Have you noticed? There’s a new module I just installed. It’s the Genealogy module. Check it out. The program is now integrated into my PHP-Nuke powered website. Applause! Thank you. It took a couple of days of tweaking codes and configurations, but it’s finally working. I just fixed the last problem with my Home Page link.
Learning how to use Linux? I tend to forget most Unix commands I don’t use over time. So, I’m posting the command for unzipping and untarring files typically encountered when downloading files from the internet. To unzip or untar a downloaded file, you will need to perform the following commands:
tar -xvf filename.tar
rpm -i filename.rpm
Of course, substitute filename.ext with the actual filename and extension. That’s it.
I have been trying to get my PHPNuke 6.0 Guestbook module to work the last few days. After two days, I gave up on it. At first, I thought about modifying the code, but it was too complicated and I don’t know enough of PHP without breaking the program. Prior to making changes, I made sure I backed up the original files. That was a good thing because I had some very interesting results.
My family is big on genealogy. Years ago, my mom researched the genealogy of the British Royal family. She was able to trace the royal line all the way back to Adam. Sounds impossible? Well, not according to a book published years ago back in England tracing the royals all the way to King Solomon of Israel. From there, you can use the Bible to trace the royal line all the way back to the first man, Adam. Hmm… interesting.
I’m currently working on saxophone solo of Sonata #3 by G. F. Handel. I’m scheduled to perform special music at church on Feb. 8, 2003. The first item on the agenda was to start on the solo portion of the piece and then work with the accompaniment afterwards. With the aid of a computer, I entered the solo in a music program called “Music Write.” Then, I had it played back to get familiar with the notes and rhythm of the song. Sounds like cheating? Not really. I think it’s a great tool for any amateur musician.
