folder Views and My Newfound Curmudgeonryianolsen

Thu, 10 Apr 2008 14:55:57 +0000

If Vista decides, one more time, that the appropriate columns when looking at a folder full of C# source code is Artists, Album, Genre, and Rating, I’m going to go postal. I keep fixing it, and everything’s fine for a few weeks, and then it does it again. Yes. I have SP1 installed. This morning […]
