• The waiting is the hardest part..

    Today is the day that the “Managing Change Discussion Document” is published for the Flexible Learning Centre. It’s the plan of how the University intends to change our unit, and more importantly what is happening to the positions (and by extension, the people) who currently work in this unit.

    The next step is two weeks for feedback, followed by big meeting for everyone in the FLC to discuss the changes.

    I don’t like the suspense of waiting, and I think everyone in the building is a bit nervous at the moment :-(

  • Nhibernate 1.2.1 with ActiveRecord RC3?

    As has been pointed out elsewhere, ActiveRecord RC3 was compiled against NHibernate 1.2.

    I can confirm from personal experience that it isn’t a great idea to try and swap in NHibernate 1.2.1 and assume everything will continue to function.

    While it is true that you can using binding redirects to get most of the way there, dont’ forget that some tools like FxCop don’t respect these.

      <runtime\>
        <assemblyBinding xmlns\="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1"\>
          <dependentAssembly\>
            <assemblyIdentity name\="NHibernate" publicKeyToken\="aa95f207798dfdb4" culture\="neutral" />
            <bindingRedirect oldVersion\="1.2.0.4000" newVersion\="1.2.1.4000" />
          </dependentAssembly\>
        </assemblyBinding\>
      </runtime\>
    

  • Sorry

    I’m listening and watching the apology to the Stolen Generations from Australia’s Prime Minister Kevin Rudd on behalf of the Australian Parliament.

    I teach my children that when they’ve done the wrong thing, when they’ve hurt someone, that they should say sorry.

    I think it is right and proper that this standard should also apply at the highest levels.

    This is an incredibly significant day. I hope it goes some way to helping those affected directly and indirectly.
