It’s only partly in jest when I say that working in IT means being annoyed most of the time. Sometimes it feels that way. The latest annoyance came last week: updating my Cygwin install brought SVN 1.7. I knew about the required updating of working copies to the new format. What I didn’t know was that my beloved Emacs version control integration would break so horribly. I suppose this is another reason for Emacs-haters to chuckle, and I’m rarely inclined to tinker with the config or try alternative Emacs modes, so I’m basically stuck with the brokenness until a fix comes down stream. All in a day’s work.
