Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Roller Referrals and NetNewsWire Images.

I found out today that my referrals get reset to 0 when my website crashes. Doh! Oh well, it was interesting to see that most of this site's hits come from Google, or at least they did today. I don't want to record them for historical purposes anyway, that's what these stats are for.

I also figured out the problem with displaying images in NetNewsWire - you have to use an absolute reference (i.e. vs. /images/...). I'll see if I can get Brent to change this, how bad would it suck to move your site to a new domain and lose all your images?! This first issue in this bug has been solved by Roller 0.9.6. Looks like Ranchero Software needs to use JIRA, you can't update or comment on a bug once it's entered!

What else am I doing tonight? Drinking a Fat Tire, cooking some Rosemary Chicken for dinner and getting ready to watch the World Series. Go Angels! I really don't care who wins, but I bet my mom $10 since she wanted the Giants to win. My mother-in-law is coming into town tonight, so it might be a light blogging weekend.

I tried to make this site XHTML-compliant by escaping the HTML in the bookmarklets. This caused Javascript errors, so this site will simply have to remain invalid for a few days.

RSS Validator.

I wish I could say that my RSS feed validates, but alas, it does not. I guess it doesn't like HTML in a site's description. I don't know where I'm getting the language error from, Dave doesn't appear to get it.

[Valid RSS] Update: I updated my website description in Roller to be text with no markup and hard-coded the HTML-rich version in my page template. Now I'm complying with yet another web-standard, yee haw!

New XHTML Validator.

There is a new (beta) version of the XHTML Validator at the W3C. This new version offers a much needed improvement - explanations on why things don't validate, rather than cryptic error messages. This site is not validating mostly because of the bookmarklets - looks like a good 1/2 hour to fix if I do it now (from the library). I'll wait until I get home and have a good HTML Editor to assist me.
