Please Update Your Links

The move to the new site is complete (enough) that I’m ready to call it permanent, if unfinished.

Even though I’m redirecting traffic from the old site and from the old URL, for those of you linking to me, I’d prefer not to have to rely on redirects at all. So,y’all please change your links to:


ecto, MT and iTunes

So, I hate authoring any lengthy content in a webpage. Way back when, that was one of the big reasons not to use MT.

I’m a big fan of “rich client” applications instead. Think iTunes Music Store. Think Ofoto Express for Mac. 🙂

In comes ecto. This the follow-on to kung-log, and it basically gives you your beautiful, handy Macintosh UI while composing entries that get posted to your MT site. No fussing with webpages and editing fields that are too small to use. No big chance of losing your posting just cuz you hit the back button or accidentally closed the wrong Safari window.

So go check it out if you’re a Mac person and you use MT.

Oh, and it’s got a “now playing in iTunes” button in the UI:

So today I discovered, quite accidentally, that dreamhost has turned on AppleShare. No more FTP clients just to move files from here to there. Just mount my home directory in the Finder and drag ‘em to where they belong.

God, I’m such a nerd.

Welcome to the New Church

Hi all…and welcome to the new digs.

What a pain in the ass (and not in a good way) getting things moved over here. Most of the archives are not here yet; all of the comments are gone (post some more!) and won’t be moved.

The chapters of A Strong Sense of Place are not here yet, either.

On the plus side, I’m now on movable type and can start to do all kinds of cool nerdy stuff ‘round here.

Stay tuned.
