Its Friday! Still have a lot to do... 

Yeah... yeah... yeah... Taking me forever to post a new blog entry as usual. Here are my blog entry topics for today:

Mozilla and blogspot.com
I have begun to notice that Mozilla Firefox does not display correctly when viewing certain blogspot.com hosted blogs for some reason and I believe it has to due to how the web server responded in some way that catches Mozilla off guard or some reason or another. I have even noticed it happening when I try viewing my own blog and for some reason right when I republish my blog index it fixed it completely. So maybe it really has something to do with some conflict between cached web pages from blogspot and how it's web server responds to queries.

It's working for me now, my blog anyway.

Several days ago I have brought back alive an old PHP project that I did so long ago that I named phpMyChangeLog and that its main purpose was used at a job I use to have to easily maintain changelogs or project progress without much fuss. Well after while sitting on my hard drive collecting dust I have decided to bring it back alive and share it with the public, let them make additions to it, mod it to death, and hopefully make this project more complete than what it is now.

I currently have it temporarily running at http://t2n.org/~tron/php/phpmychangelog/ and working on it there whenever I need to take a break away from another project I'm working on which I will talk about that in the next topic. I've also taken the chance and registered over at SourceForge.net. I was lucky that the project name phpMyChangeLog wasn't taken yet. :)

So I now have http://sf.net/projects/phpmychangelog project page up and going with no files content as of yet. I am wanting to make phpMyChangeLog a bit more complete before I release it to the public. The changelog system written in PHP was originally going to be an add-on component to a quite large project management system written in PHP, but the company I was working for was very uninterested in that concept so I never wrote the main system for it and the changelog component was barely operational. So with that in mind I worked on it some on my spare time and got it working to the point where I could use it to dynamically alter or add new project updates to the changelog. Well I guess that is enough about phpMyChangeLog for now. :)

vbBattleShip - 86% Completed!
Yes, I am still working on this project and it takes time to even develop a simple game such as the old school board game of Battleship, except this time it will be two player only over the LAN or Internet using the LAN browser that it has built-in or grab current active games off the Internet tracker daemon I'm also working (that runs on Linux, has some Windows support which isn't recommended). I have the drawing routines completed, the ship placement and collision checking (keeps player from stacking ships on top of another) completed, and some networking routines that still need to be finished.

Overall it's going very well and I'm trying my best to have it completed by this coming week's Wendesday Night so that I'll have a grade for my final Visual Basic class project. Once I am finished with the game and all it's components I will be releasing the source code as open source under the General Public License. That's all I have to say about this project for now.

Services 'n Stuff: jabberd, ircd, and IPv6!
Oh man have I been busy for the past week or so not only working on my final VB and phpMyChangeLog projects, but also doing some networking related activities. Such as I recently got back on to the freenet6 IPv6 tunnel network so that I can have IPv6 connectivity which I sort of like playing around with, it's very neat, and got UnrealIRCd 3.2 release compiled and running over at irc.t2n.org.

I currently do not have any other services working with IPv6 yet since I haven't bothered to doing so. Also I am currently not running my jabberd server (usually at address t2n.org) because it has been running pretty unstable and I got tired of restarting it after it has closed out for some reason or another. Well T2N.org's IPv6 address is 3ffe:bc0:dda:1:0:0:0:1 and have a single ircd using it at this time. You might be wondering well how come you didn't try 6to4 IPv6 networking instead of tunneling? Well the thing is the router that keeps replying to the anycast queries has a broken link between its private IPv6 network and 6bone network, so it's basically a dead end there.

Well that's all for now and everybody have a good weekend!!!
