Server Migration

We'll be moving servers either next weekend or the following one.

The current server is kind of expensive, and I've kept it around because moving servers is a pain.  Thanks to a post-Black-Friday special offer and account credit with another hosting provider, I've managed to bag a new server with basically the same capacity for just $107.10 for the next 12 months.  Not $107.10 per month, but for the entire year.  (More thereafter, but still a fraction of what I spend currently.)

I'll get things in gear tomorrow and most likely do the migration next weekend, so that it's all bedded down well before Christmas.

Update: The server is named Mikan, which is one of my roster of anime-schoolgirl-goddess-colour-names.*

http://ai.mee.nu/images/mikan-iro.jpg

I couldn't remember where I took the name Mikan from.  I did a quick Google and aha!  Gakuen Alice.  I haven't thought about Gakuen Alice in years.  Now I want to go watch it again.


* That is, the mu.nu / mee.nu / mee.* servers are all named after anime schoolgirls who are also goddesses (or at least magical) and whose names are also colours.  There's more of those than you might think.

Cert This

Got an email today (yesterday now, actually), from MyCERT, the Malaysian Computer Emergency Response Team.  

Usually such notifications are to report spam or phishing attempts coming from a server in the mununiverse, meaning some poor soul got their CPanel or Wordpress account hacked.

This time it was instead a cyber harassment complaint.

Relating to a small JPEG image.

Of a cartoon.

On an item, on a blog, posted in 2012.

Discussing censorship.

MyCERT copied our hosting provider, so I sent them - our hosting provider, that is - a query asking if the image violated their terms of service, which seems unlikely.

If I get hit with a valid DMCA request I will comply fortwithly, because otherwise our hosting provider will comply by yanking our connection (which they need to do to keep their legal immunity under the DMCA).

But I'm more likely to edit user comments for spelling than to remove an image because it "harassed" someone.

Update: Our hosting provider said, and I quote:

Looks like free speech to me.  Closing ticket.

Incero.  Love these guys.

USS Clueless Archive

USS Clueless seems to be well-preserved at archive.org.  If you want to revisit the site from when it was active, this link seems a good place to start.

When he was retiring from political blogging, Steven made a zip file of all his posts available.  That's also been preserved by archive.org, but you have to hunt around a little to find it.  

I've uploaded it to my own server as well, and you can download it here.

Update: Commenters have noted that the archive is not complete.  Work is under way to produce a complete archive of USS Clueless and the original Chizumatic and make it publicly available.  The server is safe and in good hands.

42 Days Of Suggestions

[Stickied.  I forgot I could sticky things.]

As I mentioned, I'm planning to watch and review 42 films in the space of 42 days - the summer school holidays here in Sydney.

I can probably find 42 films to watch, but I'm certainly open to suggestions.  Just three requirements:
  1. I haven't seen it before.*
  2. It must have some redeeming quality.
  3. It must be available in some reasonable way.


List

3. Brave **ยฝ
4. The Iron Giant **ยฝ
5. The Prestige
6. Inside Out ***
7. Inception
8. The 36th Chamber of Shaolin
9. Skyfall
10. Dark City
11. The Shawshank Redemption
12. The Martian
13. Mad Max
14. The Mouretsu Pirates Movie
15. Frozen **
16. Interstellar
17. 300
18. Crank ***
19. Metropolis
20. Watchmen
21. Sucker Punch
22. Pacific Rim
23. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
24. Only Yesterday
25. A Monster in Paris ****
26. Shoot 'Em Up
27. Minority Report
28. Secondhand Lions
29. To Kill a Mockingbird
30. Arrietty ***ยฝ
31. The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift
32. Army of Darkness
34. Desperado
35. Sin City
38. Double Indemnity
39. The K-On! Movie ***
40. The Adventures of Tintin **ยฝ
41. The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya ***
42. Star Wars: The Force Awakens ***

(I may rearrange the order depending on what I feel like watching from day to day, but I plan to get to everything on the list.)

Scores

**** Everything it could have been and everything I could have wanted. It's rare for a film to do both; I'm not objective in my ratings and don't pretend to be.

*** Very good, well worth watching, and recommended.

** Adequate. Or perhaps it was well-made but didn't grab me, or it grabbed me but was badly flawed. Something you might watch on a rainy afternoon and not count your time wasted.

* Not very good at all. Not recommended unless you are feeling particularly perverse.

ร˜ A stinker with no net merit whatsoever. A black hole where talent and money went to die.


* Which you can't possibly know unless I've mentioned it here, so fire away.

Sorry About That Glitch...

We had a firewall issue that blocked access to our DNS servers, which effectively shut down...  Everything.

Then we had a NAT issue after I fixed the firewall.  The two problems were related, but I'm still not sure exactly why they happened in the first place.

Anyway, all coming back to normal now.

Sorry About The Site Glitches

Our statistics database filled up. This wasn't immediately obvious from the logs, and since it was due to a size limit being set too low rather than running out of server resources, it wasn't obvious from the state of the server.


It's been addressed now, the server processes have been restarted to clean up any hung connections, and all should be well with the world.

Spam Spam Spam Spam

One of our spam filters wasn't working due to a network configuration error.  Hence, spam.  Lots of spam.  Spamlots of spam.

Should improve now.  There's still a DNS hiccup that I'm waiting to correct itself, but I can't hurry that along.

Update: DNS hiccup should be fixed now.  Double-fixed soon.

Update: There we go, double-fixed.
