Finally, autumn has come.

I think autumn has come.
I think autumn has come.
   From Wednesday to Monday, we had rain after a certain interval in my town. Especially, we had a good amount of rainfall from 24th to 26th. Though the rain made disasters some other areas, we had good rain for us because some crops wanted water in my town. And, the rain brought autumn to my town. The rain stopped on 26th and we have very sunny days yesterday and today, so the heat comes back again during the day. But, very much different compared to a week ago. I made a graph, please take a look!

   The graph based on the data of my town AMeDAS(アメダス). Do you know Japanese AMeDAS? First, “AMeDAS” is an abbreviation of “automated meteorological data acquisition system”. Second, AMeDAS instruments exist throughout Japan. Of course, in my town. Third, we use its data anytime we need them. Where can we find them? At JMA official site. So, I used them and made the graph. Actually, my town AMeDAS is a miner version and does not give us the humidity data, so I took the data of it from the nearest city AMeDAS.

   If you want to visit Japan except Hokkaidō someday, and if the length of the visit is very short, I am never going to recommend a summer travel to you. (^^;)(^^;)(^^;)

Note for the graph:
 8月:August
 気温(℃):Temperature(℃)

   By the way, I found a caterpillar in my garden. Of course, in the garden some insects live everyday. But this kind of caterpillar is very first time for me. Do you know the name of this caterpillar?

Edit:
   One of my Japanese Blog visitors told me the name of the caterpillar. It is a caterpillar of Theretra japonica. Now, my head was cleared. (^^)

   Thanks a lot, FHさん.

Updating to PHP5.5.3.

   At Aug-21 17:44:24UTC, they released PHP5.5.3.

   Acoording to the ChangeLog, they fixed UMR(unInitialized Memory Read) in fix for CVE-2013-4248. A fix for CVE-2013-4248 again?

   Anyway, I downloaded a Thread Safe version php-5.5.3-Win32-VC11-x86.zip for my server (Windows7HP+SP1(x86)). It requires VC11. If you don’t have VC11 on your Windows, you must install vcredist_x__.exe before the PHP configuration.

   As the official PHP binary includes php5apache2_4.dll, I extract the zip archive and replace all PHP5.5.2 files with all PHP5.5.3 files except my php.ini. Then, I restart my Apache. That’s it.

   If you need how to configure PHP5.5, please see the post. It is for a mbstrings user, but the information gives some help for you.

Updating to PHP5.5.2.

   At Aug-16 02:13:06UTC, they released PHP5.5.2. So, I downloaded a Thread Safe version php-5.5.2-Win32-VC11-x86.zip for my server (Windows7HP+SP1(x86)). It requires VC11. If you don’t have VC11 on your Windows, you must install vcredist_x__.exe before the PHP configuration.

   Acoording to the ChangeLog, it has some bug fixes and includes the patch for CVE-2013-4248.

   The new php.ini-production has two difference from the php.ini-production of version 5.5.1.
   The line “;extension=php_zip.dll” doesn’t exist anymore.
   Edit typos: mssql.compatability_mode = Off —> mssql.compatibility_mode = Off

   As the official PHP binary includes php5apache2_4.dll, I extract the zip archive and replace all PHP5.5.1 files with all PHP5.5.2 files except my php.ini. Then, I restart my Apache. That’s it.

   If you need how to configure PHP5.5, please see the post. It is for a mbstrings user, but the information gives some help for you.

Memorandum #4.

   How to create from the mo file to the po file on Windows OS.

  1. Install Poedit.
  2. Run cmd.exe
    >cd (Poedit bin Path)
    >msgunfmt -o (po file) (mo file)   —>See Command Line Help.
  3. That’s it. I have the po file. Happy.

   I stopped using the three plugins because they haven’t been updated in over 2 years.

   I started using the next plugins instead of the three plugins above.

Upgrading to WordPress 3.6.

   Today, Japanese WordPress develop members announced they brought the new Japanese version WordPress for us, according to the Codex for Version 3.6, there are tons of changes.

   My WordPress is a multisite type and the parent site language is English. Probably for this reason, the WordPress Updates page does not show me the Japanese version update message.

   So, I downloaded wordpress-3.6-ja.zip manually and upgraded.

   Happy upgrade!! But, to use the new features I should update my themes I made by myself. Sigh!

The Return of the Prodigal Server.

   This early morning, I moved my live production site from the old laptop PC to the xw4200 in which I made a wamp-like server until yesterday.

   The xw4200 is my previous server machine. In the mid-April of last year, its SCSI HDD was broken. It took a long time before I found out the SCSI HDD was broken. At that time, the PC gave me a lot of trouble.

   But now, the PC works in a very cheerful way. That is “The Return of the Prodigal Server”. (^o^)(^o^)(^o^)
