Getting started sorting out stuff for going to Animagic 2007 since we are leaving (very) early Thursday morning to get a flight to Köln (Cologne) ;)
Gotta also decide what to sell and empty some dvd-rws for the digicam!
will post some photos on here once the convention is over and we are back home :)
Haven't decided if i should (attempt to) cosplay - although it's too late anyway to get anything elaborate done.. but with all the stuff going on at the moment it's prolly better to wait for the convention next year anyway - hopefully there'll be more time then.
Finally managed to solve the problem I had with new blog entries/content not being shown on start page.
It was a permission problem apparently. Bit strange though cuz even when logged in as admin user it didn't show up correctly.
Anyay pressing the 'Rebuild permissions' button fixed everything. yay!
Few things happened lately, that i'll blog about (for now just a summary though).
The metallica concert I went to a while ago was great! I'll write more about it later when I get some 'free' time (lol)
We *still* don't have a fence (despite having panels now and having had several appointments..)
Looking forward to the Dir en Grey Concert 2nd August and Animagic 2007 next weekend - yay!
Finally got the ferrets microchipped (and the Cat last week), so we can get the pet passports. That just leaves Rabies injections (70 GBP per pet!!!)
also finally got around to move some more mails from my old server to my new one to get the 'disabling' of it done soon.
Updated dbmail to 2.2.6 rc1 which finally seems to fix the squirrelmail issues - yay!
I've been to busy and/or lazy to blog lately but i'll try to blog some more soon.
Still we haven't heard anything about our fence being repaired finally .. (it is in quite a bad condition now - which it wasn't when we first reported it months ago [apparently the weather wasn't good enough - well fine .. ])
The contractor was first here last saturday (12th) and said that he'd have to replace the fence completely (last week ...) - fair enough it was raining most of the week - but someone could have said something about what the plan is..
Here as promised some photos:
Marble cake - as i said didn't come out very well :(
MultiRenamer is a tool i wrote as i needed a reliable way to rename lots of files according to a pattern (regex 'only' at the moment ;)).
It is written in python and uses Jason Orendorff's path.py. Currently the only thing working is the ConsoleMultiRenamer. I'm planning on adding a gui as well as soon as I get time but the console version works quite well - apart from not really existent handling of errors in regex and/or replacement patterns.
Made some marble cake on saturday ;) It tastes nice (and is nearly gone already), but unfortunately got stuck in the cake shape so it came out broken - I'll add a picture tomorrow ;)
Also Made some sushi (maki rolls with Smoked Salmon and peppers). My rice turned out quite nice this time and I took it on the Waendel Walk with me today as lunch/snack. Ate most of it, but not all as the weather wasn't very good...
Added https mode as i didn't like the idea of my password being transmitted in clear text (both on my and my wife's page the default is now https - until i figure out a good way - prolly with mod_rewrite or something to make logon secure as the secure page module from drupal seems not to take the 'start page' into accout so i log on unsecured if i'm not careful ..)
