I don't expect full details of the wounded, they are entitled to their privacy.

But I'd like to have Bruce and Shiela Public hearing more of just how well our people are doing over there. The kids are doing things that their country and community can be proud of, fighting the good fight.

Yeah there were a lot of updates in those two releases (3.0.6 and 3.07), but the process of actually applying them is mostly automated. It's all the stuff either side which can be the painful part (regression tests, re-applying the crapload of local modifications that get over-written, fixing shit that the "upgrades" inevitably break)...

On a typical day I would spend a minimum of an hour either working on new features or watching for problems with existing ones. I also have a two separate and appropriately secured copies of the site which are kept up to date via automated secure remote replication, one of which is kept on standby for disaster recovery and the other for testing out new shit (DR and dev/acc environments in geek speak), both of which attract their own type of special needs..

My problem however is that I keep thinking of new stuff to do to improve the place, either at the front-end or the back-end. When I get these crazy notions I typically hunker down over a few a days and nights at a time and bash it all out, usually late at night or, or more often, at work (hooray for routing all my traffic through encrypted tunnels bounced of my home server so that all that work sees is a modest stream of nonsense data to random high ports to a dynamic address in the Australian IP space).

I remember in October when the changeover occurred, that there was a very frenzied 2-3 weeks which I spent pretty much glued to the laptop, bashing away on the big list of things I'd had stored up in my head. We went for a bit of a long weekend holiday down the coast during one of weekends… Looking back on the photos there's a bloody laptop in every second shot, with the site splashed all over it in various stages of development. Good times :stoked:

    'Australia Today', 1916 is Australia's leading military discussion forum. Originally formed back in 2004 as as a forum for, by, and about the Australian Special Forces, the forum has since widened it's scope to include all members and branches of the ADF as well as our honoured guests and allies from overseas. Despite some sections being open to the public, the forum still enjoys the membership and advice of respected members of the Special Forces and Special Operations Forces both local and international, as well as those from elite specialities in the conventional forces. From recruit training right up to SF selection tips - if it's frank and honest advice you're after, you'll find it here.
