Jörg Jaspert wonders, if planet.debian.org should be available as a mailing list, too. That's a proposal to solve the problem, that planet has been used by more or less official announcement and discussions, but not all people have time / want to read planet.

Maybe it isn't that bad, if your girlfriend leaves you for some days alone at home?
PS: Of course it is... but you get some work done.

The other day, I had an interesting problem, regarding Apache, the
LocationMatch directive and regular expressions. I'll put it
here, so I'll be able to find it again...
Actually it was a quite simple problem: A simple web page, where all web
pages are protected with a password. No big Problem: Use a
AuthType basic, problem solved.... or isn't
Some documents might be needed to be available without the authentication... for example robots.txt... or the funky custom error document, which explains how to get the authentication data, in case the authentication fails.
Looking at the documentation, found a solution:
LocationMatch exists, where you specify a regular
expression, which must match, for the following configuration to
What isn't mentioned in the documentation, that the obvious
solution... something like
!"^/(robots.txt|my401handler.html"> doesn't work. See apache bug
10932. Needed quite some time, to find this out...
Luckily Meike found the bug report above, which has a workaround for
that problem: Use
Oh... and if your customized error handler references some pictures or style sheets, don't forget to add them to the regular expression above, too.

Today is the 9th of August and we've been at a restaurant (well... a self service cafeteria). Nothing fancy so far about it, but it was the first time this month, which makes it kind of special: On the first a new law come into effect in Lower Saxony (and some other parts of Germany) prohibiting smoking in public restaurants (save in closed, separate rooms).
Being a non-smoker it was a nice experience to see how the former smoking area had vanished from the restaurant. Especially, since in that special case you couldn't avoid the smoking zone: To get to the toilette you needed to go through the smoking zone. And where do you bring your tablet back? Right, in the smoking zone.
