No more blogging

@tags=constantsun-blogger-post, blogging, editthisinfo

I created a google group here:


from now on status messages and updates will be posted there. A blog is very much a one way form of communication, and I feel it goes against the collaborative nature of a wiki service. This group will be where problem...

Editthis.info upgrade

@tags=constantsun-blogger-post, editthisinfo

Editthis.info has gone through a major upgrade over the last week. It has been moved to a new database system (mysql->sqlite) and has been upgraded from mediawiki 1.5.5 to 1.15.1. This is basically a 3 year jump in versions.

Some of the reasons for the upgrade:
*Stability - The massive MyS...

Character encodings for different languages

@tags=constantsun-blogger-post, editthisinfo

Editthis.info now handles foreign characters properly (just tested cyrillic and french).

For those that are a little geeky, it seems that the php function htmlentities doesn't have a multibyte string version.

Server Errors

@tags=constantsun-blogger-post, editthisinfo

There have been a lot of server errors recently, and they are the result of system resources being overwhelmed (using up system memory and processor).

I suspect that this is due to another app I have been working on - a real time web game called constantsail.com.

I am now setting up a separate ...

EDI attacked

@tags=constantsun-blogger-post, editthisinfo

It seems that editthis.info was attacked by a distributor of malware. I have reverted the site code that was modified and removed the offending code they added (they add iframe tags that make it so when you visit editthis.info, you were also visiting their site in the background).

I have sinc...

Image upload issues

@tags=constantsun-blogger-post, editthisinfo

So Dreamhost recently locked out creation of new files on the account that hosts editthis.info. It turns out that that account had 250,000+ files, and huge file systems have been a problem for them regarding stability. Almost all of the files were in the image upload...

Transfering old wikis

@tags=constantsun-blogger-post, editthisinfo

Some of the wikis still reside on the previous server. There is now a transfer system in place. Simply go to your wiki's url and it will ask you if you want to transfer. Click the link and it will add you to the transfer queue.

If the transfer queue gets stuck (no wikis are disappearing off the ...

Updated update: didn't really do anything, but it seems to be working now.

Editthis.info downtime

@tags=constantsun-blogger-post, editthisinfo

Editthis.info will be down from Friday May 23rd to roughly Friday May 30th. My family and I are moving from New Jersey to San Francisco, California, and it will take about a week before the server is set up out there. My goal is to have it set up in 5 days, but I think 7 is more realistic.

I wil...

EditThis.info .... fast

@tags=constantsun-blogger-post, editthisinfo

The network seems to be back up to speed. I am still going to moving off the current ISP, as I haven't been happy with their service recently.

EditThis.info .... sloooowww

@tags=constantsun-blogger-post, editthisinfo

I am currently research new ISPs since recently it has had intermittent slowness/outages. I didn't really have a problem with them when they were out for a power outage, or a downed line, or a nearby transformer bursting into flame. That is just the way the network crumbles. Now it just seems to ...
