Odds and Ends

It’s been a busy week, but I’ve managed to find time for a little recreational computing here and there. Here’s the latest on some of my recent entries.

  • My WordPress conversion is largely completed. I still need to get a comments Atom feed set up, and I’d still like to tag some of my pre-conversion posts, but I’m otherwise nearly done.

  • I still haven’t quite gotten tag pages working as I want, but I’ve got it working with redirects, for now.

  • I’m still making little tweaks to Tranquility, the WordPress theme I created for the site, as well as some of the meta parts of the site. I haven’t finished the About or Colophon pages yet, but I did get the Licence page finished, and a number of minor display tweaks made.

  • I replaced my lousy V5 WRT54G with a $30 refurbished V1.1 and a copy of OpenWRT White Russian RC5, which rocks.

  • The one thing I’ve always wanted from my router has been DNS resolution of my DHCP host names; none of the Linksys firmwares across two models of router have done it, and neither did the last version of Sveasoft I tried (the last before the subscription fiasco). Works perfectly with OpenWRT; with a quick edit to the device’s /etc/hosts file, my static IP machines (my server, and the router itsself) also now have DNS-resolvable names.

  • Less than a week after I fixed my page titles, Google has reindexed most of them, so now my search hits have titles again.

  • Technorati is still showing lots of bad links from my test site, which is 410 Gone.

  • I still need to write up my Blosxom to WordPress conversion method, which I promised to do. Hopefully by next weeked.

Both comments and pings are currently closed.

    Re: conversion

    I dumped all of my Blosxom posts into a giant RSS feed. That was a fun time. Something tells me you probably did it more elegantly.

    Not really… I did a big RSS feed too, but with a bunch of tweaking to get all my permalinks to work, number the posts in order, etc. I really need to write it up before I forget it all- I think I kept some notes somewhere.
