Sit. Stay. But This Blog Has Moved (April 26, 2005 11:51 PM)
Well it was easy. In between commercials on Tuesday night TV, and a late night burst of extra excitement, I have moved this entire weblog into its new home, hosted very happily in a WordPress 1.5 blog. I was not sure how much would export over (actually everything did), so... «more»

IM This Entry (April 22, 2005 11:21 PM)
I just added a new feature to this blog's templates, likely the last tweak I will do as I am rather dead set on moving soon to WordPress (especially after seeing D'Arcy's demo of the flickr gallery plugin). The new feature is a link along the front page and archive... «more»

The Dog Barfed Up Some Comments (April 14, 2005 03:26 PM)
Although I noted yesterday that my own technical gaffs had erase all of our blog comments going back to September 2004, I did comb through the last database dump from early March 2005 and sifted out the legit comments for Sept 2004 - March 3, 2005, so the loss was... «more»

Captcha Spammers! Fugggedaboddit (April 8, 2005 11:02 PM)
It's a new spam free day for CogDogBlog and our other affiliated MovableType 2.661 blogs here. I've successfully integrated James Seng's captcha plugin, so that all comment posts require a human to type in a randomly generated security code that appears on screen as a graphic image or 'captcha'. Spambots... «more»

CDB Greatest Hits All 837 of 'em (March 29, 2005 08:38 PM)
Since I am pondering doing the MovableType to WordPress conversion, I've done a bit of reflecting on the last two years of blogging. Nothing profound has emerged, but I did start to think about the part of a blog post I spend the most time on (obviously it is not... «more»

Now the iPodless Podcaster (February 26, 2005 06:23 PM)
Day number 578 without an iPod... No, I have no intent to start regular podcasts, enough other people with velvety FM radio D.J. type voices that never say "ummm" are at it already. There is no time to jump into this endeavor. But never say never. On the other hand,... «more»

Keeping Tabs on Comments in Multiple Author Blogs (MovableType) (February 20, 2005 10:13 AM)
With exceptions of newer systems (yes, Drupal fans, that is you), many blog software packages are designed from the perspective of single author weblogs, but with some digging you can expand their functionality for multi-author sites. We've recently released the Low Threshold Applications (LTA) site, recast as a blog from... «more»

Spam Slithered in the MT Cracks (February 12, 2005 10:30 AM)
Worrisome. I just got Movable Type (2.661) comment spam on entries in one of my blogs where the database has been set via comment closing routines to turn the allow comments to the value that closes them. How is it possible for the roach to sneak in? I had hoped... «more»

Roll Your Own MT Search Bookmarklet (February 5, 2005 10:09 PM)
Now that the Furl-Delicious-Frassle-CiteULike-Connotea-Bag Bookmarklet Tool (a simepl web form to help you build a one click browser bar tool for adding web sites to various collections) seems to be working-- I decided to make another tool. This one helps you create a browser bar button for quick searching of... «more»

Better MT-ing 3: All Your Archives Are Wrong (January 12, 2005 09:11 AM)
Getting back to our series on better blogging, on this one I make the bold contention (ducking tomatoes) that all (well most) weblog software packages create archives the wrong way. It is not that they cannot do it better, but for the most part, the out of the blox... «more»

MovableType Multiple Author Blogs / Contribution Lists (December 21, 2004 03:19 PM)
As reported a few times before, I have been prying time here and there to work on a prototype web site, that replaces a current, hand edited Low Threshold Applications web site with a dynamic one authored in MovableType. I am just polishing off a new add-on hack that uses... «more»

Better MT-ing 1: Naming Files To Your Advantage (December 15, 2004 11:38 PM)
What's in a file name? Well it is the URL that you will publish, so make the most of it. You can make room for flexibility in your blogs if you set things so all content created is published as *.php rather than *.html. What is PHP? A long... «more»

Better MT-ing in 6 Bites (December 15, 2004 09:54 AM)
I've been at the blogging biz using MovableType (MT) since April 19, 2003, and along the way I've been putting aside some ideas for things I have done beyond the out of the box set up that might help others. Also, since I am still living in the free... «more»

MT Upgrade Dance (2.6 to 3.1) Steps... Advice? (December 9, 2004 05:27 PM)
Appearances, aside, I copy others quite often... and reading Scott's note on successful migration from MovableTYpe 2.x to 3.1, I am pondering dragging the CogDog up a notch. I'd resisted for a while because (a) The blog is doing fine as as; and (b) I have about 12 MT blogs... «more»

MT Blog Search Bookmarklet (December 5, 2004 11:07 PM)
I am a bit amazed I never thought of this earlier... the primary use for CogDogBlog is pure selfish- tracking things or projects so I can have a record I can find later. More often than not, i am trying to remember a site or reference from a few months/years... «more»

Ocotillo Action Group Calendars Fed to Web Sites (September 28, 2004 05:23 PM)
In yet another feat of "faux syndication", we now have our events database updating our Ocotillo Central and Action Group blog sites automatically. This provides a dynamic link from the info on the main Ocotillo Events calendar which has unique URLs for the following views: All Action Group Events General... «more»

Spam Test (September 24, 2004 01:40 PM)
The demo blog I set up for the Low Threshold Applications site as the pro-bestiality cluns, the online gambling groups, and the freaky flesh photographers and their assorted scary friends have been paying daily visits. I have a new scheme which has plugged them up pretty good, so I am... «more»

ecto-ing from a PC (August 27, 2004 10:53 AM)
I am just testing the Windows version of ecto, the MovableType desktop editor. I am offering it to our newbie bloggers in the interest of making it easier for them to edit their Ocotillo Action Group blogs.. It is about the same as the Mac version, different panes, buttons in... «more»

RSS Feeds for Comments/Trackbacks Per Blog Post (August 18, 2004 11:52 PM)
I cannot remember why I started down this MT template path, but it was a fun journey. Somehow I stumbled into Phil Ringnalda's explanation on how to create RSS feeds for individual entries and comments. This seemed interesting- often when you write a comment to someone else's blog, there is... «more»
