With a forced upgrade of my provider from PHP 7.4 to PHP 8.1 miniflux v1 did not work anymore with Reeder 5. After trying to correct all issues with phan, I decided to switch to a freshRSS install that has even a more modern Google API.
and setting PHP more verbose with
error_reporting(E_ALL | E_STRICT)
While it was quite straightforward to replace all “each” with “for each”, or “read_exif_date” with “exif_read_date” the main issue were unquoted “$_SERVER” variables and functions that need to be checked for missing variables
$rows= (is_countable($ret) ? count($ret) : 0
The biggest problems came by Nextcloud update to version 25. It turns out that there is a file limit of 262.144 of my internet provider.
Any Nextcloud update always needs about 30.000 files. Whenever it encounters any other error, a restart produces another 30.000 files, basically killing my account.
In contrast to the documentation the issue is also not at the root nextcloud updater directory but in the data directory.
Recently I encountered this strange error message in WordPress when trying to write a new post. Maybe I haven’t done any major changes, only removed a security plugin recently while the whole system is continuously updated.
Disabling all plugins and reverting to the standard twentyfifteen theme did not help. Inspection of post.php also did not show anything unusual (the indicated line number was probably wrong due to several includes). Googling the error message also did not help as these lead only to site specific problems. Continue reading Track down the “no object… error in post.php”→
Retractions are increasing anytime I look around retraction watch. A new PNAS paper now has the most thorough analysis of retractions:
A detailed review of all 2,047 biomedical and life-science research articles indexed by PubMed as retracted on May 3, 2012 revealed that only 21.3% of retractions were attributable to error. In contrast, 67.4% of retractions were attributable to misconduct, including fraud or suspected fraud (43.4%), duplicate publication (14.2%), and plagiarism (9.8%) …fraud has increased ∼10-fold since 1975.
The idea might not be new – we already diluted DNA already a decade ago ( see this 2003 paper ). A new Nature paper by Peters ( Accurate whole-genome sequencing and haplotyping from 10 to 20 human cells… ) now shows that diluting DNA into 384 wells, adding unique tags, and pooling again before sequencing everything on a Hiseq, will result in an enormous reduction of sequencing errors – a problem that we are fighting now for a year. IMHO the paper isn’t primarily about the low number of cells that can be sequenced, but also about error reduction in WGS. The two key facts are certainly
To ensure complete representation of the genome we maximized the input of DNA fragments for a given read coverage and number of aliquots. Unlike other experimental approaches this resulted in low- coverage read data for each fragment in each of the wells a fragment is found in.
