I bet you all thought that I was going to talk about shipping Community Sever Enterprise Reporting. I would, but then I would be lying and I don’t lie. This morning I shipped a fifty pound package back home. I am so happy that Adam and I decided that we would ship clothes and extra stuff that we have acquired down here, back home. My return flight should now be about fifty pounds lighter!
I worked on fixing a small bug today which has been plaguing us for some time.
Basically, some of the data that Community Sever stores in the database is not
in a consistent format. Like some fields in the database have
' instead of
' and vice-versa. This is a big pain because the browser renders these (what?)
different. When we generate queries on the fly, one has to have the text field
exactly how it was returned from the database. I tried using UTF8 encoding but
quickly found out that didn’t do very much. It helped in some cases. The
solution that I used was to replace the
' with a completely different
character only where it was needed. It was an easy fix… almost too easy!
