Better late than never (having sent this to myself last weekend via Webmail and not touched till today): Scriptomatic 2.0 is here. The description from the download is indeed very teasing:

A completely new version of the famous Scriptomatic, the utility that writes WMI scripts for you. (And, in the process, teaches you the fundamental concepts behind writing WMI scripts for yourself.) Unlike its predecessor, Scriptomatic 2.0 isn’t limited to writing just VBScript scripts; instead, Scriptomatic 2.0 can write scripts in Perl, Python, or JScript as well. In addition, Scriptomatic 2.0 gives you a host of new output formats to use when running scripts, including saving data as plain-text, as a stand-alone Web page, or even as XML. Scriptomatic 2.0 handles arrays, it converts dates to a more readable format, and it works with all the WMI classes on your computer; on top of all that, it also writes scripts that can be run against multiple machines.

Next Friday, the German ASP and .NET communities will converge in Bad Ischl, Austria, for their annual non-technical meeting: the Community Wintercamp 2005. On the agenda, so to speak: skiing, sledging, local hospitality (not to mix up with local hospitals!) and a lesson in beer brewing as well as consumption. It looks like the weather is very, very kind to us too: snow all over the place and it'll keep snowing for the next few days. Hooray!

On my list of things to check out: PostgreSQL 8.0.0. Let's see how this baby stacks up against competing database systems.

Bernhard came back from the holidays with a great idea for our next hole of .NET Golf on the code fairway (currently only German, but we do plan to offer the fairway to non-German communities). We have ironed out the details, and come up with a test implementation together with Mike (of #develop fame). Hopefully, we'll (Alex, that is) also be able to get the automated tester up and running for this hole. In closing: this time, we do have a grand prize for the winner!

So, if you are German speaking and an avid .NET programmer, come join us on the fairway!

Basically, this job is as easy as:

  1. Dump the repository on the old server
  2. Load the dump into a new repository on the new server

Dumping is explained here, and I won't go into detail because I wasn't the one doing it, Roman did it (I ain't touching a BSD box, more harm than good would result).

However, step two is in my ballpark, because the repository is moving to a Windows box. Two commands and you are up and running again (it can take quite some time, especially if your dump is like mine - a little over 528 MB!)

svnadmin create c:\repositories\fidalgo
svnadmin load c:\repositories\fidalgo < "e:\fidalgo.dump"

All that is left to do now is to restore the configuration and hooks (details in my last blog post on Subversion)

In closing, credit where credit is due: I gathered some inspiration from the following blog entry: A Rank Amateur Upgrades His Subversion Repository

Remember me complaining about InCD and how it gobbles up memory so you cannot use more than 1GB of physical memory with VirtualPC? Well, sometime in December I threw v4.3.0.5 off my machine to finally be able to use the full 2GB. Today I decided to risk a reboot or two to give v4.3.11.1 a shot - and Jehova! the new version works as expected. No more out of memory issues! Using InCD? Get the latest version here.

Today, I got my silicone jacket as well as the car to USB adapter for my SPV C500. Both live up to my expectations, especially the silicone jacket should help keep the dust out!

It feels good to be no longer grounded by the doctor, especially because this means that my Webcast next week is no longer in danger of being cancelled: ".NET development for free with #develop" (MSDN: .NET-Entwicklung zum Nulltarif mit SharpDevelop is the orginial title, because this Webcast is in German). I will be talking about what cool things you can do with #develop, how it was built, and what the future holds for this free (cost-wise et al) lightweight development environment. Join Uwe and me on Monday 17th @ 4pm (understanding German being a rather big bonus).
