Back to blogging on WordPress and some more things

First of all, but actually last of all: kasper.re, this is my new English language blog, based on WordPress. WordPress is just a lot better for blogs it seems. Live and learn. I'll keep this Drupal site just because it's too much pain to convert everything into WordPress but I might move parts of it to the WordPress sites.

Then last month I started deletionpedia v2 to archive deleted Wikipedia articles.

Working on an SEO tool

Google Analytics ceased to be useful for SEO quite a while ago. Over the past two years I moved my analysis elsewhere. Finding myself doing the same things over and over again in Google Webmaster I decided to automate things a little bit. Things have progressed quickly and now it looks like this:

My move to WordPress has proven te be quite fruitful. Not as many long posts as I hoped, but instead I managed to work.

WordPress command line interface

Drush is an amazing tool to manage Drupal installation from the command line. The other day I was once more annoyed at the lack of such tool for dealing with WordPress, more specifically keeping a WordPress site up-to-date. I started coding and quickly I had a couple of useful commands. But then I stumbled upon WP-CLI

Brussels Zen Car not Zen

I had heard of Zen Car before. A system with which you can rent electric cars in Brussels. I had also looked at the prices before. It seemed a bit too expensive, with a registration of 40 euro and between 5 and 9 euro per hour - with the added inconvience that you can only really go 100 km with the machine. Still, I thought it was a nice initiative and in March some people told me there's a special 3 euro deal where you get to try the system for 3 months, including over 100 or so euro credit.

Upgraded guaka.org to Drupal 7, moneyless

It was about time. I finally managed to upgrade guaka.org to Drupal 7. It was actually very easy once I had my Aegir setup fixed. I just needed to migrate the site to the Drupal 7 platform. Like often with technology, Aegir can be quite nice when things work smoothly.

Next I have to clean up the site a little bit and customize the Bootstrap theme that I chose as a base theme.

Some new projects: vegan, velo and greengeek.nl

A couple of months ago someone asked me to set up wikis about busking and abou veganism. A wiki about veganish things had been on my mind for a while. I just didn't directly want to register another domain name. I started looking around and found wiki.yt was still free. So I started vegan.wiki.yt, a website with information for vegans and wannabegans. It's growing fast and we already have more than 100 articles.

meteor-phonegap and Radio Meteor

Soma FM is probably the best internet radio station around. Actually, the best collection of radio stations, as there are quite a few different channels they broadcast. Unfortunately their website is not so great for quickly listening to one of the soma streams. Until a month ago I usually ended up using some command-line wizardry to listen to groovesalad or dronezone.

Rest in peace, Taylor

UPDATE: You could send flowers to family's address: 6989 Owen Rd, Lantzville B.C. V0R2H0 Canada. (if you have to enter a name, the family name is Booth) - or plant a nut or fruit tree somewhere in Taylor's memory.

Been very sad today. I woke up this morning hoping it was just a dream. But it wasn't.
