    GPLify is a Perl script that adds notice of the GPL to a collection of source files. It can alternatively use a customized template file to put at the top of source files. It requires String::Trigram.

    What I should really do (and would if I wasn’t at work and in the air) is modify this program and release it as BSDify, which would of course be released under the GPL license.  How much brain-hurting fun would that be?

  • HTTPHeaders

    HTTPHeaders for IE looks very cool:

    ieHTTPHeaders is an explorer bar for Internet Explorer that will show you the HTTP Headers IE are sending and receiving.

    Scope is a framework built around an extensible implementation of the Hierarchical Model-View-Controller (HMVC) pattern similar to the pattern described in HMVC: The layered pattern for developing strong client tiers . It provides an easy-to-use Java library that can be used as a basis for component-oriented application development following the layered architecture detailed in Sun’s J2EE and in Cheesman/Daniels: UML Components .

    Applications developed using Scope are “view-agnostic”: a Swing application uses the same infrastructure and patterns as a web application that happens to use XML/XSLT to generate HTML, or a JSP-based application. The framework has been used in production systems built using the default Swing and XML/XSL Servlet implementations, as well as proprietary VoiceXML, ColdFusion and custom XML/XSLT implementations.

    Scope 1.0.1 is out.

  • How Was Your Day?

    Mark Pilgrim turned 30:

    This is how I turned 30: standing in my bathroom wearing nothing but a pair of latex gloves, holding a wet cat in mid-air.

    Quick update–

    Something happened at the house this evening.  Everyone is ok.  I’m going to be out of town tomorrow evening through thursday evening.  I’m in Florida visiting the folks.  I planned the Florida trip a few weeks ago, and it’s unrelated to the events this evening.  Details will follow, but it wasn’t the end of the world.

    Update: 3:00am.  If the quality of posts degrades significantly, it’s because I’m not going to be able to sleep tonight.  My little sister was allergic to my friend’s cat, so we’re back at the house and I’m on watch.

    7.00am Well I was able to sleep for a few hours…
