Integrating flowtype.js with wordpress

I recently wanted to use flowtype.js with wordpress to create a liquid layout for the text as well as the images. Integrating it required a bit of research into how to load javascript into wordpress the 'correct' way. Here's how it fits together.

Zimbra Issues

Post upgrade problems

We recently upgraded to Zimbra 8.6 from 8.0.7. We hit a problem that not even zimbra support was able to figure out. Perhaps its that our Zimbra instance has been upgraded since version 3 (or 4) but it got into a bad state whenever we tried to update the proxy. Here's the solution.

Time Stamp Counters

While investigating a different issue, I found myself looking again at accurate timing with the rdtsc instruction
to read the processor's Time Stamp Counters. I last blogged about this when looking at the jitter caused by system calls to the linux kernel, and things have changed quite a lot. This post is the result of my trip around this particular block again.

Hangover and Slow day.

This seems to have gone so quickly. Day 9 already. I'll probably be posting this from Dumaguete, as the globe signal here is so unreliable and slow. Missed yoga this morning, to my shame. But then everyone else did too. Sorry Valerie. Whisky does that. Body doesn't feel like a temple this morning..

Busy day; artists, live music, ecology, exobiology and Kepler

What a busy day.

Starting with the previous night - Bats. The lecture was very well done and informative, but the real surprise was the two real live bats that Tikyo netted and brought in to show us. Emily held one and Tikyo the other. They were fantastic, and no trouble at all.

clear skies, cooking, surveys

A fine day. Blue skies – gentle swell. Last night we had clear skies with a great view of the milky way, Centaurus and Scorpio. Also the fireflies are back.

A lazy morning with a survey dive at 15m off Typhoon Beach. The camera didn't handle that too well with a noticeable concavity to the back panel. Hard corals mainly – Montipora, Echinopora and Pectinia. There was one I do need to look up – a beautiful one like crisps or fried curly Kale, which is on the tip of my tongue - I miss “Corals of the World”. Spotted a crown of thorns during the safety stop. (turned out to be Pavona Cactus)

The return of the sunset deck

Danjugan came good for us today in many ways. Today's blog entry comes from the sunset deck, glass of wine in hand. The sun is a handspan from the horizon, there is blue sky above and the sea is back to a semblance of placidity.
