Last week’s not been that good in the non-hassleness of computers.
Exhibit A: The wordpress configuration issue (inability to grant privileges) that consumed a significant chunk of last friday evening turned out to be a feature offered by the service provider. Circumvented, by taking a slight shortcut in the installation.
Exhibit B: The new version of the Nokia Multimedia Transfer tool gets into an infinite loop upon startup and is, obviously, unable to gather any photographs from the mobile phone. Using the USB-cable and the phone in data transfer mode enables image retrieval, and is not too much of an extra effort to perform.
Exhibit B.1: The n95′s bluetooth is somehow utterly unable to play nice with Lynch, and sending of any files directly from the phone fails immediately. Might be fixed with a new firmware, might not.
Exhibit C: Freemind’s latest official build seems to be totally incompatible with Leopard, but a beta build of the 0.9-series comes to the rescue.
Exhibit D: The chosen WordPress theme seems to break at the seams when not really extraordinary cases are reached. Eg. having a post title longer than a single line ends up in a horrible overlap-o-rama.
