A nice interface to my source codes

After Debian’s configurator seemingly doing nothing, I tried the manual route; I took the default config, edited one line to point at my repositories, and it worked~

No more mrtg-cgi \o/

All stats are now generated by PHP calling RRDTool directly, which is much nicer~

Albert of Danbooru noticed Shimmie, and linked to it in his blog. Hits then went from ~4 a month to 10+ per hour :O

The auto-mirror & redirect worked, so the extra 250MB/day traffic was safely served by my alternate host ^_^

The IRC archive activity graphs were converted from MRTG + RRD + CGIs to pure RRDTool; now they’re faster, prettier, and don’t require root access to change settings \o/

An imageboard, because danbooru + ruby-on-rails + postgresql were all being pains to install so I gave up after 4 hours, and had the basics of my own done from scratch in a half.

I’ve also set my local server to redirect missing images to the remotely hosted one, so I can have control over the dynamic parts and redirect to save bandwidth on images~

Linkage from More Random Places

My lame, old, probably copyright infringing wallpaper of Cloud in front of the ShinRa Building made in into the Italian Wikipedia o_O

Ho hum, at least this shows the automatic recovery systems work – I was back online and serving before I’d noticed PuTTY had disconnected~

I’m also back on the front page of hits for “Shish”, above MSDN \o/

Styled tooltips – not only very pretty, but also a reason to start using title / alt attributes, which makes things nicer for the text based browsers as well ^_^

Third time lucky; after once barely getting an installation and once installing text mode only to get an infinite loop of database errors, Nagios works \o/ (login guest:guest)

I have it checking up on my services, so I get emailed eg when the IRC stats pages haven’t had their hourly update, or when various network services go offline.

Websites I’ve been doing are now in their own section and linked, latest first:

* Prograde is my A-Level coursework; a system for allowing schoolwork to be marked, with the additional feature of peer review.

* Anime Connect was a redo of this; I wanted the site done properly, so I did it myself (They haven’t used it yet though, and I can’t be arsed to push it :/).

* TRM is for Travelrisk Management Ltd, my first paid-for site ^_^

* Ebonite was for Young Enterprise (now finished)
