Converting a Subversion SVN Repository to Git

I’ve used DreamHost’s SVN host­ing with past projects I’ve done. It wasn’t till recently that I had time to migrate them over to Git. Search­ing the net, I found JohnAlbin’s steps on how to do so effi­ciently (writ­ten in August 2010).1

Here’s a slightly-updated-shorter ver­sion of that (con­tain­ing steps of my migra­tion to Bit­bucket):2

“ill-ocano” — An Adobe Illustrator Warmup

I’ve been doing some exper­i­men­ta­tion with Adobe Edge this past week since it’s pre­view release on Mon­day. I fig­ure to have a break, and do some exer­cises with Adobe Illus­tra­tor. Hence, the above: “ill-ocano”.

The Ilo­cano or Ilokano peo­ple are the third largest Fil­ipino eth­no­lin­guis­tic group. Aside from being referred to as Ilo­canos, from “i”-from, and “looc”-bay, they also refer to them­selves as Sam­toy, from the Ilo­cano phrase “sao mi ditoy”, mean­ing ‘our lan­guage here.’ The word “Ilo­cano” came from the word “Iloco” or “Yloco.“1

Yes, it looks like the spelling is off, but the expla­na­tion of why it is so and the exer­cise is right after the jump.

It seems that I haven’t (in the time of writ­ing) added a geolo­ca­tion to one of my favorite pho­tographs, as well as Life-moments.

Breathless Balcony

Truly a “Breath­less Bal­cony.” Taken on the third day of a recent Inka Trail trek at Intipata in Peru.

Mean­while, back to the sub­ject. If we’re talk­ing about Flickr, Yahoo! comes to mind. The only thing that sucks about map­ping on Flickr is the lim­ited cov­er­age and sub­par details of Yahoo! Maps (in this case). You get results like these:
