|Tweleve Years Without a Delete|| |
| It is rather unbelievable, but in the twelve years that I have been editing Kamat's Potpourri, we never had to delete a file from the server!|
I think this because the use of our home-made CMS allowed for flexible, and easy updates and my strong belief to keep our published contents durable, book-markable, and available all the time.
The other day a researcher pointed out that had mis-classified a mural from Sri Lanka as belonging to Ajanta. So I had to delete it from the Ajanta folder.
That's when I realized I had no delete on my CMS!
Of course, being a programmer, I quickly wrote it, but I thought that it is rather remarkable that I had not even required the delete functionality till now.
I was also pleasantly surprised how easily my my old VB6 compiled on Vista Business machine. It just worked.
