When it comes to my development environment I have always been really picky. I need a clean and structured interface, not to cluttered, but still adjustable to my needs. I have tested countless IDE solutions in the past, but always seem to come back to Komodo from ActiveState.

What are you up to !

After thinking about setting up trac as a development workspace, I decided to build the required tools myself.

I just finished the SVN integration. I also rewrote the static content handler to work more like a classic wiki enviroment, including full revision support, text diff highlight for changes and automatic page creation.

I am glad I decided to build these tools myself, as it provides me with alot more freedom and extends the framework really nicely. These things are really becoming handy, as I have been using the static content feature alot lately, for myself and customers.

Cheers

“Sandboxie is active upstream from any infections which may occur in
computers equipped with a Windows OS. This software isolates navigation
files and applications functions which it redirects into a sandbox.

Downloaded files such as scripts and other programs are locked in replicas of the directories normally used. Furthermore, Sandboxie uses a copy of part of the Windows Registry in order to protect the original from malicious insertions.

Thus, the modifications carried out under the protections of
Sandboxie are not effective in authentic files. Parasites and bugs that
are locked in it do not affect the operating system. Any new files or
changes which are to be kept should be registered outside the sandbox after having checked their validity.”
