reCAPTCHA and Chrome

Was using this RSVP form with Google Chrome and found the reCAPTCHA was telling me I repeatedly failed the Turing test. After the sixth time, I decided it might be my browser, so I tried it in Firefox which worked fine.

Curious, I went looking for a possible problem between reCAPTCHA and Chrome. According to a post there, the Transitional XHTML DOCTYPE is the cause. Changing that DOCTYPE to Strict ought to fix the issue. Given the audience, I doubt there is anyone else using Chrome to fill it. So fixing it probably isn’t worth it to them.

Interesting. I’ll have to look into issues with Chrome and the XHTML Transitional DOCTYPE.

In Need of a Sedative

Have not slept well the past week… I have been the on call DBA. So I have the pager. Monday we joked things seem to be worse when I have it. Well… this week has been a shining example.

Monday: OVIEW had issues starting at 5:15-ish. I had seen that behavior before and applied the previous fix. The monitoring showed a half dozen recoveries. So I went home. Well, on the way home it got much, much worse. So bad it was actually unavailable… but for only a couple minutes. 🙁 I didn’t go to bed until 1am because I was trying to figure out what went wrong.

Wednesday: Starting at 6pm, redux of Monday. Amy worked on that for me, but I ended up staying up until 1am again looking at logs trying to figure out what was the issue.

Thursday: “Emergency” restart of OVIEW to be more proactive. Didn’t get to sleep until 3am.

Saturday: A node in OVIEW crashed. (Middle of the day so thankfully no loss of sleep.)

Sunday: A node in OVIEW failed its 3am restart. This might signal the same cause of the issue in Monday and Wednesday.

Ugh.

Thankfully I get to hand off the pager to a coworker tomorrow.

Armed

Devon Gundry – “Armed” from Justin Baldoni on Vimeo.

First heard Devon at the Tennessee Baha’i School back in 2007. I bought his CD. It gets a spin when I need to contemplate. This one like so much of his music makes use of a small part of Baha’u’llah’s Writings. In this case from a prayer for protection….

Armed with the power of Thy name nothing can ever hurt me, and with Thy love in my heart all the world’s afflictions can in no wise alarm me.

Lives Intertwined

Minister
Britt and Adrianne with Minister

Had fun at brittsaqt and aya1081 ‘s wedding on Saturday. It was my first time pretending to know what I am doing with a camera and tripod. Aya1081 is happy with the results, so I am happy. This was first time anyone has ever asked me to do a wedding, so I ended up reading a lot about what to do over the past few months. Still, I came into it without really knowing what I am doing even so much as directing people. (Normally I just hang out and take pictures of what I want.) Photographing more weddings and learning from my mistakes will make me better.
