I don’t know about you out there, but I’m a kind of person asking questions all the time.I really wanna serve the Lord in a way. Today my grandma came home and shared she is on a wayto go completely crazy I really am in pain for her she is so kind and good but she suffers so badlyshe suffers from diabetic foot disease I fervently pray to our creator to have mercy over her and help herand heal her disease or at least take away the pain in the Name of Jesus Our Saviour! Amen.
Yesterday I was to the beach again. We went first to a place called “The robinson” which was a terrible place. A small “beach” with oldnon functional quay. There were some of the planks missing so I had to walk very carefully at some places there were nails.At first I almost fall down from the quay there were a broken plank and I lost equilibrium thanks God I was able to balance myself and not fall.If I had fallen down I would probably seriously hurt or even die, cause down there the sea was shallow, the possible scenarious was to seriously hurt myself or even die .. Just a minute later a friend of mine who was walking in front of me warned me to be careful with the nails on some of the planks and even though I was carefully watching my steps I step over a nail. The nail pierced my sport shoes. At this moment I felt just a little hurt so I thoght I didn’t hurt seriously. Anyway I decided to take off the shoe and sock and blood started sprinkling. It took me some time to come back to the beach because I had to walk back through all that broken planks on the quay. Thanks to God I moved back to the beach where I put my leg in the salty water. Nomen and Javor were going to Kavarna at this moment so Toto (the guy who was with me) did call to Nomen and told him to get some medical alcohol (spirits) from the drug-store. After they came we used the alcolol to wash the wound in order disinfect it. Later while I was sitting on the beach Toto and Nomen went to the sea to catch some mussels. Toto was diving and searching for musselsfor some time and he quit at a point because he wasn’t able to collect enough. They came with only two mussels. At this time Javor tried to catch some fish from the quay, again unsuccesfully. Later we decided to move to another beach because I proposed so, I hated this place really plus it location was too near to the sea shore. We tried to move to another nice beach but since it was proprietary we wasn’t allowed to establish the tent and make the camp fire. So at the end we decided to move to Topola’s beach. The night there was a nerdy one, Toto and Javor were trying to make fun of me and I got really angry .. They made a fire and we baked some meat balls and had a nice dinner. The sky was full of stars, really beautiful ! I spend maybe an hour watching at the sky adoring the mighty work of God’s hands. I slept that Night at Nomen’s car (Audio A4 :)). At the morning Nomen and Toto and after that Mitko came one after another and woked me up for a few times at the end when I realized i won’t be able to sleep anymore and stand up and dressed my bathing trunks and went to the beach. I entered 3 times at the sea and had a really nice baths, we played volley ball in the water and had great time. At midday we had to set off to home because Nomen was going to travel back to Sofia in the afternoon. There was a problem one of the car’s tyre was passing the air out so Toto and Nomen used there 3l337 skillz to exchange the broken tyre. At somewhere around 14:30 we were back in Dobrich. I haven’t been to my grandma for a day so I went to her apartment (she lives 6 stages above my parent’s apartment. After that I went to the Church where I lighted few candles and prayed to God to have mercy over me the sinner and my family. On my way back home I met Papi (Paco). Papi is very guy a christian who for some time was like a Spiritual Father to me. We had a walk at the city park and spoke a bit about our life and the christianity’s face in general and how poor the condition of the christianity and faith in general is. Later at home my mother helped me to exercise the driving lessons tests. Another thing I did the recent 2 or 3 days was to configure a FreeBSD server who was going to host a website it was required the server to have Apache, PHP, MySQL and Qmail.Configuring Apache, PHP, MySQL on was pretty straight forward. The real problem occured when I tried to install Qmail from ports. I followed a freebsd qmail tutorial and at the end I was not happy with the qmail installation. After that I tried using the FreeBSD qmail toaster. But again I should say that FreeBSD qmail toaster is a total mess. Then I decided to go in another direction and tried to install qmail following the qmailrocks method I’m not really sure if I did everything the way I had to because I was really in a hurry to start a working SMTP server to send and receive mails. At the end I used a lot of custom configuration files and daemontools+qmail-spamcontrol+vpopmail ports in a ways I use on few of the other Qmails I administrate. Thanks God everything worked just fine and now I’m happy to have another functional qmail server on FreeBSD.END—–
Today in the afternoon mitko has called me and we went for a coffee afterward we went to a place out of the city where I was practicing in driving after maybe 40 minutes I drived his car (Audi A4) to the near village and we ate Izida’s wuffle icecreams. Towards evening I went to my cousin Zlatina’s furniture shop and had a nice talk with them. They were in the Netherlands and in France and they visited Disneyland. They narrated about their experience in disneyland and shared how cool disneyland is, another thing they told me about is the Belgium capital Brussel. They said it’s a terrible place to be and it’s full of arabs and gipsies and it’s the dirtiest city they have ever seen. Now in the eveningI just checked the elive website because I wanted to know what kind of dock is included in the distro and I came a cross an interesting adobe flash video player alternative. It’s called flowplayer Check it out Here That’s mostly how my day passed. Now Probably I’m going to watch Starwars Episode “V” movie after which I’m going to bed.END—–
I just checked the little handy prog which strenghtens in finding burned pixels, I decided to mirror the lcdtest since the official maintainer website is down. Here is the file itself lcdtest_1.08.orig.tar.gz .END—–
Today it was a pretty psycho day for me. I had a bit of work at the same time I was too lazy the whole day. I haven’t prayed seriously for 2 days and my unbelief is pretty serious. I should thank God for still granting me his grace although I don’t deserve it. A big part of the day My psychic was under a big stress and pressure, also my physical condition was pretty bad during the whole day. At 6:30 I went to my driving lessons. Right now I’m reading in google and still tweakening and configuring my thinkpad laptop today I tested it with external display after following the instructions of thinkpadwiki it played just fine. In order to do that it was required to add some lines into xorg.conf and create a small script which is mapped to my fn+f7 key. The script itself is presented Here . Another nice script I found on the gentoo’s wiki was controlling the thinklight, check it out mirrored here what the script do is turn on/off the think light. In order to check if you have enabled external display properly I used the command xrandr -q, there is also a nice gui tool which may be used it’s called grandr. I decided to publish my xorg.conf conf which works fine with my Thinkpad r61 8943 DTG I’ll be glad if that’s of use to somebody out there download it here . Recently I needed a way to check the Motherboard name of a Linux machine remotely and after a bit asking in irc.freenode.net and doing individual research online I got a program that is of use it’s called dmidecode. In order to gather hardware information of the machine all I had to do was simply type the command and check it’s output. In the city center of the town there was a Korean dancing Christian group who were gathered there praising Jesus wearing shirts “Jesus Loves”, it was a nice thing to see there are still people who belief in our Lord Jesus. I should say I’m in a big temptation one step away from falling away from faith, I pray to God that he strenghtem my faith and heal my body and use me as a sign that he still reigns over the Universe and it’s still his will what is happening and will happen with this dying world.END—–
