Minor archive changes, and stuff

I’ve spent the past hour or so trying to find something interesting to link to, and to be honest, I’ve failed miserably. Today hasn’t been that interesting – I spent most of my time reading copies of the Guardian that I never got around to reading. Although I was intending to go to the Computing Society launch night tonight I decided I was too tired (I’m having trouble keeping my eyes open even now, and it’s not even 11pm yet), and bearing in mind that I have to be up sharpish tomorrow some sleep be a good idea.
You may notice that I’ve changed the way archives are displayed on the sidebar; each month now shows how many entries are in it and links are now provided to the category archives. I’ll add these to the rest of the pages once I can get a successful rebuild – unfortunately it’s been timing out when building the individual archives recently. I don’t know whether it’s the server or MT itself – probably the server because it’s fine in the morning when the net is generally quieter – but either way it’s annoying.


  1. Try changing # EntriesPerRebuild 40 in the mt.cfg file and see if it helps the rebuilds.

  2. Hmmm… that might work. Actually last night’s rebuilt okay, but it’s worth a try, I guess. Thanks.
