hrrm… neato, upgraded to WordPress 2.1 and nothing seems to have exploded too spectacularly (in fact, everything works). yay!
I’ve also taken a photo I took ages ago and used it as a header image thingy. doesn’t look to bad on the front page… not 100% happy with the wordpress theme integration atm.
Here I am, sticking it. err… I think that came out wrong.
Obviously pornography here. Not art at all. Sick bastard that Michelangelo.
I’ve been meaning to try bzr again for ages, and here’s the excuse. I’m going to see if this is going to work well for me.
The only thing I’m really noticing at the moment is that the import speed seems to be fairly slow. If I were doing this on a mysql tree, I’d probably just go to bed. or wait until next week.
Thanks to James for his handy little HOWTO on doing this.
ahh… new WordPress version. Seems to be going okay at the moment – we’ll see if anything hits the fan.
PortaWiki is going pretty well. We’ve got a couple of contribututors at the moment and getting good little bits on the various oddities of various platforms. I encourage you to check it out and add things that you know.
It’d be great to have a MySQL section there too. In versions previous to 5.0 for example, you may get different results from some math operations on different platforms as we used the floating point stuff. In 5.0 we have precision math so this isn’t a problem – but it probably caused somebody to raise an eyebrow in the past. Volunteers?
be a speaker at OSDC. Use their web system. I’m a smart guy and getting confused. Honestly guys, send in the slides for a presentation should not be a difficult task.
Contrast this with the recent AUUG conf where i attached files to an email and then clicked on the big Send button.
If via a web form it should be the *exact* equivilent. Not four different fields to specify the darn title of the thing.
At AUUG2005 last week, Arjen, myself and others were discussing the idea of trying to assemble some sort of common resources that multiple projects can use to contribute and find out about portability issues they stumble across.
The idea being that we can all then learn from each other and write better, more portable software.
So, I’ve set something up.
I present, the incredibly bare (okay, not quite completely bare) PortaWiki.
Please add whatever stuff you find, you know or anything. No idea how this is going to work – I plan to let it evolve.
(Arjen tells me that Peter Gutmann should receive credit as he thinks he came up with the idea. Kudos to him).
hrrm… 304 not modified. I wonder if posting an entry will fix it.
Mikal laments about the evils of blog spam – stillhq.com – Blog spam continued.
Let me let all of you non-wordpress using people (who have comments enabled) know that you have been living in sin!
How freakin awesome is that?
to 1.2.2 – hopefully nothing explodes.
Big comment spam problem – although not as bad as in the MT days (at least I can moderate).
Interesting to see what 1.3 has it store… but possibly not mucking around with it yet :)
This is why software patents are bad.
It’s proving to be sorta-true. A couple more patches into memberdb and it should all be right.
Oh, not to mention patches to the LA website :)
We’re going to have to undo some of those silly styling things (such as styling all h1 tags to be in the same position on the screen).
That’s why I’m linking to Sketches on the hope that if we do it in enough places, we’ll be able to convince certain search engines that it’s the most important type of drawing or drafting something out there.
comments are back! well, until the spam is unmanagable, and then i’ll have to go and moderate everything. At least it’s better than MT though, where it just accepts everything and you have to go hunting for bad things.
I like WordPress!
Stick the internel server error in your pipe and smoke it! hahahaha – die spammers, die.
I really want all spammers to die a really slow, painful and final death. I hate them. I really hate them. Especially blog spammers – you should become new armour for battle tanks.
New junkcode addition – jpeg_recover.c
Borne out of weirdness going wrong with a friend’s compact flash card while we were on holiday – suddenly a bunch of photos went missing. It didn’t seem to be easy to recover them using conventional manipulations of the FAT filesystem, so instead (without an internet connection, but with lots of beer) hacked up a program that searches through a file (given as the command line parameter) extracts things that look like jpeg files and dumps them in the current directory. It can produce a number of false-positives, which is probably due to the fact that I didn’t have access to any jpeg specs, so this is all from looking at some jpeg files and working out something simple, quickly. But hey, we got a fair few of the photos back.

top browser accessing flamingspork.com atm – w00t! MSIE6 had edged it out of the top position for a little while – but all these people checking out LCA2004 photos seem to like using a decent browser.
