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 Upgraded to!

I upgraded this site to use the latest Roller version and everything appears to be humming along rather nicely. I did run across one issue in that I had to re-number all my Blogrolling bookmarks. It appears the priority now has the opposite effect it did in the last release. I also somehow (I don't remember updating it) managed to set my homepage to the Contact page when testing everything, so I don't know if that's an upgrade glitch or human error. Probably the latter, updating it via the Editor UI fixed the problem (after I downgraded and the problem was still there!). Update: it appears there is a bug in this release, where only pages that don't have an underscore (_) show up in the drop-down of available homepages. This bug has been documented in JIRA.

BTW, the blogs are rated by update frequency, and I have some new ones to add soon. Since I'd like to keep this list at a reasonable size, the once-a-week updaters will be gone. I've been using NetNewsWire lately to read blogs - so I'll still be reading, just not referring.

I especially like the new referers feature, (Dave Rules!) which can be called using macros.showReferers(), macros.showReferers(max) or macros.showReferers(max, maxWidth). To get rid of the dot to the left of each link, simply add the following to your site's stylesheet:

ul.rReferersList {
    list-style: none
    margin-left: 0;
    padding: 0;
