This update marks the re-release of Matomo Analyics, which got renamed Matomo Tracker and Tracker for Matomo. The version number has been bumped up to 1.2 to indicate the name change. No features have been added or changed. The plugin works just as great as before.Read more »
With the crazy flu going rampant all over the world it makes sense to stay home. Breathe heavily towards people you don’t like and generally stop talking to people you do like. While that sounds counter intuitive, it makes sense if you think about it for a second.
What also makes sense is to not only wash your hands but also the stuff you touch. Most people just advise you to wash your hands, stop touching your face and whatnot. But so far I’ve not seen anybody recommend that you clean the things your hands touch. Maybe not super important, but I think it is important in general.Read more »
In January last year I bought a new MacBook Pro from Apple. I got a decent deal on it and with the new and improved butterfly keyboard I hoped it would be good. I choose the upgraded video card, too. My intention was that this would be my laptop for the next few years.Read more »
I wrote a review after 3 months with some minor gripes but overall the laptop was great. I even liked that stupid keyboard…
Today I woke up to 22 emails that my website was offline-online-offline and so on. Turns out some users are once again abusing AdRotate Geo by sending millions of requests to my API.
AdRotate Geo serves around 3 million requests per day. And scales pretty well for small to medium sites. Currently there are a couple of hundred users subscribed to AdRotate Geo. But getting upwards of 40 million requests per hour is a bit too much for my servers.
So, DDoS then, again… But they’re all real AdRotate Pro users as far as I can see. Valid authentification keys and api access… After some digging it turns out that it was AdRotate Geo being hammered with traffic from a bunch of AdRotate Pro users sites. Millions of requests per site? Come on. That’s not real traffic. Can’t be… Or is it.Read more »
Over the last few weeks I’ve been travelling around the Philippines again. Currently I’m on Luzon, near Naga city. We’re driving our motorcycles all over the place. We originally planned to go via Masbate Island to reach Cebu Island.
However, news of Mount Mayon and it’s “imminent and violent eruptions” kept coming in. So we decided to change course for this probably once in a lifetime experience. We drove to Legaspi City via the up-wind route, avoiding the major ash and dust clouds spewing to the east.
The city is right next to the volcano, just outside the actual danger zone which was evacuated several weeks ago. This basically meant we had a good view of the goings on.Read more »
Storm Urduja was a bad one, half the province got flooded apparently. And as usual the Philippines was wholly unprepared or simply didn’t care too much. People sought higher grounds until the floods subsided. Or were just wandering around trying to go about their day.
Around the Baco area, near Calapan City, a bunch of rivers flooded most farmlands, towns and everything in between. Some areas were more than waist deep. Luckily not over the road, which was only covered in about 30cm deep water at the worst point.Read more »
Still, the whole of Baco town was flooded in some places with a strong current.
