Extending Snipsnap (superceded)

This article, which was originally about how to extend snipsnap & was copied across from the snipsnap bliki on 20th June 2013, I gave up on Snipsnap later in the year, and the project has been abandoned by its authors. This content is thus pretty much superseded and the title but not the link has changed to reflect this.. There has been some minimal reformatting undertaken. There are two idioms used which are snipsnap specific; they have been left as originally published and are now a nonsense. Other things will read oddly as I did not pursue my plans. Embedding Disqus broke the backup utility, or more accurately broke the restore. Continue reading “Extending Snipsnap (superceded)”

Configuring BG2

Other people’s wisdom

I have amended this snip as it came across. The ‘related posts’ plugin picks up cross references and so I have deleted references to articles on this wiki.

I copied a post from forgotten wars forums about managing the software build. I posted this on my static web site, but while tidying it up in April 2009, I uploaded it here BG2 Filesystems. I originally said “Snapshot & Fast Restores! – An article taken from the now defunct forgotton wars site. It’s about how once one has created a “vanilla” build, a safe snapshot copy can be taken quite economically in terms of time & space.” It was written by someone who called themselves Michel.

Valancia

We visited Valencia in Sept. 2009. One of the sights we visited was the Americas Cup port and museum. The showdown between Alinghi and BMW/Oracle will now take place off the port of Valencia in February 2010. You can see my pictures in this Valencia set on flickr. The page notes the 2010 America’s cup match which Oracle won 3-0 and my notes on how to get there, this an next time. Continue reading “Valancia”

RSS Auto Discovery

I need to do this for the various RSS feeds I create.

How?

Isn’t google wonderful? See Peter Freitag’s article on his blog. Peter refers to browsers displaying the RSS feed address behind a button, this went out of fashion

Roller

Dave Johnson writes about it at this article on his blog

and Matt Montgomery of sun pointed me at this macro for Roller

Meta

I copied this across on 18th July 2013, it’s been a long time since I looked at this, and the disappearance from the browser url text box is an annoyance, wonder if user styles could compensate. Wonder why it went away.

Example

The blog documents the RSS autodiscovery LINK meta tag and I repeat it here.

Plazes

I used Plazes for a couple of years, until they turned it off. Like everything it has a wikipedia page; one of its delights was the automatic way that once configured your laptop would record your itinerary, and publish it through a web widget. Bit spooky. Obviously built by people that ‘got’ social, and in Europe too, which was why it was bought by Nokia in 2012 and almost certainly part of windows phone now.

I had a fairly detailed page in which I recorded notes on how to use the network, and its features. It was linked to their getsatisfaction site which they used to mange their customer correspondence.

I blogged about it at my Sun blog, here… is a search list from the oracle site and once on the old bliki. When I left Sun I blogged, about it on the snipsnap bliki here….

BG2 Multiplayer

These notes were originally created in 2008/2009. I copied them across to this wiki in 2013. Many of the links referred to are no longer available.

I want to run BG2 multiplayer across my network hub. There seems to be a problem with local i.e. 192.168.0.0 addresses. This may be by design, although I can’t for the life of me think why. This research will involve understanding the game software and the hub, not to mention the various firewalls involved. Continue reading “BG2 Multiplayer”
