Updated wordpress

I just updated my wordpress installation from the 2.0 branch to the ‘new’ 2.5.1 version. So for the time being it will look a bit bland and boring, until I get time to find/make a new theme.

It seems that all the posts and comments migrated correctly, the permalinks seem to work, and most images and media files have been taken along. If there are any broken links or you find any issues, please report them as comments to this posting.

Update may 19: Switched to a different theme, don’t know how long I’ll keep this one, but it looks a lot nicer then the default, and it is different from default, so that’s good 😉

Update may 20: Added a Fring-me sidebar widget, you can now see if my phone is online, and if it is, chat (free) with me over my phone/fring.
Fixed the audio-files/flash-audio-player

Xvideo not displaying full-screen

This week I had a problem with mplayer on my ubuntu machine. Playing a movie at full-screen would only display it at 1024×768, while my desktop was at 1280×1024. Other XV and GL applications would also only use the top-left most 1024×768.
This was caused by Xorg detecting two displays, the connected Acer TFT, but also a LVDS (Laptop screen). This machine being a server/desktop system, there obviously is no laptop panel, but the gnome resolution applet would tell me there was.

The solution to this problem was to tell xrandr to disable the lvds output. I have not rebooted the system yet to see if this setting sticks (or maybe if that would have solved it in the first case) but I’ll report on that as soon as I know it.

The image below shows what it looked like in the gnome resolution applet (only this time from my laptop as the problem is fixed on the desktop)
