A face-lift and an update

November 25, 2012 |

It’s been right around a year since I posted last in the blog, and I figured it was time for an update, after someone commented on my How to Handle Online Harassment blog post and a code error prevented me from approving and replying.

A couple new things have happened that have kept me out of the how-to-tech world as much as I have been in the past. Read More

TweetSuite WordPress Plugin + Ping.fm (Preview)

March 21, 2009 | | 2 Comments

A couple weeks ago, I found out that Twitter had a Search feature that showed real-time tweets for a keyword. I gave it a little thought, considered what it would take to actually write the software – and then wised up, and decided to see if someone already did the hard work.

Sure enough, Dan Zarrella over at danzarrella.com had. He wrote one for Tweetbacks, and then expanded on it with TweetSuite. So I gave them a shot.

I started with Tweetbacks on the FreeformFrog.com Blog and everything seemed to be working fine – until one day when the Tweetbacks stopped. It just stopped finding them – even though I knew they were getting tweeted – because I was using Ping.fm to syndicate my blog posts to the appropriate social networks.

I gave it a couple weeks, and then decided I was going to fix it. I was tired of not having my TweetBacks working – especially during my efforts pushing a Social Networking campaign at job.

So, I added @danzarrella, and asked…

@danzarrella do you have plans to integrate ping.fm posting in TweetSuite? If not, mind if I take a crack at it?

How to sync your program’s plugins using Live Mesh

March 14, 2009 |

I’m sure you’ve been at work, thinking “Crap, I don’t want to go home and do this, because I don’t have the software there.” Or maybe you do have the software, but you don’t have some certain set of plugins (i.e. Photoshop Brushes for a graphic designer), and you need a way to get those things synchronized in both places at once. ***As such, this experiment implies that I will NOT be using this program in two locations simultaneously.*** (That’s not to say that it can’t be done – but it is to say that it will require more human intervention to resolve the file version conflicts than I wish to do.)

Well, I have an answer – and this example will use the Digsby Instant Messenger client. (I’ll get technical after the story below.) Here’s a little background… Read More
