  • I found the following in my logs, and thought it was very funny: - - [22/Dec/2015:21:43:42 -0800] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 444 5666 "-" "-" - - [22/Dec/2015:21:43:42 -0800] "GET /robots.txt HTTP/1.1" 444 5666 "-" "-" - - [22/Dec/2015:21:43:42 -0800] "GET /sitemap.xml HTTP/1.1" 444 5666 "-" "-" - - [22/Dec/2015:21:43:58 -0800] "quit" 405 5461 "-" "-"

  • I just spent hours trying to understand how the viewport functions. You can change it dynamically, but only once. That is. set it to a certain value and let the GUI take that new value in account. Then later you can change it again with another value, if you'd like.

    What I was looking to do is reset the zoom back to 1.0 after a user clicked on an image and very likely zoomed in and out to better see the image. At the time the user is done, he clicks the image once and it comes back to the website. Only, the zoom remains the same by default. Which somewhat makes sense since the browser ...

  • The other day I was looking for an error in Apache error logs and I noticed an error that was repeated over and over again:

    [info] Initial (No.1) HTTPS request received for child 5 (server
    [info] Initial (No.1) HTTPS request received for child 0 (server
    [info] Initial (No.1) HTTPS request received for child 7 (server
    [info] Initial (No.1) HTTPS request received for child 2 (server
    [info] Initial (No.1) HTTPS request received for child 4 (server

    Notice the pattern? Only one

  • This page is an extension to the InsertNode module available on Drupal.

    I include here a set of files that one may be interested in to enhance the experience with that module.

    If you have another file, let me know, and I might very well include it here (After reviewing the code!)

    Thank you.


    This file adds two prompts to help enter your [node: ... ] tag. This is based on Zewa's work.

  • Getting the OS

    First go to and get the latest version you're interesting in. They offer server version that they support for 5 years or so. I suggest one of those if you want to run a server. This is an ISO, in generate around 600Mb so be ready to wait a few hours... Even with a really fast connection, because the transfer will be limited by the mirror in most cases.

    Unless you know better, I strongly suggest you get the Ubuntu Server version. Maybe a bit more annoying to use BUT it works on ALL computers. And ...
  • History

    Today I finally noticed that the W3C validator was open source (some people are real slow!)

    This means I can get the source and run that validator on my system! Cool!

    Under Debian you can just download the package with:

       apt-get install w3c-markup-validator

    The will properly install the module, however, it won't be recognized just as is. I had to do several things to get things to mostly work...


    If you want to use a specific domain name, you will need to edit your bind configuration file and add it.


    Now, Apache is seemingly setup properly to ...

  • Preparations after unzip

    Installing SugarCRM is generally easy, but if you don't want to just make everything writable by Apache, you may find it tricky, especially if you have problems setting up the system.

    First of all, you want to get the code from and extract it in the root directory of the website where you want to use it. I prefer to dedicate a sub-domain name such as to make use of SugarCRM. That way I don't have to deal with other weird things of using this under a sub-directory.

    Once in there, the user and group should be a user other than ...

  • The other day, I wrote a module for Drupal. Up to here, no problem. What I wrote required a small amount of Javascript to make a dropdown menu feature work. That worked just fine under Mozilla and FireFox, and even Safari & Konqueror.

    When I tried with Internet Explorer, nope. Not working at all.

    The function I was using goes like this:

  • Lately, I have been working on a website that has to work on all mordern browsers (in 2007). And I have had problems with Internet Explorer and Safari. Safari is more annoying because there are less hints on the Internet, but the solutions are still quite easy to find (it's not like it's all broken or something.)

  • Today we were forced to transfer all our services from one server to another.

    One of those services is Jira.

    From what I have seen, there is no good documentation on our to migrate an instance of Jira from one Ubuntu server to another. Yet it is actually not that complicated.

    Step 1. Make sure your current instance is not running

    In order to avoid changes that would not make it to the new instance, make sure to stop Jira in the existing system. If you can, just stop Apache2 or whatever front end you are using.

    Step 2. Copy the Data

    Jira saves data in two locations: your database ...

  • proxy

    In networking, a proxy is an intermediate network connection used to hide a user or computer. Most large companies use multiple proxies to hide all of their different intranets. Technically, when using a proxy you actually send all your network data to that other computer and that computer is in charge of sending that data outside your organization. Very large companies generally have multiple levels of proxies.
