Recycling CFLs

I heard about this a while ago but forgot about Home Depot's initiative to recycle compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs). This is really important as CFLs contain small amounts of mercury which is extremely poisonous. It is actually "illegal" to throw these bulbs in the regular trash. During my recent visit to the Batavia Home Depot I saw one of these CFL recycling boxes. They are located right in front of the returns counter as you enter the store. This is very responsible of Home Depot and we should really take advantage of their efforts! Here is more information from the Home Depot site.

And here is more information about CFLs and why recycling them is important:

10 minutes of my life wasted with cvs

Today I wanted to see what files I committed to cvs in the last week. Thinking this would be an easy/common task I hit the internet/man pages. I found that I needed the -d flag and some date formatting like

<d, d>,
Select all revisions dated d or earlier.
d<, >d,

Select all revisions dated d or later.

Not really understanding what either of those meant I started with trial/error to guess whether it was MM/DD/YYYY or MM-DD-YYYY or YYYY-MM-DD, etc. None of which worked so I hit up the internet. I still couldn't find any examples so I employed 2 other co-workers on the task. After about 10 minutes of the 3 of us trying different things out we came up with:

cvs log -d "2008/10/20<2008/10/28" -S Note: you need the quotes, and the -S. Apparently, the -S suppresses the output so it only prints out the date ranges I want. If anyone wants to explain how I get "2008/10/20<2008/10/28" from either or d<, >d please feel free!

Batavia editors!

I took Finster for another walk down Batavia Main St. and I noticed that the "comming" sign was missing :) The fail has ended!
