I like this

MySQL is compiling extremely quickly on my own shiny new JohnCompanies FreeBSD partition. (Now Robert and I have one each ;-)

.root files not as mysterious as you might think

Darren Hobbs has a mini-rant about the closed nature of Radio.

This is exactly how I felt, a week or two into using it. Until I realised that it's not closed like that at all. The .root files look mysterious, until you realise that you can just right-click on the Radio icon in the system tray, select Open Radio and get at all the data from in there.

Pull down the Window menu (once you've opened the Radio desktop app as above) and select a .root file. Say, weblogData.root. Scroll up to the top, where you'll see a tree of data. Here's what you get if you close all the branches:

Expand the 'posts' branch to get to all your posts, and so on.

If you look at one of the scripts in Program Files\Radio UserLand\www\system\pages and want to find the function that gets called, go into Radio and hit Ctrl-J, then type the name of the function you want to go to. For example, radio.html.viewNewsItems will give you the page that generates the news aggregator display.
