jooon: There is no email address anywhere near your personal page. You should fix that.

Work: None for the next three weeks. ;O)

Work on pirxx is progressing fast; coding on company time helps a lot.

You people have no life to start with, and then you begin to count virus hits on your server. Good call! :>


Some asshole destroyed my car's wipers last night. Great!

Wrote a little HOWTO on setting up an automated dyndns client on a SuSE system.

Installed SuSE 7.0 on my old 486-100 yesterday, so that I have a UNIX playground @home again. Things went smoother than my previous FreeBSD installs, though those were about 2 years ago.

MoinMoin Release 0.9

A WikiWikiWeb is a collaborative hypertext environment, with an emphasis on easy access to and modification of information. MoinMoin is a Python WikiClone that allows you to easily set up your own wiki, only requiring a Web server and a Python installation (1.5.2, 1.6 or 2.0).

This release adds XSLT formatting for XML pages, translation of system text (currently supporting German, Swedish and French), Python syntax highlighting, new macros and actions (WantedPages, OrphanedPages, DeletePage) and many little improvements.

New features:

  • XML page input (pages that start with "<?xml") and XSLT formatting
  • Page caching, for now limited to XSLT processing (where it's absolutely needed); new code & API to add the "RefreshCache" link
  • Selection of common date/time formats in UserPreferences
  • New action "titleindex" to support wiki introspection (MetaWiki); see the new links below the index bar in "TitleIndex"
  • UserPreferences: editable CSS URL for personal styles
  • PageInfo: the editor's name or IP is shown for each change
  • WantedPages: a new macro that lists links to non- existent pages
  • OrphanedPages: a new macro that lists pages no other page links to
  • Extensions to the FullSearch macro (see HelpOnMacros)
  • Python syntax highlighting
  • "DeletePage" action (has to be activated, see MoinMoinFaq)
  • "Remove trailing whitespace from each line" option in the editor
  • I18N (currently German and Swedish)
  • Config option "url_schemas" to extend the supported URL types
  • Improved tracebacks by using Ka-Ping's "cgitb"


  • The editor now sends a "no-cache" HTTP header
  • "PageList" results are now sorted
  • New config parameter "html_head_queries": send additional header for all pages EXCEPT the "normal" view; main usage is to have only the normal pages indexed by a spider, not the edit, print, etc. views (which cause multiple hits on the same information)
  • Store the modification time of the page file in the editlog, not the current time when the log entry is created

Installed Bugzilla today at work, with the help of a coworker. While it relies on a rather long list of other modules, it was not too hard to get it to run. Install docs are sufficient.

DSL rocks. =))

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
