What El Capitan Broke

Located in:

For my own memory, I'm listing things that upgrading to El Capitan broke in my dev environment. (All these were working before the upgrade.)

Profileophobia

Located in:

Or, perhaps "Revealophobia"? I was wondering whether there's a word for that feeling of, "Oops, I just clicked an advertising link or googled for something I don't really care about and now Google thinks I'm a fan of [insert product or service here]." "Misinterpreted-o-phobia"?

Use an Ad Blocker

Located in:

In Estonia, newspaper websites are generally cesspools of animated gifs and flash banners. I have been using an ad blocker for so long I had somewhat forgotten how these pages look in their natural state. I did a screenshot comparison of a page with and without an ad blocker. See for yourself.

I need a better camera

Located in:

Märt Matsoo windsurfing on Weller's Bay

As you can see from this grainy pic, the conditions on Weller's Bay can get pretty fun. (note the white caps in the distance) The problem is that if I try to capture some of it with my camera, the result is less than spectacular. Compounding the problem is the fact that our beach is quite sheltered and you don't hit clean wind until you're at least half a kilometre out.

Clicking in Views got Ajax Error Description 0

Located in:

I was running into an irritating problem where trying to update some Views properties would result in a javascript alert with an error like this:

The page at https://local-dev.domain.com says:

An error occurred at http://local-dev.domain.com/pespall/admin/build/views/ajax/display/pesap....

Error Description: 0:

Not only was the error irritating, but it prevented me from making changes in the Views interface so I couldn't do my work. My apache log would have corresponding lines like this:

How about that! I'm a Drupal association member.

Attention IE user!

It turns out you are using an outdated browser and my site might look a bit weird for you. (images are off colour, text gets cut off, layout is wacky) This is because your browser does not implement web standards. Please consider an upgrade.

Alternatively, you can try other browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera or Apple's Safari. Every web developer on the planet will thank you! (and that's not really an exaggeration)
