After years of being over on Livejournal, I’ve shifted off. The dubious advertising and other epic failures of the new owners have made me wish to move for a long time. Glad it’s finally done.
The cricket (or is it a grasshopper) above was spotted while walking at Star Swamp. Mum spotted it, I doubt I’d have picked it out – it blended in incredibly well. Cute little thing!
Productive evening setting this site up. I’ve installed php5 on my Sheevaplug, set up a special ‘php’ user account to run the WordPress code (not the same as the rest of the web server), and FastCGI to tie the two together. WordPress shouldn’t be able to write to anything much that matters (other than blog content), so maybe this install will survive the ravages of the internet.
I’ve also purchased an SSL certificate for angrygoats.net – this’ll let me post to this blog securely from public WiFi. Might use the certificate to set up OpenVPN as well, while I’m at it.
I have tomorrow off work so that I can go to a staff reunion for University Computing Services down at UWA. The department hasn’t existed for quite some time, and I haven’t seen a lot of the people in a few years; really looking forward to it!
