Mixography

A big music update tonight, rounding up missing files from dark and forgotten places long forgotten (or too cheap to pay the premium user subscription). Anyway, I hope you take a moment to drop a listen-in on one or 2 of my mixes. For the new followers I suggest the BCRM exclusive mix, emulating that big underground warehouse night.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for what may turn into a big 2016.

how updating changed

so about 6 years ago (see archived post here) I was trying to get this thing called a ‘moblog’ working using some 3rd party round about technique with 2 mailboxes a bucket of PHP and a lot of soap.

After todays play with URL shortening I have now the set up as follows:

  • post to blog using ‘WordPress for Android’ (HTC Desire phone) or from any web app.
  • blog automatically generates a short URL for the new post (using the scripts on the http://at.mrmule.com subdomain)
  • the post title and short URL are tweeted to mrmu1e
  • a post excerpt is posted to facebook

wo0t!

new look

So after much hassle with MovableType blog, i have taken the plunge and moved over to wordpress. Same content, new look. I hope you find the experience more pleasurable.

I will also be adding a new section called VW Camper which will chronicle the restoration of my 1973 VW Type2 camper van, so stay tuned.

Thanks for reading

MOBLOG

Definition: This is the short form of the phrase ‘mobile blog’ or ‘mobile blogging.’ Mobile blogging is the practice of blogging using mobile devices such as PDAs (personal digital assistants), cell phones, camera phones, telephones, and email. Blogs that are updated using these devices are called ‘moblogs.’
filled with groove?
OK, so i finally got round to bringing my moblog scripts ‘in house’ and running them myself. Mfop2, flickr etc are all probably good, but I want to know where my images are and whts being done to them… at least I still ‘own them’.
At present moveabletype is a real pain in the ass for getting emails and photos to a new post… so I gave up and went with easymoblog for ease of use. I had to hack the code a little to get things displayed as I wanted, and I expect to see more changes on the main page to kind of blend it in a little more with the main blog.
Anywho.. heres the *new* moblog and of course it’s got RSS included for all you Firefox heads out there.
stay tuned!
