KeePass 2.28 has just been released.
I’ve just upgraded at home (Fedora 20 and OS X both on Wine) and at work (Windows 7) and everything looks fine.
Read about my Adventures with DropBox and KeePass to see how I make use of it.
This site hosting thing really is the gift that keeps giving.
I wrote a little over a week ago about an outstanding issue with the website, which seemed to be related to people’s company proxy servers, rather than my web server. While I was staying at the Sofitel, I started to get the issue where the HTTP address for my website was giving me the following error.
You don’t have permission to access / on this server.
I did 4 upgrades and all went fine. I can’t say things look that different after it, but you’ve got to keep on top of these upgrades I guess.
Today’s the first day of school in my city, and the plethora of “OMG 1st day of school!” posts of Facebook and my own kids heading back in to slog through another year of fundamentals got me thinking about education. My own kids (12/daughter and 10/son) came home and went swimming since it was about 104 degrees today…the hottest day of the summer, as it were.
I moved my website to a new dedicated server about 3 weeks ago. As well as the usual DNS nonsense, I found out today that a whole load of emails have been blocked…
I have a mailbox at the hosting company to handle all my email. That all gets sucked into Gmail. That’s the way it has been for ages and life has been good. Since I made the move, the “new” mailbox looked like it was working fine, but I hadn’t noticed the spam filtering was turned on to a really high level and it was blocking loads of good emails. As a result, a lot of really important emails were gathering in the spam folder of my mailbox at the hosting company, something I never check.
I’ve now turned off the spam filtering on that mailbox, so it all gets sucked into Gmail and that handles my spam, the way it always did…
While I was away on that F5 Load Balancer I noticed MobaXterm 7.2 is now available.
I made use of that and PortableApps.com to get a familiar environment set up…
After the previous day’s “networky” stuff, day 3 was back to some stuff that was more relevant to me. Amongst other things, I got a quick primer on IPv6, which was pretty useful and we looks at iApps and iRules. It looks like I will be writing lots of iRules using TCL to replace the functionality of our Apache reverse proxies. Fun, fun, fun…
We finished at about 15:00, so I hit the road and managed to do the M25 and M40 in a reasonable time. It wasn’t good, but it could have been a lot worse.
The challenge now is to get to work on Monday and try to start putting some of this stuff into practice before I forget everything.
Day 2 was a lot more “networky”, so it was pretty tough. I got through all the labs and stuff worked, but if I’m honest I didn’t really have a clue what I was doing. Added to that, I won’t have privilege to do most of the stuff we covered when I’m on the real kit, so I’m pretty much going to forget it all in a few days.
Once again, it’s testament to the course that a complete networking gumby like me was able to survive the day.
Day 3 has got some sections that are more relevant to me. I’ve been swimming, so now it’s Monster, Diet Coke and Coffee for breakfast, check out of the hotel, then head off to start day 3.
