Ubuntu 9.04 With Compiz

It seems most appropriate to post my screenshots of Ubuntu Linux 9.04 with Compiz-Fusion right now right after replacing Windows 7 Beta 7000 with it.  I went through and turned on quite a few custom effects, including my windows burning up when they are minimized or restored.

I suspect that it’s having all these animations and effects on that make the WordPress editor terribly unresponsive.  Or it could be something completely different since CPU utilization only spikes when I interact with the windows.

Gameplay Video: Marisa vs. Alice

The other day I got bored and recorded a quick 2 minute gameplay video of a fight between Marisa and Alice (Marisa played by yours truly) in Immaterial and Missing Power. 🙂  Sorry in advance if it’s a little loud, I use crappy $5 headphones. 😛

Update on phpBB3.0.4 on PHP 5.3.0RC2

Hmm… well it’s not crashing outright according to GDB, so I can only imagine it’s encountering a fatal error along the installation process.

Update: It’s dying on the line that reads $install->load(); However, it doesn’t toss an error when it does so. Interesting. It does not crash there, however, if I modify it to be passed two empty strings as parameters.

phpBB 3.0.4 on PHP 5.3.0RC2

I went ahead and decided to try installing phpBB 3 on PHP 5.3.0RC2 running CGI. The initial build of PHP 5.3.0RC2 went incredibly smoothly, and only a handful of tests failed when I ran `make test.` Got it installed in my web server’s chroot environment and phpinfo runs fine. (After accidentally configuring CGI to use the CLI binary, hehe.)

After that phpBB3 however it gives me the white screen of death when I try progressing into installation. No matter what I do, I can’t seem to get an error message out of it. I’ll try to get some discernibly useful information from it in the coming days.  I suspect it’s crashing but the chroot doesn’t have direct access to debug tools, so I may need to set it up elsewhere first.

Immaterial and Missing Power

I’ve been playing quite a bit of Touhou Project’s Immaterial and Missing Power, and it is quite the addictive fighting game.  Most of the other Touhou project games are bullet-hell shooter games.  I’m kinda not so great at fighting games or bullet-hell games.  There’s an English patch, but you don’t really need it to play the game unless you want to follow the story.
