Plugin Props

Friday, April 28th, 2006

I was very happy to find Alex King's Fix Greedy Rewrite Category plugin. It's simple and brilliant. Check the PHP if you're into such things and you'll see what i mean. Alex's plugin tames Wordpress 2.0's aggressive URI munching. This is important, because the multiple feeds I keep promising depend on tagging with Ultimate Tag Warrior, and with my permalink scheme Wordpress 2.0 eats URIs like which happens to be what you'd subscribe to if you only wanted to get my "Illudium Podcast" and not any book readings. It may seem that there isn't much danger of getting podiobooks in the main feed, but honest, I'm going to start The Mysterious Matter of Mind Real Soon Now(TM).
As soon as I activated Alex's plugin, all of my tag URIs started working again. So thanks to Alex, I'm running out of excuses for podslacking on the books.

Illudium Podcast #002

Tuesday, April 4th, 2006

I introduce the concept of Podslacking, then procede to lamely attempt to excuse myself. I do some of the song credits in my best NPR voice. I mention that I will soon start offering separate feeds for different types of content. These will mainly be of interest to people who just want to get a particular book or other work I'm reading.
