Comment approval

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

Apparently, I haven’t been receiving email notification of comments, so approval of new commenters has been slow. I think I’ve fixed that now, so comment away.

Ooh! It’s all different!

Yes, it is!

Basically, I’ve finally bitten the bullet and moved this whole thing over to WordPress on my Bytemark VM. All the old posts and comments seem to have imported okay, and I’ve even crafted a RewriteRule so that links to individual posts on my old blog should still work here. The theme is kind of a work in progress whilst I get my head round WordPress’s templating system, but it’s not too offensive on the eye at the moment, I hope.

Of course, whether I’ll update any more often or not is still an open question, but hey, it’s a start.

Two things:

  1. Commenting is broken. Don’t know why.Commenting should work now.
  2. Dates for old posts are screwy. Do know why, will fix.Dates should be fixed.

I’m back!

Right, back in Blighty and, if not entirely ship-shape and Bristol fashion, then at least moving towards being so. I think my timezone in somewhere in Russia at the moment, and gradually drifting westwards.

A few people seem to have been having trouble with the bzr repo. The answer to most of the question is that, yes, you’ll see nothing with a web browser – you have to install the bzr client. I’ve wondered about adding a hook to build a tarball or something whenever I push up an update, but that’ll have to wait until I’ve got a few more tuits in my bag.

I’ve got a bunch more reference material to look at now – which is good as I’m still pretty unhappy with the way things look. Maybe what I actually need is a giant Gundam robot looming over the skyline of my city?

Not dead

I’ve not abandoned the project, I’m just on holiday. In Japan, in fact, where there’s loads of skyscrapers to use as reference material. Be back soon.

Not A Twitter

Sunday, December 7th, 2008

Much like I don’t have a blog, and this isn’t it, I now don’t have a twitter feed either, and it isn’t here. You’ll be able to find all the places I am whilst not twittering, and things I’m doing whilst not twittering. How exciting!
