Installing uploadprogress on Debian Lenny

If you are running Drupal on Debian 5.0 Lenny then there is a good chance that you have notice the following status warning on your Drupal install.

Your server is capable of displaying file upload progress, but does not have the required libraries. It is recommended to install the PECL uploadprogress library (preferred) or to install APC.

Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid LAMP server running php 5.2 and 5.3

Note: I could not get 5.2 and 5.3 running at the same time. I could only get them both installed so where I could quickly enable one or the other.  I had to use a2enmod php5 and a2dismod php5 to turn PHP 5.2 on and off because PHP 5.3 would also take priority otherwise.

Setup 'git pull' to work without specifying a branch

I have received the following error message several times now on different projects from using 'git pull'.

Annoying warning message in Debian Lenny: perl: warning: Setting locale failed.

Everytime I setup a Debian server and install some software using apt-get I will get an error message like this:

SEA Paddle NYC - Website update

Kraus Creative wanted to update the previous SEA Paddle NYC website so that the client could more easily maintain the site. Kraus Creative already had a design ready so only the implementation of the design was needed. Jacob implemented the Drupal theme for SEA Paddle NYC brilliantly and all that was left to do was to implement the new features. The new features included a slideshow on the front page, a sponsor carousel on the front page, an area to embed Flickr sets, an area to embed Youtube videos and a blog / news area.

DRT Videos - Personal Video Game Walkthroughs Website

DRT Videos is a person project of mine. I have always enjoyed playing video games and have fond memories of my brothers watching me play as I would adventure through new virtual worlds. DRT Videos is a website where others can watch games that I have played. DRT Videos is also a website to link to other video game videos that others have made. It would be impossible to play and record all the video games I am interested in, so I will link to others who have created high quality videos of video games as well.

Remove annoying terminal beep in Ubuntu

Most probably know this but I didn't. To remove the annoying terminal beep in Ubuntu 10.04 go to (In the terminal window):

Edit -> Profiles...
Edit the Default Profile
Uncheck the "Terminal bell"
Click the Close button

That was easy. Only needed to know where to look. And now no longer annoying beeps when I press the TAB button to get directory listings. Great!

DevNullSMTP configuration in Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.04

If you have ever wanted to see what emails were being sent from your Ubuntu computer but did not want the emails to actually be sent then you are probably looking for a type of fake mail program. The one that I like is DevNullSMTP. The only problem is that I could not get it to work without a installing sendmail and then disabling the deamon. These were the steps that I had to do.

Install sendmail-bin "sudo apt-get install sendmail-bin"
Turn off deamon using "sudo update-rc.d -f sendmail remove"
Reboot computer

Wireless trouble in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid with Ralink RT2860 chipset

Once again I am having trouble with the Ralink RT2860 chipset wireless card under Ubuntu. I have had an issue with this NIC since 9.04! The problem has been that the card would not connect to wireless networks and would keep asking for a password even though it had already been entered. The fix for 9.04 and 9.10, for me, is described in this forum post.

New website for established business

Moncure Plywood wanted to establish a web presence where they could show off their products and post recent news. For my part I setup a WYSIWYG for easy editing of site content and handled all hosting issues. The design was done by Jacob Parrish.
