Code Commit Comment of the day.

From: Mike Harrison 
------------------------------------------------------

I was inspired by our recent threadsjacking discussions. After over 2 
weeks in W. Africa, putting Linux servers in to run a utility here (still 
getting evil stares from the AS400 Var). I posted all my changes from the 
field today (about 1300 lines?) with the following comment:
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Let us kneel and pray. Dear Cowboy Field Programming Gods, Please accept 
this humble offeriing. it was created from hardship. True extreme 
programming conditions, no water, little food, bad air conditioning and 
very little real coffee. Created on hard chairs, laptops and hotel 
furniture with little access to Google or online reference materials.

Tested in the field, under bursty wireless long distance networks, long 
lines of customers, and a crazy asshole west african/frenchman named 
Pierre.

This code has all been encoded and deployed live, may the karma of Larry 
Wall and Linus Torvalds forgive us and protect us from the sins we (I) 
have commited.

Too many changes at once to document well, or at all. May the code speak 
to you, as it did to me, under the influence of Benin voodoo magii.

=============================================================== From: Sean Brewer ------------------------------------------------------ Why aren't you using a DVCS? If you *have* to use subversion, git will deal with subversion repos, but it's a little bit of a pain. Not sure about mercurial or darcs.
