Hanging in there

The limited number of posts the last month is evidence that work have been taking too much of my time lately. Now I’m really looking forward to my vacation. I’m going to look closer on the code for art.gnome.org and see if I can reuse it for debianart.dk.

Heavy traffic on debianart.dk

The last two days traffic have increased heavily on Debianart. Downloads have doubled the last days. After investigating the log files I found that a Spanish Debian news site had a link to my site. Cool :-) I have now installed Webalizer to keep track on the traffic.

Substitute "Mac" newlines with unix ones

At work we have been struggling with bad newlines in php-pages created with dreamweaver on a Mac. The newlines screwed up grep results and was mainly just one big pain in the ***. This is a little note to my self about how to solve it.

This solution (parsed around by one of the guys at work, thanks Frank) should be carved in stone to be remember for eternity. The second best would be writing it on the Internet and I don’t have any stones not already written on at the moment:

tr '\r\n' '\n'  OUTPUTFILE

King Arthur

Yesterday I went to the movies with a friend of mine to see “King Arthur”. It had been a while since we last met. We went to the big movie theatre in Copenhage (Imperial) where we spend some time before the movie to catch up. I had a great time and the movie was good, not like Braveheart or Gladiator but okay entertainment no doubt.

Debian Sarge on IBM X40 howto - Part 7: Mouse track dot

I have experienced that my mouse isn’t working after a reboot a few times. I think it happens after a system update… and this morning I was hit again. When starting X the mouse pointer wouldn’t move.

After googleing around for a while I found out that the psmouse module wasn’t loaded. I compared an lsmod output I had found on the net with my own and discovered that the above module wasn’t loaded:

modprobe psmouse

Did the trick and even without reloading X.
