Typing this from Deepest Sender (while listening to a remixes of Septette for the Dead Princess) It’s kinda nice and exactly what I was looking for – An extension for Firefox that allows you to post directly to your blog. (Of course you need XML RPC turned on to do so.) I note that it can’t upload or resize photos for you, but that would kinda be feature bloat anyway, wouldn’t it? Ack, it seems to lack the ability to easily make headings and such as well, but you can add them with raw HTML in the source editting tab though.
For a quick one-off post like this, it seems as though it might be a useful tool to have at your disposal.
What’s better yet is that it allows you to save your post so you can come back to it later. (Might want to make sure you give it an XML file extension and don’t accidentally load the Kanji Dictionary XML file either. It really doesn’t like that. Oops.)
Looking for more Firefox blogging extensions? I found them at speckboy design magazine.
I noticed a couple of searches for ‘running danbooru’ in my search phrases for this site, so I decided to post a little bit more about that. I assume someone searching for this was actually searching for help with installing danbooru. Admittedly, I had some difficulty with it. For one thing, I’d never used psql in my life. 😛
Here’s the INSTALL file that’s packaged with the source code so you know what you’re getting yourself into before you even fetch the source tree from Subversion.
Gah! I finaly got my Steam-purchased copy of BioShock to work. If you’re using Windows Vista or Windows 7 and use a Realtek High-Definition Audio device and Bioshock crashes at startup: update your driver to the latest version from Realtek’s site. Additionally, you may or may not need to enable the ‘stereo mix’ recording device in the ‘manage recording devices’ control panel applet. (Right click in empty space and check show disabled devices for them to show up.)
Yeah, I could probably file this one under “overkill.” I’ve managed to set up a virtual machine running Danbooru so that I may finally get my personal photo collection organized AND be able to do so regardless of operating system I choose to boot.
The traditional hierarchial manner of organizing files is a complete waste of time. Even assuming you can actually find anything again, you’ve already wasted several hours performing the initial organization. I like the idea of being able to store a photo with some tags or other meta data and then be able to SEARCH it instead of browsing for it. It would be nice if this ability were built directly into the file system though. WinFS and Apple’s spotlight seem promising so I may set out to investigate their potential at some point in the future.
Alrighty, I finally tracked down a link to v.06 of the Touhou lossless music collection so there should be an update once I get off my lazy hind-quarters and load all the cuesheets from it into the database. (Probably the end of the month)
Update: A link to the DB can be found here: http://touhoumusic.rrbits.com/
I am exceedingly lazy, so I made a one-liner random password generator.
How it works: Creates an md5 from a random string, packs this into binary representation, base64 encodes that, strips some of the characters used by base64 (most importantly the = that are typically at the end), and then limits it to 8 characters. It’s been broken out here on several lines to make modifying it a bit easier.
(Could make longer passwords by changing what’s allowed and providing more text to base64_encode or hexadecimal to pack.)
$randpw = substr(
), 0, 8);
