A shift in my vision

After I got my new glasses after my eye exam back on February 8th, things were great...but gradually they started getting back again, which was some what distressing. Especially since I had also gotten that call about the results of the Retinal Thickness Analyzer (?) showing some thinning and that I needed to plan a follow up test in about 6 months. At first the vision would start getting bad as I was heading home from work, and it subtle...though it would get pretty bad about mid evening.

But, then it was starting to get pretty bad around mid afternoon at work, so I decided I needed to get my eyes rechecked. In the inbetween time of making the appointment and the appointment today, I now feel that my vision starts getting bad before I leave for work, sometimes wonder if I should even bother (though I end up going in anyways and struggle until quitting time...)

So here's the next entry for my prescription progression...

Nov 2003: OD -5.00 -1.00 075       OS -8.00
Apr 2005: OD -4.25 -1.00 080       OS -7.00 -0.75 045
May 2006: OD -4.50 -1.00 055       OS -6.50 -1.00 035
Apr 2008: OD -5.25 -1.00 060       OS -7.25 -1.00 025
Aug 2009: OD -5.00 -0.50 050       OS -7.00 -1.25 030
Oct 2010: OD -5.50 -0.75 050 +1.25 OS -7.00 -1.00 040 +1.25
Nov 2011: OD -5.50 -0.75 050 +1.50 OS -7.00 -1.00 040 +1.50
Feb 2013: OD -4.50 -0.75 040 +1.50 OS -6.75 -0.75 010 +1.50
Jun 2013: OD -5.25 -1.00 060 +1.75 OS -7.00 -0.75 040 +1.75

Somehow my eyes are close to back to where they were in Nov 2011...

Nov 2011: OD -5.50 -0.75 050 +1.50 OS -7.00 -1.00 040 +1.50
Jun 2013: OD -5.25 -1.00 060 +1.75 OS -7.00 -0.75 040 +1.75

There's a slight change in the right eye, and even less of a change in the left eye....reading power another step up....

Seems a really strange jump and not really sure how to explain it. In what feels like an unusually rarity in my life, there hadn't been any medication changes from when I started having problems last fall to no, and no new diagnosis....though the latest problem that I've yet to receive a diagnosis for started mid-October....and it in November that my vision started getting bad (though with LISA and my mom's 70th birthday coming up, and thinking that I wanted to wait until I had FSA money...I had put off getting the eye exam. Plus it wasn't as bad as it has been lately...

As to why the shift...they had done a cornea surface mapping as they have done in all previous exams....and in comparison...my cornea surface was much more pointed in February while my current surface is similar to how it was back in November 2011. Not really sure how that came to be though. But, Optometrist said he would order up new lenses and that there would be no charge. Hopefully, they'll be able to get new lenses already pre cut for my glasses, as these are now my only pair....not having kept any of my old pairs this time around given the big change. (and not yet having gotten around to getting a second pair, because around when I was starting to think that I should get them...was when my vision started getting bad....)

Not sure where I'm at on getting a second pair now....will probably shoot for getting them before the upcoming NN Conference for sure.

Hopefully its not some kind of periodic variation, possibly similar to the variation in my sleep....which appears to still exist even with my Narcolepsy being pretty well controlled with medication now.

Upgraded tardisi.com to zenphoto-1.4.4.8

What a pain that upgrade was....it kept change files and directories to really weird permissions. Like setting perms on index.php to 0, or themes directory and the themes/default directory to 311 (d-wx--x--x), and changing the parameter for CHMOD_VALUE to an $conf['CHMOD'] which is undefined...from its previous value of 0755. There were other places it had changed to perms to 0, etc. It was also complaining that it wanted log files to be 0600, but they are set to 0600...except for debug.log which it had changed to 0.

Eventually, I cleaned up the mess and as soon as I got the setup to show the go button, I clicked....ignoring the other warnings...such as mysql with hosting provider meets minimum requirements but not preferred. or that it thinks files already set to strict perms is wrong and that I should set them to strict (which was part of why things were being changed to no perms at all....)

Things seem to be working again.

I think I should get back to hunting down photos and filling in the empty albums, and see if other photo sets should go up....

amd[###]: No map entry for <old_share>

For almost a year, every 3 seconds in /var/log/daemon.log there are two lines:

amd[####]: No map entry for <old_share1>
amd[####]: No map entry for <old_share2>

Every now and then, I would spend time hunting around my filesystem trying to figure out what part of amd might still be holding onto the old information...its not in any of the config files and not in any of its directories, its not making symlinks for it anywhere.

I was about finally submit and try asking on a mailing list....when while I was compiling how I did things into the message, I expanded my search to make really sure that there weren't any lingering references....when I found that I had two symlinks in my homedir pointing to the old shares.

Once I removed those symlinks....the messages stopped.

I guess the gam_server process that is watching my home directory was polling those symlinks every 3 seconds....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
