Dropbox fixup tool!
Dropbox burned us! It renamed several dozen current TLIB libraries with
"conflicted copy" in the name (so, for example, TLIB library abc.pl____$ became
"abc (OWNER-PC's conflicted copy 2016-08-02).pl____$"), and replaced them with
old versions: shorter, and with older file dates, with no warning whatsoever.
To fix the mess, you need to compare the current version of each file with the
"conflicted copy" version, and verify that the longer version is the same as
the shorter version, except with additional data appended, and then make the
longer version the current version. So we wrote a little program to do it.
If you need it, see the Downloads page.
23-Dec-2005: Email glitch! Due to a mailserver problem,
we apparently lost all emails sent to us between 3:37 PM and 9:17 PM on December 23, 2005.
If you sent us an email during that time period, please resend it!
We apologize for the inconvenience.
Also, as always, please include the words "TLIB version control" in the subject line,
to ensure that your message gets past our anti-spam filters.
16-Jun-2004: Now available:
download the 30-day time-limited trial version
of TLIB Version Control.
19-May-2004: TLIB Version Control 5.54k released!
See release.html for details.
17-Nov-2003: Because we
were getting buried in a daily avalanche of spam, we have installed
anti-spam filtering on our mail server. You can bypass the filter,
and ensure that your email to us gets through to us, by mentioning
"TLIB Version Control" anywhere in the subject line.
19-Sep-2003: We're pleased
to report that Burton Systems Software weathered hurricane
without significant damage.
7-Aug-2003: A somewhat improved
preliminary PDF version of the TLIB Reference Manual is now available
on this web site.
22-Feb-2003: Our web site
and email was mostly unavailable at the burtonsys.com
domain for a day or so, due to a denial-of-service attack on our DNS
service provider. Our alternate domain,
continued to function. We've added another secondary DNS for
the burtonsys.com domain, to try to prevent a recurrance of this
problem. We apologize for any inconvenience to our customers.
If you sent an email which bounced or got no reply, please
resend it to this address.
last updated 3-Oct-2002: This has nothing to do
with TLIB, but as a service to our friends and customers Dave Burton has
compiled some "virus avoidance advice" to help
you avoid getting burned by Bugbear, Klez, Magistr, Nimba, Badtrans, Sircam, Goner, etc..
