Multilingual date formats

Recently while poking around in the source code, I noticed what looked like the beginnings of some support for presenting dates in multiple languages (see ljlang.pl). I'm curious to know if anyone else is working on this, and how it is planned to work with the current style system.

Wendy

Wendy is now up and running, processing web requests. The interesting thing about Wendy is that it has no public ethernet interface (it does, but we didn't plug it in).

Bebe is setup locally, but not installed yet. Bebe will be internal network only.

Stan is doing NAT for Wendy and Bebe, but in the future Kyle could too, should Stan die.

Dormando and I are getting aggressive with firewall rules. Somebody syn-flooded us last week with 60 Mbit of traffic for a few minutes. Thanks... that was fun. (assholes) The annoying thing is they seemed to spoof their source address to be inside the network, so they made our internal network get slightly busy too. Some simple rules could have avoided a lot of the problems.

The main annoyance was all Kenny's mbufs getting used up. Evan didn't look at mrtg and rebuilt the kernel, thinking we were hitting a max connection problem.

Anyway, I'll post more about this later.

Also --- I'm going to setup a database server on kenny today (after a nap?) that'll do the directory search stuff. That way if it crashes, it only slows down the directory search, not the whole site.

Statistics

I have seen on occasion various words being mentioned about statistics on journals.

What I'd like to ask is this: what (if any) work is done on this at the moment?

Reason I say is that I've done a few unix/perl/sed/awk scripts that currently work on the exported files, to give me things like average words per entry, words per month, average entries per day, longest entry, etc etc.

I guess I'm just interested in number crunching, and pretty graphs. :)

Apologies if this isn't the right place.
