I've had quite a bit of fun today...

Last week the good people at LunarPages moved me off the Windows machine I was on and put me on one of their new and faster Linux servers. I was getting fairly consistent database errors on the Windows server, and sometimes mail problems, mainly from over use by other accounts. They always reacted quickly, and put a temporary monitor on the server to track down rouge queries. But they said it was all set up on Linux, so those issues are quickly dealt with... plus the new data centre offers significant performance improvements (at a cheaper cost): so why not??

The move across was pretty painless:

  • Export databases from mySQL on Windows
  • Import databases into mySQL on Linux
  • Download files using FileZilla
  • Zip them up and upioad them to Linux and unzip them there

But the fun I've had was installing Mantis: the Bugtracker. Not that I'll ever push it past its limits, as I'm only a hobby coder after all.

Previous to this I was using the very good ToDoList that I synchronized between my home computer and work via my USB drive. This worked well, but I thine Mantis is going to be better.

It's not finished, but I've got the Anominous Bug Reporter working, and just needs to be inserted into the site; I just had to adjust the PHP code a little for the site (not often I get into PHP :>>.

Scribbly is derived from the common name of one of the 10 Eucalypts that have insect trails (scribbles) in the bark. Eucalyptus haemastoma is a dominant species where I live and is commonly known as "Scribbly Gum".

The scribbles on the bark of these magnificent trees often reminded me of the journey of many of my projects: somewhat random, but beautiful in the end.
