On August 30th, 2009 at 6pm there is a gathering of Battlestar Galactica fans in the Bronx’s. The festivities include games, trivia, entertainment, and discussion regarding the series. I will be in attendance and as a panel member during discussion representing the Battlestar Wiki!

This will be my first Battlestar related event that I will ever go to. The location is at the Hi Christina at:

632 Grand Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn NY near the L train at Lorimer

Cover charge for the event is $5. There is parking nearby or if you live in the greater NYC area take the metro. I hope to see you there!

So say we all!

I watched G.I. Joe last night. I liked it a lot, but the film could have used better acting. A lot of the lines were cookie cut from the comics which are good for comics. Not movies since they are supposed to be free-following dialog between the characters.

Dennis Quad, who plays General Hawk, lines where very “stale” and had no “meaning” to them. Other than that the movie was good. The cinematography seems like it was also not fluid. Now like every comic movie, the movie did set it self up for more squeals, but the overall film could have been done better.

Oh yeah. The women in this movie were just HOT! Rachel Nichols and Sienna Miller can come haunt me anytime. :)

Rating: 7 out of 10. / Women Rating: Off the charts!

NYY SWEEPS BOS!

Posted by Shane

Unreal! I thought when I checked the score during the middle of the night (since I was really tired… I went to be early) I was so happy that the Yankees sweep the Sox’s here in New York that I almost feel sorry for the Red Sox’s fans. Maybe now I have a bit of confidence that NYY can beat either the Red Sox’s or LA Angels during the postseason.

With Bostons 4 straight losses they have tied themselves with Texas in the AL wild card. And Detroit right now seems to be holding onto the AL Central lead.

Post season baseball is right around the corner and I plan on posting my predictions soon! Be on the look out!

I spent the good part of the day installing and updating the FrakMedia! Network Servers with PHP 5.3.0. That also including updating all the other sites that are on the server, but one of the more important things for me here on this site is WordPress and the ability to use SSH2 as the transfer protocol for plugins, core, and themes.

PECL by default if you were trying the ‘pecl install ssh2-beta‘ command you get an error message saying that it doesn’t work. Duh!

But as usual the system was broken. So it took now ~12 hours for me to find and get it fixed. However, I had to do some heavy searching in order get it to work and I am going to give it out right now on how to get it working!

Media Feature Vote In!

Posted by Shane

The Media 2.9 Feature vote is in! Albums top the list as I thought they would. This gives me a good idea where to bring the Media Wireframes Document up to speed and allows me now to get back in with Mark, Jane_, and Rudolf Lai who has been working on this feature during the summer as part of the Google Summer Code Project.

Expect to see increased activity surrounding media work in the coming days/weeks . Might slow down a few of the plugins I am developing, but in the end I rather wait to get 2.9 out the door than release my plugins and theme! (Notice “singular” in “theme”. :))
