A change in the way I publish information (pass and present) on the domain is coming. A new (but very old) philosophy is in my head and I hope to follow through with it. However, due to my “knee-jerking” behavior in the past, I am going to wait 48 hours to ensure that I am doing “the right thing” until it is “active.”
The web site color switching feature has returned. Enjoy!
I have temporarily disabled the web site color switching feature while I focus on the latest version.
A new site layout/design will be published soon. Stay tuned.
I am working hard on Window XP Service Pack 2 information. A few things I am doing include: Updating all Service information to be valid with the installation of Service Pack 2. Archiving all Service Pack 1a information for future reference. Removing the "Internet Gateway" configuration. Stay tuned! I will post the latest information when I finish it in the next few days.
I discovered that my E-Mail server started having issues with DNS lookups. This does not sound as though it is a bad thing. However, it turned out to be a big issue. A reboot fixed all problems, but I now am faced with hundreds of E-Mail messages because of the DNS lookup failures (since I configure my E-Mail server to use a DNS Black Hole list). Unfortunately, the only solution is to sift through the junk. This, of course, will take time.
Today, I made the change from the “old” SETI client to the new one based on BONIC. Information about this particular transition is here: http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/transition.php [link removed] After I test my systems with the new client, I will post additional details.
I am currently caught up on my E-mail and wish to thank everyone that sent kind words my way. If I did not respond to your question, forgive me, but please understand that with the volume of traffic that I receive daily, it would be impossible for me to reply to everyone.
With regards to World of Warcraft Beta, I modified a few UI files to make my life a bit easier. The changes include: Quest log is instant and shows level numbers Target tool tip moved from above the combat log to top middle of screen Mods that were taken partially from Cosmos: Party HP/Mana/Rage/Energy show always as text Party Buffs (16)/Debuffs (8) always show And something that Cosmos never had: The HP status display bar fades nicely from Green -> Yellow -> Orange -> Red.
