The 5-year-old Nissan Pulsar that I got has been serving me well. I drive it to work Monday to Friday. It took me to Canberra a couple of times. It has been to Queensland and back twice. It even has its own moment of fame to be part of J & V’s bridal party last [...]
In response to MeanDean’s request, I have migrated my original PHP scripturizer to the same level of functionality as his latest Perl version, as well as adding WordPress plugin capability to add Bible reference links through content filter.
One thing that I dislike about WordPress is its default wptexturize filter that messes up with my HTML code.

Blog Software Breakdown – comparing featureset of all existing tools.
The computer that serves you this page is dying. Not yet, but bits and pieces are falling apart. My vintage CD burner has been generating more frisbee than ever. It started last week, and has so far produced half a dozen useless coasters. Using cdrecord, it would report that CD writing has achieved nirvana speed [...]
WordPress 1.2 final is out for grab. I can hear a lot of people jumping ship…
You can still download Movable Type 2.661. Not that obvious, but still useful for those who do not want to be restricted by the 3.0 license.
