I recently put together a page with some wedding photos and I wanted to create something a little different than the standard web photo galleries you can find everywhere. I decided to lay out the thumbnails overlapping and clustered on the page, based on their subjects.
My first thought was to mock-up the page using Inkscape then copy and paste coordinates and sizes from its interface. Fortunately Inkscape's file format is dead-simple and all I had to do was write a little script and I could generate HTML and thumbnails straight from my Inkscape layout.
My beautiful and talented wife's latest research topic has to do with
protecting private information in a database from the developers that
work on it. Her paper and source code are now available at:
Her paper was accepted to the Montreal IEEE conference this year, but unfortunately due to other obligations she will not able to present her research.
It has been an wonderful and eventful summer and I must thank my friends and family for helping me through it. I am, however looking forward to settling back into my routine and getting back into some of the projects that have been languishing. This beautiful weather makes it hard to stare at a computer for hours on end... Maybe I should move to Finland (or at least rent Night on Earth again.)
The recommended way of installing Django sites is to use mod_python. mod_python allows Apache to serve content much more quickly than CGI, but using it can create problems that are difficult to debug.
mod_python embeds the python interpreter in Apache and can share python interpreters between virtual hosts. This means that a misbehaving Python program can do much more damage than it could if it was running as a CGI script.
Mailman had me scratching my head for some time this weekend while I was trying to figure out how to change the URLs generated it its administration site. It turns out that Mailman copies configuration information into its list data at list creation time and then ignores changes to its main configuration file.
OLS topics on day two including Linux Kernel Development, EXT4, Cell Broadband Engine, Debugging Google clusters and LinuxBIOS.
All the OLS papers have now been posted. The talks were recorded this year, and the videos may be released online for free once the cost of production is covered by purchased copies. Contact Andrew Hutton if you can help by purchasing a copy.
The ninth annual OLS has begun in Ottawa's sweltering summer heat.
There are as many as three different talks and two different tutorial topics being presented in each time slot. This is a summary of the talks I attended in day 1.
