I couldn’t help laughing when I read Mako’s adventure with spam. What if a Nigerian email you, sincerely requesting collaboration on a project, or expressing a business interest in what you do? Well, this is what happens – your spam filter does not mark the mail as spam, while you do.
Mako’s blog makes me smile – almost always, and is now a daily read for me. How I wish he linked to individual entry pages from the title of posts. Each time I want to write about something he wrote about, I end up looking through the :
06:22 | reflections | # | Comments: 0
at the bottom of the post (for which I have to scroll down, first, or I don’t see them), and then i have to figure out which of those links is the right one for the post. WordPress has spoilt me, I tell you!
Mako’s blog is powered by Bloxsom, which is not GPLed,
or as far as I can tell, distributed under a free-software license, which enables folks to redistribute modified versions. It also does not put a “generator” tag in the source of the feeds it produces, and is the first tool I have noticed that doesn’t put that feed in there (there may be more). A discussion with Matt a long time ago had concluded with the reasoning that looking for the generator tag in the feeds was the best way to identify the tool used to publish a blog. Not any more, I guess.
Alright, so Mako, want to step into the wonderful world of WordPress? Moving is easy.
P.S. This post started heading towards one destination and ended up somewhere I never intended to end up when I started writing it. Sort of like how I spend my days – lots of things are accomplished but the plan usually goes out the window – have to fix this.
