Blog update

Drupal and PHP 5.4This blog is now proudly running on Drupal 7. I was afraid of this upgrade all the time but it turned out to be a lot less problematic than I expected. Actually, I had to take this step as Drupal 6 - or rather some very common contributed modules - kinda refused to work properly with PHP 5.4. Since I was sick at home anyway, I finally decided to use that time to take care of this rather exciting task on my to-do list.

Now that I got it out of the way, I might feel a little more motivated to add new content to this site. I started off with a new gadget on the right side of all pages labeled "Random Likes". It shows a random entry from the Recommendations section which will change (almost) every time you view a page. I'll try to add some new recommended apps and programs once I'm through with those furry events like fur dances and fur meets.

Oh, and by the way: the eurofurence countdown got it's own domain now.

403 Forbidden - Fur Affinity hotlink protection explained

403 ForbiddenIf you are a furry and you have an interest in furry art you might have noticed that other furries started giving you strange reactions to the art you post in forums or on your websites. People claim that they can't see the art you posted and even when you link them to the image directly, they say that they only get a white page with the text "403 Forbidden" on it.

This is all caused by a mechanism called "hotlink protection".

Smart Blog Post

It's been a while since my last post, so I'll just write a quick update what's been going on and announce what might appear on here in the near future.

I finished my move to Cologne, got a new job, an affordable place to live and therefore more money to spend. This means I now finally have one of these smartphones everyone seems to be running around with today.

And this means that I have plenty of Android apps to share with my fellow readers (if any) and this is what I'll do once I got a new credit card.

Update: I got my credit card and started feeding the recommendations section.
