I just noticed the image upload for wp 2.1 from Live writer is broken. I uploaded an image to my blog (or tried) for the first time since Jan 26, when I upgraded to 2.1, and got the following error: Invalid Server Response (with red X) and in the message box: The response to the metaWeblog.newMediaObject method received from the Continue Reading
Seems to be that I have so many files in my account, that my host wants to wait until tomorrow night (7pm Central) to do the upgrade. Hope it’s all back up by Sunday, which is when I like to blog the most.
A couple of nights ago, I downloaded Windows Live Writer, and so far, I’m enthusiastic. I just posted something from a page (on Library Thing), and it also blockquoted the text that I had marked to quote. As often as I do that, this will be a time saver (not to mention the utility for spell-checking which , due to Continue Reading
Matt Alexander: The Sorrows of Empire A sample link , from the page I was on when I clicked the Live Writer BlogIt icon: a pic of my kids, Brian and Kelli (17 and 8) after a peek upon Publishing it, it looks good! I wonder what things will be able to add to it? Amazon linkage? YouTube videos? That would Continue Reading
Installed IE7 last night. At first, when my machine rebooted, it came up and sat on the BIOS screen for several seconds, I thought my system had been screwed up… I turned off power after about a minute, and it came back up the same way….so I waited. It finally booted into Windows and so far, I like it. I Continue Reading
On this day, 5 years ago, interesting that this was the day lots of people said blogging really hit the radar as a significant communication: Wired News: 9/11: Birth of the Blog While phone networks and big news sites struggled to cope with heavy traffic, many survivors and spectators turned to online journals to share feelings, get information or detail Continue Reading
I have been playing with Community Server (and before that, dotText) ever since 2003, when I began a quest (which is still proceddding quite slowly) to learn dot Net (.Net). We bought a license for it at work, in anticipation of using it for several things. Now it looks as though a group of developers that are related to our Continue Reading
My internet connection of late had been really bad……the provider (Comcast) had been out after they discovered some fairly consistent packet loss happening. Someone came out Tuesday this past week and switched out a splitter, and the next test showed no packet loss. But it continued to be sluggish as I used it over the next several days. Last night Continue Reading
So, the thing is over, and STILL no podcasts? WhatzamatterWidya? I hope somebody recorded stuff.
Oh, by the way, the book I mentioned toward the tail end of my last post on James Carroll’s House of War, entitled Overthrow, I also bought from Amazon when I bought the Carroll book. Kinzer is another writer on historical conflicts who has noticed the tragic patterns of America not learning its lesson, and reaping the consequences of “an Continue Reading
In another day, I will be 50. I can’t believe it, actually. I don’t feel like it is possible. I still feel, in many ways, like somebody who is wondering “what am I going to do when I grow up?”. I still feel like a college kid. I have a wife and two kids, and wondering how we’re going to Continue Reading
I love the data update effects in WordPress, using those hot ajax bits of code; anybody know where I can look to find it —-I can track it down of course, but for those of you who know WordPress, PHP, and Ajaz in your sleep might save me a few minutes, or point me to some links that give me Continue Reading
I finally got the Pocket PC working correctly. I had been experiencing wierd behaviours with the Dell Axim I have from work. It seems that my first try at installing the driver for the Dell CF Wireless card was the wrong driver becuase I had thought the PocketPC was running PocketPC Windows 2002, but it was actually 2003. So, I Continue Reading
Daveâ€™s WordPress Blog » How RSS can bust through It must be easy to find relevant feeds. Too much hunt and peck is involved. The reason My.Yahoo and iTunes have been successful is that they centralize a lot of the discovery, they make it easy to find stuff you might be interested in. Absolutely. And it is here that the Continue Reading
I have use of a Sony ICD-BM1 voice recorder for my trip. It records MSV files. It’s included software only converts to WAV files. Is there a way to get this direct to MP3? I don’t want to have to find a converter to convert the WAV files, nor do I want to have to do two conversions. Anything anybody Continue Reading
