WordPress: External RSS Feeds Optimization with KB Advanced RSS

Apart from its own Ice Tea tech blog, Dipot.com also displays two external feeds relating to Optimization and Standards. I needed to optimize the post titles of these two feeds by getting rid of their long suffixes, both for better looks and for more content within the same space.

The feeds were served by the standard […]

Feeds to Content & Categories Optimization in WordPress

At some point I added the category “Bookmarks” in Ice Tea tech. Thanks to the “YAAB” (short for Yet Another Auto Blogger) WordPress plugin, this category automatically gets its content directly from my Delicious feed. This way I get my own copy of what I put up there and my blog gets some added value […]

WordPress Optimization: Compatibility between Themes & Plugins

The first incarnation of Ice Tea tech was in Joomla 1.5. I admit I can’t resist the temptation to tweak my own blog and never got to understand the Joomla philosophy well enough to do it extensively. So, with neTWire‘s help (they set it up for me and successfully imported Joomla days’ posts), I […]

To that extend, the Ice Tea […]

Which Service should a Post go to?

As a result, the chart got more complex than originally […]

Microsoft IE and Standards Compliance

There is an indirect update to my December 16, 2007 “Web browser standards: Opera Software vs Microsoft” post in the “Internet Explorer 8 and Acid2: A Milestone” IEBlog post. The way I see it, Microsoft effectively confirms allegations about not complying with standards (by, at least, not seriously updating IE6 in over 5 years and […]

Your home on camera, live

Two weeks ago I was asked again to install a couple of cameras to watch a newborn baby at home (with the sitter…).

Provided there is an ADSL in the premises, the task is trivial, tech-wise. In this case, the heart of the system is an AVM Fritz ADSL modem, 4 port switch, wireless Access Point […]
