Just in case you haven’t heard about heartbleed or like comic strip explanation. Bruce Schneier has a good run down on how screwed we all are including this link to the logs of a possible exploit half a year ago.
So I figured I better update my server. First off, I’m using an AWS instance to host the web site. I’m both proud and embarrassed. The system has been up for 11 months.
But it pretty much required a reboot to make sure everything was using the new libraries.
After that was done my wordpress installation was using the wrong hostname. Here are the tables I updated. The id, blog_id and table name wp_options are somewhat specific to my installation.
update wp_sitemeta set meta_value = 'https://peteware.com/' where meta_key = 'siteurl';
update wp_site set domain = 'peteware.com' where id = 1;
update wp_blogs set domain = 'peteware.com' where blog_id = 1;
update wp_options set option_value = 'http://peteware.com' where option_name = 'siteurl';
update wp_options set option_value = 'http://peteware.com' where option_name = 'home';
In line with an earlier post talking about the the scale of the solar system checkout if the moon were 1 pixel gives you a visceral feel for the size of the solar system. I only made it out to Saturn. It took a long, long time to scroll.
It makes you imagine how long an interplanetary trip would take. There is a lot of nothing. It was so boring just scrolling for a few minutes. Just black. No air.
Traveling from Earth to Mars would take about seven months.
Earth is at 150M km;
Mars is at 225M km.
Jupiter is a 13 month trip and is at the kilometer marker 750M. No rest stops.
