Its been a while since an update. I've however not been entirely idle. I've updated to the latest GNU Classpath CVS version, which only added the java.io.Console class. But I found the Console class to be needed by the egit Git Hub client. Sadly, egit also requires some annotation stuff found in the not yet implemented "javalangreflect" library. Its a library with only one method in it, so it shouldn't be a biggie. Its just a matter of, well, doing it.

What is Copycat?

Copycat is a new project for which I will copy parts, or maybe even everything, from a program. Just to see if I can manage to get the exact same part done. Of course I will write about it how I did it. Call it a learning experience. Take for example the utility Ranger from […]

Switching back

I knew I had not done anything on the File Manager for some time but that the last post was almost a year ago even surprised me. That is probably also the last time I did any programming on it. I even had to read back to see what I was up to at that […]

Moving stuff around

Long time no see! No wonder: we just moved to a new house, which usually means lots of things to deal with and boxes wherever I look. (I hate this soo much! I badly need my daily routine, but how can I find my stuff?!) Finally, we are getting settled again and I was able to dig up the good ol' Amiga again under the pile of boxes. And this new house is just awesome, so it worth all the pain we went through.

Filesystems

The errors I reported in my previous column did not go away. I ended up formatting the DH2 partition using SFS/02 to see how that will work. It has the same problem as JXF that there are no recovery/fixing tools once something goes bad. Seeing as it only happened once with JXF I don’t worry much […]
