Shifted to

Category : mac and the internet

This site has been loading too slowly for quite some time now and the server has been resisting TextWrangler posts via FTP, so I am finally shifted to which I just setup.

If you bookmarked this page as then you needn't change anything. That URL will point to the wordpress page in an hour or so. If you are subscribed to my RSS feed at, that will be updated too.

A blog is a very useful thing

I hardly blogged this past month, but I found myself searching my blog for various bits of information. I have also had to point students and non-blog reading friends to specific posts for purposes of both work and play. A journal of events, links, alerts and information is pretty useful and cannot be adequately replaced just by jaiku, and flickr.

Bye bye Samzdat

I will miss my unique and fast blogging method with the Samizdat engine that Bernard Teo introduced me to 2003. I've stuck to this engine stubbornly, and got help to fix the date/time stamp, battled to fix the rss feed and finally integrated haloscan comments.

Then I used it for Habitatnews and Raffles Museum News. The latter was to Wordpress when I left the museum but Habitatnews is still standing. I will probably shift that too. So its sayonara Samizdat, after four years of wonderful service!

MarsEdit takes just seconds to set up and post to wordpress or blogger, a very useful thing with my various project and module blogs. It eclipses ecto (for simple users) so I finally started using it in 2007. When I could not figure out how to edit this blog with it, I decided to switch by year-end. I am content at least that gadget man Kevin opportunistically filmed me blogging and produced a very nice clip you can find all over the net!
