Globe DSL problem PDF Print E-mail
Written by William Villanueva   
Sunday, 10 June 2007
Our globe dsl is down for the past couple of days but I have problems calling up their support (9198888). Using a PLDT line to call their support is almost impossible. If the line is not busy, I get disconnected while waiting for their technical support to answer. With the dsl line being down, even the globelines phone no longer works.

Maybe there are less people calling in on Sundays as I was able to get connected today.

After reporting the problem, I got the standard routine of turning the modem off then on again. When that did not work, the girl told me to turn off the modem for about an hour for the line to "reset". Asking for an explaining, I got a vague reply about interference on the line and it takes around 45 minutes for it to clear up. Huh?

Taking the opportunity of being able to talk to their support, I also inquired about our unstable connection. The response was about interference on the line, particularly because of the distance.

Hey, I have not much any choice so we tried it that way. I turned off the unit and came back to check after 2 hours. But still nothing. So I called their tech support again. After telling them its my second call, that's the only time they said that they will have their engineers check the line. Asking for details, I was told that they'll check their equipments and if it doesn't work, then will have someone come over to check the terminal.

Well, coming back after 6 hours, the internet connection is up. I guess the problem must be somewhere with their hardware.

playerFLV test PDF Print E-mail

playerFLV is for playing flash video files.

The problem though is that the file need to be uploaded to a specific directory, particularly /public_html/mambots/content/playerflv. I'm sure the parameters below are correct but seems to be a bug somewhere that the player is complaining of only 3 parameters.

Not enough parameters! You must have 5 parameters separated by "|" : e.g. {playerflv}290|140|false{/playerflv}

A test of moseasymedia plug-ins for playing videos.

The problem with this plug is is that it will slowly load the file but you can't see anything. And there is no controls to pause or reply the file. You will notice that your browser is downloading so if you want to see this, you'll just have to wait.

Migrated Mambo 4.6.2 to Joomla 1.0.12 PDF Print E-mail
Written by William Villanueva   
Tuesday, 05 June 2007
Got my hands dirty and decided to migrate my mambo cms to joomla.

Though there had been instructions on how to migrate from Mambo 4.5.2 to Joomla 1.0, there's nothing on migrating Mambo 4.6.

I've decided to test the migration on my own site as I need to migrate the other sites that I maintain to the new one primarily because the Gallery component no longer works with Mambo.

I've followed the basic instructions on migrating to Joomla but encountered problems with the upgrading of the sql. Aside from this, the other problem is that I've installed Mambo using Fantastico so I can't just install Joomla on the root directory. In order to do this, I had to manipulate the fantastico records which is found in /home//.fantasticodata.
