melt with you

today's high on potrero hill: 97.3F

every time I visit the wunderground forecast for San Francisco the fog gets pushed back another two or three days.

it's not ever really going to arrive is it.

time to get cozy with MySQL (thanks for the pronunciation pointers. now I know the WebGuy was a microsoftie) and see if I can get my little version of Movable Type to work with it. then I can actually start evaluating its usefulness to us. I really hope it doesn't end up being a bust because then I'm going to have to learn Mambo and I have a feeling it is even more complicated and has hidden requirements that will necessitate hours of reading.

but hey. it will look good on the CV once the project is up and running.

mysql runs. I don't know what to do with it and I don't know if anything needs to be tweaked to run Movable Type but I think the next step is to install MT and see what happens.

then in my spare time I can read: the PHP website. the MySQL manual. the o'reilly Apache Definitive Guide.

oh and work on the dissertation.


no I don't know what rules I follow for capitalization anymore. I do it when I feel like it.

it's still fuggin hot in here.

well fuck me

much as google leaves out and misses and does not notice and otherwise allows to fall by the wayside, there are reasons always to use it first.

Installing Movable Type on Panther.

huh.

well it only took me this long to figure out I needed some driver thingees for Perl and MySQL that don't actually come with Perl or MySQL. the above hit turned up on a desperate google for instructions on how to find and install them.

huh.

tomorrow.





something tells me that OS X is going to result in some interesting manipulations of Unix to make it more user-friendly. I mean OS X is a user-friendly gui for Unix but it is missing a great deal of functionality for the geekier interweb projects that soon everyone will want to undertake. there is something waiting to happen here.
