I have a machine at home running Linux Mint 16 (Petra) that I decided to do an upgrade to 17 (Qiana), and what is it about Ubuntu and its derivatives that make doing an upgrade so difficult?! I’ve had Ubuntu itself break during upgrades before, and decided to quit using Ubuntu partially as a result. But I’ve had pretty good luck with Mint in the past, and, well, not so much any more. The networking is completely broken now. Not just wireless, but wired as well. ifconfig shows no network adapters other than loopback.
To be fair, I haven’t had much of a chance to investigate to see if it’s something incredibly simple, but if stuff like this keeps happening, I’m going back to a monolithic kernel and building everything from source 😉
So, I’ve decided to redesign the website again. This time, I don’t plan on removing any content, though I may shuffle it around a bit since I’ve enabled multi-site. Maybe do some topic-specific subdomains (ie, maybe a ghosts.nitemarecafe.com for the Ghosts of Ohio stuff, abuse.nitemarecafe.com for the Abuse of Authority stuff, etc). I might move the general blog to blog.nitemarecafe.com as well, but I’m not certain. Anyone have any thoughts? Anyone want their own subdomain to blog whatever they want? 😉
OK people! Listen up! Before you bother asking, no, I will NOT remove your LGPedia entry, and there are multiple reasons:
I do not run the official version of LGpedia, but simply an unofficial mirror of it. Miles Beckett keeps promising to put the original back online. Removing info from a mirror does not remove it from the original. Also, removing your information revises history, which I am 100% against. Finally, removing the link does not remove it from Google’s cache or archive.org.
What I will be happy to do for you, though, is add the URL about you to robots.txt so that Google will drop the page from search results, and also remove it from Google’s cache and archive.org’s Wayback Machine. That is most likely what you’re concerned about anyhow, correct? That a prospective employer will google you and not hire you based on the result found in LGpedia?
To do this, please send me a polite email (wintermute AT nitemarecafe DOT com) requesting that I add your entry to robots.txt, and please include the URL in question in the email so that I can easily locate you. Failure to do so may result in laziness on my part 😉
So, I’ve enabled multi-site on Nitemare Cafe, so I can quickly develop additional subdomains using WordPress without installing a new version for each subdomain. If anyone wants a blog of whatever.nitemarecafe.com, let me know.
