1. Doing a mass find-and-replace operation on the Perch Blog app so I can have more than one running at the same time. If you want to do something similar, here are the strings you need to replace:

    • blogyourName
    • BlogYourName
    • perch_blogyourPrefix_yourName
    • PerchBlogYourName

    And then obviously rename the .class.php files and activate as you would any other app.

  2. It must be amazing to be a squirrel and really be able to experience the world in three dimensions. We only really get 2 and a half.

  3. Laura Kalbag: <a class="h-x-username auto-link" href="https://twitter.com/BarnabyWalters">Barnaby Walters</a> you've said so much better what I was trying to say to you, <a class="h-x-username auto-link" href="https://twitter.com/aral">Aral Balkan</a>, when I said I couldn't deal with that way of working…

    @laurakalbag aral there’s a lot to be said for good ‘ol HTTP terminology, even when talking about CMSes and content strategy :)

  4. Earlier, aral wittily quipped:

    The CMS I use for my personal sites is called a file system. You might have heard of it.

    I disagree with this premise. Useful and easy as filesystems are, without a wrapper like Jekyll they don’t manage content (resources), they manage representations (typically HTML).

  5. Back in Devon after a great fake-birthday weekend in London. Ate far too much cake, and watched more Captain Scarlet than probably healthy.

  6. Jovian Salak: <a class="h-x-username auto-link" href="https://twitter.com/BarnabyWalters">Barnaby Walters</a> What are you up there for?

    joviansalak my birthday! And to see some relatives, and buy supplies for Iceland. And ice cream :)

  7. Laura Kalbag: That was 15 comments I fished out of spam. Loads of them talking about Louis Vuitton handbags, though I'm not sure why… ;)

    laurakalbag you mean you spend time doing… reverse spam filtering?! Doesn’t that negate the usefulness of spam filters completely? Personally I am inclined against leaving comments on other sites anyway, it may keep conversations in the same place but it fragments my identity. Hence developing Own Your Comments

  8. Jovian Salak: My #clownoftheyear award is going to the whole coalition government! You lucky folk... Oh, and I'm accepting nominations for 2nd place!

    JovianSalak personally, I think Mr. Gove deserves to be singled out… :-/

  9. Jovian Salak: #LifeofPi It must be said that I've never seen such a deep and spiritual film for a VERY long time - it deserves my highest recommendations

    JovianSalak does it chart the life of an irrational number as it rafts across the sea with a bad CGI tiger?

  10. Time to play “guess the Wikipedia article”. Where did this come from?

    …blow-up dolls, kickboxing dummies, cardboard cut-outs, and balloons with faces drawn on them.

    No googling!
