2011-05-30 @ 21:56: Problems with Google’s DNS News

For appr. two days now Google seems to have problems resolving the IP of the Facebook server where the profile pictures are hosted. This results in a massive slowdown, loss of connection, timeouts etc. on every Facebook page that accesses this server.

To fix this append this line to your hosts file:
72.246.43.48 profile.ak.fbcdn.net

This will circumvent your DNS servers and make your computer access Facebook’s profile picture server directly.

However, since this is likely a temporary problem (at least for me it occurs from 6pm GMT til next day’s noon) I didn’t include it in my secure hosts file, yet.

The layout of the downloads section has been updated in order to gain more readability and clarity. Also I did some minor enhancements and bug fixing to the site (mostly cosmetic stuff).

In order to save some bytes I repacked everything under Downloads as rar-files instead of zip. That just saved about 100kb. Yes, I am a nerd!

2010-12-09 @ 22:43: Found a naughty bug… News

…which drove me crazy. I accidentally removed the column-id which messed up everything. I mean everything. Firefox and IE just gave me a blank page with absolutely nothing on it and Opera 11 beta gave me a weird error-message which didn’t help me at all. Searching for a solution took me about three fucking hours until I noticed that the only fault was that missing column-id. Damn!!! 😡

Hopefully I won’t break it that soon again. :mrgreen:

I quickly set this up to easily post some news and stuff I’m working on. At the moment I don’t know if I’ll ever use it, however, it’s up and working. Some minor stuff has to be done, but nothing serious.
