There's a fresh release of GNUMP3d my MP3 streaming application pending release.

The only thing holding me back is a broken upload to savannah.gnu.org, hopefully I'll resolve this shortly.

A new Debian package is sitting in the incoming queue ready to be released.


Not too much happening, I checked over a couple of security issues - which turned out to not affect Debian - and then wrote a few new articles.

Apache Bandwidth Limitting

A random (??) rash of queries about my Apache bandwidth limiting module, mod_curb , this week.

Three people talked out of nowhere about issues building it on FreeBSD, which I find pretty random.

I'm still plagued with malaise when it comes to updating this module for virtual hosts, and Apache 2.

I guess I just need motivating.

I think ultimately it's because I still know few people using Apache2 in production, and I've not made the move myself.

The other issue is that my current code is clean, simple, and works nicely. The new version (half complete) mandates the use of a MySQL database - which I think might be a bit much in terms of requirements..
