Spying on a directory with auditd

Files start coming up missing for me on a server and I get freaked out looking for security holes, but sometimes users and other utilities are spiking the bunch bowl. You can get serious with watching files with other utilities, but I went back to good ole auditd. A simple test to track stuff getting […]

You can get a full list of command line options at: https://www.httrack.com/html/fcguide.html. There is […]

Using HyperDB to separate and share user and user_meta between WordPress installations

I need to remember to keep this example for some testing. This should be a good start for sharing a user and user_meta between websites. I do know that user_meta tends to have very site-centric settings at times. Original article was located at: http://wordpress.aspcode.net/view/63538464303732726666099/how-to-use-hyperdb-to-separate-and-share-a-user-dataset-between-wordpress-installs

Future changes will not affect the old repository, but will be committed to the new repository.

Git local repositories

These are some quick examples and notes related to using git with local repositories. Using local repositories can be helpful maintaining file changes without committing to larger repository systems like Github.

OSX turn off or delay hibernate

Apple’s Mac OSX hibernate can be delayed indefinitely or turned off by issuing this terminal command. To get back to default normal hibernate mode type this terminal command. So the word is this won’t disable hibernate on battery failures. Haven’t tested, hope I won’t have to.

WP Super Edit 2.5

Howdy! WP Super Edit 2.5 is not quite the rewrite I’m hoping to accomplish, but it does make things compatible for WordPress 3.9.1. I’ve completed some of the work needed to make some future changes, removed some old cruft needed for the previous versions of TinyMCE, destroyed most of my experimental code, and made the […]

WP Super Edit 2.4.3

This update attempts to fix some issues related to multi-site languages and other problems I’ve experienced on some complex site configurations. I’ve also added some initial support for the Distraction Free Writing fullscreen button. With the WP_Editor becoming a more solid API I may be able to make some more decent upgrades to WP Super […]

WP Super Edit 2.4

WP Super Edit 2.4 is now available from the WordPress.org Extend repository. It was really time to refresh the included TinyMCE plugins and try to tackle some of the problems I created by moving some functions into separate plugins. Here is a quick list of the notable changes. Update included TinyMCE pluigns to TinyMCE version […]

WP Super Edit 2.3

I am ashamed to officially announce the immediate availability of the WP Super Edit 2.3 WordPress plugin! It’s about as ugly as it’s ever been with less mole-hairs! I’ve been so busy that I’ve only been able to take occasional stabs at fixing problems and adding support for WordPress 3.x. As a visitor and user, […]

WP Super Edit 2.1

This is a minor, yet major update for WP Super Edit. Mostly this version fixes a nasty oversight on my part and updates the plugin for better compatibility with the upcoming release of WordPress 2.7. I also added Font Tools as WP Super Edit plugin instead of adding the Font Face and Font Size drop […]

Yank Widget 1.2

I’ve completed an update to my silly Yank Widget WordPress Plugin. This release includes some minor bug fixes and hopefully some optimizations. Yank Widgets should be more optimized. The plugin checks for pages added to Yank Widget areas on each post or page before trying to query the database for pages added to a Yank […]

Yank Widget 1.0

I’ve decided to release Yank Widget 1.0 for the Weblog Tools Collection Plugin Competition. I wanted to do more for this plugin, but ran out of time.
