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.
Unfortunately we don’t seem to have a lot of such devices ourselves to test with, and they all behave differently, so we haven’t really had the resources to seriously work on testing tweaks for better phone/handheld support.
My crappy little phone just has some kind of WAP browser, I think, which I’ve never really been able to get to do anything productive. For kicks I took a peek to see if Opera Mini would run on my phone, since I *think* it has some kind of Java… alas, once I finally got connected to the site it claimed my phone isn’t supported.
Opera Mini actually handles Wikipedia pretty decently. The really cool thing is that since the client side is Java, they have an applet version so you can test the actual Opera Mini rendering in any desktop web browser. I LOVE YOU OPERA! YOU MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO TEST MY WEB SITE IN YOUR PRODUCT!!!! IIII LLLLLOOOOVVEEE YYOOOUUUUU!!!!!!!ONE
Of course currently our fundraising drive notice covers the entire screen, but… hey… ;)
Update 2007-01-07: I’m collecting links to mobile testing resources at [[mw:Mobile browser testing]].
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.
