Managing Your Web Site With Mercurial


The Mercurial source control system for (nearly) every one of my free software projects. Recently, I began using it to manage all of my web sites. If you are like me, you likely have a web server and SQL server of some sort running on your desktop, permitting you to work locally.

I make many frequent changes to my sites. Sometimes things don't go so well for various reasons. I may need to roll back changes that I made to something, get my site mirrored in a hurry if its getting an abnormal amount of visits, change hosts in a hurry, lots of other things. Mercurial helps with everything.

Now I can work locally and just 'hg push' my changes to my server, make changes on the server and easily 'hg pull' them to my local copy, or merge if I've modified the same files in both places. I can quickly grab a whole copy of my web site to setup a mirror on many other systems, or even quickly produce patches to send upstream to free software projects (like Wordpress, phpbb, etc).

An Epic Fail In Webmastering


The short version is, my site has been down for over two weeks and it took me a week and a half to even notice it. That, of course describes fail number one and fail number two, but there’s plenty more fail where that came from!

It all began when I started shifting around some of my own accounts in order to free up some IP addresses. Some of the domains had expired, some did not need their own IP and then there was this site, that had its own IP and I could not figure out why. So, I moved it to the main system IP, went to bed and forgot all about it.

What I completely forgot was that I had a 4 1/2 year old trial SSL certificate installed, and the stupid dolt that lives on my server (we’ll just say its name rhymes with zeb ghost scavenger) happily let me move the site to the main shared IP, despite the server name vhost also using it.

Goofing Off In Epoch Proportions


Re-writing one of my tools that will be included with my extended ext3cow tool set, something to help translate epoch (UNIX stamps) to standard calendar dates. The tool also settles races, telling you which file in a group has the latest modification date.

For those of you who don’t know about the UNIX epoch, its simply the number of seconds that have lapsed since January 1, 1970. Despite the difficulty of determining this and plotting accurate time lapses almost 40 years ago and to a period where cell phones and mobile broadband didn’t exist yet, I was convinced of trying it.

Why I Use My Own DNS Resolvers


For those of you who do care, but don’t know, DNS is what translate domain names into IP addresses and vice versa. If you type ‘’ in your browser, a DNS server (somewhere) is going to need to translate ‘’ into an IP address so that a socket connection can be established.

The reverse of that (reverse DNS) translates an IP address into a meaningful name. For instance, ‘’ translates to, yet a direct lookup for the reverse (PTR) entry for that same IP translates to ’’ which is the name of the computer that hosts ‘’.

Avoiding ‘scope creep’


Anyone who has worked as a consultant knows the dreaded phrase ‘scope creep’, a euphemism employed to describe a situation where a customer is (usually) attempting to get services for free.

Scope creep can be rather difficult to spot, usually a consultant does not realize the amount of services that they’ve provided for free until the end of the job when they divide the amount they were paid by the number of hours that they worked. When your time is your product, you must be careful to not give it away.
