yes-www

I’ve been using blanket rule of no-www this past years and that is coming to an end.

Leaking WordPress cookies to every single sites hosted on this domain is probably not the best idea. Not that there’s any problem but just in case. Also no cookie to worry about for uploads and other static sites. Or maybe not if WordPress sets the cookie properly (it seems to be mostly does).

I was thinking of moving everything but for some single-use domains like 0paste.com it’s probably fine with no-www.

The other benefit is I can point the bare domain to a cheap server just for redirection and properly set CNAME for www subdomain instead of relying Cloudflare’s top-level CNAME function (which apparently also called “ANAME”?).

I’ve switched the redirection for www to 302 (temporary redirect) from 301 (permanent redirect) a while ago so hopefully no browser still cache the 301.

dirlist-php

A few years ago I wrote a php script to provide better autoindex within nginx. I used it for quite a long period until I rewrote it in Ruby/Sinatra. But then I figured the setup for it is overly complicated just for simple task. And takes additional memory. I always have php-fpm running anyway so it’s free.

And so I decided to take up the old php script and fix it up. Unfortunately there isn’t other language as easy to setup for web as php which is why I fixed it instead of rewriting in some other languages (or keeping it ruby). The “fixed” version is still pretty much imperative-style but hey, it works.

Only tested with nginx.

Back to old domain

As I’m too lazy to keep the other domain, this blog who nobody visits have changed the domain once again back to blog.myconan.net. animebsd.net will not be extended after next year. I’ll keep looking on access to old domain and to make sure no one accidentally visits this blog using wrong domain.

WordPress 3.5 Initial Impressions

This blog has been updated to WordPress 3.5. Initial impressions:

  • everything is less rounded now
  • Twenty Twelve (the new theme) sucks for following reasons:
    • uses custom font: causes this blog unreadable until fonts are loaded (at least in chrome)
    • image header: positioned below navigation menu (and the header text is above the menu)
    • no more search bar in navigation menu
  • the new media uploader looks useful

Overall there isn’t much change (what should I expect here) but the new theme sucks. At least to be used on this blog.

Zeropaste update

I decided to mess around with Zeropaste and added some “features”:

  • Show paste in plaintext (fixed width) and Markdown
  • Allows displaying paste in fixed width instead of full/auto
  • Setting mode and width based on url
  • Automatically updating url based on selected mode and width

0paste.com has been updated accordingly, including Rubinius 2.0.0rc1.

Now you can read glopping Asuna in convenient fixed width markdown (NSFW).

Yet another pastebin: 0paste.com

I decided to get a domain for it because of :reasons:. Anyway, the old ones from p.myconan.net is still accessible (it’ll redirect to new url at 0paste.com). Donations welcome.

Also because the world needs yet another pastebin. This one is running on Rubinius using Puma, by the way. Four threads with awesomest possible caching for showing pastes.
