No I will definitely not participate on pissing contest which does not include my home town. Please include Prague and I can imagine I will fill in how many metros arround the world have I been in :-).
Do Google sitemaps have effect?
I just looked over Google webmaster tools which looks like interesting way to get some information from Google about page ranking, top search where it is being listed and crawler found errors on pages. It also suggests everybody to supply sitemap with information about last update time of pages on site.
I found plugin for MediaWiki so I added it to phpMyAdmin wiki, generating it for this blog was pretty easy as here is only static content and for phpMyAdmin demo server with few indexable pages it was trivial. However I'm not yet convinced to invest much effort in creating sitemap for cihar.com as it is too complicate to create. Let's see if sitemap will make Google sooner index my changes.
Nanoblogger customisations for next time
As time goes, I again needed to touch NanoBlogger code. I again saw there is bug with calendar alignment, for which I made simple patch, hopefully it will get soon into CVS.
Another thing I wanted to improve is displaying of feeds in web browser. This can be simply done by adding CSS style.
If you want to list all category feeds on main page, you can find it in my patch for generating this listing.
Next code is to allow inclusion of blog listings in other pages on my site such as phpMyAdmin demo. This is achieved by generating special pages which only list entries.
And last thing is enabling and fixing of title based permalinks, which was first thing I hacked for NanoBlogger :-).
Update: I filed NanoBloggers patch tracker with all those patches, let's see how much of them will get included.
Thanks for motivating me
This is a bad day. I'm bad guy because I don't have web pages about Wammu in my native language, I hacked absolutely useless CSV import code in phpMyAdmin. What comes next?
I would make bilingual pages if I'd have time for that, but I will rather write new feature in Wammu than spend time on this.
And I know export is not perfect, everything can be improved and you are welcome to do that!
Sample config after long wishes
Since we've removed default configuration from top level directory,
people often copied
config.default.lib.php what was not something we
Last week I finally decided to make some sample config which will be placed in top level directory, so that people can easily start from it and add further options after reading documentation or wiki. Let's see if it will prevent people from copying defaults in upcoming release.
Time for antidotes
Ouch, I see all symptomes of WORK virus on me, so it's time to leave work and go cure myself. Thanks Martin for saving my life :-).
Single signon for phpMyAdmin
After seeing several hacks to achieve this I finally decided to write something what might be later integrated inside phpMyAdmin codebase. You can find result in our patch tracker, if it turns to be usable for somebody, I will commit it in CVS.
No sponsors found?
Hmm it looks like I'm doing something wrong when trying to find sponsor for some package which I want to put into Debian. I already gave up with wmmp as I lost interest in using it meanwhile, but I'd love to see Czech-English dictionary in distribution as there are quite a lot of users here.
I hope that this time I will manage it earlier than in half year as it took for Gammu, because I'd like to have in in next stable…
Maybe it's time to start new maintainer process to avoid begging for each upload.
Troll resistant bugtracker?
I just found out that Mantis is not troll resistant bug tracker. I haven't noticed that in default configuration any reporter can "remind" all registered users and make them monitoring any issue. And there is no way to stop monitoring from Mantis. This is exactly what happened to bug 161.
I removed them using phpMyAdmin and I hope that I didn't break anyting. As next I disabled reminding for reporters in Mantis and I hope I didn't upset too much people. If I did, I'm really sorry.
Update: It looks that user was only too impatient and expected reply…
Casino is too addictive
I will never ever play casino through jabber, it just cost too much time and man still wants to win back money (even if it is not about real money).
Anyway it is nice Jabber application, thanks guys!
