Muggy! Am I still in the rainy season?

Update information      Edit(Jul.26)   Edit2(Jul.27)   Edit3(Jul.30)

   Very very sunny, today! Besides very muggy! But still in the rainy season(梅雨) around our area, I mean the northern part of Kyūshū(九州). The #12 typhoon(HALOLA) is approaching Kyūshū.

   The day today is very hot and the fitting weather for Midsummer Day of the Ox(土用の丑の日). I wonder if you know the day when people eat grilled eel(鰻の蒲焼) in Japan though I didn’t have it today.

   I took a picture of a large brown cicada(油蝉). When I see and hear these cicadas, I feel in the middle of the summer season this year. \(^o^)/

   At 13:40 today, JMA predicted HALOLA weakened into a tropical depression again around tomorrow afternoon. I wish the forecast right.

   I took another picture of cicadas. They are another popular cicada around my region called クマゼミ, literally “bear cicada”. They are bigger than large brown cicadas.クマゼミ

   Around 21:00 on July 26, the #12 typhoon(HALOLA) weakened to a tropical depression earlier than JMA prediction. After all, we had weak rain and wind by it.

   Yesterday, the end of this rainy season around our area coincided with release of Windows10. Well, just joking (*^_^*).

   In fact, JMA announced the end of the rainy season about the northern part of Kyūshū(九州) and the northern part of Tōhoku(東北) on July 29.

Updating Apache because of CVE-2015-1793.

   I updated my Apache 2.4.12( to 2015 Jul 9 version because of Alternative chains certificate forgery (CVE-2015-1793).

   It is built with ‘IPv6 Crypto apr-1.5.1 apr-util-1.5.4 apr-iconv-1.2.1 openssl-1.0.2d zlib-1.2.8 pcre-8.37 libxml2-2.9.2 lua-5.1.5 expat-2.1.0′. Its Changelog.
   This version is also built with the latest Windows® Visual Studio C++ 2015 RC aka VC14. I began to use VC14 version on June 2 due to OpenSSL 1.0.2. If you use the version, you need to install vc_redist_x64/86.exe before installing the version.

   I really appreciate Steffen’s hard and quick work. Thanks again, Steffen.

   By the way, I take this occasion to update to phpMyAdmin 4.4.11 and MariaDB 10.0.20.

   About phpMyAdmin I noticed two differences. From the version 4.4.10 the download URL changed from to And this version, I mean 4.4.11, they provide not only MD5/SHA1 but PGP. I wonder if something happened between sourceforge and phpmyadmin.

Yesterday, FireFox 39.0 came.

   Yesterday, FireFox 39.0 came by automatic update.

   Now FireFox deploys fixes for the Logjam attack really. You can see what vulnerabilities are fixed in 39.0 ⇒ Fixed in Firefox 39.

   As you know, they fix a lot of vulnerabilities in each version. So you must keep your web browser up-to-date status. Well, this is not for web browsers only (^^;).

The translation “Seijō no Ran (青条の蘭)”-#10.

   As I wrote before, my real life style very changed since the beginning of this year. Now I have gotten used to this, but it makes my translation progress more slowly though I continue. Please be patient.

   I’ve posted the chapter 6, “Seijō no Ran (青条の蘭)” after a long long interval.
