I guess it’s not always as easy as it seems…

Subalbums in ZenPhoto
Date: February 23rd, 2007 by SiD3WiNDR
Categories: Interweb, Software, Websites

I’d think sub-albums are basic part of any gallery/album software, yet Zenphoto which is supposed to be all-new and web2.0’ish still doesn’t support it after more than a year… how hard can it be? 🙁 Dissapointing…

Pirate bay is up

Yes, probably old news 😉 but I thought I’d mention it here for completeness, as I blogged about the downtime. They’re up again , from the Netherlands, hosted at Leaseweb (home of Mininova as well) 😉 With a nice touch to the logo of their pirate ship bombing Hollywood 😉

The built-in editor of WordPress isn’t really all that fancy as it appears, breaking some layout and such. So since yesterday I switched to EditorMonkey , which is a plugin that gives you a highly configurable WYSIWYG editor using TinyMCE or FCKeditor. Way better! 🙂

Why Linux is better
Date: March 19th, 2006 by SiD3WiNDR

Yes, yes, it’s GNU/Linux 😉

 Stumbled upon this page with a very clear look on why Linux is actually better (than Windows) for you, and your computer. It doesn’t hammer again and again on the freedom (as in speech or as in beer) but more on the actual advantages which can help you persuade others to try this wonderful OS out 😉

Google AdSense doubles your hits
Date: March 13th, 2006 by SiD3WiNDR

I was wondering why every time I did a search on the search counter incremented by 2. I checked through my code but nowhere was that statement being executed twice. After a while, thinking about something else related to AdSense, it dawned on me… I recalled seeing Google AdSense hits in my access_log for the site, requesting the exact same page as the user (to adjust to the content on the page). On a “search engine” ofcourse, this means that Google does the exact same search as the other user, effectively doubling the number of searches logged… I have adapted my code to check the user agent, will be fixing up the database later so that Google’s hits aren’t included anymore…

New OpenWrt package tracker
Date: February 28th, 2006 by SiD3WiNDR
Categories: Interweb, Software, Websites

The package tracker has been offline for a prolonged time and it doesn’t look like it’s coming back any time soon. So I took the task upon myself of creating a new one, started on friday, went public yesterday. I posted the link into the OpenWrt forum and have had some users use it already. You can find it at Now my cute Sun Netra X1 “magic” finally has something to do 😉
