• Some interesting flickr keyword searches (or tags whatever)

    Just though of looking at some interesting words in flickr. I just saw some persons blog where they were talking about the power of words. Well, I’m a person with a fairly large vocabulary. Not that I deliberately use pedantic words (like in monty python:

    This thrillingly exciting unix tool also has a great page about it, Sed - An Introduction and Tutorial . It starts with “The Awful Truth about sed” which is simple … “the documentation is terrible”.

  • It's tags after all

    Well I changed my mind and decided to call my categories “tags” after all. Just seems to make more sense. On the other hand, my siteware allows me to use multi-word tags.

  • Categories are here!

    Well, it’s been a long time, but I finally added categories to my blog software. You’ll notice the category browser up there at the top.

  • mailman RSS, and virtual hosts on localhost

    In 2003, on the W3C www-rdf-interest mailing list, Dan Brickley wrote :<blockquote>I just stumbled across this after an #rdfig discussion about adding RSS support to Mailman, the popular list management and HTML archiving package. Turns out the patch exists already (but wasn’t intergrated yet). It took me less than 10 minutes to patch my Mailman installation and rebuild the archives for rdfweb-dev. I now have generated automatically. See for the (trivial to apply) patch and related info. Just cd into the Mailman/Archiver/ directory and do ‘patch < ~danbri/rss.patch’ or whatever, then re-run bin/arch on your archives. The markup exported is fairly basic, but sets things up nicely for future extensions – you could add in richer descriptions of the mailing lists fairly easily, though I’m not sure how best one would hook such information up to Mailman’s www-based frontend. </blockquote>

  • The good CVS book

    There is one good online CVS guide and manual, and it’s this one: Open Source Development With CVS . It’s also a real book, and although the version I’m pointing you to may well be not the latest edition, it’s still really, really good.
