Don’t get me wrong, I like the simplicity of the user interface in Atlassian Stash, what is too painful for me is the networking configuration between it and Apache HTTPD server.

I found it incredibly brain-dead that we as engineer, let alone an end-user consumer, are suffering from driver conflicts.  HV40 Camcorder The first discovery of this mundanity was a simple firewire port IEEE 1394 with Windows 7 […]

This lunchtime I upgraded WordPress on the server to 3.1 version I had a lot of trouble getting WP to Twitter plug-in into work out of the box. I though it was a chroot Apache problem, a missing executable, or some file permission issues with Ubuntu Linux. It was none of the above. This was […]
