Its just good

The weather the past couple of weeks is just awesome, my spirit is always high with rain and thunder, today or rather yesterday friday the 13th, i woke up to the sound of thunder and rain, and its just good 🙂

The project im working on is on halt until the dude returns from his 3 week trip, which is good, my hand is better and rested due to the cream i got prescribed by the doctor.

I have so many good stuff goin on :

western union  payments for Jordanian publishers, i will be updating my  adsense code on my websites to get better CTR, i have neglected adsense since 2008 and the revenues dwindled down.

Its been almost a week without sleeping pills, im struggling abit, but its good, im eating breakfast and taking my vitamins 🙂 i cut my hair, its barely reaches my shoulders, feels more healthy now, gracias a mi prima hermosa.

Just got word that Draconian will be releasing a new album titled “A Rose for the Apocalypse” on June 23rd, here is a track from the new album dubbed The last hour of ancient sunlight. its very beautiful, but it needs many spins to sink in.

I have found a php parser for ptb, gpro tab files which means i can now extract the meta information from them and batch export them to ascii code which means that i have additional 50000-70000 files to be added to my websites, i already extracted the ptb files and i have 18000-19000 files ready and im batch importing them to my local database.

I had a webhosting package with a big webhost for more than 10 years now, and the last couple of years they were bought and the service got so bad, the uptime and reliability was horrid, and to top it all, they increased the fees! so i refused to pay for one of my hosting packages until they clarify to WHICH domain i am paying it for! so eventually they blocked access to my sites control panel, one month later they suspended my control account and databases, i found out they blocked it because i had my email bombarded with error emails that i setup as a trigger whenever someone couldn’t download a file, my inbox was getting an averge of 120-180 emails every hour, so i got my latest backup ( few months old, bad doomish bad) and i got a new hosting package at another company, and setup the domains and databases, they were up and running within few hours! i thought all is good….

The error emails kept coming, but at a very low rate, digging deeper, i found out that all my ftp backups didn’t backup files with non-ascii language characters, and there was a very good amount of them, around 4000 files, and i dont have the files 🙁 long story short, through google and the support and knowledge base of my old webhost, i managed to logon to an old out of commission server that i was hosted on, and surprisingly, the server was online, it took me 30 minutes to remember my password on the old server and voila… all my files were there, in pristine condition, even my old mssql server was online, i managed to get my files and databases, and the sites were online error free!

now with the problem i just encountered, and to avoid it in the future, i had to rename my files to ascii code, so that if shit happens again, i wont get a problem, so there i was scripting away and renamed  50000+ files on the fly and re-uploaded them and updated the database, crossing my fingers with this new approach, i slept with the hopes that no error emails would be in my inbbox when i wake up the next day!

I woke up and my inbox had no error emails, happy with that, i opened one of my websites on the ipad, the websites wont load! GRRR assuming i did something wrong the previous night while scripting half asleep, i made a cup of coffee while cursing and started checking what the problem was, to find out the server im newly hosted on was down! and lasted for not less than 12 hours. but when my sites came back online, all was well 🙂

With the joy of scripting under pressure, the discovery of the parser mentioned above, the current beautiful winter weather, the lack of interest of my rival in updating his big website, im thinking seriously to relaunch one of my websites, i know for a fact that there will be many friends that will help me, alot of volunteers are eager to have a new solid platform to add new content to. but the question that is lurking in my head, do i have the time and stamina for this? if yes, code from scratch or use drupal or other CMS?

    The only thing I remember from this longer-than-life post is your hair cut short. It was about time! All the women in the family, including fizzoo, have hair shorter than yours.

    @Noub, as your nickname goes… my answer is noub :/
    i shall have long hair until i say enough.
    besides, since when you have a right wing extreme socioeconomically charged hair length issues.
    or is it that you have short hair, everyone else should have one.
    last i checked, females usually tend to have long hair, and yet you don’t :/

    and look at what your poisoned words did, they influenced twinkie’s views to side by yours.

    You are a bad Noub! bad Noub.

    @Rain, im kinda disappointed in you at the moment.
    i always took you for a person who sides with everyone’s right to do what they want.

    lo and behold, you crushed the minorities.
    😯

    Stop whining please, and think logically.

    I am a right-wing person coz I am ALWAYS right. Here’s the proof:

    1. Having short hair makes financial sense. Less hassle, less spending on haircare products, time-saving (which translates to saved money since time=money), etc etc. Therefore, my argument holds true.

    2. The length of your hair affects your financial health, which is very much my business. Therefore, your argument about “NOUB” is not valid.

    3. For justification of my short hair, refer to point 1.

    Hence proved that, as always, I am right.

    Face the reality: you’ll go bald sooner or later.. better sooner than later, I say.

    @RAIN: Thank you for siding with the right party. My faith in the sanity of human race is restored thanks to your intelligent comment.

    To further your point: Long, “unkempt”, “untidy” hair is a complete no-no.

    The saying goes: Left is right, and Right is wrong!

    @ #1 i don’t use hair products, aside from shampoo+conditioner in one bottle, so you are wrong there, and to contradict your point further more, you added to twinkies response “unkempt”, “untidy” which assumes i have unkempt and untidy hair, which means there is no time spent/wasted there, in conclusion, point 1 is baseless.

    @#2 you have failed to sustain your frivolous theory about length of hair with financial health. you didn’t present any proof of that.

    @ #3 i don’t care if you are bald,short hair or long hair, as long as you are well fed, well kept in the baboon zoo of your choosing 🙂

    For the complete saying, kindly refer to the Martian Law of Left-Right-Wrong-Right, clause 35: “…, and Right is wrong, and wrong is ALWAYS right…”

    FYI: Unkempt + untidy comment was a general comment, but if it applies to you.. yuck!

    FYI: not using appropriate haircare products (there are at least 35 essential haircare products, plus 350 optional ones, plus 3500 must-haves for people with curly hair) => lack of hygiene => serious health issues => increased expenditure on healthcare services.

    FYI: Not using appropriate haircare products => early loss of hair => future expenses in terms of hair surgeries/transplants/wigs, etc etc.

    FYI: Untidy and unhygienic hair => loss of potential clients => Loss of money. (Not to mention the loss of females who would be interested in marrying you.. which means we, the family, would end up taking care of you FOREVER! An absolute no-no).

    As for being well-fed, thank you for your concern; however, I can buy my own food.. although the zoo people are very nice too.

    I’m with you Doomish, long hair rules. Albeit, I only got my hair long in high-school and first few years of uni. Now, it’s longer than average, but not that long.

    And I love unkempt hair… I wouldn’t have it any other way! I prefer the hair to feel smooth and soft. Gel and similar products make the hair feel like plastic… Yucks!!
