Mhh, yes there are several problems with this code:
min: (Date year: 1900 day: 1);
max: Date today;

What is this? The link doesn't work.
My apologies. It wasn't meant to be a link but rather to an
word processing document. Which then would be
but you probably already know that when I put
it into proper context.

I also thought about the need of updating the documentation, however
I have to check with the University in what form this is possible. I
will do that when I am back from ESUG. Ping me in case I forget.
Super. That would be great. You put a lot of work into that. And I think
it forms an excellent basis of understanding and philosophy behind Pier
and its design.
I would love see the Seaside/Pier community grow and prosper. Good docs
can help tremendously. Poor docs can definitely hurt.
The sources are all in LaTeX. The documentation in the back is
automatically built from the class and method comments, but I don't
know if this is useful at all?
Someone here may know how to use LaTeX sources. If not then we can
attempt any number of things to extract the textual sources.
In fact I just did a "select all" in Acrobat and copied the contents to
doc and it isn't perfect but it is very usable. It would
require some reformatting and the images imported into the document. But
it is definitely workable.
What we would need are the images and licensing permissions from the
copyright holders. So if you are wanting to proceed on something like
this. You will need to release it under an appropriate license or your
choosing. And if the University has copyrights also, they would also.
You would then probably want to rename this document to something
appropriate and then clean up some of the "thesis" type text inside and
giving proper attribution to your original thesis as the foundation and
origination of this document. Possibly, even providing a url to your

It tells so on the front page, but it is in German because of a
strange requirement of the University.
Yes. That scared me at first. I just printed out the document and then
the Title page is in German. Uh oh. :)
But then I turned the page. I could read that. ;)
We USAmericans are a wimpy monolingual bunch. :)
But in your Acknowledgments you also state this:
Thanks for writing with me the two papers, [Duca05] and [Reng06b], which
were an important point of reference for this master thesis.
Which is what I missed.
There is also a paper that is more recent (but less practical):
I will present it at MODELS 2007 in Nashville. In case anybody feels
like chatting about Magritte, Pier, Seaside, Smalltalk or programming
in general don't hesitate to send a mail.
Thanks for the link. I'll definitely read it also.
Anyway, enjoy ESUG.
