Upgrades never end.

Posted 01-30-2011 at 01:52 AM by peonuser

You have to keep up with the Jones with software. This is especially true with server upgrades. Upgraded Wordpress and that was pretty much a snap. Ledgersmb does not work any more because of php issues, but then I never really used it. Probably have to replace with Sql-ledger. One of the reasons for getting phppgadmin working. Moodle needs to be upgraded. Have a lot of classes installed in it. Have to backup the data. Want to start using Drupal, may just tank the existing 6.x install and go for...

GNOME Shell: Still not as mature as what the mockups tell about it

Posted 01-29-2011 at 08:56 PM by Kenny_Strawn (Kenny the one-teen comittee to stamp out Proprietary $uckware)

I hate it when people say that many of the changes proposed for GNOME Shell are already implemented when really the only mature mockup is the Overview relayout.

What about this mockup? How come the concept of a built-in Shell screen lock isn't reality?

How about this one? When will the shell actually replace GDM (or at least have a login interface that runs on top of it)?

And what about this? When is GNOME Shell ever going to have a built-in on-screen...

Does Ubuntu have any quality control?

Finally made phppgadmin work with the help of LQ and a lot of other sites. Wanted to use phpmyadmin for remote management of psql databases. What a challenge. I think I changed every spec in as many files. Went through every log known to man (or at least most admins). had to make the port specs agree. Made sure the port was open with nmap. The real kicker was I had to go into a couple of php files and update the code because some of the code was deprecated. I made sure and use pdfit (a firefox plug...

More fun around MIPS

Posted 01-29-2011 at 09:54 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

I thought I finally have to try this myself at last, so I logged in to my Netgear router and started experiments around MIPS assembly.

It isn't much, though, I think I love this architecture It's really easy comparing to x86.

I guess I started at the wrong place. My first step was googling for "MIPS linux syscall", I was trying to find some easy sample code in order to understand how it works and create "hello world" myself. But MIPS is so easy,...

Why must I put up with this sh*t?

Yes, this is filed under "Existential Rants", but it's more of a general rant.

UFOs, aliens, "disclosure", gubmint conspiracies, etc...I can't stand it anymore!

My mother is utterly convinced that she's an "integral part" of some "spiritual mission" to "help the planet ascend" sh*t. On an almost daily basis I have to put up with her talking to friends over the phone about it all. It drives me...
