Letters to the CVS Repository

Our CVS repository has something against me. For some reason, there’s one image file that it conveniently forgets about every few weeks. Then, when I get latest version, the file is deleted, and I’m told that it’s not in the repository.

My latest check-in log:

CVS, if you don’t take this icon.jpg and treat it nice, you and me got problems.

Ya hear?

This is the last time I take a snapshot of that freaking elligence logo.

Just keep it. Please. Don’t delete it or tell me it’s not there. It was a little funny the first time, but not any more. You got what you wanted, you had your fun, now just keep this image and stop deleting it.

If you don’t, I swear to god, I will find you and hit you very hard with something heavy and pointy until you stop moving.


P.S.: It’s a shame that no one reads these.

Oh, I get it!

It’s an April Fools’ joke!

Still not funny, CVS.

    Dear Isaac,

    I’m trying to play nice with your binary files, but they are a little too much for me to handle. I always attempt to start fresh when you import them, honest. Sooner or later they end up pissing me off and they get the boot.

    You know I don’t like them, but you insist that I store them. I mean, what’s one or two corrupted/missing files in the grand scheme of things? You’re lucky I don’t corrupt ALL your files right now!

    Yours Truly,

    P.S. Just cause no one reads ‘em doesn’t mean they don’t hurt…sniff.

    P.P.S Yeah…April Fools…that’s it…
