I accidentally Google Chrome 2

I thought I downloaded Google Chrome 1 – latest stable version – or so I thought. Few minutes later, I see on slashdot that Google Chrome 2 has been released. At, it’s marked stable and pushed as stable release on Chrome website (where I downloaded the installer).

In simple words – it’s faster than Firefox (3.5 Beta 4). For Google Reader, at least. In Firefox, it takes about one second after clicking before it showed the feed while it’s instaneous in Chrome.

On unrelated news, CANAAN OP single flac tonight. I’ve uploaded it to mediafire yesterday and will seed tonight (in 12 hours or so).

danbooru, memcache and postgresql

Apparently some people got here when googling for “danbooru memcache” – which means I’m not the only one having problem with it.

I posted the solution in there which is pretty simple:

For memcache error (“uninitialized memcache constant”), add this line in config/initializer/002_caching.rb (at line 2):

require 'memcache'

As for postgresql error, comment the line following line in db/migrate20090420182044_revert_enable_auto_complete_on_users.rb (line 3):

remove_column "users", "enable_autocomplete`"

so it looks like this:

#remove_column "users", "enable_autocomplete`"

I don’t know why it’s still unfixed.

Updated installation guide soon, or later. Tell me if you need help for specific Linux distro. Or a variant of *BSD. Installation on OpenSolaris is still painful as ever (and Passenger 2.2.2 doesn’t work on it last time I tried).

Distracted, I am

The main reason I still watching Phantom

The main reason I still watch Phantom. The other is it's actually good, IMO.

Actually, ‘distracted’ is not quite accurate. ‘Escaping’ is better word for what I’m doing this past few days. And maybe in next few days, too. Until I’m forced back to reality.

Btw, Phantom is good. So is Tears to Tiara (lol @ accidental harem).

This blog is running WordPress 2.8-beta1


It’s entered beta phase already 😮

Few days ago it was -almost-beta (lol) and I just realized today the version has changed to beta1.

Using svn is indeed the best way to keep web applications updated. Updating them is now two step process at most – svn up or svn sw, and then do database upgrade if needed. No more need to deactivate plugins – still needed if it’s major jump though but doable even without doing that. Just the effect is not really good. Also no need to ‘clean up’ the blog directory to upload new (hundreds) files.

Some applications have incremental upgrade, yes. It’s not the case for WordPress though.

(And really, using svn is easy)

Faylan – CANAAN Promo(?) Single

amusic = aether-music.

Apparently no one bothered releasing this even though C75 is 6 months ago (December 2008). Or so tokyotosho said. It is there, in mp3 format. Hur hur.

Here it is. I think it’s the single. Probably. It sucks if it really is then – it’s not easily available (Comiket stuff). We’ll see if there will be another, non-comiket release for this one. It is not.

Mirror on mediafire. My upload speed sucks. And according to editor at Hydrogenaudio, Vorbis generally reaches transparency on q 5 (and this one is q 6). From same source, mp3 at 320kbps might be not transparent yet.

Tell me if you want lossless version. Or the accompanying music video.

Random: nice torrent ID on nyaa. Lol.

Eve no Jikan / Time of Eve episodde 4 sometimes this month. Or next month. Depending on how distracted I am.

Update: it is not.

nginx.conf for danbooru+passenger/mongrel

In this I assumed that passenger’s nginx is running on another server/instances/port. It’s a waste of memory, but my current setup forced me to do this.

upstream passenger {
server {
        listen 80;
        server_name mycoaldanbooruserver.lol;
        root /var/www/rails/danbooru/public;
        client_max_body_size 30m;
        location /(data|javascripts|stylesheets) {
                expires max;
        location /maintenance.html {
                expires 10;
        location / {
                try_files /maintenance.html $uri @genboard;
        location @genboard {
          proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
          proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
          proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
          proxy_redirect off;
          proxy_pass http://passenger;
        error_page 404 /404.html;
        error_page 500 502 503 504 /500.html;

Basically it simplifies the setting using 0.7’s try_files and regex-in-location method. Also usable if you happen to use mongrel(_cluster).

What’s the deal with some of those scanlators?

Sir, yes sir! Apparently I'm a moron by their standard.

Sir, yes sir! Apparently I'm a moron by their standard.

Mainly with “no mirror”, “register and post to download”, “do not post links anywhere”.

Also apparently there are some problems between scanlators and fansubbers-doing-scanlations. Like this. Or this.

I also remember crafting some lengthy post (in my brain) of comparison between scanlating and fansubbing. I got bored later and decided not to create the post. Or maybe will if I get motivated one day.

What will happen if someone upload the scanlation somewhere?

  • They will drop the project. If one of their intention ‘managing’ the release is to get the money used to buy the manga back then it means they can’t get money at all after dropping the project. And in this case apparently they bought at least one volume already. And you guys are not the only one capable of scanlating manga – even a mid-schooler can do that. Yes that’s me years ago – done with Microsoft PhotoDraw 2000. At least I know that I need to grayscale the scans first. My English still sucks though 🙁
  • Add more restriction. Because those guys scanlate manga for themselves and the people they can control. How about implementing DRM on scanlations so they can better control the circulation of their scanlations?
  • Something else.
