Clone SVN repository to GIT using TortoiseGIT on Windows

This was useful to my interests

SmexyyWeby

I enjoy using git because of its simplicity and speed. Recently, I have been working on a project of ours which uses SVN as a default version control system.

I proposed to my team to switch to Git as we can also use GitHub after that for making our code public. So, I decided to take the initiative to convert our SVN repository ready for GIT. There were 2 solutions to this:

  • I use the latest stable code and then check it into the latest GitHub repository.
  • I convert the whole SVN repository into Git repository.

I wanted to do the latter as I want to ensure that the commit logs are maintained across the clone.

So, after looking on the internet I found a few solutions using git-svn. The github site gives a good link on how to do it on a linux machine: https://help.github.com/articles/importing-from-subversion

How to change service account for reporting services

This saved me a bit of time. Now all i need to do is schedule a down time…

There is a specific way to change the SSRS service account if you strait forward change the service account then after restart of SSRS when you try to access reports you will receive below error.

A real NBN is slipping away

Excellent article written by Rod Tucker, one of the architects of the original NBN plan.

It saddens that this dream is slipping further and further away. No politician is willing to listen and it seems the more that people shout the less they are heard.

The one thing i wanted from NBN was to see the expansion of tele-health. This could have brought doctors to your house in a very different way than what they do now. Data throughput on a PON based network wouldn’t have been an issue but on the new propsoed NBN i really don’t think it will cope. Sadly I don’t think tele-health will be a reality now, maybe in the next 20 years but no sooner.
