  • Filtering a Podcast Feed with Yahoo Pipes
    I like podcasts quite a bit, and one of my favorites for many many years (at least since 2004) has been IT Conversations. If I loved all their stuff, all I have to do it load up iTunes and subscribe. If I’m old school I can get the RSS feed link and do Advanced ->…
  • Random Affirmation
    Small project that, on click, loads new affirmations. A photo from Leah, some jQuery with AJAX, and voila. I like it. If anyone has suggestions for a “random thing of the day” type thing, please let me know. The JavaScript I code to attach the behavior is: $.ajax( {type: "POST" , url: "generate-affirmation.php" , beforeSend:…
  • Using tags: “Drawings”; How I use WordPress get_the_image()
    If you’re like me, maybe you have a pile of posts in your WordPress database. I have 3426 posts in here. It’s a giant database of stuff. Good stuff, bad stuff, short stuff, long stuff. Slicing and dicing that content in a way that makes sense, or that allows you to find what you have…

  • “Fun” with Gallery 1.5.3, 1.5.10, 2, 3RC1; Leahpeah photos
    I mentioned moving Leah over to WordPress a few days ago, and that went well. I’ve been migrating over her prior content and deleting unused content a bit since then. In rooting through the site, I came across this: … which we put in place when there were folks deeplinking some larger images on her…
  • Blogger FTP Migration Tool: Does not account for your images
    Blogger has done work to create a migration tool for Blogger FTP users and is doing great communication. You can move to a blogspot blog, (which you could do before) or change from self-hosting to being hosted by Blogger/Google by changing the DNS to point at Google’s servers. This is similar to how tumblr handles…
  • Fussy.org To WordPress
    The inestimable, very funny Eden Kennedy was also stuck with Blogger. So she and her over 1200 posts and 15000 comments (!) were stuck on Blogger without FTP. I’m proud to announce that in the main, things are moved over and working anew. I’ve done the redirects for old archives, though there are some custom…
  • Blog Migration, Lura.net
    Speaking of blog migrations from Blogger to WordPress, here’s a successful one: Initially Lura was hosted under Windows and IIS. PHP was installed on her former server, but it did not really respond appropriately and the various IIS/WordPress/”mod_rewrite” hacks did not seem to work. So I advised her to move to PHP/Apache. Things went pretty…
  • Migrating an old Blogger blog to WordPress
    I’m an expert now at migrating old Blogger Blogs. Google, the owner of Blogger, has decided to shut off FTP posting, which has left many people stranded. They could have improved their algorithms, instead, things are shut off. I am now a reluctant expert at migrating Blogger blogs to WordPress. If you have a more…

    Paul M Bowers
    In this post from 8 years ago, I mention Paul M Bowers, a photographer that was around the corner from us at AVENCOM in San Diego. He took many of our photos. I thought I’d check out his site, http://www.paulmbowers.com/, and see how it had changed. I’m actually sort of delighted that it is the…
