What is this I don't even (NSFW for artistic nudity).
My Wikimedia blog: SOPA blackout post-mortem; Open Street Map beats Google Maps for business use.

Huge success at work automating every aspect of deployment with
mod_brainfuck Ant (with ant-contrib). Building a full-sized working replica Titanic from toothpicks, complete with iceberg. Bletcherous spaghetti hidden behind innocuous-looking macrodef or target calls. Lots to go, but we might even get all our stuff shifted to the new hosting in time. If your hammer is Turing-complete, one day you will have to use it as a screwdriver, spanner, soda siphon and nail.
(This is the largest substantial piece of actually useful coding I've ever done. I'm getting the thing where you wake up with the solution to yesterday's problem and have to LOG IN RIGHT NOW to get it down.)
Yesterday's problem is generating an arbitrary number of htusers files. With one, it's easy, the data goes like this and the code will follow obviously:
apache.htusers.file = appname-htusers
apache.htusers.list = user:letmein,admin:irl33t,email@example.com
However, one app just has to have two htusers files. And if two, then later three or four. So my question is: how to human-obviously represent the data for an arbitrary number of htusers files as name-value pairs in a .properties file? For now I've special-cased that app, but I'll need something better later. Update: The answer is to use an .ini file.
arkady is writing a novel (with cavalorn, eithin and me sniping from the sides), so is using the "inspiration shall strike every morning at 9:30am" method, and cranking through it nicely. And is successfully writing on an Android phone in a Google Doc when out and about. I've decided if I want to make music then I need to make music, and have determined that I shall write a complete something every day for a month. Even if it's entirely terrible, it just has to be a done and completed thing. This is in fact causing new stuff to pop into my head. I recommend the method. (I'm not linking any of it sans polish, because it's literally just sketches in LMMS. I might later.) If you can actually play, just get a guitar, a microphone and a copy of Audacity to record into, and PRODUCE.
Does anyone just happen to have the rule sheet for the In The Night Garden Rainbow Adventure Game? We just got it for 50p complete except the rules ... boardgamegeek doesn't seem to have heard of it.
