Two things about posting

1) If you have the delicious blog poster running, and have been wondering how to stop it posting repeatedly on your journal, then sadly the answer is to change your journal password, because something is badly fucked over there, and they aren't responding to bug reports or forum postings. Whoever is in the process of taking it over from Yahoo is utterly incompetent by the looks of things. I'll be triggering a post by hand when I get back home tonight.

2) According to my poll from a few days back, one of the biggest reasons for people not posting is that they don't feel comfortable posting short things. For goodness sake, post them! And if goodness isn't good enough, post them for my sake! Don't feel you need a mega-epic of polished awesomeness to share, just tell us what's going on with you.

My update for the weekend mostly involved hacking with Google App Engine to get the first half of a program in place to allow posting from Delicious to Livejournal*, and going to the Edinburgh Festival Closing Fireworks with Julie, and a few lovely friends/family. Tonight Julie and I are off to meet a wedding photographer. Yay!

*This is taking longer than it would if I was just hacking something basic into place. If you want something for yourself and can handle Python then this will do it for you (courtesy of pw201). I'm trying to put something more general together that can handle multiple users in a useful manner. It'll probably take all week for me to ge the time together though, as I'm seeing people pretty much every evening this week.
