movie scene idea to go on power-to-exchange

on Power To Exchange
ben-agaric wants

a movie where a bank robber calmly quotes Seth Godin about the attention economy while brandishing a gun.

It's stuff like this that will make Community-Managed Taxonomy absolutely essential for PowerToExchange!

That and a decent rating system could make PowerToExchange a great spot for one-hit (or occasional hit) wonders.

Agaric Drupal Podcast Remixes: Notes

middle-to-end of Drupal podcast (#3?) - interview with Moshe Weitzman - Jeff goes on a glorious rant about time zones.

a little later:

help_edit module
drop help text right onto a page

using the help_hook

under-appreciated and underused

(Good reason-- it doesn't exist as a Drupal project at help_edit, helpedit, edit_help, or edithelp. But if Agaric can find it in CVS perhaps we can rescue it and bring it to Drupal 5 and 6 from the depths of time.)


How to make server respond to e-mail verification requests

Request for help at May First People Link here:

Hi Jamie,

You solved the problem of some e-mail servers (including an e-mail host of mine and another MayFirst member) requesting a verification of e-mail that one of the MayFirst servers wasn't responding to.

Drush subversion integration: svn add and svn commit following pm install

Posted to Drush issue queue:

Here's Agaric's workflow (ignore the lack of a link to Drush's path, we have too many Drupal installations to make that practical at the moment):

cd /var/www/drupal-5_3-live/sites/all/modules/
sudo php drush/drush.php -l pm install fasttoggle
sudo svn add fasttoggle
sudo svn commit -m "Installed fasttoggle via Drush"

High-capacity MySQL random notes

my.conf mysql max connections

grep -h oom-killer /var/log/kern.log{.0,} | cut -f1, -d: | sed 's/$/:xx UTC/' | uniq -c

aptitude install mytop

mytop -u wsf2008 -d wsf2008 -p pASsWoRd

This is just too funny.

Dan says the attach file progress bar isn't good enough. People need one like RapidShare. Hmm.
