Nick’s Public Code Repository Update

Some of you may remember the TextScrubber project I was writing about back on my Embarcadero blog.  (I’ll update that page really soon, like today…).  I’ve made two changes with that project:

  1. I’ve updated it to allow you to set it to run automatically on Windows startup.
  2. I’ve moved the repository from SVN and SourceForge over to Mercurial and BitBucket.

Now this may be a bit of an inconvenience to some of you, and I apologize.  First, if you don’t have the Mercurial command line tool installed, you should.  I’d venture to say that if you don’t have at least the command line tools for SVN, Git, and Mercurial installed, you can’t really call yourself a  true developer.  Second, I’m a Mercurial guy, and BitBucket is Mecca for Mercurial guys.  So you can get the code there.  Third, since I am now a Mercurial guy, SourceForge is no longer my cup of tea.  I’m going to move all my code there over to BitBucket.  (Note – this will not include the TurboPower projects, which I don’t consider “my code”….). 

My intent is to make my BitBucket page a central location for my code. I’ve created a “NickDemoCode” project to publish code I use to demonstrate things.  I’ve got a couple of other small projects there as well. I’d like to do what Marco did and have it be part of nickhodges.com, but I can’t seem to figure out how to do that.  (Anyone have any ideas? My ISP is pretty unhelpful, and this is not my area of expertise….)

So, if you are into great, awesome code, I’d recommend checking for updates to my public repository every 15 minutes or so.  You don’t want to get left behind.  Winking smile
