When I got the Wireless working on this laptop (a Lenovo T61), I was using Linux kernel 2.6.25. I remember that it was quite a pain, because the iwlwifi stuff had only just stabilized enough to replace the (now deprecated) ipw stuff. One of the things I didn't get working at the time was Monitor mode.

When AdSense runs out of inspiration (i.e.: no targeted ads are available), it displays public service ads by default. You can choose to replace this with a custom ad of your own choosing. To do this, you have to put a HTML page somewhere and change the alternate ads settings for the appropriate ad unit:

Previously, I tried obtaining a full Atom feed without pagination from WordPress. I didn't succeed, so I ended up writing an XSL transformation which merges all the pages of this Atom feed into one valid Atom XML stream.

I hate modules, especially core modules. I prefer code to be tightly integrated. I want it to work together. Is that too much to ask? In Drupal, most functionality has been stuffed in modules.

Today, I have to face the task of finding reliable Drupal 6 modules for image uploading and WYSIWYG editing, so I dug into my drafts bin and found an old unfinished post dated March 24, 2008 about a similar quest for Drupal 5:

My friend, Wiebe, keeps his website in Subversion. (Always keep your project files in version management or you'll be sorry.) He used to manually track the date with the last significant change in each file (because who cares about typos, right?). But, of course, he kept forgetting to update this when he actually made such changes. So, he decided that he wanted to publish the full SVN log for each page.

These are some random new PostgreSQL features that I'm interested in: The EXECUTE USING feature in PostgreSQL 8.4 will allow the use of more secure dynamic SQL in PL/PgSQL.
