Gotta put up some reviews later for the latest Metal Hammer and Classic FM Magazine CDs (both magazines had 2 discs included which are mostly great - only 2 or 3 tracks a disc i don't listen to at all ;)
This weekend will be Waendel Walk Weekend. We'll be going Sunday, so I can't go training, but I don't have money at the moment anyway so I guess it's ok.
Played too much the Japanese Naruto (3) fighting game on our new(from ebay ;)) japanese Gamecube. Got the power lead and extra controllers this monday.
Guessing what menus are is fun - for a while at least lol
Game was from Play Asia which sells asian games and ships them - well everywhere really ;)
unfortunately we got charged 27 pounds for the import at the doorstep (i think they charged too much but still need to find out ..)
At the weekend we went to look at some Chinchillas at a Chinchilla Rescue place in Rushden. They had loads of Chins there (my guess is 50+). We decided to get one of them as our Chin Travis seems to be lonely after the - sudden - death of Gizmo (R.I.P). We'll pick him up later today - still gotta decide on a name though as the current name from previous owner is a bit strange and we'll have to change it as I keep forgetting.
The Chin. Rescue place also had 3 dogs (2 of them like the size of ponys!!!)
UK Taikai is over - got home sunday night (just before midnight ;)).
Was a great experience and I'm sure I'll go again if there is a chance. Unfortunately I could not go to the banquet, as it was too late and getting home even later was not practical for me or the guys I took with me in my car.
Coming back i noticed that my FastHosts server had bee rebooted for some reason so I went to sort it out. (webpage was down as i forgot to enable automatic start up of apache .. this sux ..).
Busy day again..
After having to go to a clients site yesterday it was quite busy again.
In my lunch break I went to the library (had some books due back tomorrow which i couldn't renew anymore ;'( ) and fixed some drupal modules for postgresql. list below:
birthdays module had no pgsql code at all so big patch for this to make everything work: http://drupal.org/node/137907
Releasemonitor pgsql SQL install (create table) code had a bug. fixed that too: http://drupal.org/node/137885
The features are from around 5 years ago and i'm sure there are new ones, and also existing features have to be validated.
A (simple) firewall administration tool which generates shell scripts as output to be used on servers (or desktop machines too of course).
This was a project which I worked on together with a Friend of mine in school and unfortunately hasn't been updated since then, though I think most things will still work, but new stuff will be missing.
Really looking forward to the Genbukan UK Taikai 2007.
It'll be in Southampton and the Grand master will attend too! ;)
Been busy the last few days to install drupal on my server for both my website as well as my wife's. Hers has definitely more content so far as I spent my time setting up everything so it works and so she can easily use it without my help as well :)
Rats i forgot to check GWN again to see if I got to translate a dev of the week section and of course there is one now .. fortunately rather short :)
