Calling all Lego fanatics...

By Q-Bert - Posted on 03 April 2012

You know who you are...

I have a project to build a small robot with an Arduino as a brain, and I need some Lego Technics to build it.
Can anyone lend me some pieces ? I would catalog them and return them.

Contest: How much of an @$$hole can Q-Bert be ?

By Q-Bert - Posted on 01 May 2011

It has come to my attention that I have recently acquired the capacity to be the ultimate co-worker @$$hole to one of our members. This had been brewing in the background for the last few months as I have changed contracts and the member in question has been between jobs. As far as I know, his new job is now confirmed (I hope to hell I am not wrong).

Our fates are now linked since last week. I wonder if this member yet knows ?

So, I am the system administrator on the team. The question is: how much of an @$$hole should I be ? Read more

Pacing my stories...

But they appear in Twitter anyways when you push them in.

Breaking: Q-Bert struck blind!

By Q-Bert - Posted on 23 December 2009

I turned on my XBox today and saw a weird video glitch. Like one color missing or something. I reset the console and now no video signal.

I tried another monitor, and tried to connect to my TV via the TV-out cable: nothing. Sound works fine mind you.

Great. I know what I want for my birthday...

So this SQL table walks into a bar...

It's geeky as all hell, but really funny to the DB admins out there...

Dog Days

Not the actual dog in question, but not too far either...Not the actual dog in question, but not too far either...

My neighbour has many qualities (I imagine...) but he has one huge shortcoming: he is a shit-bad dog owner.

So, for the 4th time this year, my neighbour's dog has defended his territory ON MY LAND. This time my girls were with me, so I lost it.

Hey! I have money! Cool!

I told you guys that I have sold Virtual Machine templates for the past 3 years on an ecommerce site that I run (well, *used* to run; I had to shut it down in June because someone hacked it and I couldn't be bothered to fix it. That's what happens when you run old software...).

Well, on November each year, is when I split the loot with my business partner. My part is $1000+ ooooyeah.

On the road to Drupal 6 - Almost complete

By Q-Bert - Posted on 01 November 2009

Well, the migration has completed, and here are the casualties:

The banner menu is borked. I will need some help to figure it out.

The image assist module may not work. I haven't tested it yet. Try to insert an image in a comment please.

The herdofcats theme's CSS file is not synched with the version 6 of its origin theme. That may fix a lot of stuff ultimately, but I don't want to blindly replace the stylesheet with its new version as we did a lot of customizing of it in the last few months and it would be a shame to lose that.

On the road to Drupal 6 - Part deux

By Q-Bert - Posted on 30 October 2009

I am starting to stop some modules in the background. You won't notice much except that the webcomics are going to be AWOL for a while. I warned Blackwalt quite a long time ago that this would happen; let's see if he remembers...

On the road to Drupal 6

By Q-Bert - Posted on 28 October 2009

One of the steps of Drupal 6 upgrade is to make sure you are at the latest version of Drupal 5 before you proceed. We weren't. Now we are running Drupal 5.20, so we are good to continue.

The comics will bite it when we move to Drupal 6, and I think I will have to tweak the HoC theme or else it may not display, but I think all other modules have a Drupal 6 counterpart and should migrate. Read more
