…and a test post with myWeblog

Posted by & filed under Blogging.

Found another offline WordPress editor to try on my MacBook. This time it’s myWeblog 2.1. I like the looks of it. Seems very Mac-like, which I suppose is a good thing. One of the things I’m most looking for, and so far only found in myWeblog, is the ability to edit pages. WYSIWYG would be… Read more »

First post with MarsEdit

Posted by & filed under Blogging.

If you read the post up from this you’ll see that I just tried out Qumana and wasn’t all that happy with it. It was nice to be able to blog without logging into WordPress, but it had a couple of deal breakers for me. Unfortunately none of the free solutions I’ve come across have… Read more »

By default the tab key does… Read more »

Should I block Baidu?

Posted by & filed under Internet.

Well, I am for now. I noticed Baidu pretty much on a forum of mine 24/7, but I didn’t recall ever seeing them show up in the referrer logs.  Over the past year, across the sites on my server, they’ve made almost 35,000 requests for pages; chewed up 337 megs of bandwidth, admittedly not a… Read more »

WordPress release archive

Didn’t know this was around, but looking for older versions of WordPress to test plugins against I found the WordPress release archive.  Looks like you can find pretty much every release they’ve put out.

Switching from eCommerce to free with ads

Posted by & filed under Computers & Internet.

A few years ago I got on a kick making simple Photoshop templates and threw up a website to try and sell a few. I had no illusions that my templates were of the level that were being sold for $20+ so I went with a type of credit system similar to what iStockPhoto.com does. … Read more »
