Haitus followed by wordpress update misery

I crawl under a rock for a few months and my penance is a miserable wordpress upgrade when I return. TL;DR: there’s a bug in Debian Jessie vsftpd that breaks the wordpress upgrade. Thankfully someone filed a bug and moving forward to the vsftp version (3.0.3) is the fix.

I had to do one more thing though: this newer version of vsftpd disables write access for ALL accounts, even authorized accounts. No big deal, just find the write_enable variable in the vsftpd.conf file, uncomment it, and set it to YES. That only took me an hour to figure out :/

But at least now my WP install is up to date, I’m out from under my rock and I can get back to my blogging routine.

change jar rolled

Took me about 4 hour to roll all of this change up. Probably not worth the time but it was strangely comforting performing a repetitive manual task for a while. Anyways it’s about $470 if I include a few dollar and 50 cent coins that were mixed in. Not bad for an old pickle jar full of change.

Normally I’d be scheming about the cool stuff I’d buy with my new found riches but they’re already destined to help pay off some new motorcycle parts. Oh yeah, motorcycle parts. I’ll up some photos and the like when they come in and I get the time to break out the wrenches.

change jar

I’ve been a slacker this past month and haven’t posted much technical stuff. Once class ended and work picked up for the summer I pretty much fell off the map. I’m working on a post now to describe the work I did over this past semester and hopefully where it will go over these next few months.

But for now I’m falling back on some filler. That’s right, completely useless information follows: my change jar is full!

Now it’s time to roll it up. Any guesses on how much $$ is in there? There’s lots of quarters so I’m guessing it’s gonna be around $400.
