WP-BlackCheck 2.8.0 – Beta 1

Quite some time passed, since I really looked into the code for ironing out bugs and added features, but honestly – there is no need to do much, as the plugin works pretty smooth. But nevertheless I did some changes to get some more usability out of my plugin.

The changes are as follows:

  • Drop the Stats page – we got a dashboard widget to do that now
  • Drop the ‘show on dashboard’ stuff as it’s outdated since ages
  • A couple of bugfixes and improvements
  • Style fixes to have colored buttons
  • Removal of the CommentHash stuff as it was broken by design
  • You may send spam to the spam queue now or discard it (it’s your choice) *
  • Improved some spam logic stuff to kick in more effective in the end

*) Work in progress

As the current work is pretty beta, I will not publish it at WordPress.org. Instead you may get it directly from me in exchange for some feedback as I need some more testing people. A comment or contact request and you’re welcome to test.

OwnCloud 8.0.3 and some SQL problem

Today my OwnCloud was due to an update to 8.0.3; As I did so, an SQL error hailed me:

Aktualisiere ownCloud auf Version 8.0.3. Dies könnte eine Weile dauern.
An exception occurred while executing ‘ DELETE FROM `oc_lucene_status` WHERE `fileid` IN ( SELECT `fileid` FROM ( SELECT `fileid` FROM `oc_lucene_status` GROUP BY `fileid` HAVING count(`fileid`) > 1 ) AS `mysqlerr1093hack` )’: SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 1665 Cannot execute statement: impossible to write to binary log since BINLOG_FORMAT = STATEMENT and at least one table uses a storage engine limited to row-based logging. InnoDB is limited to row-logging when transaction isolation level is READ COMMITTED or READ UNCOMMITTED.
The update was unsuccessful. Please report this issue to the ownCloud community.

An Update for the OnePlus One

By now an update to my beloved OnePlus One phone is rolling out and so do a few fixes and some notable changes and a sense of Bloatware: SwiftKey and MaxxAudio. Is this the beginning of the end of a slick and bloatware free rom?

Just for the record: I do not have anything against Swiftkey or Waves. It is the way Cyanogen Inc. works against their initial plan of creating an easy to use and bloatware free rom back then when they were just cyanogenmod.

Java 8 JVM crash on Linux?

Those days I found another brilliant example of non working java stuff. In fact it was an ubuntu laptop running the most recent jre from sun stating:

The program 'java' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'RenderBadPicture (invalid Picture parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 251 error_code 143 request_code 139 minor_code 6)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

For my part I could narrow things down to swing, the UI stuff which can be worked around using a few parameters:

java -jar -Dswing.systemlaf=javax.swing.plaf.nimbus.NimbusLookAndFeel minecraft.jar
