Knowhow Trading Post / Ubuntu 9.04
April 27, 2009, 05:52:00 PM
This article talks about the new Ubuntu, which I find attractive soley due to the jackrabbit logo.  Anyway, it says something about how you can use Flash, I guess easier than in other Ubuntus/Linux whatever (I have never had either installed on one of my own computers, so I'm clueless).  Does anyone know if you can run Photoshop on it (without glitchy behavior)?
Technical Support / Tracking down a malware issue
February 25, 2009, 06:43:07 AM
I was contacted from someone from Xylia, trying to track down a malware problem.  Some rather vague fan reports have indicated that my site also had this problem, but we don't know WHICH of my sites.  We think the source could be from Project Wonderful or Drunk Duck's ad system, which is all we have in common.

Has anyone heard anything like this lately, like in the last few days or so?

Reports (according to Xylia's rep):

From reader Dragonspyrit

"Hi all.. I didn't know where else to post this, so I'm putting it here in the hopes of warning others that something is amiss D:

I rediscovered Xylia Tales this morning and happily began re-reading things to get caught up.. when one of the ads on the site installed an extremely malicious batch of spyware onto my computer. It's a fake spyware removal program (I can't remember the name, since I'm using another computer while my friend heads over to try and fix mine) that constantly spawns error messages and tries to install more malware on my machine. From what I can tell the only way I can remove it is to reformat my computer :(

There is no other site this bug could have come from (the main keenspot page, not this blog) as it was the only thing I was browsing when this all went down. I know this is in no way the fault of the artist or any admin, but I wanted to warn people in case this happened to someone else. I sadly will not be able to read any more for fear of my computer. I dunno what to do :\"

And then Reader KyaStar responded to that with:

"Not good. The webcomic Crowfeathers is having this problem too."

I saw a clip of this on KLRN, and it seemed like something Xepher might like:
Web Design / chatboxes
January 07, 2009, 01:26:57 AM
Okay... so I have a cute little chatbox, and that's all I want, a cute little chatbox for fans to write their assorted dribble in.  However, the one I have now is hosted god knows where, and the archives part has been hacked into.  So.... I'm thinking I need a different one, preferably one that's more secure.  Any suggestions?
Web Design / CMSeseseses..
November 16, 2008, 07:30:31 PM
Okay, I want to build a sort of gallery site that shows 1) many single unrelated images, maybe grouped by subject, and 2) several different non updating comics [x pages of sequential art that should be grouped together somehow]. 

I've tried SomeryC and Wordpress/Comicpress so far, and I don't really like either of them.  I don't think I really need comments or a calendar or anything, but I'm not sure yet.  I could put a blog on it, but I don't know if I really want to do that or not yet.  I don't know enough to write my own system or do much in the way of modding the php itself, though altering the layout and CSS is no problem.  I can make minor coding changes if they're pretty obvious/intuitive.  My main concern at the moment is finding something reasonably light that works pretty well and isn't full of security holes or something horrible.

Oh yeah, I don't like Coppermine much either. 

What CMS should I try next?  ???
More specifically I'm here to annoy xepher, who I ran into somewhere on the internets.... lol.  OMG WE LIVE IN THE SAME HOOD.  I foresee mayhem.

I kinda knew this place existed, but I forgot about it because I didn't need hosting.  Looks like I know a bunch of you guys from elsewhere already, so, hiyas.

BTW Xeph, you're not the guy that kept emailing me like a year or so ago asking repeatedly if I wanted hosting, are you?  <.<;
