I have moved a few services to the SSL-secured area on the webserver of develz.org. Most notably the WordPress Admin area, the Site Stats and also the new WebMail interface.
Of course I am not going to pay for an officially accepted SSL certificate. You can either accept the site certificate automatically offered to you by your webbrower or install the self-signed CA certificate which is available here.
Note about the Site Stats: Everybody who can write articles can view the stats. Just log in with the user-name and password you use for the Blog.
Alright, alright.. I finally installed a webmail interface :)
In a short time I only had a look at three options: Horde, SquirrelMail and RoundCube
A whole framework with online-office functionality would be a bit much for simple emailing – so I decided against Horde.
And keeping up with all the exploits and problems about SquirrelMail is just too exhausting.
RoundCube it is! Nice, smooth and simple user-interface. KISS – address-book and spell-checking being the only gimmicks :D
I added a link in the Meta section on the bottom right shown after logging in to the Blog. Everyone already having a mailbox enabled can immediately log in. Anyone interested pass me a note – it just takes a few seconds to enable your access.
As a first post, I wish to initiate some kind of melting pot for our
dotfiles configuration files.
I mean that we can share together the configuration of our common applications, and find the magic tip we never know, or simply discover new tools through the neighbor files.
I begin for now with the three well known Zsh, Vim and Mutt. You can browse my
dotfiles configuration files here.
More configurations will income soon. But I need to extract it, make it presentable and remove personal informations from it.
Feel free to comment!
Today I’d like to tell you a little bit about people who gave the German word “beratungsresistent” a meaning.
Most of you have heard about those but the rest of you have already seen such specimen or even had the pleasure of dealing with a representative of that group.

Did you know we are not allowed to shit in the corner on Aliens’ Wrath?…
this is my first post on develz.org.
I have to say, this is nothing I do easily. I love my silence and keeping a low profile is helping a lot :)
But I have to admit today is somewhat special:
I nearly lost my temper when I copied a CD yesterday just to find out today that I merely tried to copy it…
The image is garbage. It is broken. FOOBAR. Just a bunch of useless binary data. At least this is what file tells me:
calimero:~# file /media/Buffalo_1TB/ISO/be2009.iso
But if it were just that… The burned image is… garbage.
And I don’t have a clue why, because there is no copy protection scheme used or something strange in the error log… Just a bunch of useless data.
So I have to get the stuff again. Marvelous.
Just reading from the error log from the attempt to write the CD, I found out that I missed to move the .toc file to the right location so it could accompany the image as well…What a mess. And I found out while writing this post.
I don’t have to add that it’s not working, do I?
The last 2 days have been quite busy for me and someone already noted about my absence. Sorry, Fleur :-*
Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup will be releasing a minor upgrade from 0.5.1 to 0.5.2 soon. Keskitalo and me haxed together a git branch to make zips with Windows binaries of future releases cross-compiled on Debian more easy to do. Run update.sh, wait a bit, hit enter a few times… Tadaaa :) Shell scripting coupled with git haxz0ring is just awesome!
Additionally Tremulous will release a beta of 1.2 soon – after a felt decade since last release :D Seems like it will feature developer team moderated servers and this server will help providing a European point of presence. Lakitu7 and me have setup a vserver without CPU virtualization and a preliminary beta tremded.x86 is running… Let’s hope it works as expected!
Good luck to all participants for successful releases!
Dilbert is so right sometimes!
Except the part about blaming, of course :D
