written by Geoff Bowers on Friday, 19 May, 2006 @ 12:00 AM

After a long love affair with CVS we're finally moving to Subversion . There are several reasons for the move, and I thought I might outline those things that finally pushed us over the edge and some links to places I've found useful.

Standardising on Javascript Libraries

written by Geoff Bowers on Wednesday, 5 April, 2006 @ 12:00 AM

Trying to work out what Javascript libraries we should be concentrating on for FarCry core development. At the moment things are a little bit higgledy-piggledy and folks are implementing what they can to get things done. With that in mind, I've been researching a bunch of libraries that I think we should be concentrating on for future development, with a view to removing and reimplementing non-standard approaches as time allows.

written by Geoff Bowers on Sunday, 19 March, 2006 @ 05:00 PM

Sending out your blog as an email is not one of those things that immediately springs to mind for the RSS afficionado. I mean there are feed readers for your email client, feed readers for your desktop, feed aggregators and more chomping away at RSS.

mollio: to soften, make pliant.

written by Geoff Bowers on Friday, 17 February, 2006 @ 12:00 AM

Mollio is an ambitious project we're sponsoring to develop a set of HTML templates that can be easily skinned using CSS. Sort of like CSS Zen garden only a much more generic approach to the underlying HTML markup, that will hopefully be semanticaly more appropriate and easier to skin more varied content.
