Back to LiveJournal, kind of.

A little over a year ago, I set up this blog, Rich Text, on WordPress on my own domain, and since I had a permanent LiveJournal account (thanks, Rah!) that I didn’t want to leave to rot, I set up crossposting. That made sense at the time, because people could read one place or the […]

RSS feed readers: Flickr, del.icio.us change

So I’ve finally got posting phone photos to Flickr working, and posting phone photos via Flickr to my blog working. That means that I can blog things that I see as they happen, instead of when I remember to get them off my phone! Which is good. But doing so reminded me that for ages […]

Inspire me.

I have a bit more spare time these days. I should be posting here more. But I’m not! So outside of just forcing myself to post more often (and to post more “stuff I found on the web”, which usually I just share on a couple of IRC channels), I figured I’d ask you guys […]

At first I thought that I’d been […]

My 15 minutes

So my recent post about the most expensive items on Amazon was surprisingly popular. Since I tend to write here the same way I did in my LiveJournal, primarily for an audience of friends, I was a bit surprised by the attention (and doubly so since by the time I’d finished writing that post, I […]

My WordPress plugins

I’d started writing a post about which WordPress plugins I’m using right after I got things up and running here, but decided to put it off because my plugin list was changing regularly. Things have settled down, though, and bunnyhero asked what plugins I was using, so now seems like a good time! Feel free […]
