Since I added microformats to my site just about a year ago, the spec has been changed to use more distinct class names. I’ve updated my site to match. (more…)
I have been wondering why archived copies of my site look so ugly in the Wayback Machine. Today I realized it is all my fault: they obey my robots.txt file, which disallows crawling the directory with all the style sheets in it. I’ve fixed that, but it’ll be quite some time before they catch up to today…
I just completed testing my plugins with WordPress 2.1-alpha3 and they all work correctly. This should mean that it is safe to continue using them with WordPress 2.1, once it is released.

Multibyte Mail for WordPress

Written in the mid-afternoon in English • Tags: ,

The Multibyte Mail plugin replaces the wp_mail() function with one that tries to encode the usual email message headers that might contain 8-bit data. It should work well with the core WordPress code as well as any plugins, unless the plugin is sending out some unusual headers.

If you receive bounces for comments on articles with 8-bit (or multibyte) characters in their title (or in the name of the comment author), this plugin should prove helpful. (more…)

Suomenkielinen WordPress 2.0.5

Kirjoitettu aamulla suomeksi • Tägit:

Onkohan 50 bugikorjausta nykyään uuden version julkaisun rajapyykki? Ainakin se varmasti on erittäin hyvä syy julkaista uusi WordPression versio 2.0.5 ja varsin houkuttava syy oman blogin päivittämiseen!

Uusi versio sisältää taas tietoturvaan liittyviä parannuksia, joten päivitykseen uhratut minuutit kannattavat. (jatkuu…)

I’ve had a number of ideas on articles for this blog, but a) I didn’t write them down and b) the ideas didn’t choose to occur at times when I’d be idling by a keyboard… I’ve started a new section in my task management software to try and keep such ideas alive for the future.
SourceForge has improved their CVS infrastructure. Instead of checking out all of pkgsrc-wip from scratch, you could just fix the already checked out tree. (more…)
It seems all phone companies have the same tricks up their sleeves…

Vonage horror stories

Written at evening time in English • Tags:

I could have saved some time if I had read more user comments from the Google results for unlocking my Vonage-provided Cisco ATA-186 adapter. It appears Vonage doesn’t want to unlock your adapter even after you have stayed with them for ages, or even if you pay them for the unlocking service.

I found this quite surprising, as I’ve been a satisfied Vonage customer for many years. I only discontinued the service several months after moving to Finland, when it was clear I was not using it enough to justify the cost.

Based on my experience today, though, it seems the horror stories are quite true. (more…)
