Radio Hell or why Userland sucks

By the way, I still think that Radio sucks and it's buggy as hell. But I'd be willing to live with that. But the support is incredible unresponsive. Have you read the comments about Dell Hell? Dell was slammed for not responding to blogs. Well, I am in Radio Hell and Userland, a blog company (don't need a mitt to catch that irony), hasn't responded at all. Userland has robed me of my legacy on the web, of my position in Google. My old site is garbage and they have refused to provide me a way to update it correctly. Of course, Userland is no longer the same company I bought from... I have demanded a refund, they, of course, have not responded...

What does Chavez hope to achieve? [Thanks, Craig!]

The protests against columbus day parade compound an interesting commentary on how the neo constructionist post modernism manages to avoid criticizing its own society. Instead of moving against british imperialism or against rosy pictures like Thanksgiving, it moves against Colombus, an italian that never set foot in the US. Colombus was a man of his time and an impressive historic figure, despite its faults. Yes, latinamerica has some claim for hating Colombus, because they were colonized mostly by Colombus spanish followers, though figures like Cortez deserve the hatred more. But the US indigenous people should aim its anger at British colonialism. Funny how the descendants of such colonialism lead the movement and avoid the blame... By punishing an italian spanish descendants, like Chavez, can also play the same game...

It's in spanish, but I have to link to it. From El Opinador Compulsivo we get Decálogo del Populismo Iberoamericano. Clear proof that Chavez isn't fooling everybody...

Viva Venezuela Atea!

Not everything I write here is against Chavez or the Venezuelan government. I really like the fact that Chavez wants to kick out US missionaries. I say, kick them all out! Kick the catholic church out too! That way Venezuela can become a paradise of atheism, like most of its citizens want!

Keep the Internet Free!

Please, Keep the Internet Free!. A group of countries, including Saudi Arabia, China, Cuba and Venezuela, want to wrestle control of the root servers away from the US. From the article:

This worldwide web of tyrannies, hiding behind the veneer of technical complaints, now seeks to control not just what its own citizens are able to see and say on the Internet, but what every individual on the face of the planet is able to see and say.
With all its defect the US has a better tradition of upholding freedom than any of these countries. If they manage to wrestle control, a rogue internet will be created for freedom, but it will be harder to access. I hope the US stands fast on this one. Let those countries break away from the Internet, they don't have the content we want!

Good news: I may be dumb, but Radio is dumber

I think I have solved one of my problems with Radio. If you see this post is because my uploading problems seem to be over. At first I thought it was all my fault. You see, I had tested my FTP server, but I normally use SFTP (FTP through an SSH tunnel), now the difference when you use FTP in a local machine (or through) an FTP tunnel is that you are not going to the special directory FTPRoot, but to your normal directory structure. FTPRoot makes the connecting machine think it is the root of your server, that way you can share what you want and protect the rest. Now, I wasn't using FTPRoot before, I made the change when I move to Mac OS X Server. I tried using FTP and what do you know! It wouldn't upload! I swallowed hard. If this turned out to be my fault, the Userland support guys would hit me hard... But after a few experiments I found out Radio still at least shares part of the blame. It turns out that if you ask Radio to upload a file to /Library/WebServer/Documents It will ignore a link called Library and since it can't create a Library folder, it will create a WebServer folder... If you create a WebServer link pointing to the right place, it will ignore that and create a Documents folder. Hence, Radio was uploading the files, but to the wrong folder! Creating a Documents Link pointing to the right place, seem to have solved the problem.

The problem in my weblogs.com hosted site persist. If I try to upload the whole site Radio creates a weird version of my site, not only with an old look (I wouldn't mind that), but pointing to www.octavio.net and with the home page from that site. I have no idea why it does that and how to solve it. But right now if support can just get me a way to upload my real rendered files to that location, I may just keep using Radio (I will update the look of my site, though).

Britain's Secret Service Indeed! Spy on It on Its Web Site

Britain's Secret Service Indeed! Spy on It on Its Web Site: Britain's Secret Intelligence Service introduced its first publicly accessible Web Site.

Very cool website, but how do you go from denying your existence to advertise on the web? And what is the purpose of the site? More importantly, will we get a blog any time soon?

I am deep inside one of North Korea Nuclear reactors. Don't have much time to post, must destroy this thing before... Shit, Wi-Fi in North Korea is spotty at best!
