08: Broken blog, now with less breakage

2008-08-08 06:00

Tags: admin software Location: lunar

Somehow when updating to wordpress 2.6 I managed to mess up my themes directory, making the blog inaccessible. As I haven't been posting a lot lately I only just noticed this morning.

At any rate, the mess-up is fixed and committed to SVN and I learned that it's best not to do a wordpress update really early in the morning at work.

06:14: EeePC, Alien Syndrome, screen

Tags: gaming macos software hardware linux Location: lunar

I ordered an Asus Eee PC 901 [Ed: broken link], and will be getting to play with it later today. (I may post pictures, I may not, it depends how I feel this afternoon when I finally get the box in my hands.)

Let's see. Oh yes, Alien Syndrome is growing on me. I've been playing it a few hours each evening and have managed to get a few of the character types leveled up a little. It's kind of monotonous by one's self, so I'm hoping my sister does actually enjoy playing it when she visits.

I'll probably play it a bit more this weekend if I don't end up spending the entirety of it fiddling around with the EeePC. _

I've been using the GNU screen command to run BitTornado on my home machine. It works pretty well, I can shell in, reattach the session to check my progress, then detach and sign back out. Actually pretty slick.

The new building we moved into is an old turn-of-the-century job. Seven stories and a wicked cool basement.

Here are some (sadly cell phone) photos of the basement I took yesterday morning.
