Relatively new Sydney style/culture guide Two Thousand now have a blog, but its a blog without any link to an RSS feed. Digging through the source it looks like its a WordPress-based blog, which means the RSS feed is here.
laurenmv2314 thinks that I’m a stupid head and that Xanga rules. Pfft, yeah right Lauren, you’re doing a really great job of convincing me of how good Xanga is. 😛 LiveJournal, eeeh, maybe. Blogger, hmmm, getting there. But Xanga? Hahahaha 😆
So Hot Right in 1969
I’m not sure that Giv and Patrick are so hot right now anymore. It would appear that they were so hot in 1969. Sixty-nine dude!
Xanga Liberation Front
After Giv liberated Beta from her old Xanga blog, last night I finally got around to liberating Joanne and Bec’s from their old Xanga blogs. You can now find Joanne here (pending her iluvkeanu.com domain ;-)) and Bec here.
One thing that I couldn’t find in the past is some sort of Xanga export tool. If you want blog exporting on Xanga, you need to pay for it with a Xanga Premium Account. Yeah, riiight. Luckily XRIP came to the rescue. XRIP is just a php script that dumps all of your Xanga posts into a MovableType post file which most blogging software these days can import happily (including WordPress, which is what Bec and Joanne’s blogs are now running.) It required a bit of sed’ing to remove some of the nasty formatting that Xanga puts into its posts, but after that it was all good. Then follow the WordPress Movable Type import guide, voila! No more Xanga.
So now the girls get new blogs and get to keep their old posts (including Beta as well :D) Now onto those pesky LiveJournals 😉
Welcome back to the planet BJ 😀 So when are you going to enable comments and trackbacks?
Just trying out at script that does LiveJournal auto-updating.
Woah, how’d I miss out on the Incredible Hulk’s blog?
I’m still finding my way around the latest version of WordPress, but one nice thing that’s been updated is the comment moderation. Previously it was an all or nothing affair, either moderating everything or nothing at all. That didn’t bother me too much, since I don’t get too many comments. But now I can moderate dependant on how many links there are in the comment. Lots of links are usually comment spam, and I’m don’t think any legitimate comments have had any links in them yet. So now anything with no links gets automatically approved. Yay!
The only small annoyance seems to be that Alex King’s WP Since Last Visit plugin is broken. I guess I’ll update when I get around to it.
WordPress gaining props
With the recent changes in the Movable Type licensing, heaps of people have been moving across to the much more free GPLed WordPress blogging software which this blog is running on. A nice article over at Sitepoint linking to some people of interest, one of them stating that they have WordPress up and running in 4 minutes. So what was your problem then, eh Royal? 😉
Back on board
After a long period of silence, Benn’s blog is back again, moved across to being Movable Type-based (I’m telling ya, it would have been up, running and configured a month ago with WordPress! ;-)) after being a Blogger blog for the last few years.
Lars Holst gives some great examples of well-designed weblogs. Time for some inspiration. 😀
Blog update in progress
Yeah, so blah blah blah, I’m in the process of upgrading my blog. So I’ve
I’m stuck with this ugly default installed this page layout from Alex King’s site. I’ll be slowly tweaking things over the next few days to something that resembled how things were before, or perhaps something completely new. I don’t mind this new scheme as the colours are quite similiar to my old PSG based blog. I’m pretty sure that the sushi at the top of the screen will have to go though.
Now here’s an angry young man… 😆
Hacked and trashed
Looks like Benn’s blog was hacked overnight. 😡 I hope you get things back up and running again soon mate. Perhaps its time to setup a better blog system? 😉

Planet Gnome, and now Planet Debian
Previously, the great Planet Gnome meta-blog was hanging off the gnome.org domain, but it now has its own domain name over at planet.gnome.org. Rockin’. Also of note is the new Planet Debian meta-blog.
OK, blogging now is officially, totally, uncool
For crying out loud, Santa now has his own fricken weblog. More over at O’Reilly Weblogs from William Grosso
Not content with Radio Userland, it looks like BJ has updated his weblog to the Zope based content management system, Plone. Looks pretty damn nice. All you need now is some content dude! 😉 Other fellow Dorjian’s Kernow and B are kickin’ along with their blogs, and also for the darn cutest blog around, check out Paige Bebee’s blog.
