Hmm, I really should cleanup this blog..

by ,

It’s looking pretty sad at the moment. :-/ It’s because I haven’t fully recovered pics.tnir.org, so there are missing graphics here and there.

Maybe I will just use a pre-canned theme so that it looks ok or something. My main problem is that I turn off WordPress’ “translate returns into
tags” auto-filter, which isn’t a setting. I have to hand-edit the PHP code every time.

ReidNews now on DreamHost

.. and so are Tech Tok and
33 and a Third.

After my linux box seized up, I decided to finally get around to moving stuff off my personal server.
This *should* result in faster access for everyone but us here at home. 🙂

While I was at it, I added the capability of using your Facebook account to leave comments in the Disqus system.
But there are still many missing images.
I am rsync’ing them as fast as I’m able.
It’ll take a little while longer, I’m afraid.

Trying out “Disqus” for comments

by ,
Disqus

Let me know what you think of the new comment system.
I’ve installed if for all zero-comment posts (which includes all new posts), so old posts with comments still have the old WordPress commenting system.

This may involve you having to create a Disqus account, but the idea is that you can use that account across blogs.
I am also setting up Disqus on
Tech Tok
so you only have to create your account once for both places.

Leo Laporte has also set up his blog to use it.
Maybe it will spread everywhere.

The idea is that your comments belong to you, and Disqus makes it easier to follow people, as opposed to blogs.

URL change

by ,

I guess I should mention that while I was at it, I decided to change the URL of my page.
It used to be tnir.org/~rae/ but now it’s just
rae.tnir.org.
All the old picture links should continue working; I’ve set up a rewrite rule in the web server for that.
Actually, I think I have a few more things to move around now.
Some URLs won’t be working for a little while, but they will eventually.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
