Happy Holidays

To anyone who reads this, happy holidays. Hopefully, I’ll have time during the break to whip up a few programs to share.

As it is, I do have a few improvements to announce. First, I’ve set up a nice new cocktail of anti-spam tools that’s working out wonderfully. (A mix of Akismet, Spam Karma 2, and Bad Behaviour)

Second, I’ve installed Rudd-O’s XHTML validator and my site is now completely XHTML valid, and will stay that way.

Third, I installed a plugin named Sociable, so if you view any of my posts individually, you get that nice little row of icon-links to social bookmarking sites.

Finally, I decided to treat myself too, and I’ve installed a dashbar plugin so I can get to the posting page more quickly since I haven’t had time to get bookmarklet-compatible Javascript enabled in Konqueror.

Oh, and I’ll be adding the following once I have time to fix what seem to be incompatibilities with WordPress 2.x:

  • Dropdown Archives – So you don’t have to scroll so much.
  • Custom Contact – So you can have a contact form in the blog proper.
  • WP Default Post Content – To reduce the amount of effort each post requires.
