Production implementation from hell. Moved code across to production last night and then discovered it didn’t compile because the production machine was 64 bit and the development machines are 32 bit. It would seem that libtiff doesn’t compile on a 64 bit machine — this is something I will have to put some work into. I ended up compiling the code statically on one of the 32 bit machines and then ftp’ing it across to the 64 bit machine. This meant that the binary worked in 32 bit compatibility mode, which seemed to work fine.

For reference, add the following to xlc to compile statically…

-bnoso -bI:/lib/syscalls.exp

Too much fun.

Helped a mate build a shack in his backyard — I’ll put photos here when I can.
