Big gaps in time

  • 7th Jan, 2004 at 1:11 PM

My schedule is incredibly sparse. Large blocks of time are just free in the middle of the day. This could be a good thing, except it is an hour round-trip to walk home. Consequently I've been forced to stay at school.

I suppose this isn't too bad since I've been able to just hack and keep happy. My CS account expired last term, so it's completely empty. I figure I should take the time to actually write software that manages my dotfiles. Something to keep them in CVS. I assumed someone had done this before, but hefty Googling shows half-baked attempts that hard-code everything.

I guess I'm forced to write it myself. Does anyone want a copy after I'm done?

CVS homedir

Do you mean this LinuxJournal article?

It seems to be what I want for my system, but I'm scared of how conflicts will break my dotfiles... But then again, maybe that risk is marginal. I guess I'll scrap my system and try his.

Re: CVS homedir

I've looked harder at Joey's system, and I think there are some small flaws with it. I don't think checking your home directory straight out of CVS works best. I think you might be able to do it with 99% of your files, but then you might want some system-specific ones.

I envision a system with Make and diff3...
