Snuck out a new development version of OpenIT even though I’ve been swamped at work lately. Work this morning included watching lots of progress bars which lends itself well to bug fixing OpenIT on a seperate machine. A SourceForge.net user, hofrichter, submitted lots of very specific bugs complete with line numbers and even a few fixes. I love users like this, although no one ever sends patches – just line numbers, comments, and the occassional code snippet.
Perhaps this is a side effect of PHP being so easy to hack: it takes longer to generate & e-mail a patch then it does to open the source and fix a problem.
Oh and last night I finished reading Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim by David Sedaris which was wonderful and incredibly funny. It was a Christmas gift from my wife and greatly appreciated after spending the last 3 months analyzing a C# textbook for the class I was teaching.
