Yeah I know, two news posts with a day’s timespan. I guess miracles do happen ;-)
Got some stuff to put out that really shouldn’t wait, they are that worthy of being on the front page. And I also just happen to have the time. Another rare event. Anyways… first off, I found a codefix for that annoying ‘php_sessions is full’ bug that would crop up from time to time. When that table was created, the row size was set too low, and over time as more people visit certain aspects of my site, like the photo album (which is getting a lot more useage of late) that table would reach capacity and cause anything phpBB-related to quit working until that table was flushed out. I just added some code to flush that table automatically, and if it’s unable to do so, it dynamically increase the table’s row size. Neat, eh? :-P Hope it works, cuz I don’t have the time to always come back here and fix things like before. Oh yeah… Kelly, if you’re reading this, heheh – ‘computer geeks’ rejoice ;-)
OK, the ‘interesting read’ part. Get this… my Dad sent me this rather large email about this one individuals view on why exactly we happen to be here in Iraq and abroad doing what we’re (we being the US armed forces) doing and for what reasons and so forth. It’s also somewhat of a history lesson… once you wade thru that, you start to get to the meat of it all. It took me awhile to decide whether I was going to support this lil diatribe or verbally shred it. I’m thinking the latter ;-) Here’s an example as to why… this is a small quote from that email – ‘Failing this, they also laid plans to build a political campaign inside the country, with the War in Iraq as a plebiscite, using a little known politician as the thrust point–Howard Dean’
Um… yeah. Just what the fuck is that crap all about? You’re gonna have to read the entire message to see what I am getting at, but basically it’s this – we got a guy here who 1) thinks he knows the ‘big picture’ and 2) thinks he knows exactly what will happen if we go down this path or that path and 3) somehow thinks that some key Democrats are conciously helping the leaders of this so-called ‘Wahhabiism’ that’s taking place. I’m just wondering what this author’s creditials are, if any, and how he fucking knows so much about what’s going on over here and why things are happening the way they are.
If ya couldn’t guess already (hah) my take is that the author is full of shit on a lot of points… almost to the point of being paranoid. I invite all of you to read it (it’s posted on the messageboard under the ‘news postings’ link for those of ya not in the know) and make your own conclusions and comments.
That’s all I got for now I suppose. Ah, before I forget – I heard that pretty much all of the wives/girlfreinds of the soldiers from my platoon have ‘discovered’ the photo album here, so if ya happen to fall under that category – welcome! Spread the word to friends and family, so they can see what their loved ones are up to… heh ;-P If ya got any picture requests, lemme know and I’ll see what I can do.
See ya gang.
