After skipping 2.6.30 and building a new 2.6.31 I suddenly couldn't mount my ext4 drive anymore and got this rather confusing error in dmesg: EXT4-fs (sda1): Filesystem with huge files cannot be mounted read-write without CONFIG_LBDAF But...

Creating a valid WordPress theme

2009-09-12

Recently, I've been checking out some of the blogs that link back to me because they use one of my plugins. And it seems like a lot of them are using buggy, incorrect templates. It looks like many WordPress theme developers don't read the theme development checklist. Another fine document … more

PPC Mac partition oddity

2009-05-29

I have an old Powerbook and wanted to mount a USB drive I formatted with it on a Linux box. The Linux computer had a custom kernel with mac partition support (CONFIG_MAC_PARTITION).

Switching to Openbox

2009-05-28

Switching to Openbox After a decade of windowmaker and fluxbox I've switched to openbox. I was motivated by the fact that some recent fluxbox upgrade left my decor-less urxvtcs visible on all desktops which was rather annoying.
