Yahoo! Weather icon not presented any more with GeekTool?

June 10th, 2012 2 comments

Partly CloudyYahoo! recently changed the code for storing / providing their weather icons. That results in problems displaying the icons for example with Geektool.

Here’s the new code:

curl –silent “” | grep “current-weather” | sed “s/.*background\:url(\’\(.*\)\’) .*/\1/” | xargs curl –silent -o /tmp/weather.png\

Replace the orange part with the code extracted of the yahoo weather-url for your city – e.g.:

WordPress 3.0, iOS4 and other updates

June 20th, 2010 No comments

Yesterday I’ve started to update my infrastructure (not GIS powered for those of you knowing them 😉 ).

One of the big changes so far: WordPress has released version 3.0 and I updated now. Went fine with one issue coming up:
I had to update my php.ini to allow more than 16M cache for scripting. There have been troubles already in the past when viewing the admin-page – but with 3.0 installed the admin page even didn’t show at all.
To get rid of this I first removed all the plugins to get sure the installation was fine on it’s base. After this the php.ini was updated with this little change: …16M… to …64M… for setting the cache for scripting.
Now it works perfectly.

iOS 4Second thing was that I’ve updated my iPhones last week with the GM iOS4 and realized that the phones performance went down dramatically.
I wasn’t sure what the problem was – but I saw it running faster on other phones…
In addition I was disappointed that the ‘wallpaper’ feature will NOT work on 3G phones. I think this is not performance related at all, only to push ‘old’ 3G users to the shop for getting a new iPhone4.
So I jailbreaked one of my phones today to check it out – and surprise, surprise… the phone is FASTER and reacting on touch-events now again much better. So my decision for the next days: I’ll give it a try 😉

Translation (google):

On every image in the movie is applied a filter to reduce square areas, which comes from codec’s compression algorithm.

Auf jedem Bild in der Film wird mit einem Filter, um Platz Bereichen, die von Kompressions-Codec-Algorithmus kommt zu reduzieren.
