FCGI and output streams

OK so this took more then a while to figure out. I had to go read the FAST CGI specification (http://www.fastcgi.com/devkit/doc/fcgi-spec.html), the lighttpd FastCGI Interface docs (http://trac.lighttpd.net/trac/wiki/Docs:ModFastCGI), the Django FastCGI docs (http://www.djangoproject.com/documentation/fastcgi/) and a number of other forum posts in a number of groups.

All this just to answer the question: How do I get my Python Django applications to print to the the lighttpd error logs when using Lighttpd + FastCGI?

At last I found the answer. At least partially...

Be amazed, enjoy the moment.

Then read the article about it:

Yes it remains really cool.

Captcha is online

With a few code reviews and tweaks to SCT Tools basic captcha support is now online. I still need to integrate the captcha call into the user registration system.

The nice part is now email addresses are hidden unless a captcha check is done. Further captcha checks time out after a short period. Is this open to some kind of mining pass? Possibly a replay attach. Need to check that out. Of course Django is supposed to be pretty solid. Need to see about coping cookies around a little.

Laughing at myself

Back in 1988 I started a BBS in San Diego. I put out a lot of money, installed 2 separate phone lines, had state of the art 2400 baud modems and an Amiga 2000 with nearly 100 MB of disk space and a eye popping 2 MB of RAM. I coded and tested for hundreds of hours. Finally it was ready and I put it online. I published in the local computer magazines that it was up and running. Then I sat and watched it for hours waiting for someone to come use what I created for them. And I waited, and I waited and ... well you get the picture.

FAQ - Read Me First

Here are some answers to the most common questions we've seen posted since the launch of our forums. We'll continue to update this page as more questions arise.

Hours of Operation

The intent is for the forums (and this site) to be open round the clock. This site is under development by the very ideas it is promoting, so it is safe to say we're still working out a few things. This sometimes means that the site has to be taken down for short periods, or that sometimes an area may be offline or in 'read-only' mode. We will eventually get to the place where they are open 24/7.

Workplace safety is a high priority

Funny, but more important a solid safety lesson.

It is a power point viewer only presentation.

Should makes you feel very glad about the quality of your job. If not, I suggest looking for new employment... ;^)

Backup and restore worked

Well in a moment of testing need I decided to determine if the backups where working. So I took a backup of the database and restored it to an entirely different database service. I altered the database handler to point at the new database service and kicked the web services.

What a surprise it actually all came back up just like it is supposed to.

I am in shock. Not only are all the forums back in place, the posts are there, the blogs are there and all the test user data is there too.
