All the cool kids are doing it, so here it is. If you put a number at the end, like comments/50, you will se the last 50 comments. Neat huh? Want to see something really fancy? After you put the number on the end, add “rss” like this. Hot damn. It’s even valid. Some feedback […]
The “Syndicate” page has been updated, which you could tell from its emphasized status on the menu bar if you were actually at the site. I’m afraid one day my RSS feed will start getting more hits than my main page, and that will be a very sad day indeed.
Click here, right now. Now I know what you’re thinking, “What is Matt making us click now? Maybe I shouldn’t, although that date thing was pretty funny…” Well to save the lazier among you some trouble, that’s the second page of Google results for “matt” and yours truly is at #13. Now before you call […]
Not that I’m advocating anything, but now probably would be a good time to buy some PhotoMatt, especially since the price just drastically dropped and there is a new juicy front page link that hasn’t been picked up by the bot yet. Is this wrong? Maybe, but all’s fair in love and BlogShares. In other […]
The now playing section is now being pinged again.
The Reading sidebar now has an archive page.
So you’ve seen the ten that were chosen from a pool of over five thousand, but wouldn’t it be interesting to know what photos didn’t quite make the cut? Here’s the story of the six photos that almost made it: 6-1-2002, Rachel — I really like this photo but it’s a tad washed out in […]
I cannot describe the thrill I felt when Rannie asked me if I wanted to participate in the latest 300 Exposures Project. Well my ten selections are now online. I put a little story with some of the pictures, something the photolog format here doesn’t really lend itself well to, so go check it out […]
The photolog has four new albums and about a hundred new pictures, including some of a family trip, an Apple sticker, a peace protest, and two jazz concerts. I had another very nice post lined up but I forgot that Tantek’s site occasionally crashes my browser so it’ll have to wait until I find some […]
My day in photos: Alfred Hitchcock would cringe. Mmmm, texture. New do. I love the arrow. Flowers for my Mother’s birthday. Blue steel. Not pictured: my mid-term being delayed until Saturday, birthday dinner, evil Starbucks, rude and ageist salespeople, how wonderful this day was despite the occasional annoyance, and my funny elated look from being […]
Okay, per Tantek’s suggestion I’ve made the menu entirely a nested list, and adjusted the CSS accordingly. I had to work out a few kinks with the specificity of the contextual selectors, but after that it was a breeze. However this has brought to my attention how terribly ugly the CSS ridge effect is in […]
I’ve cleaned up the ht://dig search engine quite a bit, though I still have to hack it to be XHTML 1.1 compliant and fit better with the site, but after updating the index I got these interesting stats: ./htstat htstat: Total documents: 11490 htstat: Total words: 1933258 htstat: Total unique words: 17660 The bulk of […]
This is just post to let everyone know that you can now browse PhotoMatt securely. The secure site is functionally equivalent except it doesn’t display the Wanderlust code because it will pop an annoying error since it’s loading remotely. It uses a self-signed 1024 bit SSL certificate which will pop up as not being from […]
I’ve had a ton of stuff in my oft-crowded favorites folder, but now it is all in the blogroll, where it should be. Speaking of which: old post, new comment, from the man himself.
Well they say imitation is the highest form of flattery, so why do I feel so violated?
Got some really nice pictures in the country on Sunday. I hadn’t realized it until I was working on the photos, but the bulk of the pictures on the photolog are taken at night. This fits my personality because I’m very much a night person, but these daylight pictures have really nice colors, so perhaps […]
The photos from last Thursday’s meetup at Brasil’s with the some other H-Town Bloggers are finally up on the photolog, as are some others. It was great to see Elaine, Kathy, Christine, Katie, Robert, and Mike again. There are so more thorough photos (like with people) up at the H-Town Blogs Gallery. Remember when something […]
Added the first of what will be many visitor statistics to the Zeitgeist. Thanks to PowerPhlogger I have very rich data in SQL which is easy to access. Plus it already does so much itself there is no need to reinvent the wheel in many cases. Right now there’s just visual goodies up, mostly because […]
What happens when three friends are very bored one night and decide to reenact fight scenes from various movies in stop time in a public park? Good question.
The design here is like the weather in Texas, if you don’t like it, wait five minutes for it to change again. Comments are appreciated! RSS users yawn and don’t even notice… Update: I’ve gotten some comments that it looks a lot like Metafilter, and I see the similarities, mainly with the background color and […]
