If you need to compare every file between two revisions/tags in cvs use:

cvs -q rdiff -s -r b5130_0202 -r b5130_0203 project1 [project2] [project_n]

I was doing it by check out both branches and using Araxis Merge do diff the directories. I really the tool, but nothing like keeping it server side and getting CVS to do the work for you. :)

So here is a weird one. In the house we have a Panasonic KX-TG5623 5.8 GHz cordless phone and a Uniden PowerMax 5.8 GHz cordless phone.

I don’t run on wifi too much but my wife does. She started to notice that the wifi signal would drop off from time to time… Then she noticed that every time the phone would ring the signal would drop. It would come back up right away; you could take the call and be on wifi, but that initial ring would cause the drop off.

To fix the issue, I launched the Airport Utility, click on Airport icon in the top, and then the Wireless tab. I changed the channel to 5 and it seems to be good for both phones.

Updated: Someone else near by is using channel 5 so I was seeing the problem described on this article, Mysterious Airport dropouts solved?.

I downloaded Eclipse Version: Build id: M20071023-1652 and built the client’s project. Everything was fine… It was fast, stable, and there were no configuration differences between the three supportive platforms. One day I hit the shortcut key for Open Resource (Apple/Command + Shift + R ), typed in a file name, hit enter and boom… first crash. Now, every time I want to use that feature Eclipse crashes on my session. The dialog box opens, I can type a file name and hit enter but before the file opens it crashes.

Looking at the crash log in ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/ and they are all very similar to this:

Process: eclipse [6516]
Path: /Applications/eclipse/
Identifier: org.eclipse.eclipse
Version: 3.3 (3.3)
Code Type: X86 (Native)
Parent Process: launchd [156]

Date/Time: 2008-02-15 14:27:50.676 -0800
OS Version: Mac OS X 10.5.2 (9C31)
Report Version: 6

Exception Codes: KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE at 0x00000000000002ac
Crashed Thread: 0

Wondering if anyone else has seen this or knows of a fix.

The Eclipse IDE was working perfect for me on Mac OS X… Actually I always used it on Linux only because the Mac OS X version always a little weaker (from a stability perspective) and my PowerBooks were a little slower than my PCs. Now I have a 17″ 2.33GHz MacBook Pro with 2gb of ram.. and I figured I would give it shot as Eclipse has come a long way…
