Got my new laptop last week. It's a Dell Latitude D810 and it just rocks. Some of the specs:
- 128 MB Video RAM
- 2GHz Pentium M
- 1GB RAM
- 60GB 7.200 rpm disc
- 15x4'' screen, 1920x1200 resolution (widescreen)
- Built-in wireless, bluetooth, etc, etc.
And yes, it can run GTA:San Andreas at the same time as 1 VMWare image, WebSphere Studio + WebSphere test environment, Tridion, SQL Server, and synchronize the calendar with my phone without interrupting my game play ;-)
Favorite comments in someone else's code
I've been finding some pretty cool comments around here. Here's a few examples for you:
- //dirty hack, I know, but must have this running today
- <%-- Todo: error handling --%>
- <!-- This must be the most misleading error message I ever wrote -->
Isn't life great?
Interesting discussion: Are design elements part of your application content?
In the never-ending discussion on whether your application design elements belong to the realm of Application servers or content management, we've been having some very interesting discussions within Tridion.
Current conclusion: we will keep on storing design elements (images, style sheets, dynamic pages, etc) in the content manager and deploy them from there.
Let's talk dirty: Tridion Delivery Framework
Got to the "expert level" in TDF now. I can now use the power of tag libraries and cast spells like:
Display all components based on template "componentTemplateID":
Display page metadata field "Title":
Apply stylesheet to section:
<tdf:style xsl="/path/to/style.xsl" method="xml">
some html here
And, last but definitely not least, the great cache & search construct
-- here you have your html form with the search fields mapped to verity --
And I'm one day away from my holidays. I might still do a post tomorrow.
