hostee notes

New from the MySociety genii:, capsule the curiously-capitalised PlaceOpedia. Think Google Maps ? Wikipedia. Brilliant. Except that, as I write, all the links read


  1. well posting written posts seems to work, haven’t put a picture up yet. Thanks. ER… what exactly do I miss out on not having FTP access?

  2. Don’t worry about me. I’ve moved to my own domain, so deletetheweb is just forwarding at this point.

  3. heheh, @John: I read that as ‘posting well-written posts seems to work’, which I thought was a nice touch by JJ. If only all weblogs had such a feature.

  4. John: Not a whole lot, frankly, unless you want to diddle with your templates more heavily than Movable Type’s interface allows.
    Mija: I’m aware, but the 403 broke the forwarding too. Blech. Should be OK now: I’ll probably leave /mija as it currently is.
    Richard: Shh! That’s my secret project, inverting the usual spam filter plug-ins so they block crap posts. Adaptive Bayesian algorithms rock: I have another filter that tells you whether job offers are pants or not.

  5. oh well that’s okay, heaven forbid that I should want diddle with my templates.

  6. Hah. What about girls, JJ? Do you have a filter to tell you in advance whether someone is worth going for?
    That would be you rich beyond the dreams of Cresus.

  7. I suspect wealth of this nature, Richard, is wrapped up in the whole FTP template thing that Mr Sanderson is now withholding from us.

  8. Eh? Did something break?
    FTP – I tried that a while back and broke lots of things, so stopped before I broke anything else :O
    I notice Mija’s asks you for passwords and things.

  9. Yes, Alan, it’s all your fault. Ahem.
    Mija’s site is passworded, but that’s nothing to do with my hosting – that’s all at her new site (deletetheweb simply forwards your browser to her new home, and that’s what’s behind a password wall).

  10. Alan, if you want access to my blog, send me an email and I’ll send you the password. I got tired of spambots and also worried a bit about random netizens oogling pictures of the baby.

  11. I note JJ is silent on the whole FTP/relationship algorithm thing. I suspect, John, you might be onto something.
