  • MOBIE 0.8.0.13 installed on YML.COM. New Forums Introduced.
    02/13/2005 10:30PM
    I have upgraded YML.COM to the latest greatest version of the Beast, MOBIE 0.8.0.13. This will doubtlessly introduce countless bugs.

    New end-user features include:

    • per-account preference settings including a global alias, an avatar graphic (for the forums), and you can now change your password. You can also adjust email notification settings for the forums.
    • a new forums package available from the Forums link on the left. See the first post in the forums for a description of features.
    This release of MOBIE makes quite a few changes to the backend including a completely new permissions and login system. If you have any problems using your account or you are getting permission denied errors please use the Contact Yermo form on the left.

    There are still a number of bugs in this release including a problem with CLOG RSS support. I'm tracking them down.



  • NASA: 2005 could be warmest year recorded
    02/13/2005 3:42PM

    According to an article at CNN.COM:


    "A weak El Nino and human-made greenhouse gases could make 2005 the warmest year since records started being kept in the late 1800s, NASA scientists said this week."


  • Compiling PHP 4.3.10 on Solaris 2.5.0
    02/11/2005 2:52PM
    There is a bug in Zend/zend_strtod.c in PHP 4.3.10 which shows up under Solaris 2.5.0. On that architecture there doesn't seem to be a definition for uint32_t or int32_t.

    To get php 4.3.10 to compile, edit Zend/zend_strtod.c and at line 131 change:

    #if defined(__sparc__) || defined(__ppc__)
    #define u_int32_t uint32_t
    #endif

    to:

    #if defined(__sparc__) || defined(__ppc__)
    #define u_int32_t unsigned int
    #define int32_t int
    #endif


  • Some Religious Conservatives "Get It"
    02/07/2005 11:20AM
    Apparently, environmental concern and thinking is no longer soley the domain of the political left and middle.

    Some religious conservatives are begining to conclude that global climate change and pollution are not just "secularist liberal" or "nutball environmentalist" issues.

    See the article here in the Washington Post. This is good news, considering that this particular constituency is adept at getting the political attention of the current administration.
