I got notified that my blog was not accessible for a while. Seems that at least recent firefox versions somehow changed their behavior in what is send in the HTTP-header. This caused an Apache RedirectMatch rule to trigger, which denies access to some parts of the blog for some users.
The WP-login, WP-dashboard, and logged-in users where not affected by this, so if you have some custom rules which deny access to your blog, make sure you make a test of your blog when logged-out.
The reason for our problems with the phone @Work (see related posts) is known now. The company paying for the phone lines changed the tax number (fallout of a requirement to make business with banks here), informed the 2 phone companies they are using about it, got a bill from one with the old tax number and from the other one with the correct tax number, informed the phone company which used the old number again, got again a bill with the wrong tax number, informed them again, … until the phone company cut the line (paying the bill while there is the wrong tax number on it seems to cause big problems later in the tax/money handling chain).
So there a several kinds of phone companies here. Those which want to make business with customers (e.g. Verizon in LU), and those which do not (e.g. P&T in LU).
Let us wait and see when we get working phone lines and from whom… 🙂
Today I had the time to have a look at the problem I have to pass the value of the GD_LIB variable from CUPS to ghostscript: CUPS is setting this variable on its own and thus overriding my setting. 🙁
It seems CUPS is not checking if I have my own GS_LIB variable and adding its own path to the already set one. That is bad.
