Granted, I can’t say I’m cursed, unlike this wayward baseball team:
Today, with a mere 2.5 weeks left in our summer at ExtremeBlue, we’re enacting a code freeze on our project in preparation for a huge site-wide demo on Thursday, a site-wide Expo next Wednesday, and a national Expo in Armonk, NY on August 10-11. By the end of the day today, all the major functionality that is in place will remain so (though we’ll take the next several days to polish things up, iron out bugs, and generally make the project ready for the eyes of the execs), and anything that hasn’t made it won’t ever.
So far, it’s been anything but uneventful, and it’s barely passed noon.
Actually, I have no issue with Lotus Notes itself. The problem lies in one of the mail servers: as of this morning, my permissions on the server were mysteriously revoked, along with those of a few of my coworkers (the ones whose accounts are on the same server as mine). Now, I can no longer access new emails or send anything out. I’m cut off from the email world. This isn’t a mission-critical issue, but it is awfully annoying nonetheless.
Dojo, Part 1
Again, no specific issue with Dojo itself. I am attempting to port instant messaging functionality implemented in one website through Dojo over to our project. I ran into problems (which wasn’t unexpected), so I created a more thorough testing environment to eliminate variables.
I’ve nearly cloned the environment in which the implementation works correctly, and it refuses to cooperate. It’s behaving almost as though the codebase is hardwired to work only from this one specific file and nowhere else. Which is completely contrary to how Dojo functions.
Dojo, Part 2
How in the BLOODY HELL does
work correctly in the first build, setting off a cascade of
GET requests for REST-style logins, and yet in the second build it gets a
403 Forbidden error from the REST server?
WHAT THE %(@!*(!@#%#.
Oh, and the login actually works, according to the application server’s LoginHandler. Yet another communication breakdown: SOMEONE FORGOT TO BLOODY TELL DOJO.
Ugh. I need a lolcat.
