PHP Calendar »

Miles To Go Before I Sleep... By Vikram Vaswani

No, it's not something to do with politics or whatever. Just a DIY PHP/MySQL calendar that I might implement on this site. (Or all my sites? There's so much I want to do with my sites, and I pretty much want to do all those things to all my sites.)

Now if only Yahoo! Calendar, which I use regularly for work shifts and social engagements (yeah, I have a social life all of a sudden), had an XML feed for their web-based calendar, I'd be all over that.

No, I'm not that much of a nerd, but I wish I was.

Change of Format »

Once I get settled into my new place, I'm going to change the format of this site. It's going to be similar to Blogpopuli, in that anybody with TrackBack can post links of their MovableType-related postings to this site. I'll have content of my own to share as well, since I will probably come up with a PHP trick every so often).

Upgrade Soon »

Movable Type 2.5 coming soon. I'm most interested in the pings feature (pings more sites, and pings them more intelligently) as well as the integration of MT-Search (which allows users to search a person's weblog, as well as special functions like an edit link for if you're logged in under MT). A better formated e-mail notification is something I look forward to, as well as the other features not mentioned (it the above-linked post refers to "some of the features", meaning not all of the new features?).

I haven't been following MT-related developments as closely as I'd like. Just my living situation is making blogging in general difficult. Not that it's stopped me from blogging at my other sites, but it's limited it, and this weblog has suffered the most, what with my posts being solely comments about the front-page blog on the MT site.

Standalone Trackback »

Ben and Mena release a standalone TrackBack for bloggers who don't use the MovableType Publishing System (why they aren't is anybody's guess, but then again, maybe I'm biased). From the technical docs:

"[The standalone TrackBack implementation] accepts pings sent through HTTP requests, stores the pings locally in the filesystem, and can return a list of pings sent on a particular TrackBack item in RSS format. It also generates RSS files statically, if you want it to."
