Site errors - possibly nailed

It seems that there is a caching module that causes issues when coupled with the database, anonymous users and certain pages. That may be the reason there have been problems logging in, logging out and posting. I have disabled the site cache (and we’ll see if it works).

New stuff for home system

Another post where I have no idea who wrote it. Today I went and bought a new monitor (LG L245W 24", 1920x1200, picture-in-picture capable) and a 500 GB external USB drive. The monitor is great - it worked after a dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg on my Debian Sid system. The hard disk came pre-formatted for NTFS. I’m contemplating the number and sizes of partitions, once I’ve decided that then it will be reformatted to use ext3.

It was Sunday night...

Like it says, it was Sunday night when I started doing maintenance for all the websites I make the attempt to look after. I have to find out why the webalizer software insists on messing with one of my sites. I may just have to turn it off, as it isn’t really useful for these sites. Looks like a busy week coming up, interview call tomorrow (yeah, I know it’s Thanksgiving), and I have a bunch of stuff to do for my current employer before the end of the month.

Post September Meeting Followup

Looks like I didn’t post a September Meeting page, although it was listed in the events. Too bad for those who didn’t show up for the meeting. We did a hardware hacking project, specifically reflashing a Linksys WRT54GL to use a firmware from the OpenWRT project (well, this was really a software portion), but it was hardware we repurposed and proved that it worked after the fact. We also had a working web interface to the unit and the ability to adjust all manner of items that the folks at linksys don’t want us playing with.
