Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day

After hearing an interview on NPR I went in search of the book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. It’s bread making made simple. Definitely recommend this book.




Mercurial 1.1.2 released!

Mercurial 1.1.2
This is a minor release including one security fix and two minor bug fixes

  • improve path auditing (issue 1450)
  • fix date-related test failures in test suite
  • add graph controls to monoblue theme



  • Project Management

    I use Trac with multiple repository support for project management. Trac is great with with the Mercurial plugin, but I did feel limited in my version control options by Trac. I’ve no plans to change, given what I have works, but I recently ran across Redmine a Trac clone developed in Ruby. It seems to be Trac-like, plus multiple projects are more straight forward, and adds the ability to use Subversion, CVS, Mercurial, Bazaar, Darcs, or Git repositories. Greater version control support is a big plus. Mercurial and Trac does work well together. The Bazaar plugin is really no good, and I’ve no experience with Trac’s Git support.
