UzziSoft Re-design

Thursday, April 27th, 2006

I’ve been working on re-designing UzziSoft. I’ve found a nice design layout and have been working on changing most pages to the design. I hope you all think it’s better than the old design :P. The new design is up.


Random Sig Script Large Sigs Redireciton Active

Sunday, April 23rd, 2006

The Random Sig Script Large Sigs redirection is now active. All requests will go to
I think that’s about all the redirections I need to make before moving the whole domain over to Dreamhost which won’t be for a few months.


UzziSoft Userbars

Sunday, April 23rd, 2006

I’ve been looking at lots of userbars around so I decided to make one for UzziSoft. There are three UzziSoft userbars available below.

Missing Random Sigs Fixed

Friday, April 21st, 2006

As I knew there would be some missing MySQL entries and files which I didn’t transfer. Looking through the analog 6.0 stats helped find them. Only 5 jpeg files missing with some directories missing as well. Luckly they are all fixed now.

Random Sig Script Redirection Enabled

Thursday, April 20th, 2006

Well that was quite easy. Just edited the .htaccess file in the randomsigscript/ folder and added this line:
Redirect /

And now all requests redirect to
It was that simple 🙂

Test Moving of the Random Sig Script

Thursday, April 20th, 2006

After deciding it was time to test moving all the directories, files and MySQL Database of the Random Sig Script from to I went to work on backing up the folders and files from FTP.

It took a very long time, mainly because of all the FTP connection timeouts I was getting and all the names which contained symbols that made them not copy over. So after about 2 hours I managed to get most of all the directories and files. Next it was a simple PHP MyAdmin Export Database procedure and I was done.

Things were going fine so far until that is I decided, hey instead of uploading all these files and folders, I can .tar.gz them and upload that file onto the DreamHost server and un gzip and tar from there (if you don’t know DreamHost give you ssh access). After uploading the .tar.gz file and extracting all the files I thought everything would be fine. But I didn’t expect there to be just files and no folders. Turns out that no directories were created and all the files were just dumped into the main randomsigscript/ directory.

I was in trouble. I’d either have to remove each file by FTP or do a rm *. I choose the rm * option and then had to quickly restore the users who were using the’s jpeg files (only 4). Lesson learned, don’t use .tar.gz again without knowing that the directories are included.

Now I’ve just .zip’ed up all the files instead since I know that works and have extracted the zip file. Directories were created, woo.

Last thing to do was grab the .sql file from the backup and upload that to the server and that was that! All users Random Sig Scripts should now also work from

Next step is to redirect all the randomsigscript directory requests from to which I’ll work on later.



Text Colour Changed

Wednesday, April 19th, 2006

I’ve decided to change most of the UzziSoft font from white to greyish, so that it doesn’t look too bright to read. I’m hoping to change the text colour in the Random Sig Script some time later this week.


Download Spammed

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

As you may or may not know, we recently started mirroring several site downloads such as since we are hosting on another webhost (Dreamhost) and we are allowed 1 TB in bandwidth transfer.

There were some unusually large requests by a few IP address which ended up taking 285.57 gigabytes on the 12th, 73.27 gigabytes on the 13th and 223.93 gigabytes on the 14th. After that I had enough and decided to remove the entire mirrors directory to get rid of these ‘download abusers’.

Right now has done 870 GB out of 1024 GB. I’ve re-enabled the mirrors directory but only allowing the autopatcher folder to be accessed and only files under 30 MB can be downloaded. I might think about re-adding the other files next month.

Beginning of my Blog

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

Welcome all to the beginning of my Blog. I’m new to blogging so don’t expect me to know any of the rules or procedures (if there are any!).

I’ll mostly be covering news and other information which don’t get posted on the UzziSoft homepage since it’ll be too cluttered.
