Arrrgh, stupid easy-to-use things.

Dear Windows,

Why don't you have a better regedit. One where you can copy/paste/duplicate keys and stuff. And why is it so damn hard to run things on you, compared to unix, linux, and macos x?

Annoyed,
Ben

Dear XAMPP,

For being a all-in-one package (PHP, MySQL, Apache, etc. all in one easy installer), I love you so much. But why won't you let me downgrade Apache to 2.0.59?

Not so annoyed,
Ben

Dear Apache 2.0.59

You need to be slightly more userfriendly. Give me something to install yourself in the registry again. And let me modify that Apache monitor thing that.. is stupid, like the XAMPP monitor and only checks to see if the Apache2 service is active. Or something like that.

Story behind this post:
I'm trying to get a SVN server up and running on the Windows box. It's being a pain in the ass, 'cause the mod_dav_svn.so doesn't want to work with Apache 2.2, which comes installed with XAMPP. But the prebuilt Apache 2.0.59 doesn't seem to come with SSL, which might be a problem later. And I don't know/don't really want to try to compile Apache 2.0.59 on Windows. I don't know what I need, or how big of a hassle that might be.

I should probably just use svnserve. Really. That would be so much easier, right? Maybe I'll try to get that working first . . . . .

  • Grrr....

    ...SVN, why is it so damn hard to compile and install you? And why am I even doing this? I don't remember why I couldn't use the prebuilt binaries…

  • Vista: I am the shiny!

    Windows needs your permission to continue: "Vista is trying to be shiny. Allow or Deny?" I think that sums up Vista. (Running Ultimate) In more…

  • Arrrgh. Fucking Windows

    Hate you so much. Why don't you just work, goddamnit? I can take a mac hard drive, bring it to another mac, plug it in, and it'll boot properly off…
