4/3     In "p4 client", modtime/nomodtime sets the file timestamp to
        either the modification time from submitting client or the time that
        the file is fetched.  Is there a way to set the file timestamp to
        the time that the file was submitted, like what ClearCase does?  Thx.
        \_ How is this different from the modtime option? Are you concerned
           about clock skew or timezone differences?
           \_ Say someone has a local file with a last-modification date of
              1/1/2001 in the local file system.  He submits it on 4/2/2008 and
              I sync to it on 4/3/2008.  Now, "nomodtime" will make the last-
              modification of my copy of the file 4/3/2008, while "modtime"
              will make it 1/1/2001.  I want 4/2/2008.  -- OP

10/15   What's the soda email client these days?
        \_ Don't know.  /usr/bin/mail hasn't been working for a while.

8/29    There was once a CSUA web page which runs an SSH client for logging
        on to soda.  Does that page still exist?  Can someone remind me of the
        URL please?  Thx.
        \_ what do you mean? instruction on how to ssh into soda?
           \_ No I think he means the ssh applet, which, iirc, was an applet
              that implemented an ssh v1 client.  I think this page went away

4/6     My company is evaluating version control systems. Our two candidates
        are Perforce and Subversion. Anyone worked with both and have good
        arguments one way or the other? (These are the only two options we
        have.) We're most interested in client performance, ease of use, and
        reasonable branching.

8/1     Where is the mac desktop going to go? It seems all the development
        in sw/hw now is for the iphone, imac.  2 finger Gestures won't work
        on the desktop.  What happened to the xserve line?
        \_ Two finger gestures DO work on the desktop.  Have you used a new
           Apple laptop lately...they support up to 5 finger gestures.
           \_ you're making my point even harder, do the 5 finger gestures

4/25    I have an Airport Express.  is there some way to let computer
        1 ping computer 2?  both computers are connected to wireless network
        successfully.  I can get to internet on both of them.  I just can't
        ping each other.  weird.  maybe they think that's a feature?
        \_ Sounds like your router is enforcing client isolation. If you can't
           change the setting on the router you're probably SOL.

8/10    Perforce question.  When submitting files, is there a way to tell
        Perforce to verify that the files are actually different before
        allowing them to be submitted?  ClearCase does this automatically.
        \_ I right-click my pending changelist and select "Revert if unchanged"
           Everything that remains has diffs.  This also makes it easy to

2/9     I'm starting a personal programming project and I need some revision
        control system.  What would you suggest given that the client and
        server must run on Windows?
        \_ Subversion
           \_ Seconded. Subversion is probably the best revision control
              system I've used. It is as easy to use and maintain as cvs

        (right click) to add a custom action?  I have templates of spreadsheets
        I want to copy quickly to certain folders.  I envision using the
        context menu in this manner: Right-click -> Create Template Here ->
        [template1], [template2], [templateN].  It should have one of those
        right arrows that will expand into another menu from which I can choose

8/8     How do you make clear case behave simpler, like say CVS. My office
        is using it and it has way too many features and complications, but
        are not going to be switching to CVS anytime soon. We develop using
        Clearcase\ibm eclipse\MQ. -nesim
        \_ Uhm, shouldn't you be asking clearcase this question? You figure
           that the amount you're paying them per seat license you'd get

2/10    Is clearcase much superior over CVS? I've never used clearcase
        before, only cvs and sourcesafe. I need it for binary files
        only. Does the commercial product offer compelling value?

11/5    SourceSafe sucks.  Does M$ use it interally themselves?
        \_ Yes and no.  MS bought SS and doesn't try to make it better.
           Same with Rational and ClearCase.  Don't use either.
        \_ What is SourceSafe for?
           \_ Storing and eventually corrupting and losing all your source
              code for a company make/break project.

6/11    Does anyone have experience with bitkeeper? There is a guy
        at work who thinks that it is the best version control system
        ever and wants us to use it, but I'm just not convinced that
        its orders of magnitude better than cvs and clearcase.

5/15    In ClearCase 4.2, I want to create a new element bar.c based on the
        latest version of foo.c.  Is there any ClearCase command for this
        other than "mkelem" such that it'll remember that version 1 of bar.c
        comes from the latest foo.c?  Thanks. -- yuen
        \_ There used to be a "clone" feature in the UI. I don't know what

10/7    Anyone here using perforce? How does it compare to cvs?
        \_ It isn't free.  It requires a "bigger" machine to host it.
           It does "more stuff".  It runs on windows and unix.
           \_ I would dispute "bigger". The main advantages of Perforce
             over CVS are 1) real branching and integration 2) speed (try CVS
             with lots of files over different connections) 3) atomic commits

8/15    Is there a cvs equivalent to the clearcase predecessor diff?
        I can do a cvs status, subtract 1 from the minor version and
        then do a cvs diff -r<version> but I'm looking for something
        \_ How exactly is that not built in?

8/13    In Clearcase, how do I find all the views created by a particular user?
        \_ ct lsview | grep hozer   only works on a particular server.
           Repeat as necessary.
           \_ But that works only if either the view name or the view server
              access path contains the login name of the user as a substring.
