Now I've gone and done it again.

Well. Here we are. Whoops!

Yet another blog software change… and this time with a redesign.

I’d appreciate your dropping a comment if it looks like things have gone horribly, horribly wrong.

Oh, 10 points to the person who can guess what I’m holding in that picture up there.
A couple of very geeky things to point out:

  1. The RSS feed is still not 100% the way I want it (I need to hack in some more stuff to Drupal)… but it’s getting there… I want full text feeds, but now it’s only doing excerpts… better than before, at any rate.
  2. NOTE: The RSS feed url has changed to
    • Please adjust your rss readers and syndicators.
    • I will attempt to have the old feeds at index.xml, index.rdf, etc redirect to the new feed url, but no promises that will work
  3. I attempted to migrate all the old blog entries and reader comments. It was mostly successful:
    • pMachine mutilated any urls I entered so there’s a lot of strange "[url" stuff in the old entries. I’ll slowly work my way through to clean those up
    • Many comments I made are out of order (it has to do with registered vs. non-registered users threaded discussions)
    • I didn’t bother transfering categories… I’m very excited about Drupal’s taxonomy system as a means to categorize. I’ll, again, have to work through the archives, slowly.
  4. You can check on my progress by following this node
  5. I have two major contributions to make back to the Drupal open source community:
    • Ability for anonymous users to make comments
    • migration instructions for pMachine

Okay. There you have it.

FCC's Vote against Net Nuetrality is a disservice to museums

Yesterday, the FCC voted to repeal the 2015 Open Internet Order and dismantle the order’s strong net neutrality rules (New York Times summary of what happened).

Automatically Unshortening Links in Wordpress Posts

On this site, I have the Broken Links Checker Plugin chugging away in the background. He tirelessly checks and rechecks every link in every post to find URLs that no longer work; pages sometimes just disappear. In most cases, I’m able to use the Internet Archive Wayback Machine to
