Tonight’s second plugin from the Ulrich Plugin Foundry is an interesting twist on TrackBack: TrackForward is a plugin to list the TrackBack urls that an entry pinged, for easy gathering by the next person to come into a conversation. This entry is pinging his, so the TrackBack popup will have an example of TrackForward in […]

Edit This MT Page

Monday, July 29th, 2002

I didn’t realize how much I was missing Blogger’s late, surprisingly not very lamented, “remote editing” feature, until I put in the other Phil’s new plugin, EntryEditLink, which links your choice of text (my choice being one of the pipes in the byline) to the page to edit your entry (assuming, of course, that you […]

Random blogs

Sunday, July 28th, 2002

Three ways to surf blogs at random: NextBlog! gives you a random recently updated Blogger-powered blog. random blog gives you a random blog from the database (updated in the last seven days). RandomFreshBlog is my version of the version of NextBlog! that Dave wants – I’m using the changes.xml file rather than […]

Grampa, where were you when Shannon released Less Like You? Well, sonny, I was playing with a browser toy and writing code nobody will ever use.

MultiBrowser Bar

Friday, July 26th, 2002

Fun browser toy of the day: Turck Software’s MultiBrowser Bar is an app that uses IE5.5+/Win to make a better browser for multiple windows on a slow connection, but it may also be a better way to browse with multiple windows no matter what your connection speed. MBB opens an Internet Explorer window covering most […]

Comments API

Friday, July 26th, 2002

I’m not sure quite what it will really be good for yet, but this Comments API proposal sounds cool anyway. Comments and an API are enough for me: I’ll worry about what it’s good for later. The one problem I’ve got in terms of doing a dotcomments or Movable Type implementation is the lack of […]

How can I annoy my YIM Friends?

Of course, if you know of Some Utilities To Show My Invisible To Visible In Yahoo Messenger, you’re welcome to answer his question.

deus_x on getting levelled up

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2002

I guess I can’t really complain about how rarely deus_x is posting on his various blogs, what with my own torrid pace, and the fact that it has taken me a couple of weeks to mention his dead-on take on the motivation for blogging-tech blogging: I don’t get a sense of accomplishment anymore from gathering […]

Gone fishin’

Friday, July 19th, 2002

I’m off for a weekend of sitting in the woods drinking, swimming with my nephew-equivalent, Dusty the Rescue Dog (who thinks that any swimmer needs a Golden Retriever clawing up their back to help them swim), and maybe dancing with a trout or two. I’d recommend that you do the same, though perhaps without the […]

Filling the page

Wednesday, July 17th, 2002

As pk says, it’s a crap meme, but nonetheless and neverthestill, Phil is … the executive Director of Grace to You, a Christian tape and radio ministry …basically the only one to blame if you don’t like the comments on these pages … joined by Vernon Dozier … “getting real” and helping you unlock your […]
