Traveling light

No comments
I have been writing some web pages on the theme of "traveling light".

I have been hiking in the bushland near Perth, Western Australia, camping in a tent, and having fun with trying to make my backpack as light as possible.

So far I have only uploaded one page, on the electrical and electronic requirements:

http://bkhome.org/light/electric.htm

...consider that to be the first draft of that page.


I am retired

No comments
I announced earlier in this blog that I am retired from Puppy Linux development, however I am still receiving Puppy-related questions via the Contact Me link at top of this blog.

This is happening because some people are not aware of my retired status.

Please direct all questions to the Puppy Linux Forum:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/

...you will find there, many guys actively developing Puppy.

Regarding Quirky, I might be tempted to do another one, as there were some things that I intended to do but didn't. Maybe a "Christmas Special"?

Note, I am using the rather old Raring Puppy, version 5.6.90, every day on my laptop. Not for any particular reason, it just runs nice.


Build system for Quirky

No comments
For anyone who is interested, here is the build system for Quirky:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/project/

This is forked from Woof, with quite a few changes. For example, no PUPMODEs. I also made various refinements that are not in Woof, such as eliminatiing the multi-arch symlinks (ex linking /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu to /usr/lib), which could be ported to woof-CE if desired.

There are some docs in this blog about these changes.

Fix for apostrophe character

12Comments
Christina (forum member efiabruni) is the author of pe_pplog, which I use for the blog that you are now reading.

There was a bug discovered recently. If the apostrophe character (') was used in comment titles, the comment was corrupted.

Efiabruni posted a fix:
https://github.com/efiabruni/pe_pplog/commits/comment_registration

...the apostrophe fix is in files pe_pplog.pl and blog/sub.pl, and is actually found in both of the patches:
blog/sub.pl: subroutine to replace a ' with &apos
pe_pplog.pl: Disabled bbcode on comments for security reasons

The latter patch also disables bbcode on comments, however I was uncertain about that and did not implement it.
I will need more feedback as to what the security risk actually is.
