MediaWiki LocalSettings for Farmers

I’ve been running a MediaWiki farm at for a couple of years now hosting about a dozen wikis ranging from small to very large. Running a MediaWiki farm is a bit complicated and you can approach it a number of different ways. I recently pushed the settings that I use to run my farm into GitHub so others can see how I do it. The next step will be to also move the scripts that I use up, but those will be kept in another repository.

Hopefully this proves useful to others. It’s useful for me to finally have these very complicated settings (really code!) under version control.

WikiApiary Stickers

StickerMule had a great deal a couple of weeks ago so I had these fun WikiApiary clear vinyl stickers made. They really came out great!

If you want one for your laptop or whatever send me a note and I’ll put one in the mail.

Mayday Did It!

I’m very happy to be one of the over fifty-thousand backers of Mayday PAC.

Enjoying stage 2 with my viewing station all setup. Mini Jambox is critical addition.

(I wish I could watch the World Cup this easily without a cable subscription!)

Silly Faces




Having fun teaching Mazie and Tyler how to use a YoYo on vacation. Got myself a nice heavy one with low resistance and tons of spin.

Ice Cream Riot in Denver


When we are on vacation we tend to enjoy an afternoon ice cream stop and this afternoon we had the delight of experiencing Ice Cream Riot in Denver’s Northeast neighborhood. This shop is relatively new and the guy that owns it works the counter, makes all of the ice cream and experiments with a lot of interesting flavors.

We had Andes Mint, English Toffee and Fruit Loops ice cream! Given another visit I’d be trying the a milkshake!


The ice cream is ridiculously good. Super creamy, smooth, tasty. I think you could put pretty much anything in it and it would taste amazing. Asparagus Ice Cream anyone? I think it would probably be delicious if you started with the base ice cream he is using.


The shop has a great vibe. It feels like any craft coffee shop you might visit. Relaxed, sparse, clean, simple. All good stuff.


If your in Denver and are not lactose intolerant, get yourself here! I liked this place so much I actually posted a review on Yelp!


Love this geeky water bottle at Linger in Denver.
