So there is problems with wordpress…

Let this be a lesson to you all. I made an instinctive upgrade from WordPress 2.07 to 2.1, and since then I have experienced nothing but trouble with the integration with Gallery2 in this installation. Finally managed to work around it with replacing some new files with the old. It seems to be working for now…

So I haven’t posted anything in this category (for what should be my main category…), and this need to change. This will primarily be a picture post, so bare with me *smile*

Yesterday I took some pictures of the snow sculptures that were made last week for the winter festival arranged by StiL (student athletic organisation) here at the university, and they usually stay whole about one week. This mostly due to the fact of unsupervised 14-15 year old brat, who have nothing better to do than to destroy these things. So in a effort to save them I took pictures of them all. Some had already been destroyed, but not much. So here is a “monster” of snow

Also there are some updates to the gallery?

Damnit, you bad documentation!!!

I’m a bit upset… just a teensy weensy bit upset.

Why is there that there can’t be any good documentation for that a tracker should respond and in exactly what format. Have been going nuts these last hours, so I finally started to sniff the network traffic going in and out of my computer. All this work, but atleast now I know how a “normal” response from a tracker should look like. For those interested here is the layout


array(
'interval' => 1800, // announce interval in seconds
'peers' => array(
array(
'ip' => '127.0.0.1', // the IP of a peer
'peer id' => '-UT1610-....................', // the peer id (torrent program generates this, . = random value)
'port' => 12345 // the port this peer is listening to
),
array(
'ip' => '10.0.0.1',
'peer id' => '-AZ2500-....................',
'port' => 54321
)
)
)

Now that wasn’t so hard, WAS IT????

(and then you of course bencode it to a single string…)

So here I am…

Sorry that I didn’t post as I should have, but a update to a plugin in wordpress late last night didn’t go very well, and I was unable to post (javascript errors…). Now that’s fixed and I’m happy to do some more posting.

As of this post, I’m removing the “posting with password” as it’s more of a hassle than it’s worth. In a day or two I will post some screen shots from the dev site on the forum(Allience), with explanations to what is new and might be confusing…

As stated the RSS feed is done, download script with security created for both browser download and RSS download (though RSS download hasn’t been tested just yet….)

I had to design the peers database yesterday on a whim, which I didn’t want to do just then as I want to study the BT protocol. So it’s a simple transfer from RARPv1 to RARPv2.

So the items that are left to do:

  • announce/scrape script
  • Reverify the peers database
  • Build a peer_id database (with the clients,version numbers and whatnot’s)
  • Extend the “view” part to include viewing the files,nfo and peers
  • Testing all RSS feeds
  • create porting scripts

So to sum up what’s new in v2

  • RSS feed for filtered and unfiltered downloads or view links
  • Nuke capability. A owner,administrator or siteop can mark a torrent for deletion (nuke) if there is a proper or double post. It will then be deleted through a cronscript after at least beeing nuked for 24 hours. This way it can be replied to torrent software that this is about to be deleted and not make the software stand with the error: torrent not registered
  • Two view’s of the listings. One with category images and one without
  • Brand spanking new category system and filter creations

With this the weekend of coding is over, and were back to normal coding (after work etc…)

In the middle of nowhere…

To paraphrase: It’s been swell, but the swelling is gone. This week has been a non stop buffet of puzzles for the brain, where one of the larger were how to get my freakin’ Cyrus-IMAP/Sendmail server going. It’s has been a struggle from the very beginning and about 2 minutes ago I solved it! It’s a nice feeling, but there is probably a lot to look out for in the mail logs.

To sum this week up so far:

  • Monday: late laboratory untill 19:15. 19:30 throw myself into a taxi to go to Bishops Arms in downtown Luleå. There meet up with two of my closes friends for dinner and have a beer or two. 23:00 realize that I’m drunk on a monday…
  • Tuesday:  A disoriented lab, and some generally confused statments…
  • Wensday: A “name of the day”-dinner in my honnor. As this Wensday was valentines day, and my full name is Linus Sebastian Valentin Lejon Isaksson this had to be celebrated. A nice dinner with my friend Ewe and her friend Milla (Mikka on the T9 sms).
  • Thursday, early lab and then batteling it out with Sendmail. Spent the entire day on the console….

So that’s my week so far. Need to get some sleep soon as I have another early lab tomorrow, and this time we can do the analysis of the material as the equipment is complete again.
