The flying agoraphobic goes solo!

It’s not easy learning to fly when you have travel phobias and chronic fatigue… As a few of you who know me will realise, I have gone out of my way to conquer things starting last year by learning to fly microlights at Hadair Microlight Airsports, at Halfpenny Green Airport. It’s been a lot of fun, and very challenging. Thanks to my Buddhism for helping me to maintain a slightly calmer state of mind, and to Dr Sarah Myhill for her chronic fatigue mitochondria support regime I am continuing to steadily improve, so that I can now have a bit of energy left over from my work day to enjoy some leisure activities.

I must say a huge thank you to Les, my instructor. He has the patience of a saint, and one of the most calming influences I could ever hope for in the air. I must also give my continued thanks to Steve Wilkes, owner of Hadair for letting me loose in his microlight aircraft, and his own brand of encouragement (more akin to a boot up the arse, but sometimes it’s required!) and for running the most friendly – yet serious – flight school.

Stopping Pushing “47 GETDISKUSED blah” for UID: 47 messages in Cpanel logwatch

Just a quick hint here to stop your daily logwatch email being filled up with messages like this:

Cp-Wrap[3624]: Pushing "47 GETDISKUSED enquiries" to '/usr/local/cpanel/bin/eximadmin' for UID: 47 
Cp-Wrap[3624]: CP-Wrapper terminated without error

Just go to the /etc/logwatch/conf/ignore.conf file, and add the following lines:

^Cp-Wrap.*?Pushing .*?GETDISKUSED.*?UID: 47
^Cp-Wrap.*?CP-Wrapper terminated without error

That will filter out those annoying lines. Simples!
