MySQL server has gone away¶
watch_tim still sends “OperationalError (2006, ‘MySQL server
has gone away’)” messages.
Oho, ist der noch immer da? Die Erklärung (2014-06-02) scheint mir eigentlich recht plausibel. Ich habe soeben noch ein bisschen geändert. Mal sehen, ob es jetzt besser wird. Der Fehler ist nicht leicht zu testen, weil es ja ein timeout ist.
An Estonian friend (Ülle) has shown her interest to try Lino Così.
So I want to set up an Estonian demo site for her. New package
A fundamental problem is the list of Estonian places. We agree that
an accounting software should include an out-of-the-box list of cities
and villages with their zip codes. I would say that the national post
office is more or less authority on this topic. That’s why we have
lino.modlib.countries.fixtures.ee which needs a file
sihtnumbrid.csv which I used to download from Estonian post
office. I didn’t ask, but am pessimistic about getting their help for
making this database freely available. Meanwhile they changed their
name and reorganized their web site. The new site has a download page, but (1) it
doesn’t work for the moment and (2) it looks as if the file structure
is going to change. Should I wait until they manage their internal
problems, and then adapt my
to the new structure? Or is this the moment to start a project of
publishing a free table of Estonian places? The fact that I am not
allowed to include this file with Lino causes miscellaneous problems
(besides the most visible problem that users must download it
themselves). For example I cannot write unit tests based on this
data. Another question is: How does this integrate with Wikipedia who
certainly is another authority? The Estonian Wikipedia has done
considerable work on this
domain. But (at least for the moment) we cannot (easily) import this
information. Should I talk with Andres about this? But
before talking to anybody, shouldn’t I prepare something to make my
vision visible to others? Do we need something like The belref project, but
for Estonia? To be continued.
Milton’s questions in Lino Cosi app installation motivated me to do
some more work in the documentation. Also fixed some minor (but
fatal) bugs in
Most content was previously in
djangosite which I plan to merge back
into Lino some day.
