Snipsnap Problems

This was copied across from the snipsnap bliki on 26th July. It’s all a bit redundant now, but it might be useful for others. This was a pagfe that documented my work in building the configuration and in some places represented a work in progress. In some cases, the resolution is not documented and in others I failed to resolve it. I eventually gave up on snipsnap. Hope this page helps someone! Continue reading “Snipsnap Problems”

NWN Playing a Druid

I am taking a Druid through Shadows of Udrentide. There’s a couple of class specific quests which are quite nice. I have reached the Asabi Camp as a Druid/Barbarian/Shifter (7,1,1) and am having some difficulty. I notice that Ashtara has very few Druid’s scrolls and not that many heals or even cure critical. Actually he has them, its just I have no Gold and they’re expensive. In this page, I discuss the difficulty I find with the Druid, the weakness of the companion &the importance of the starting WIS. This page points at a number of URLs that may no longer be there. Continue reading “NWN Playing a Druid”

Instant Messaging and Chat

This article has not matured well. I had been planning to write a blog, which discussed the current attempts led by Google to re-enclose the chat communities.  The landscape had changed, with Google, in the spring of 2013 shit-canning Google Reader and crippling XMPP in Google Talk. I meant to write something on the modern enclosure movement, the closest I got was my blog article, “A bad week for RSS”. My thoughts on the impact of the NSA/GCHQ monitoring scandal and personal behaviour with respect to chat was posted in a article called “Stable Doors and Missing Horses…”, on my blog. The rest of this article is how to use multi-protocol chat. Continue reading “Instant Messaging and Chat”

Google Talk

I first attempted this in August 2008. I have successfully configured Pidgin 2.0.1 to act as a client although in one case I have two channels between me and my correspondent. One of the reasons was to have a second XMPP chat service to test my problems with Pidgin and my work’s XMPP server. See Pidgin on this site, and I have written this up on my old Sun blog, at an article called google talk and pidgin, published on 10th October 2008. Continue reading “Google Talk”

Snipsnap Portlets

Snipsnap Portlets

This is an article about Snipsnap. There are a number of snips in the database called snipsnap-portlet-n. These will be displayed on a snipsnap page with a known class name, so CSS can be written for them.

I documented the code of the sidebar on the original wiki, partly as a backup. To edit the sidebar, use snipsnap-portlet-1. To see the code today, you’ll have to go to the Snipsnap site.
