My Fiber Cable is Cut

On Sunday, maybe, you couldn’t access this server. It’s because the cut of my fiber cable of Nippon Telegraph and Telephone East Corporation (NTT East). It’s by my mother with stumble of it early in the morning. And I found the cut around the noon. It’s got recovered till 16:30 on that day.

The fiber cable is not only the internet cable but also the phone cable. So I had to call NTT east by my cell phone. NTT‘s operator said that they didn’t know how many minutes they would cost repeatingly several times. But they sent the repairers in current day.

We expected that it would cost few days. So I’m a bit surprised. But probably in over seas, you would cost much more days.

I installed Fedora 9 few days ago and failed to burn my irc log and so on with Brasero.

I installed Fedora 9 by network installation. I had Fedora 8. (Fedora is one of the biggest linux distribution.) Soon after that, I tried to backup my log of irc chat and so on via Brasero. And I failed. It doesn’t complete to burn DVD-R correctly when I tried to burn it from the project directly. I found the bugzilla entry of Ubuntu: Brasero requieres 4GiB on /tmp to write an iso image
You can install it without a DVD media with the way below. (I forgot to record them. So I write it by my memory.)

  • put Fedora-9-i386-DVD.iso on another server’s root of the nfs exported directory. (Now I name)
  • su –
  • mount -o loop Fedora-9-i386-DVD.iso /opt
  • cd /opt/isolinux
  • Copy vmlinuz and initrg.img to /boot
  • vim /boot/menu.lst
    (Add these lines.)

    title Fedora 9 Installer
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /vmlinuz ro root=/dev/sda1 selinux=0 reiserfs
    initrd /initrd.img

  • shutdown -r now
  • Go to the selection screen and select “Fedora 9 Installer”.

I’ve used only Fedora and Debian. So I know only those two. I love Linux for its CLI, especially bash. I found that I don’t know bash well but it let me use the commandline very conveniently.

Redesigning Kita-no-Ookami Fan Club

Kita-no-Ookami Fan Club is a website of conservative opinions. Its essays are written by Mr. Kita-no-Ookami, a web controversialist. And I administrate the website with his essays under his permission.

I have been redesigning it for a couple of weeks and I publish the new design by halves. So I updated more frequently than usual since I could find many to correct with redesigning.

The biggest change of the redesign is many HTML files to be converted to XHTML files. And I made his quotations much more recognizable by blockquote tags. I hope that it’s not corruption but alternation of an editor, although he would be surprised of the new design if he saw.

I updated also my own links page by that operation. I deleted the dead links of the Snake Board (It’s a nick name.), the Association for the Rescue of Japanese Kidnapped by North Korea in Fukuoka.
