[Gothic BC] New Feature: Tag Your Friends!

I've just finished adding a new feature: now logged-in users can tag their friends in pictures in the photo gallery. Once you have added someone to your friends list just use the "tag friends" link in the caption area of the photo you want to tag.

Escape Code Stripping in libxml2

There is a problem with the Drupal aggregator module stripping out HTML escape codes (i.e. &lt; &gt; & etc.) from RSS feeds when using PHP <= 5.2.6 with libxml2 >= 2.6.32.

This is due to an intentional change in the behaviour of libxml2 after version 2.6.32. Some sites suggest reverting to libxml2-2.6.30 - while this works as a temporary solution, it is no longer necessary or advisable.

Why I Like LAMP - Upgrading a Webserver

It was time to do an OS upgrade on a webserver I maintain that hosts a couple of reasonably active sites. The two most active sites on the server bring in about 12,000 unique visitors a month, with the two serving up about 4 million hits. Of course this is small potatoes compared to the really big boys, but between the two of them it is pretty much given that there is somebody hitting the server at any given moment and the demographics are such that there is really no reasonable time for the server to be down for any length of time.
