So I didn't sleep all that great last night, I never seem to when I get bad news right before I go to bed. Well, last night was definitely some bad news. I was expecting a friend to come down in December for a week, a friend I hadn't seen in quiet some time and was looking forward to spending said time with.

Well, as of last night, the trip is off....looks like it's going to be rescheduled. Meh, it happens, such is life, and you gotta roll with the punches, as the saying goes.

And things haven't been much better with waking up. The AC in the living quarter went out, which means it doesn't even want to blow out air. Which means no frigging air circulating. Good thing it's in the 40's outside, otherwise it'd be hot as shit in here. And I've had issues with my sensors all morning......

I'm just waiting to see what happens next....with my luck, the computers will die or something....'; data[0]['blog_time'] = 'Sat, 29 Oct 2011 13:30:39 -0400'; data[1] = new Array(); data[1]['title'] = 'On the subject of Wiki Software....'; data[1]['url'] = ''; data[1]['url'] = ''; data[1]['username'] = 'Dark Silver'; data[1]['blog_id'] = '5'; data[1]['blog_message'] = 'Now, I know I'm not the most technical guy on the planet, but I do have a basic understanding of technology and its ways.

then I came across MediaWiki software. For those of you who don't know, MediaWiki is one of the most used pieces Wiki software on the planet. It's supposed to be highly customizable, and easy for everyone to use.

What they dont tell you is that managing the Software, more specifically, the users and groups and everything else, HAS to be done by direct editing of the software's php files. There's no Administrator Control Panel to do this one, nothing that lets you quickly and easily handle configuration issues, or make simple changes quickly.

No, if you want to change something, you have to go into FTP, download the appropriate file, and locate the exact line you need to change (if your lucky enough to know the variable for the change you want to make), edit the line,...

As many of you are undoubtedly aware, I've been working on the updates to, the website your on right now. Let me tell you right now, loads of fun. [/sarcasm]

I've been hasseling and fiddling with the board software for the past couple of days, making sure I get everything just right, making sure none of the new mods are borked - generally doing the things a good Administrator should do. The good news is, I think I finally have everything working. The useful smilies are back (along with the LibArc favorite.... the Sheep Fucker. It didn't feel the same until I got good old :sheepfucker: back up), everything seems to work with all the themes we have running right now....I'm sure that'll break somehow though...
