I have updated ldir (1.7.7), nothing major though it’s just an update to the URL where it checks for the latest version number. It’s now stored in a central place where other software I have developed checks it’s version.

Over the christmas period, I am planning on finalising the Helpdesk system Wonderful Help 2 and releasing it for public use; as well as looking at the ldir code to see how it can be improved as it’s a long time since it has had any major work developed for it.

The media library program is developing slowly with more features being planned. There are some optimisation issues at the moment but these will be addressed prior to release.

Debian Squeeze and Wine 1.3

Download the .debs for Mepis 8 from this repo; remember to download wine-1.3. and wine-dev-1.3…

also it’s a good idea to grab winetricks while you’re at it, the newest version off the site should work. Just follow the instructions.


Changed the Repo from “Testing” to “Stable” as the testing repo was only providing the latest wine.


New Project in Development

Written by

So, I needed a list of my media which looked sexier than just a text list so I’ve started work on Media Library.

It currently only displays my movies and integrates minimally with Couch Potato but TV support is coming soon and also download support (if the detected IP is internal).

It scrapes info from IMDB, TMDB and TVDB. It also caches a local copy of the poster/cover. It’s going to be developed more over the next few months.

Slow Work…

I’ve now started proper work on my MSc dissertation which is an “Automatic Error Reporting System” aimed at edn devices i.e. Printers.


Also I thought this was interesting

Today, unfortunately, the very pillars on which Wikipedia has been built – neutrality, freedom, and verifiability of its contents – are likely to be heavily compromised by paragraph 29 of a law proposal, also known as “DDL intercettazioni” (Wiretapping Act).

This proposal, which the Italian Parliament is currently debating, provides, among other things, a requirement to all websites to publish, within 48 hours of the request and without any comment, a correction of any content that the applicant deems detrimental to his/her image.

Unfortunately, the law does not require an evaluation of the claim by an impartial third judge – the opinion of the person allegedly injured is all that is required, in order to impose such correction to any website.
Hence, anyone who feels offended by any content published on a blog, an online newspaper and, most likely, even on Wikipedia can directly request the removal of such contents and its permanent replacement with a “corrected” version, aimed to contradict and disprove the allegedly harmful contents, regardless of the truthfulness of the information deemed as offensive, and its sources
which probably ends up being nothing but a bit worrying.


There hasn’t been any ldir developments either.

Thats all, I’ll attempt topost on here developments with my MSc Project/Dissertation
