Apparently I’m available on LiveJournal now.
By popular demand, the grass picture is now available full-size. I’m curious, what are your favorite pictures? Maybe I could put together a wallpaper pack or something.
My newest addiction is chocolate covered cashews. YUM!
The new version of Movable Type addresses the issue that was supposedly causing incredibly high loads and causing hosts to disable MT. Congrats to the team for addressing this so quickly.
By the way, WordPress is now available in at least 30 languages.
Joeseph Scott says Fixing Search Engines Won’t Stop Comment Spam.
Matt Kingston does a weighted list or heat map plugin for categories, nice! See it in action on his archives. He should drop that in the new repository (which I would say in his comments but they’re broken at the moment).
I accidentally left AIM on my laptop at the office this weekend and I didn’t get a chance to come up here to turn it off. Now there are 33 open message windows from people who IMed me, probably all thinking I ignored them. One interesting note, when this many windows are blinking XP has a noticable delay between them, it’s almost like running lights.
The Debian package of WordPress 1.2.2. Those guys move fast! We’re moving fast too, the latest build has some surprises for everyone.
Molly dumps her brain after Web Design World, a very worthwhile read from one of the most insightful people in the industry.
I finally got a chance to read through Attention.XML that Tantek has been bugging me to look at for a while. It’s a lot like OPML except more verbose and I don’t have any toolkits that work with it easily. On the other hand it has some excellent ideas with regards to extensibility and I could see supporting this for something like updating WordPress’ link times, if it could be done elegantly. Groups are a little confusing, but I just read on the Technorati list they’re cleaning that up. I’m going to their holiday party later with Cheyanne so I hope to learn more.
Peter Saint-Andre thinks there are some cool integration possibilities between Jabber and WordPress and I’m inclined to agree. I’m “jabbering” now, on the development mailing list, and reading through the specs, so we’ll see what comes of it.
Review of the WordPress forums. It seems that most people either love or hate the forums, we’re working on addressing every single question more.
A professor at Northwestern is going to be experimenting with blogs and installing WordPress for her students. Very cool.
