Direct plugin auto-update on WordPress 2.8

I get a lot of traffic on the site due to my post on getting direct (non-FTP) updates to work on WordPress 2.5.  This method worked up until 2.7.x.  With 2.8 out this week, I found during my svn switch a conflict was created due to a code change in file.php.  Looking at the changes, …

RSS feed now less Delicious

I recently moved my blog’s RSS/ATOM feed from old-feedburner to new google-flavored feedburner. While I was doing the switch, I looked at what feedburner services I am using. One of the services is called Link Splicer which allows you to inject your links from social bookmarking sites into you feed. In looking at how little …

She’s gone. She gave me a pen. I gave her my heart, she gave me a pen.

Evo Terra tweeted the following: “If you haven’t been bookmarked, retweeted and blogged, you might as well not have existed.” – Will be part of the next Found Things. Which, for some reason inspired me to parody Lloyd Dobler in Say Anything: I don’t want to blog anything, tweet anything, or podcast anything as a …
