Oh no, i can feel it starting again

I’m already getting sick of this layout, it’s too much like the last one. In the near future I’ll upgrade WordPress and start hacking away at a new theme. For those that have requested themes and whatnot, Fork for K2 will be along shortly. And to those that think I don’t spend any time with my plugins, flickrRSS 3.0 should be along soon too (be prepared to break your old installs, muahaha).

idGettr.com

I created a little page awhile ago that allows you to retrieve your Flickr userid number or groupid number. It actually gets used — mostly for WordPress plugins, but you can also use it for other things like embedding Flash slideshows in your site. I’ve moved the page to idGettr.com and created a Flickeresque design for it.

Ketchup Week

It’s Ketchup Week. I’ve been at home, which may explain the lack of updates. Should be back in Kingston tomorrow afternoon, the pace should pick up a bit.

RSS feed icons

The IE7 team recently announced that they’re adopting the Firefox feed icon to create consistency across browsers. It’s about time, those oranage xml and rss chiclets were ass-ugly. In response, Matt Brett has whipped up some fancy full-size feed icons (in Photoshop and Illustrator format) that you can use on your site.

How To: nebulous desktop wallpaper

Creating your own trippy nebulous desktop wallpaper is relatively easy. The only tool you need is a painting program capable of drawing gradients and maintaining multiple layers (Photoshop, PaintShop or Gimp all fit the bill nicely).

My txt setup

Merlin describes his txt setup. I’ve tried a variety of solutions, but will probably end up here in the next little while. So much of my time is spent in a text-editor these days, that it just makes sense. Ideally, it would be nice to get it rsynced to my server so I can access the files anywhere.
