Word Press Still Rocking

Quick status update on the migration to WordPress: I’m still tweaking, but the site is coming back. Lots of the rendering quirks should be gone at this time. XHTML validation should work for most pages. Kitten’s Spaminator royally kicks butt. Very good spam protection. Seems to be quite a few useful plugins. Mobile support seems […]

Jay Allen takes a break and the Internet Chokes

Jay Allen takes a break, and myself, and many others are being pounded by spammers. His last update seems to have been 2004-10-30 16:18:38+01:00. Since then, it’s been a nightmare. At least 50 since I went to bed last night (at 2:00 AM). Now at 10:00 (no morning classes, so I slept in until 9:00), […]

A curious note about MovableType 3.x

A curious note on Jay Allen’s Blog: If you run a non-profit multi-author blog (or any type that requires payment) you should contact 6A to get better (read: perhaps $0) licensing terms. They’ve asked people to do that because they aren’t in the business of milking those who are doing good and interesting things but […]

MovableType 3.1

Sweet, perhaps blogging won’t suck for much longer. Looks like MovableType is working on some stuff. Some things l think are pretty interesting: Dynamic PHP publishing, controllable on a per-template basis: You can control whether you publish a dynamic or static page on a per-template basis, letting you balance the publishing and traffic for your […]

MT 3.0 upgrade

Upgraded to MovableType 3.0 tonight. So far, smooth. I’ve got one question though: Anyone know of a hack to get MT to correctly encode HTML entities? Hence making & &? I’d appreciate any help. It’s an essential little hack if you expect any page generated by MT to validate. Other than that, seems good to […]

Movable Type 3.0?

Well MovableType 3.0 has been released. Not to thrilled about the new licensing. Not even sure if I should upgrade, or look at alternatives like WordPress, which looks really interesting. So I’m curious what other bloggers intend to do? Personally I wish SixApart went for a more developer, community friendly model. Release the source under […]

Update Movable Type, Blog Spam,

As the blogging community knows, MovableType (software that powers this blog) has been updated. I upgraded this morning, and applied a little patch to replace characters such as & with their HTML entities (so the validator doesn’t bark). If anyone notices an issue with the blog, please contact me and let me know. I don’t […]


Ben Goodger discussed the idea of making an XUL based Blog posting window. I’m currently working on it. Can be seen here. Far from done, but a great way to learn XUL! Quite impressive what one can do so easily. XUL is pretty cool. 😀

What’s Playing revamped (part 1)

I got around to modifying the “What’s playing” (left of the page). It now makes links out of the songs that have/are playing. Hopefully later today I will break it up so that the artist name becomes the search term (that should be much more accurate). Of course buying the song makes me some $$$, […]
