Southern California Edison lets you shut off your service online; beats waiting on hold but it seems … a little off.
For the record, this is the most awful software upgrade procedure I’ve experienced.
- The previous versions of various Apple pro media apps such as Motion don’t run at all on newer, Intel-based machines. BOO!
- The various individual products have been discontinued in favor of the Final Cut Studio bundle which includes a bunch of them. You can no longer get just one. So to run your old copy of Motion on your new MacBook, you have to upgrade to the entire bundle… BOO!
- …which they offer a huge cross-grade discount on! YAY!
- To get your new installation media, you have to mail in your original installation DVD… which will naturally get lost in the mail. BOO!
The good news is, if you have enough documentation you can talk them into replacing your lost media so you can send in for the upgrade again.
Gandalf, I… never thought of you this way before…
Trying to set up Windows Server 2003 (trial download) to confirm & fix bug 3000 for MediaWiki running under IIS.
[[Wikipedia:Apricot|Apricots]]: YUMMMMMMM! Easy to slice in half and remove the pit, and verrrry delicious. Dried apricots are also nice and last longer in the cupboard.
[[Wikipedia:Peach|Peaches]]: Similar to its smaller cousin the apricot, but IMHO they’re harder to work with. The pitting vs deliciousness ratio is unfavorable.
[[Wikipedia:Blueberry|Blueberries]]: Pretty awesome when you pick them yourself in the forest. Prepackaged, though, I find them kinda… boring and tasteless. Maybe I just got boring mass-produced Chilean blueberries, though.
[[Wikipedia:Blackberry|Blackberries]]: Upside: yum! Downside: full of little crunchy seeds.
1.9.0 final in a day or so, after a few more chances for people to test last-minute regressions.
After 3 hours of poking at samples and documentation and sleep deprivation, I now have a package containing… a changelog file.
(Update: got it working eventually, after scrapping all the files and rebuilding them with dh_make.)
I tossed together a silly WordPress plugin to special-case links into [[leuksman|my wiki pages]] such as my [[gimp mac helper]] tools, as well as to MediaWiki’s bug tracker (eg, bug 1) and SVN repository (r12345 was nice).

Only useful if you’re me at the moment, but maybe I’ll generalize it for fun.
