Donky runs Ubuntu 8.10

Ubuntu 8.10 is released and I have already installed it on my desktop. My server have to wait since I plan to upgrade the hardware so it becomes a 64-bit system and give it SATA-disks.

The upgrading went smoothly.

Trim your Tiny Tiny RSS-reader

The more I use Hibernate in Java the more I love Storm in Python. It is so easy and light weight.

A while ago I installed Tiny Tiny RSS on my Ubuntu server and is happy to use it as my RSS reader. First I thought it was slow, but it is easy to fix.

Activate the expire module:
a2enmod expires

Create a file /etc/apache2/conf.d/expires:
ExpiresActive On
ExpiresByType image/x-icon "access plus 1 weeks"
ExpiresByType image/gif "access plus 1 weeks"

Finally restart your apache. Your webbrowser will now cache all icons and gif-pictures.
