Kaikki Cthulhu-kortit osa 2.

Tasan vuosi sitten, joku ystävällinen sielu jakoi skannattuja versioita kaikista Cthulhu CCG-korteista. Linkki ei näköjään enää toimi, mutta skannattuja kortteja löytyy toki muualtakin. Cthulhu CCG:n pakanrakennusohjelman sivuilta löytyy mukavasti suurin osa korteista skannattuina, joten jos tekee mieli, niin sitä kautta niitä pääse pällistelemään. Itse pakanrakennusohjelma on Windowssille tehty, mutta toimii hyvin myös Winen kautta Linuxilla. Ohjelman avulla saa tietenkin väsättyä helposti tasapainoisia pakkoja.

Hastur on muuten aika paha jätkä, vaikka maksaakin runsaasti:

A sane way to delete comments (Kukkaisvoima version 7)

Deleting comments have been little hard with Kukkaisvoima. Version 7 fixes this problem intruducing admin interface to delete comments. When you are viewing some specific blog entry, you get Admin heading on the sidebar. Clicking it will append ?admin to the url and show delete comment link beside comment. Clicking delete comment will ask password (new setting variable for version 7) and delete comment if the password is correct. Deleting comment will erase it permanently.

Second improvent in version 7 is spam question. Commenting blog entry will now ask question which will hopefully reduce spam.

Kukkaisvoima 7 got also some "refactoring" and new setting variables:

  • nospamanswer = '5' (Answer to spam question)
  • passwd = 'password' (password for deleting comments)

Since kukkaisvoima_settings.py contains now somewhat sensitive information you should block all access to it from public web. For example I have the following settings on my .htaccess file:

<files kukkaisvoima_settings.py>
 order allow,deny
 deny from all
</files>

If the passwd value is set to 'password' comments cannot be deleted from web interface. This is for those, who for some reason cannot hide the kukkaisvoima_settings.py and still want to use Kukkaisvoima.

Version 7 intrudes also some new language variables

  • l_nospam_question = 'What\'s 2 + 3?'
  • l_delete_comment = 'Delete comment'
  • l_passwd = 'Admin password'
  • l_admin = 'Admin'
  • l_admin_comments = 'Manage comments'
  • l_do_you_delete = 'Your about to delete comment this, are you sure you want to that?'

Download version 7 here.

CJC, Jabber-ohjelma terminaaliin

Löytyi Telepaattille oiva kilpaila CJC-Jabber-ohjelmasta. SVN-Reposta ladattu ohjelma ei lähtenyt kunnolla käyntiin, koska palvelimelle yhdistäminen ei näyttänyt onnistuvan. Kuvakaappausten perusteella on kuitenkin ihan pätevän näköinen. Tekijä mainostaa, että olisi Irssin ja BitchX:n tyylinen, toivottavasti. MUC-kuvan perusteella huoneessa olevia käyttäjiä ei näy ruudulla. Se on hieman turhauttavaa. Täytyy jonkun ajan päästä testata uudestaa jos siitä löytyisi silloin toimiva versio.

Fixing the spam problem

I made two improvements to Kukkaisvoima today. First fixed the spam problem with spam question handling (borrowed the idea from Quo Vadis? :D). The second fix is interface to delete comments from blog. I will test these features for a week or so, before releasing next version of Kukkaisvoima.

Comments on the sidebar feature will be pushed to version eight, since it will somewhat change the comment Class and break the pickled comments. I will try to do some simple comment converter, so that old comments can be preserved

First spam messages

Today first spam arrived to this blog. It sure shows that Kukkaisvoima is vulnarable to spam. It seems that every entry got its own spam message. Nice to know that this specific url on whole net is finally reached some critical mass that makes this blog worth of spamming :D I think version seven with spam question just got relevant. I'll try also to finish some other features which I started before releasing it (comments on sidebar and small script to manage comments), so that it would be worth the upgrade hassle.

Edit: Since it seems that more spam is coming, I will temporary close comments on this blog until I will get the question fix ready.
