Hi all—here’s an update following my previous post asking for some WordPress advice: I pulled the trigger, and now all of the content from Jake.EditThisPage.com is ported over to JakeSavin.com. Amazingly it worked right the first time! When does that ever happen?
Most, if not all of the links into the old site now redirect to the right place here. For the moment they’re temporary redirects, but after a bit more testing I’ll make them permanent so they’ll get picked up by search engines and the like. And contrary to my initial fears, the problem with pages living at multiple URLs was able to be easily resolved by redirecting via mod_rewrite rules in my .htaccess file.
Next I’m going to write some code to export my Radio UserLand site to WXR (WordPress eXtended RSS) format, so I can merge that content in too. I know a lot more now than I did when I started this work with Manila, so it should be quite a bit easier. After that, a one-off exporter for my custom WebsiteFramework site, Jspace.org. That one goes way back to 1997!
Here are my photos from Game 7 of the 2002 World Series:
Livan Hernandez is the starting pitcher for the Giants.
Anderson lines to center for a catch by Lofton who doubles up Eckstein at 2nd, ending the bottom of the 1st inning.
Eckstein misses a ball up hit up the middle by Santiago in the top of the second, for the first hit of the game.
Snow hits a ball which drops into left-center for a single, moving Santiago to third, with one out.
Reggie Sanders sac-fly scores Santiago from third, to put the first run of the game on the board in the top of the 2nd.
Molina hits a ball to deep left which drops in for a double, scoring Spiezio from first, tying the game 1-1 in the bottom of the 2nd. The score would remain tied through the end of the 2nd.
Salmon gets hit on the hand by Livan Hernandez to load the bases with nobody out in the bottom of the third, starting up the Giants’ bullpen.
Anderson hits a three-run double down the line to right, taking the game to 4-1 Angels in the bottom of the 3rd.
Santiago blocks Anderson and tags him out at the plate for two outs in the bottom of the third. Molina would be forced out at first to end the inning.
Santiago hits a single into left-center after a walk to Bonds puts men on firts and second with one out in the top of the 4th.
Rueter strikes out Erstad to end the bottom of the 4th inning. Still 4-1 Angels.
Kirk Rueter, who came into the game pitching for the Giants in the bottom of the 4th allows no runs through the 4th and 5th innings.
JT Snow hits a double down the line to right in the top of the sixth, moving Santiago to third after a walk, but both would be stranded on base.
Rueter after Jeff Kent makes a diving catch on a line drive to the left of second base to end the bottom of the 6th inning.
Fernando Rodriguez strikes out Aurilia, Kent and Santiago, with a walk to Bonds after striking out Kent. Still 4-1 Anaheim after the top of the 8th.
Kenny Lofton swings at the first pitch from Troy Percival with two on and two out in the top of the ninth inning. Lofton represents the tying run. He pops out to center to end the game. Angels win Game 7 4-1, and take the 2002 World Series Pennant in seven games.
Here are my photos from Game 6 of the 2002 World Series. Unfortunately I couldn’t start ’till the fifth inning, but thanks to TiVo I was able to get decent shots of all the important moments from then ’till the end.
Here they are:
Appier after Dunston knocked him off the mound, with two out in the 5th.
Bonds’ long solo home run to bring the score to 4-0 San Francisco in the top of the 6th.
Russ Ortiz is totally on tonight through six.
Ortiz strikes out Salmon with two on in the bottom of the sixth. Like I said — he’s totally on tonight.
Scott Spiezio at bat against the new pitcher, Felix Rodriguez, has an eight-pitch at-bat, and hits one just out of the park to right-center, knocking in men on first and second and bringing the score from 5-0 to 5-3. Rodirugez would leave the game, bringing in Scott Eyre who would only last for one batter before Baker brought in Tim Worell.
Brendan Donnelly would come in to pitch for the Angels in the top of the eighth, walk Santiago after knocking him down twice, pop-out Snow, and strike out Dunston and Bell, despite his sloppy pitch location.
Erstad gets high-fives from his teammates after a solo home run bringing the Angels to within one.
Bonds can’t catch up to a ball hit by Glauss to deep left-center off a hanging breaking ball from Rob Nen, which scores two runs, bringing the Angels ahead 6-5.
Ninth inning: Troy Percival comes in to strike out Goodwin, pop out Lofton, and strike out Aurilia swinging. That’s a ballgame: Angels win 6-5.
Bell checks his swing for ball 1. Outside ball 2. Here we go…
Ball 3, and now a strike on the outside edge. Swing, and foul on the ground to left. Full count.
Bell flies out to left.
Still 3-0 Angles.
Top 5th — Angels

Salmon up. Strike 1 on the corner. High ball 1. Low ball 2. Come on! Outside ball 3 — full count. Struck him out. Good.
Anderson up. Popped to shallow left for a single.
Gloss at the plate. Strike 1. Inside, ball 1. Checks the runner at first. (Why?) Outside ball 2 — now 2-1. Grounder to short — double play.
That’s what I’m talkin’ about.
Bottom 5th — Giants — Tie game!
10/23/02; 7:11:11 PM by JES
Time to score some runs now. Play time is over. It’s three-nothing, and this is the World Fuckin’ Series, ok? Let’s go!
Rueter up — strike 1 and a foul — 0-2. Another foul. Way inside with the curve ball — 1-2. YES! Rueter has an infield single.
Here’s Kenny. Small-ball, Kenny — small-ball.
Insane bunt down the line. Gloss picked up the ball too soon — still on the line, and it’s fair. Killer!
Go Richie! Ball 1 low. Big swing — strike 1. Foul into the stands to left. 1-2. Arullia asks for time. And again. High towards the face. This is where Rich usually really shines.
YES! Into right — Rueter scores. Runners now at 1st and 3rd with nobody out.
Come on Kent — Don’t fuck it up now.
Foul. 0-1. Pop up into right. Lofton scores and Arullia moves to 2nd on an error, but Kent fails to impress again.
I think Arullia should have stayed at 1st. They’re walking Bonds.
Santiago — no double-plays ok? Ball 1.
YES, YES, YES! — Santiago singles to center. Arullia scores. Now first and second with one out, and a Tied game!
Snow pops out to right. No motion on the bases.
Sanders up with 2 outs. Strike 1. Big swing. 0-2. 1-2. Popped up to right falls foul.
Sanders still up 1-2, foul bouncer to left. Outside ball — 2-2. Swings at a slider — out. Inning over.
Top 6th — Angels
10/23/02; 7:30:00 PM by JES
Still in commercials. Hey! Looks like Jeff Cheney is blogging the game.
Lackey has had only two strike outs in 5 innings. We should be ahead by at least 3 if not more, looking at the number of people left on base. Santiago and Kent need to start hitting.
Spezio takes a strike and a ball. Fouled back, 1-2. Base hit to center.
Gil 0-1, pitch out, but no nibbles. Terrible bunt attempt, now 1-2. Another pitch out — what the f**? Now they check the runner. Strike him out already! Swing and a foul. Still 2-2. Swing and Reuter finally has a 2nd strike out. I know it’s not his style, but this should have been easier.
Ball 1 for Molina. Woah — double-play. Out of the inning.
Still tied 3-3 and the Giants are coming up. Here we go — let’s tie up the series!
Bottom 6th — Giants
10/23/02; 7:41:54 PM by JES
Ben Weber on the mound for the Angles.
Bell with a strike and a foul. 0-2. Outside for a ball. 90MPH fast ball inside, Bell touches it and stays alive. Foul to the left side on the ground. Another foul to the left. Shit — into the outfield on the 3rd base line, Bell goes for two and is tagged out. That should have been a single.
Goodwin is pinch-hitting; Reuter is done for the night. Low for a ball. Inside. Now 3-0. Watches strike 1, and gets an inside pitch showing bunt for a walk.
Here comes Lofton. Strike 1. Pitch-out: no takers. Goodwin goes — steals second, and the throw wasn’t near in time.
Now 1-2 on Lofton. Outside: 2-2. Fly deep to center — Goodwin goes to 3rd.
Arullia up with two outs. Strike 1. Let’s go Richie! Damnit — caught on a line drive to 3rd.
Still tied 3-3, and going to the 7th.
Top 7th — Angels
10/23/02; 7:52:15 PM by JES
Rodriguez in for the Giants.
First pitch to Palmero is a strike. Big swing for a strike. And another — one away.
Eckstein. 1-1. 2-1. Popped up and Kent catches it.
Erstad up — ball 1. Go Felix. Snow stops a grounder down the 1st base line, and throws out Erstad to Rodriguez at 1st.
Still 3-3. Here comes the kid with the frickin’ insane slider to face Kent, Bonds and Santiago.
Kent can’t hit him. Bonds has a chance. Santiago might walk. We’ll see.
Bottom 7th — Giants
10/23/02; 8:02:44 PM by JES
Time for someone to set Francisco Rodriguez on his ass. He’s on the mound for the Angels, and is 5 and 0 in the post-season. That slider is the wickedest I’ve seen.
Kent up. How will he approach this kid?
Strike 1 on the corner. Kent swings at the slider and misses big. Outside, 1-2. The “Fox Virtual Manager” says 75% of people think the Angels should pitch to Bonds.
Kent out on strikes, swinging.
Bonds up. Watches strike 1. On the ground and past the catcher. 1-1. Ball outside, 2-1.
Bonds swings at a low pitch, tries to check, but can’t. 2-2. Grounder to 1st for a force. Same thing the kid did to Bonds last time.
Santiago up, 2 outs. 2-0 — now 2-1 on a foul. Watches strike 2. Swing and a foul back. Popped out to left.
Man this kid is good. 20 strikeouts for 4 walks(!!).
Top 8th — Angels
10/23/02; 8:12:28 PM by JES
Dan Schafer thinks it will go extra innings. What do we do when Felix gets tired? Rob Nen, but only for an inning says Dan on IM. Oy. I’m trying not to think about it.
Whoops — so much for that. Worell is on the mound for the Giants.
First pitch ball to Salmon. 91MPH fastball hign — Salmon swings and misses. Go Tim! Strike 2 on the inside corner. Popped up for Lofton in center who makes a running catch at the track.
Anderson takes a ball, but swings at a change up for a strike. Lined on the ground to Snow at first who takes it to the bag. Two out. Yes!
Glaus takes ball 1. Strike 1. Fouled left: 1-2. Big swing fouls it back. Popped to Bonds in left. Inning over.
Still 3-3. Starting to have heart palpitations.
Bottom 8th — Giants
10/23/02; 8:23:23 PM by JES
Snow gets a single to right. Lead off man is on.
Sanders coming up. Bunt attempt gets away from the catcher and Snow takes 2nd. Count is 1-0 and man on 2nd. Wow!
Bunt attempt foul: 1-1. Way outside: 2-1. Nervous faces in the Angels dugout. Sanders pops up foul, and Spizio makes an excellent diving catch in front of the Angels’ dugout.
Bell at the plate takes a ball.
Ground ball up the center — Snow scores from 2nd. Throw is off and late. Bell on at 1st!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
Giants are up 4-3!
Now that we’ve got a run, we can bring in Nen next inning, which means it’s pinch-hitter time. 1-0, 2-0, 3-0, 3-1. Can he walk?
Full count. Strike-out-throw-out double play. Inning over.
Nen: Shut them down!!!
Top 9th — Giants (up by 1)
10/23/02; 8:35:41 PM by JES
Dan Schafer says “I figure Nen will make it ‘interesting.’ He always does.”
Rob Nen, Giants’ closing pitcher coming in. 1.29 ERA. Buck says he’s had a little shoulder stiffness. Record when leading after 8 innings, 7-0.
Spizio up: Strike 1. Strike 2. Popped out to foul territory for David Bell.
Kennedy singles to right. Shit. Dan’s right. Nen’s going to make it interesting.
Fulmer fouls to the stands in deep left. Big swing — strike 2.
Grounder to Richie, tags 2nd and throws to 1st for a double play. Game Over!!!
The series is even at 2. Tomorrow’s game will be very interesting, and I’ll be there!
(Screenshots in a bit… I have to breathe for a few minutes. )
A bunch of friends of mine and I are trying to score tickets to the World Series, but we’re trying to get through on the phone and we’re not sure it will be possible.
First, we’re not sure we can get through at all. I tried calling some of the tickets.com numbers and they’re already busy hours ahead of when the tickets go on sale.
Second, there are only 7,000 tickets available. Chances are fairly good (or bad) that we’ll get through only to find that the games are all sold out.
So I have an offer — and I’m good for it. If you can find tickets, or if you have tickets that you can’t or don’t want to use, I’ll pay a substantial amount more than the “face-value” of the ticket price to go to these games. The more tickets the better. My goal is to get me and a few friends to all three games.
I don’t want to be too specific about money, but let’s just say that rates are negotiable. 😉
I have no idea what this means, but I was just chosen as Geek of the Week for the week of May 19, 2002. Funny thing is that the site they’re pointing at is my first weblog, J-Space, which I haven’t updated since October, 1998.
It might be interesting to some that J-Space was the site I recovered from Google’s cache in Janurary of last year, after a bad hard drive crash — the second in three months. Leander Kahney wrote a story about it for Wired News, which still generates hits to both that site and this one, to this day.
(I later found a nearly up-to-date backup of the J-Space database, so I was able to fully restore it, images and all, but Google was still very helpful.)
Update 12:20 AM: Now it appears that it may be a router issue. This may have been caused by a misconfiguration on the router that was masked by the fact that the server we used to use was running an earlier version of the Linux kernel…
Update 9:45PM: We’ve ruled out the firewall as the source of the trouble. The current suspect is the version of Samba that we’re using. I’m about to attempt an upgrade, and see if that fixes it. More in a little bit…
We’re still working on problems with Samba sharing to our Windows 2000 server. We’ve determined that the Windows computer can resolve the Samba server by name, so WINS and LMHOSTS are no longer variables. Now we suspect that the firewall configuration on the Linux machine is not allowing traffic across the ports required for SMB filesharing. The Linux server is using ipchains for its firewall.
Here’s a question for ipchains experts: What command would I run on the Linux command line to determine whether ports 137-139 are accessible from a specific IP address, on a different subnet than the Linux server?
I know how to do ipchains -L but I don’t fully understand how to understand the output. Also, if there’s another way to tell whether these ports are accessible, I’d like to know about it.
Our static server is a Linux machine that runs Samba, to allow our Windows servers to create files to be served by Apache on the Linux server.
We have Windows computers in two separate subnets, which all need to be able to connect to the Linux server via Samba. The Windows computers in the same subnet can connect just fine, but the ones in the other subnet can’t.
Question for Samba experts: How do we configure Samba so that the Windows compuers in subnet A can mount a Samba share on the Linux machine that’s running in subnet B?
If you know the answer, please send email to email@example.com, or post a reply in my discussion group. Thanks!
