At the weekend we went to look at some Chinchillas at a Chinchilla Rescue place in Rushden. They had loads of Chins there (my guess is 50+). We decided to get one of them as our Chin Travis seems to be lonely after the - sudden - death of Gizmo (R.I.P). We'll pick him up later today - still gotta decide on a name though as the current name from previous owner is a bit strange and we'll have to change it as I keep forgetting.
The Chin. Rescue place also had 3 dogs (2 of them like the size of ponys!!!)
After that we had a BBQ both days - first day I had some trouble getting fire going as I didn't notice i put some 'dust/old ash' in it :( . - Also forgot to use the -fresh(!)- salmon the first day so we had it sunday :)
Quite a good weekend all in all and not too busy ;)
oh and got a parcel with some Gamecube controllers and power supply for our Japanese Gamecube / European Wii ;) gotta test them later (shoudl also get a game for the japanese Gamecube later .. ups is taking a while it seems :)
Edit: also cut my finger with a like 20-30 cm blade bread knife (nearly cut a bit off, but only shallow cut.. ;) )
UK Taikai is over - got home sunday night (just before midnight ;)).
Was a great experience and I'm sure I'll go again if there is a chance. Unfortunately I could not go to the banquet, as it was too late and getting home even later was not practical for me or the guys I took with me in my car.
Coming back i noticed that my FastHosts server had bee rebooted for some reason so I went to sort it out. (webpage was down as i forgot to enable automatic start up of apache .. this sux ..).
Anyway got plenty of problems still with dbmail (especially the IMAP daemon. - doesn't move emails unless like one by one, gives strange errors sometimes when using evolution,... )
attaching some logs here as I can't attach them on the dbmail tracker. (will link to it.)
Busy day again..
After having to go to a clients site yesterday it was quite busy again.
In my lunch break I went to the library (had some books due back tomorrow which i couldn't renew anymore ;'( ) and fixed some drupal modules for postgresql. list below:
birthdays module had no pgsql code at all so big patch for this to make everything work: http://drupal.org/node/137907
Releasemonitor pgsql SQL install (create table) code had a bug. fixed that too: http://drupal.org/node/137885
BUEditor had some insert problems on pgsql 8.1 (no multiple inserts - apparently the latest and greatest pgsql has that but not many ppl use it yet afaik ...). fixed that ;) : http://drupal.org/node/137006
and of course loads of work anyway ;)
will probably not write anything for the next 2 days because of the taikai.
Really looking forward to the Genbukan UK Taikai 2007.
It'll be in Southampton and the Grand master will attend too! ;)
Been busy the last few days to install drupal on my server for both my website as well as my wife's. Hers has definitely more content so far as I spent my time setting up everything so it works and so she can easily use it without my help as well :)
Rats.. i forgot to check GWN again to see if I got to translate a dev of the week section and of course there is one now .. fortunately rather short :)
