I managed to actually upgrade PHP in place without breaking shit.

Do I have time for one more rant? I mean, it’s not quite the end of 2018 and I haven’t made very many of them over the course of the year. I think we deserve one more…don’t you?Continue reading “Fuck The Mouse: Disney Is Evil & Needs To Fuck Off”
I had to change registrars….this was fun…and adter the behavior of the previous one I’m glad I got away from them.
For the last few years I’ve had my domain at Netfirms. The prices were agreeable and I never had an issue. That however changed over the weekend when I went to renew my domains.
The first thing that happened is my credit card wasn’t accepted. The only reason I can think of is some kind of block on international transactions since the registrar is based in Canada. But what got me is this suspended my account every single time. This required me to email in a copy of my driver’s license.
I did this…they told me to try again. Same thing. Account locked. Resubmitted payment…failure and suspension again. I tried PayPal…instant suspension.
No matter what I did…they didn’t want my money and didn’t seem to want me as a customer. I already emailed them my driver’s license several times..I was getting sick of it.
So I decided to transfer over to Namecheap. I had them for a WordPress blog back before I bought this server and…it was ok. So I got my auth codes…paid Namecheap…and submitted the transfer.
This is where the previous registrar went total asshole. The very first thing they did before notifying me about the pending transfer was cancel my account. Then they sent me some badly worded and confusing email. What thrys sent me was a confirmation of transfer…what they told me is that it was a link to cancel and that my domain would auto transfer on Thanksgiving.
In the meantime…they malformed my DNS entries…effectively hijacking my domains. While my IP was still showing up…they had added theirs to it. All of my resources were unavailable. Things kept running and if I happen to want something on a port they didn’t have on their parking server…I could still get in. But all the web content was locked away.
Anyway…turns out the page thry linked me was a confirmation and cancellation page. Oncr I clicked the confirmation link…they transferred in five minutes.
Some have told me the DNS stuff was normal when using registrar basic domains, others have said its hostile. I think if anything, NetFirms was trying to make it as difficult and confusing as possible; as a customer that’s a bit shady and a reason to never use them again.
I have high hopes I won’t have these problems with Namecheap.
Though this is more radio related, I try to keep anything remotely political off the ham blog. The personal blog is for stuff like this…where I’ll probably go political. You are hereby warned.
Not this stupid bullshit again. First, it was a dress, then it was shoes, now it’s some stupid bullshit about what a computerized voice is saying.
ENOUGH WITH THIS BULLSHIT!
As great as FiOS is (and no, this isn’t running on it), one of the major flaws is that Verizon has acted like IPv6 doesn’t exist. For such a “next-gen” fiber-optic network, the only thing we’ve gotten from VZ is talks of it “coming soon”. But after 6 years, soon still hasn’t come. It looks like if I want IPv6 support on my network, I’m going to have to tunnel it. So why not just set something up to make IPv6 available on my network like it was native, but it’s all running through a tunnel.
That’s just what I did, and in a long roundabout way; here’s how it’s done.
Wow…that a trip; and I don’t mean that in a good way. It took me the better part of three weeks to get the music “set up” on my phone and finding an appropiate player. But why so long? Do I have that much music? I’ll go over all of that.
This is going to be a continually updated list of music/media players I’ve tried for Android, along with my successes, failures, and opinions of the application. My only main requirement that I cannot flex on is that it must support Ogg Opus. It is, for this reason, many of you may find your favorite “best media player ever” got a pretty negative review.
