8.10 slowness

You may have noticed that Ubuntu 8.10 includes a persistent LiveUSB creator on the LiveCD. This is very convenient, as the old method of doing it was complicated, and the LiveUSB creator doesn’t require partitioning either. However, 8.10 running of a USB drive is extremely slow.

Microsoft cracks, says everything is cooler than Winblows

My friend JonathanS pointed this out to me.

Photosynth, Microsoft’s new project which allows you to map out 3D space simply by putting together pictures.

When I went to the website (www.photosynth.net), I clicked one of the “synths”. I got this message:

Unfortunately, we’re not cool enough to run on your OS yet. We really wish we had a version of Photosynth that worked cross platform, but for now it only runs on Windows.

I was running Firefox 3.1a2pre (i built it from hg!) on Mac OS X Leopard.

I also spoofed as Firefox 3.0 on Linux and it says the exact same thing.

Winblows Live Search

I have been looking in my logs for my web server and I was  doing a WHOIS on some of the IPs. A particular block  of IPs, that belong to m$ load my website. Turns out Winblows Live  indexes my website. Google does not though.

Proof: I searched for ‘site:oks.verymad.net onekopakaspace’ on Live Search and Google. Here are the results pages:

Live Search

Google

UPDATE: The reason Google doesn’t crawl my site is because they don’t have FreeDNS DNS entries. Unfortunately, I only have FreeDNS subdomains.

So, add a comment if you want Google to retrieve FreeDNS DNS entries! (If you don’t, explain in a lengthy 2 paragraph comment that has no grammar or spelling errors)

Reading the Apple Public Source License

I was going through the Apple Public Source License as I was cleaning it and spacing it to fit more appropriately. Here are some snippets:

You acknowledge that the Covered Code is not intended for use in the operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation, communication systems, or air traffic control machines in which case the failure of the Covered Code could lead to death, personal injury, or severe physical or environmental damage.

Kind of strange.

Any litigation or other dispute resolution between You and Apple relating to this License shall take place in the Northern District of California.

Home field advantage!

Digging away the moments that make up a dull day

Due to some stupid error, now I can’t use /index.php/year/month/day/post-name URLs. WordPress just gives me it’s internal 404.

I am working on this bug and hope to have it fixed by the end of the day.

UPDATE: I had to go to 2.6-beta1 from my Time Machine Backup. Now we can use those kinds of URLs again.

I hope that this brings attention to WordPress developers, so they can fix this problem.

After much research, this bug also would affect us if we used /year/month/day/post-name.
