i love portfolio

well, I finally got around to re-indexing my image cds. I am done with 13 of 50+ and I have already found images for new pieces and old images that simply need to be printed.
Too bad Canto has been so damn slow with the OS X conversion. Oh well. Screw em.
Now if only portfolio had more keyboard shortcuts.
I still need to start on my own app to index video files and generate batch capture lists. The stuff I have seen for this focuses solely on logging and then capturing. I want to be able to search for subclips in my archived, off-line tape captures and generate FCP projects for those files.
Hmmm. This post is not particularly all together. Kinda scattered today.....

digging into movable type

aside from being a great way to keep a notebook/journal of my current state of mind, movable type is a great little perl application.

I am starting to break it down and see what makes it tick.

From a web design perspective, they have done everything right. XHTML compliance, stylesheets for the design, etc. I haven't looked far enough to see if the actual application is as flexible.

What I like the most about MT is that it is built around a set of custom modules. This is the model I want to look into more deeply. A mod_perl approach would be great, but obviously require more configuration when the application is deployed.

I will update as I dig into it.

Yay! Did it!!!

Allright, now we're talking.

I finally have php 4.3.0, MySQL 3.23.X, apache 1.3.27 and mod_perl 1.27 installed!

I ripped out the default perl install from redhat 8, as well as php, mysql and mod_perl, since they were all using the latest stuff. I, of course, only have books and tuts on mod_perl 1. grrr.

Anyway, I have some books coming from Sams for mod_perl and apache 1/2 stuff, so that should help out with that.

Tracey, Juliana and I will be heading out to do a little shopping here in a little bit, but when we get back, more Perl!!!!

lots of configuration

well, last night I recompiled perl 5.8.0 on my redhat 8 system.

It actually went pretty smoothly, but there were latin8->utf8 problems. I don't actually know what that means, but i had trouble compiling a bunch of modules. ;)
