Comments on Blog

Russell Coker, if you have enabled comments for blog, make sure that they can be used. And no, I do not think creating blog on blogger.com is appropriate way to post a comment.

Hmm all I wated to say to your spam blocking is that you can do SMTP time bayes (using spamassasin) using sa-exim, but I'm pretty sure there exist more alternatives.

phpMyAdmin wiki

Today I lanched experimental period of phpMyAdmin wiki. Feel free to share your experiences with phpMyAdmin and/or contribute documentation.

I'd like to move it later to wiki.phpmyadmin.net, so don't think that this URL is permanent, but we will see later if this is possible.

How to become number one in market?

On tuesday I realised how to become number one on mobile market. At least what marketing says is number one.

Stop random people in shopping centre and give them free precharged SIM cards. This way you will quickly have largest number of active SIM cards. No matter that those people never paid you anything, but they will be "active" for next year (or how long does card takes to expire when there is no credit). Good job T-Mobile :-).

Nanoblogger update

I ran cvs update on NanoBlogger and I was suprised that it has new feature :-). So since today you can view per day archives. It doesn't make much sense for my blog, but sometimes it happens to contain more entries, like last Sunday.

No that I'd miss this feature, but I felt there is something missing when man followed structure of generated files. Thanks to developers!

Userspace software suspend

Yesterday I tested µswsusp for first time and everything suprisingly worked well on my desktop computer. I can suspend to disk and RAM and resume without any problems. Now it only needs my board to be whitelisted so that I don't have to force it. But for some reason ASUS have chosen to fill in total crap in DMI, probably to make identification harder:

Handle 0x0001, DMI type 1, 25 bytes
System Information
        Manufacturer: System manufacturer
        Product Name: System Product Name
        Version: System Version
        Serial Number: System Serial Number
        UUID: 94C96C90-74FE-D511-A6B9-13393877187A
        Wake-up Type: PCI PME#

Handle 0x0002, DMI type 2, 8 bytes
Base Board Information
        Manufacturer: ASUSTeK Computer INC.
        Product Name: P5LD2-VM
        Version: Rev 1.xx
        Serial Number: MB-1234567890

So the patch for whitelist would look a bit funny:

{ "System manufacturer", "System Product Name", "System Version", "0406    ", 0},

Yes it's too much work to fill in this information if you call your product "The Best Intel All in One Solution with Dual Core CPU Support"…
