  • Pardon my dust. Plus, ancient “under construction” GIFs.

    As I mentioned, I’m playing with the blog theme, including the archive footer. Things may look a little odd, or error, in the interim. I hope not much. Pardon my dust. Clearly, it’s time for an animated under construction sign (warning, your eyes may be repulsed by that page full of old animated GIFs): And…


  • WordPress Graphical Post Count Visualization

    I’m playing with a new theme for my blog, and wanted a better way to let people quickly scan for how many posts I had. So I used a background image of black, offset with background-position in css to let a graph “show through” to show the count. I’ve also posted the PHP and CSS…

  • Upgraded to 2.7

    You probably can’t actually tell, but the interface is pretty nice – -this is WordPress I’m talking about, the software that powers this blog. More details

  • Morning is the time for Miscellany

I’ve never been quite comfortable with the Categories system in WordPress, perhaps the tagging in 2.3 is a good answer, I certainly enjoy tags in flickr…


  • Transitions

    This week, my hosting company, Pair.com, will be making several upgrades to the machine I host with. The biggest transition is that my sites will now be running under PHP5 instead of PHP4. Yesterday I upgraded the blogs I maintain to the latest and best version of WordPress — version 2.2.3 — and for the…


  • WordPress 2.1 Ate My Blog

    I can see the posts in the database, but something went wonky on the upgrade and everything before the upgrade is invisible. Woe is me till I find the time to fix it. Please stand by. I’m asking about it on the wp support forum. Update: And we’re back. The way I fixed it: running…

  • Old Blogger Archive PHP Code

    I’m doing some blog housecleaning this morning. Here’s the code I used to use to display an archive list of blogger entries: Pretty straightforward, it grabs a list of files with the right name pattern, then prints a pretty display of the previous listings. Now that we’re on WordPress, it’s not necessary. I blog it…

  • Here goes WordPress

    I’m about to import hundreds of entries from my old blogger file into WordPress. Wish me luck.
