Not the blog, but myself
– in two stages in the next two weeks, mostly due to lack of space. So it will be even more quiet in this blog for a while.
(And I’m using the opportunity for another photo for Projekt 52, specifically “DIY”, one of June’s topics. Though I don’t think the penguin will be much help filling all these boxes…)
First, here’s “1999” by Prince because this is the 1999th post in my blog (including many German-only posts, that is):
But don’t worry, “two thousand zero zero, party over” won’t apply to my blog.
And like the first song where I use a date for something else, I’m not using the second song to refer to the mentioned year (in more than one century, in this case) – but in this case to the age I’ve reached today: “’39” by Queen in a 1979 live version:
The first post in my blog – just a “hello world” – is from 6 Sep 2006 9:05:43am, hence my blog is now – on 10:43:28pm – exactly 1234.56789 days old. Just thought I’d mention it, there’s no big celebration.
What, you do want a little more? Alright, here’s a poem generated with Poetron in German, then translated by Google (plus one little correction) and some virtual champagne:
Blogging the blogs

A little internal note: A few hours ago, I activated WP Super Cache, a plugin that caches the generated pages for some time – for the general audience even as pure HTML files so not even the PHP engine needs to start – thus reducing server load. Basically, you should notice no difference except that those pages that were accessed in the recent past are faster. Those who have written a comment (and got a cookie from that) won’t be served the “super cache” HTML.
The display of the recent comments in the sidebar may be not always up to date for non-commenters on cached pages, but I guess that’s not that much of a problem.
Moreover, DB Cache Reloaded has been running for the past few days, caching single database queries – which has the advantage that accessing other pages that have not been accessed recently also profit from this cache. However I noticed that the first access to admin pages and the first writing of a comment take a relatively long time – probably because DBCR then scans and flushes the numerous old cache files; seems this garbage collection isn’t that great yet…
Well, if you notice something wrong, please tell me.
