Well, this is my first native-Wordpress post. I spent the better part of the week figuring out WP1.5’s theme system, importing posts from Blogger and Haloscan, and trying to “reconstruct” something that looked like the blog I already had. How did I do all this? I’m saving that for another post.
I’m still using Blogger for my neatlinks sidebar–their BlogThis feature (which I’ve previously modified) is pretty useful, and popular opinion suggests that WP doesn’t understand the concept of multiple semi-integrated blogs. So I’m avoiding that for now. Note to self: consider stealing Matt Haughey’s “daily links” concept.
Unlike neatlinks, the comments for justinsomnia are now integrated in with the post, which I like. I’m using the LiveCommentPreview plugin to preview the comments in real time as you type. Is this a good idea? I don’t know. But I had fun hacking around with the source and then contributing the revisions back to author using TortoiseSVN.
If you notice broken site stuff (other than the “writing” link above) leave me a comment.
In other news, I’ll be heading out to San Diego on Sunday to attend the O’Reilly Emerging Technology Conference all next week. Patrick will be there, Paul Jones will be there, the entire cast and crew of BoingBoing will be there, and I’m told Mexico is near by. Other than that, I’ve got no plans other than geeking out unabashedly with everyone who’s not going to SXSW.
