Yes, phpbb had a security problem. Again. Because I want something resembling a working webforum on Camp Wireless I now run php in safe_mode.

Interesting what you can see in a web access log: - - [23/Nov/2004:17:19:28 +0100] "GET /forum/viewtopic.php?t=12&highlight=%2527%252esystem(chr(105)%252echr(100))%252e%2527 HTTP/1.0" 200 15071 "-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0b; Windows NT 5.0)". Guess phpBB has a problem...

2004-11-22 Camp wireless goes wap
Camp Wireless goes mobile. Wap browsers will find a lightweight mobile version of the directory of campsites at This solves the chicken-and-egg problem of being somewhere and finding a campsite with wireless Internet, without having Internet. Programming for wap is interesting. There is only one wap-browser for Unix available, wApua but that one does not support forms. And stuff that looks ok in wApua fails horribly on my Nokia with the helpful error for any page it doesn't understand (including wml format errors): 'File format not understood'.

Afgelopen weekend HCC dagen. Op de PCgg stand gespeeld met driftnet met output naar een videoprojector. Het algemene beeld is toch wel dat de beurs minder groot en minder druk was dan voorgaande jaren.

Fixed the antenna connector for my gpskit so I have working mapping with gpsdrive. Tried this in the train this weekend (screendump 1 and screendump 2 and screendump 3) and had kismet running giving wireless networks with usable map locations (after the first one).

Updated an xml-rpc interface. This may sound completely buzzwordian to you, but it's just that amazon offers amazon webservices where xml-rpc calls are one possible way to query their database. The Virtual Bookcase uses this interface for detail information about books and searches.

Round of Apache web server upgrades, with included PHP upgrade. Somehow Apache on FreeBSD still doesn't like to build shared objects, so the Apache on is statically linked again. Affected sites: The Virtual Bookcase, Camp Wireless,, Fight Spam on the Internet!.

Added more campsites to the directory of campsites at Camp Wireless. Now all the site needs is lots of visitors.

Memories of my Alaska holiday... since then, the FAA has added webcams with the purpose of seeing the current weather state at many airports in Alaska (to aid in planning visual flight rule flights). Nice to get an updated view of the weather when (limited) daylight permits. I see places on those images I visited (ok, if a road is visible and it's in a town I visited, I have been on that road. There aren't that many.)
