2.9 miles under the water

it appears, some captain Nemo can change a ticket milestone in the .org trac (yeah, no Sandbox for you) without leaving any tracks.

congrats on 2.6 release! wander how many more tickets have had their milestone mass shifted this nemo way?

and, yes, I like knitting (it’s almost as good as wanking). for quite a time, didn’t you know?

is BrowseHappy.com hacked again?

oh, noes, it appears our old fella browsehappy.com is hacked again!



(don’t bother deleting this topic. it’s cached)

Browse Happy Online Worry-free

Browse Happy. Online. Worry-free

and finally the source of HTML code. every footer’s affected.

source code of hacked browsehappy.com

source code of hacked browsehappy.com

now, I wander whether cache of the search engines constitutes a valid reliable source? and if so should the WikiPedia entry on BrowseHappy.com be updated (including the Matt’s rollback of the previous ‘hack’)?

The purpose of these forums is support

that’s what I’ve been told just before getting banned from .com fora for good.

now let’s have a look what these forums are actually about on this week:

Wordpress.com 'support' forums charts

Wordpress.com forums charts / week #27

so what do we have here? it appears the hot ten consists totally out of the ‘Off Topic’ forums threads:

  • all times #1 is about pimping your blog. whadda ya think forums are for then?
  • #2, #3, #8 and #9 apparently are forum games. definitely yet another purpose;
  • #4 is a technical thread. people like to test their avatars;
  • #5 — that’s where you can get away with bitching about people you’re supposed to ‘support’;
  • #6 — you ought to ask yourself what this thread is about. I got no time for such a research;
  • #7 is where hit whores brag about their achievements;
  • and, finally, #10 is yet another ‘pimp my blog’ thread. for some reasons naive sheep prefer an unofficial topic to this one.

keep it up, people need support!

b2\cafelog is not notable

so, yeah b2\cafelog, almost forgotten but nevertheless very important GPLed PHP3 hack, got its page removed from PediWikia. WP Happy wikipidors considered b2\cafelog as “Not notable” enough just because it “cannot stand on its own” despite it’s still being used (because it used to be the default blogware of online control panels provided by the hosts).

funny enough, but since 25 August 2007 b2\cafelog page gets redirected to the article on another PHP3 hack also famously known as WordPress™, which is due to b2 of its mere existence (as you surely know WP is a forked version of b2, that fork was possible primarily because b2 had been released under GPL). even more funny that although WP article mentions b2 as its precursor, but there’s not a single link to its site.

any bets when the article on b2evolution (yet another fairly popular b2\cafelog fork) is going to be merged with WP?

You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need

Pink Floyd // Animals // "Dogs" (originally "You gotta be crazy")

Part 1

You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you’re on the street
You gotta be able to pick up the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking

And after a while, you can work on points for style
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile
You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to
So that when they turn their backs on you
You’ll get the chance to put the knife in

You gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder
You know it’s going to get harder and harder, and harder as you get older
And in the end you’ll pack up and fly down south
Hide your head in the sand just another sad old man
All alone and dying of cancer

And when you loose control, you’ll reap the harvest you have sown
And as fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone
And its too late to loose the weight you used to need to throw around
So have a good drown, as you go down, all alone
Dragged down by the stone
