Phillip Pearson - web + electronics notes

tech notes and web hackery from a new zealander who was vaguely useful on the web back in 2002 (see: python community server, the blogging ecosystem, the new zealand coffee review, the internet topic exchange).


Crash is back

OK, the link blog I started a couple of years ago is live again. RSS here.

Why am I doing this and not using Because it's related to the aggregator hackery I've been doing recently. These notes are really easy to create inside the aggregator, and it's not hard at all to post them to Wordpress using the metaWeblog API.

I guess they'll flow through at some point. Remember - BBM loves compatibilitity...

Update: Sooner than expected... now you can see the links on my page first, or you can wait until I send a batch of them through to Crash. Now I've got to get tagging going; the links don't look right on without tags!

Wordpress and PHP5?

I'm getting some odd behaviour when installing Wordpress on a server running PHP5. First, it won't let me log in when I use IE - only Firefox. Then, import-mt.php crashes Apache - I get errors like [notice] child pid 3373 exit signal Segmentation fault (11) in error.log. Anyone else seen this?

Looks like import-mt.php depends on register_globals being on, too. Someone should fix that :-)
