Vehiculr.com for Sale

I dislike domain squatting and I didn’t use this domain as planned, so I’m selling vehiculr.com and its matching Google/Gmail & Twitter accounts. I’m only really looking to recover registration & listing fees, but a few extra dollars would certainly help.

Reducing Authoring Time with Textpattern Bookmarklets

Posting around here has been sporadic, at best, lately. With little to no time to author full articles this time of year, I figured I’d better improve the efficiency of my quick linking to tidbits I’ve found elsewhere online. I’ve got a ‘hyper’ section in Textpattern (my CMS of choice) for just such a task, akin to and inspired by the Daring Fireball Linked List, but it’s actually more cumbersome to post to. I usually include a quote and the title from the target site, it’s URL, switch it to the ‘hyper’ section, add some tags and a little commentary. A bookmarklet that could pull in much of that data for me to just tweak and comment could drastically reduce the amount of tab switching and cutting & pasting required.

Automating fixDAVsvn

I published my fixDAVsvn script seven months (and one day) ago to automate the process of fixing apache configuration files that have been manually modified to serve up Subversion repositories (per Nayan Hajratwala’s instructions) when they’re overwritten by Server Admin. This has made managing my apache install considerably easier, but upon rolling it out on a colleague’s server this afternoon I realized it was only ever a half solution. Sure, I had saved myself considerable time just by running fixDAVsvn, but others aren’t necessarily going to want to and there’s really no need. Time to add the second half.

fixDAVsvn

Subversion, mod_dav, and mod_dav_svn are all pre-installed on Leopard Server, authentication via Open Directory is a piece of cake, and you can even mostly config & manage via Server Admin. Nayan Hajratwala has a good tutorial explaining the setup and the few lines you have to manually add to the apache config files, but there’s one problem: whenever you update any site using Server Admin, it replaces all occurrences of ‘DAV svn’ with ‘DAV Off’, completely defeating the purpose.

Vermont Blog Directory

While Cathy Resmer has retired 802 Online, a “blog about Vermont, its media, and its Internets”, she has started compiling a directory of Vermont weblogs. Towards the end there, 802 Online became little more than a YouTube link blog, but it’s good to see some good come out of its demise.

mta_digg_it "Digg This" Plug-in for Textpattern

I happened across the fact that Digg has implemented new ‘smart’ digg buttons on the 6th. The biggest new feature here is that you no longer have to first ‘submit’ an article to get its “digg url” to use with the “Digg This” buttons and can now just reference the article’s permalink instead.
