This blog is back to live

This blog has been down for few days, I've been so busy that I didn't try to fix it till today.

First I was extremely concerned about security as I had a security update not installed in drupal, but fortunately this wasn't the case. When I checked the apache error log I found this:
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function taxonomy_node_get_terms() in /*******/sites/all/modules/tagadelic/tagadelic.module on line 172

Strange, I didn't change anything in the modules lately, not even upgrading tagadelic, and taxonomy is a drupal core module so what the hell has happened?

compiz and metacity fight to be "compositing manager" in debian lenny

After I managed to run my X fine after my last problem with Xorg configurations, I had apt-getted compiz fusion. After it has run few times ok, It just stopped running, when i try to start it using compiz --replace I get the following error:

/usr/bin/compiz.real (core) - Error: Could not acquire compositing manager selection on screen 0 display ":0.0"
/usr/bin/compiz.real (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

debian lenny, Xorg 7.3, and xorg.conf

I had problems after I installed debian lenny on my laptop, After some digging in the system I found that debian lenny now includes Xorg 7.3 , there's something that made me really lost regarding it, that it simply doesn't use the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf .. actually i didn't find it on my system. So - as I'm used to - issued the configuring command

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

and I was really surprised that the configurations was only for input devices (keyboard), and the generated xorg.conf was such a lame, contains only the following:

howto display only unread emails in your gmail inbox

I always use thunderbird, normally I never use the web interface for gmail for lots of reasons, one of them is the privacy of my address book.

Anyway today i was using the web interface and I wondered how to get only the unread emails. I didn't find anything in gmail's interface that allows that..

After some looking around, I found the answer. Simply search your gmail with the following phrase:
in:inbox label:unread
and you got only unread email from your inbox there :)
