Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

I’m customizing an install of the Mantis bugtracker for my contract job. We want to modify it to authenticate against our own user database. Fortunately, the Mantis code is pretty well modularized and abstracted, so it shouldn’t be too hard. I’m also going to try to integrate a way to submit new issues by email. My employer has already suggested that when I get that working, I could submit the modifications back to the Mantis project. It’s nice to have a boss who “gets” Open Source.

Meanwhile, Jamie and Mary are in the family room watching Esther Williams in Skirts Ahoy!. Susan is slicing up some banana bread in the kitchen. I’m having a brunch of freshly cut pineapple and cantelope (and a small dollop of whipped cream), along with a cup of hot coffee. Later today, we’ll take the kids to the mall.

Life is good.
