dgsmonX 0.2.3 released patrick Sun, 24 Jun 2012 20:45

Version 0.2.3 of dgsmonX fixes a small but ugly bug introduced in 0.2.2: Instead of "no game waiting" dgsmonX would report "Check failed, no error details". Thanks to Hans for reporting this.

dgsmonX 0.2.2 released patrick Sun, 24 Jun 2012 01:55

I just released dgsmonX 0.2.2 (project page). This version should hopefully work again with DGS 1.0.15 (see previous post). If you encounter any issues, please let know by email.

DGS quick status page accepts user ID and password as arguments patrick Sat, 23 Jun 2012 19:45

The release of the Dragon Go Server software version 1.0.15 thoroughly broke dgsmonX because DGS no longer accepts unauthenticated game checks via quick_status.php. While working on a fix for this I happened to notice that quick_status.php accepts user ID and password as arguments. A corresponding URL looks like this: http://www.dragongoserver.net/quick_status.php?version=2&userid=foo&passwd=secret.

Site maintenance

Posted on: Fri, 15 Jun 2012 04:14 By: patrick

This site is undergoing maintenance: I am in the middle of upgrading from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7, and as you can see for yourself quite a few things do not yet work as they should. Thank you for your patience while I try to get everything back into shape.

Update, 19 June 2012: Most of the site should now work again as before. The former site theme (Sky) unfortunately is no longer available with the same design, so for the moment I'm leaving the site on the core theme, Garland. On the plus side: Comments are now protected again with reCAPTCHA.

Little Go 0.8.0 released on the App Store

Posted on: Wed, 25 Apr 2012 13:06 By: patrick

Today Little Go 0.8.0 (project page) has been released to the App Store. This version introduces iPad support, including hi-res icons for the retina display of the iPad 3. The user interface remains largely unchanged, though, and has not been adapted to take advantage of the larger screen estate available on the iPad.

Git and the Swiss army knife myth

Posted on: Sat, 25 Feb 2012 14:48 By: patrick

I just came across yet another article that touts Git as "a version control Swiss army knife". The comparison annoys me! I was born and bred in Switzerland, and I know from first-hand experience that a real Swiss army knife is small, handy and has only a few tools. In short, this: A real Swiss army knife

Git, on the other hand, is more like this:

A Swiss army knife abomination.

(I do like Git, but please don't compare it to a Swiss army knife).

dgsmonX 0.2.1 released patrick Sat, 07 Jan 2012 16:46

dgsmonX 0.2.1 is out already. This release addresses a compatibility issue with the previous release 0.2 (made one week ago) which made it impossible to launch the application on Mac OS X 10.5 and earlier. The new release should now work correctly on 10.5, but unfortunately support for Mac OS X 10.4 had to be dropped. Get the new version from the project page.
