Wordpress is cool, but MySQL + PHP is just so much overhead. Trying out Hugo and static pages.

Back after a long hiatus

Found an old backup, restored it through a bunch of hoops, I know this is missing a bunch, but I don’t have anything more recent. Doh! Hopefully the wayback machine will see this domain back up and let me view the old snapshots that used to have the stuff I’m missing…

No really, our customer service can help you.

Just checking out my old friends at [The Planet][1] and a window popped up offering to help me via chat. Ok, I’m all for saving myself some time.

Well the big [iMac giveaway][1] drawing happens in about 24 hours… Let’s hope my luck continues – This week has been a hum-dinger: Last Wednesday, we received an offer on our house We countered, and the buyer accepted our counter-offer on Thursday We went to look at houses on Saturday, and found one we really liked, and it’s a spec home at juuuuuuust the right stage where we get to have some good input We wrote an offer on the spec home for less than the asking price, in exchange for finishing the basement ourselves We got word on Sunday that the seller accepted our offer We had meetings with 2 lenders on Monday We locked a good rate Today with our preferred lender So all in all, it’s been a great week.

Win an iMac? Yes please!

So my daughter Emma is 4 now, and her ruby iMac is on its last legs. It’s been up on blocks for a couple months now, and I just can’t seem to get it to boot off anything but the internal drive so I can upgrade the OS to something past 10.2.8. What a pleasure that I just happened to run across the Stay At Home Dad iMac Give-Away contest being run by Mike over at his blog Stay At Home Dad, Geek Style, in concert with Sittercity, which I’d never heard of before, but looks quite interesting, given the need for babysitters with a 4 year old in the house.

Macports and mod_authnz_ldap

Ok, so typically you don’t install apr-util with openldap support. Well mod_authnz_ldap requires it. :/ So what you have to do is re-build it with openldap support and re-install. Sounds easy? Well the funny thing about ports is even though you build a new version (with the +openldap variant) and install it it doesn’t get used for some reason. Here’s how you get it working: port -f uninstall apr-util<br /> port install apr-util +openldap Sounds easy?
