Throw One Away
Friday, September 19, 2003
It's been embarrasing to find out that certain files where missing from the site. My timestamp-based publication strategy was responsible for this (doesn't work so well when a file with an "old" timestamp is copied into a directory: which has me musing about the concept of file identity). More consequential is the fact that the Publisher application (an FTP client offered at the downloads page) was indeed not in the FileTools zip archive. The reason I learned of these things is nothing less than a crash of my hard drive. So I just rewrote the Publisher application (plan to throw one away, right?).
