Found a big bug in software that I didn't write but am quickly becoming responsible for. It's really bad. I was packaging the bugfix earlier today and it will be out tomorrow, hopefully.
My programming skills are warming up, and I anticipate that I will raise hell on the stuff that has been shoved my way. I'll be stomping bugs, optimizing/cleaning code, but probably a lot of effort will go into mucking with add-on packages.
A code repository is Coming Soon™, but I think we need to get a CVS book first.
I went over to The Railroad Club at the U of MN to see their model layout. Actually, I thought I was going to a sit-down meeting or something, but they were working on their layout in a back room of the 1701 building. My brother was there, and showed me their DCC controller setup, which is kind of nifty, but there's only one mainline so far. They're currently working on a helix to allow trains to move up and down levels, though there's really only one level at the moment.
Someone mentioned something about Free-mo layouts, modular setups that apparently run on 16V AC current, rather than the more standard 12V DC that most layouts do. Apparently. I'm curious and would like to know more about that, but that will have to wait for now.
I'm tired.Posted by mike at July 13, 2004 11:59 PM | Family , Software , Work | TrackBack
