Partitions of Poland

The Partitions of Poland were three partitions of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth that took place toward the end of the 18th century and ended the existence of the state.

MediaWiki: Manual:Upgrading : mediawiki-1.30.0 -> mediawiki-1.31.1

My web space provider performed a few server upgrades recently. They cause(d) problems with my MediaWiki and my WordPress installations. Before contacting their helpdesk I upgraded my MediaWiki installation to 1.31.1, and I also fixed an issue with my …/skins/common/images/wiki.png . Bad enough I did not take a note, whether my …/wiki.png problem started getting shown with the web space provider’s server upgrades. Now I am back to the default logo, and everything is fine again.

my web space provider performed a PHP upgrade, and my WordPress installation started complaining about sunrise.php

From that (actually quite old) article I somehow got the impression, some SUNRISE setting in my wp-config.php could be in my way. I do not have any sunrise.php, and I just uncommented the resp. setting, and everything was fine.

I guess I had once needed that setting, but bad enough I had not left a comment as an explanation.

Maybe WordPress (more or less) silently performed some upgrade itself, and sort of caused the problem “itself”, but I don’t know. Just mentioning this possibility here for completeness.

Hector Berlioz: La damnation de Faust

The Faust story should actually be quite sad, but this show was somehow a rather refreshing French thing as opposed to the German operas I saw recently. Don’t get me wrong! All of them excellent music, but this French thing was really more “colourful” and enjoyable.
