Dark Side of the Mood

My computer is about to die. I’m gonna need a bigger boat. Stay tuned.

Il mio computer sta schiattando. Restate sintonizzati mentre vedo e provvedo…

The music video for The Ghost in You’s Seahorses has been directed by Matt Spicer and not by Billy Polard as I mistakenly wrote yesterday.

Protect Our Waves Credits: Clip Fixed

The High Definition clip for Protect Our Waves Titles ain’t been fully uploaded. I’ve just put it online. Sorry about the mishap!

La clip in alta definizione per i titoli di Protect Our Waves non era stata caricata in pieno. L’ho rimessa online. Scusate il casino!

To Fellow Dreamhosters

I just discovered that the Cache plugin for Wordpress stopped working after the site was moved to a new server. If you’re running WP with Super Cache, and your site was moved too (that’s a big if) there’s a fat chance that the same happened to you.

Damn -__-

Posting resume is postponed to whenever I’ll be able to keep my PC on for more than 30 minutes. Will buy an UPS. Also, there’s more than 150 e-mails and private messages to answer. Be patient, yet again.

Outside Event Horizon

Tomorrow regular posting will resume. The Cogent throughput issue has been the cherry top on a very bad period I hope I’ve finally left behind me. Thanks for your moral support.

Domani riprenderò a postare regolarmente. Il problema di Cogent è stato la cieliegina sulla torta di un brutto periodo che spero di essermi lasciato alle [...]

Escaping Oblivion

I really don’t know what to do. I’ve let this week pass by without updates because I’m too pissed off.

My connection works perfectly. Dreamhost says that my server is working perfectly too, and I believe them. The problem is somewhere in between — the host with IP address (= CogentCo gateway) for me — and there’s nothing neither me nor them can do about it.

I can’t even move my site elsewhere, because a complete backup, at this speed rate — 15KB/s in the (Europe) morning and 5KB/s in the (Europe) evening — would take about seven months.

Now: is it normal that, after two weeks (at least) of persisting issues, traffic from No Fat Clips!!! is still forwarded through a broken route? Wasn’t the Internet Protocol designed to find the best available route between two hosts? Does this means that Cogent is the only available option?

Sorry for the rant, but there’s little more I can do right now. In fact I could post stuff, even tho’ I wouldn’t be able to watch it myself! The irony…

Sorry Guys

Apparently my website is very fast in the USA and very slow in Europe. And I’m in Europe. I’ve notified Dreamhost, but I guess it’s not their fault at all.

Meebo Functions

The Meebo Me widget is working again. Many thanks to the Meebo support for promptly solving the problem. Obviously, the pending messages are gone forever.

Il coso di Meebo Me funziona di nuovo. Un grosso grazie allo staff Meebo per la pronta risoluzione del problema. Ovviamente, i messaggi in giacenza sono andati perduti.

Meebo Malfunctions

The Meebo Me widget is working bad, if at all. I’m not getting messages, I don’t even see people online. (Even when nobody’s online, I should at least see me…)

I’m leaving it online for the support staff to test, but you’d better not use it. You can get in touch with me in dozens of other ways (Twitter, MySpace, Vimeo…) I’ve never used Twitter a lot, but I just installed Echofon, a Twitter client for Firefox, so feel free to tweet me.

Password? WTF?!?

If you’ve been asked for a password when trying to view credits, previews or Vimeo videos, that’s my fault. I’ve mistakenly activated authentication on the directory where the Automaton resides. Fixed now.

Harder, Better, Faster, Weaker

Hey there! A strange case of flu forced me to bed in the last days, but I’m up and running again (mostly I run to the bathroom, but still running…)

In other news, Pedro López posted (on Facebook) about No Fat Clips!!! being shown on Spanish television. Awesome!

Sorry, the embedded clip for The Forest is incomplete. Don’t know what happened, but I’m uploading it again. Check back in an hour, or watch the short on the official site.

Is Dead…

Ok, it’s alive again, now. But I’m looking into the log files to see WTF just happened.
Ok, è resuscitato. Ma voglio prima leggere i log per capire che cacchio è successo.
