Second klog post ever

Ok, klog is just a tem­po­rary name, but it's 4AM, and I am not cre­ative. So, what is it? It's a PyQT client to PyD­S.

Look at the pic­ture in the link, if you wan­t!

Now, I am not sure if I will work on it much, since I on­ly did it to learn a bit about XML­R­PC, but it DOES work, or else, you won't be able to read this any­way ;-)

Ra­tio­nale: While PyDS is a great piece of work, edit­ing text through a web page feels like scratch­ing wear­ing gloves. It is doable, but it's not sat­is­fy­ing. So, I tried this just to see how hard it would be... an­swer: not very hard, re­al­ly.

Just to keep me hon­est, and keep the soft­ware some­what de­signed in­stead of piled, I am do­ing a ad­voga­to mod­ule that re­places the PyDS one (of course with much less func­tion­al­i­ty).


If this work­s, then I have some­thing here!

Safe Remote Blogging with PyDS

New tu­to­ri­al: En­abling re­mote blog­ging se­cure­ly in PyD­S, us­ing au­then­ti­ca­tion and a HTTPS re­verse prox­y.

Use­ful if you want to, for ex­am­ple, put PyDS on the In­ter­net to blog from any­where!

Man, I feel... <i>watched</i>

If tak­ing your pic­ture steals your soul, writ­ing a 128 page the­sis about a group must> do some­thing to it ;-)

Spe­cial­ly one with sub­jects like "The­o­ret­i­cal Ex­cur­sus: the Un­der­ly­ing Psy­cho­log­i­cal Mech­a­nism of In­di­vid­u­al Knowl­edge Trans­fer" and "The Know­ing Sub­ject as Au­topo­et­ic Sys­tem".

Ap­par­ent­ly the writ­ing of such things is part of the rit­u­als of pas­sage in­to adult­hood in the tribe of the humbly called "Mas­ters of So­cial and Eco­nom­ic Sci­ences" ;-)

Correction in "Fighting spam with qmail (part I)"

So, Lin­ux­to­day picks it, and it had a se­ri­ous mis­take: if­s­pamh is not a perl scrip­t, but a ko­rn shell scrip­t.

Fixed now, hope­ful­ly noone screwed his sys­tem be­cause of that ;-)
