Some Funky Blog and Database Errors
I just wanted to make a little blog post that I have been working on the blog this lovely Sunday morning. Raleigh is asleep so I figured I could get some web tasks done. So some of you may have noticed that when you submit a comment you get a totally funky database error that makes no sense to anyone.
The error looked something like this.
“WordPress database error: [Table ‘tristanpipo.wp_post2cat’ doesn’t exist]
SELECT cat_ID AS ID, MAX(post_modified) AS last_mod FROM `wp_posts` p LEFT JOIN `wp_post2cat` pc ON p.ID = pc.post_id LEFT JOIN `wp_categories` c ON pc.category_id = c.cat_ID WHERE post_status = 'publish' GROUP BY cat_ID"
So I took the time and found that a rogue plugin on the site was causing the error. A few searches on the comment authors support forum found the answer and the issue appears to have been solved from my end.
I hope all is well on your side of the earth and I must admit having my blog back in working order is nice. Cheers!
The Geek Test
The Nerd Handbook
Being a citizen of the world and wanting to better understand things I find myself reading frequently. I don’t really go for many books. If someone recommends a book I find it 100x easier to look it up on audible and add it to my list and when I get some more credits it downloads and I listen to it. Since I spend most of my day looking at computer screens, walking, or laying down I really don’t have the time to sit down and pick up a book. Grabbing the iPod and jamming earbuds in my ear seems like a better process to me.
While on the internet I read tons of blogs. I think I subscribe to 55 or so and check a few others via other means. Since blogs link to other blogs and so forth I can find myself in a giant blog nest of articles. But back to the point. I found the above article via a Stumble I made today. Normally I skim quickly to get an overall idea of what things are about see if there is a general point and move along.
But this link was the Nerd Handbook it goes into some depth about dealing with the Nerds in your life and how they work. I found myself nodding along. It was a good read so if you got some time I suggest you check it out.
But I do have one thing to add. If you ask me why it’s slow when you click on something. I have ideas that pop in my head but I really don’t care. Usually a google search on your end would resolve the issue as it does for me 99% of the time. I guess it really depends on who asks me depends on my urge to help you.
A Fool in Love
First a Random Picture I enjoyed
I get a great deal of IM’s and e-mails with people just asking how I am doing since I haven’t really taken the time to write anything worthwhile. It’s not that I forget about my blog but it’s just I find myself being tired and not really thinking of anything to update it with. Things happen but it’s just like it takes time to come up with something.
Like that is one reason I don’t like myspace it takes to much time. I went through and purged the friends list down to 110. I pretty much cleaned up the profile and so forth. The thing I don’t like about it to find out what anyone is doing I have to go clicking through profiles filled with shit to see that Oh you got a new kitty cat. Whatever cats are annoying. They make me sneeze and my tolerance for them is usually on the low end. But if I am taking pills I can deal with them.
Me and Raleigh have been doing incredibly well. We are around the 5 month mark and I am constantly amazed that I found someone that I can connect with. I really dig the couple thing. It’s nice having someone to bounce ideas off and just someone you can truly be yourself with.
We went as matching penguins for Halloween. Since Raleigh has a camera there seem to be a great deal of pictures being taken. My only complaint about the amazing costumes my mom made was that they forced you to walk like a penguin and going from my long strides to short ones put a cramp on my style.
The work holiday party is coming up at the end of the month. Went to the Men’s Warehouse picked up a suit and the whole deal. I am not really a fan of spending money at all and that was a bit of a sticker shock when that total came up. But I will be looking rather sharp and that should be a great deal of fun.
So other then work and just doing my normal routine.
Monday – Boys Night
Tuesday – Chill / Laundry Night
Wednesday- Take Mom to Dinner Keep her Company Night?
Thursday – Clean House / Chill
Friday – Picking up Raleigh and Whatever Night
Not much else going on. Hope everything is well with everyone else.
Super Mario Galaxy
So Super Mario Galaxy was unleashed upon the world yesterday. There were some mixed things that I heard about the release date. Most smaller shops were getting it today (Tuesday) where Wal-Mart had it yesterday on the 12th. Not being a fan of being jerked around I went to Wal-Mart and picked it up. Buying a video game at Wal-Mart is interesting since you have to hunt somebody down to unlock their glass case to get you the game.
But I had been waiting for this game for way to long. I picked up a Wii on Launch day last year. That was an interesting process where I camped out in front of a Target from 8:30pm until 7am. All my friends were saying they were going to bring me coffee and food so I didn’t really pack anything but my DS expecting Starbucks or something to arrive. But most people didn’t seem to grasp the concept of dates and that turned out to a very cranky Tristan. But there haven’t really been any killer Wii games. I have Wii Sports, Zelda: Twilight Princess and Warioware. Zelda is good. I should probably sit down and beat the game. So getting a Mario Game would finally be the Killer App to make the Wii playable other then Virtual Console Titles.
This game I can totally see me and Raleigh playing some afternoon since she can be involved as much or as little as she would like. She can use the second Wii-mote to collect stars force me to jump to my death. Which I see her doing a great deal of that ;-). She can also shoot enemies and so forth. It kinda matches the Elebits side of things in that regard.
But gameplay is spot on everything I would expect from a new mario pushing the envelope and making an all around fun game to play. I am a child of the Mario era. I didn’t have a Nintendo growing up I was an Atari kinda guy until I got a SNES when I was in the 4th grade.
So if you have a Wii I totally recommend Mario Galaxy. You will not be disappointed. The whole perspective and gameplay is totally a new experience since Gravity is not a major part of the game. You can spin around the planets and it is just a riot. Me and Nick were playing it last night and we found it to be a little trippy while tired and spinning around the world.
I give Galaxy a 9.9/10 the .1 off is for the camera angle can get a little odd at times.
Guitar Hero 3 – Legends of Rock
I’ve played through Easy and have 2 songs left on Medium. I have ventured into Hard and not ready for that yet.
But I must say this game is a ton of fun to play I would recommend dropping the $90 or $100 depending on what console you are running.
My favorite song in the game is Eric Johnson – Cliffs of Dover
Here is some YouTube Action of the song.
