I looked at Engintron more closely today. What it says it does looks useful, but looking at the script itself raises a few concerns. There’s a lot of “wget –no-check-certificate” happening in it, which is often a warning sign, but then I noticed that in the function used to install the “ui”, it basically disables… Continue reading Another Post
Day 4, I think? There was a brief downtime earlier today while my server was being upgraded. Now it has 64-bit CentOS 7, which means cPanel can finally resume updating! It looks like version 58 really did fix PECL for php 7. I wasn’t fully sure if they really would, since they’ve misestimated arrival times… Continue reading Updates
This is, if I’m still counting correctly, the third day in a row I have posted. I spent most of the day playing Shadow of Mordor. My cat used to sit on my lap when I played it when she was a kitten, and today she sat in my lap part of the day when… Continue reading Hi again
I don’t remember how exactly I found the page, but I am really liking UFYH so far. It’s on tumblr. For those of you who don’t like certain types of words, let’s pretend for now that it stands for “Un-Fail Your Habitat”. That, hopefully, preserves the internetly-informality of the original. It’s purpose is to help… Continue reading UFYH and Habitica
It has been quite some time since I posted. Over a year and a half it looks like. I’m currently planning to try getting into an actual habit of writing. So, my new “rule” is, at least one post per day. Every day. Doesn’t have to be much, doesn’t have to be profound, just something.… Continue reading Trying Again
There’s a new WordPress theme I want to try. I started reading some of the new features, and it looks like I should like TwentyFifteen. I have a few customizations I’ve made in a child theme for TwentyFourteen that I’ll want to convert before I make the switch. Once I get started on it, it’ll… Continue reading To-Dos and Similar
So I don’t think I have enough traffic yet that anyone is likely to have noticed, but, I had some downtime last night. Completely self-inflicted, of course. I’m not sure exactly what specific things were going wrong, but that’s exactly what the problem is. I was less careful than I should have been. Here’s the… Continue reading Oops!
It seems a Minion of mine has finally gotten around to preparing the presentation of a recent project of hers. As can be easily seen, she decided to celebrate the festival with an exercise in mimicry, choosing me as the subject. I am told that it is a tradition in parts of Midgard to do… Continue reading Halloween Pictures (Finally)!
A perennial trickiness seems to be how to actually accomplish those things which have been chosen. There seems to be an entire industry built up around telling everyone else how to do the things they already want to do anyway. Naturally, I’m a bit skeptical of any how-to whose website is nothing but an advertisement… Continue reading Time and Stuff to Do in it
In the constant fight against spam, one of the many useful tools is Sender Verification. You may have seen references to this when poking around in the exim configuration manager. But what is it? What is it for? What problems can it “cause”? One of the occasional tell-tale signs of spam, is that it is… Continue reading Sender Verification and its Callouts
