theater nota beneI upgraded, another pLog powered site, last weekend to the upcoming bugfix release (1.0.2). After a medium to large mess with the database during the upgrade process (guess I should have tested the wizard before), everything is working smooth now. is running pLog since version 0.3.2 and was never upgraded because I wrote a contact form plugin for that version and the plugin framework got improved massively afterwards for version 1.0 (but was not backward compatible). I finally took the time to rewrite it (badly hacked) to make it work with the new framework, and I'm glad I've done it. :) I hopefully get the time to work a bit more on that plugin to release it to the community. Can't do it for now, It'd be too embarrassing to show the code to anybody...

BTW: Check out the nice favicon - was very easy to create with the FavIcon from Pics online service. ;-)

Finally satisfied with my iPod Shuffle

iPod shuffleAfter Apple released it's very thin iPod nano, which features a screen and supports standard mp3 player like storage of mp3s, I first thought I might sell my 1GB iPod shuffle and buy me a nano.
Although the shuffle has the ideal form factor for my needs, and I don't really need a display nor more storage, I was constantly unhappy with iTunes, which I think is a clunky piece of software. Making things worse, the shuffle doesn't support copying files manually (via filesystem), it needs software that builds the proprietary database to index the files in the playlist.
I've read of a plugin for winamp before, but as I'm not using Winamp5 as a player, I wasn't too keen on trying this either. Today I thought, I should do a search on for better alternatives and bingo! I found a really small tool called iPod shuffle Database Builder. One Python script (18KB) or, alternatively one Win32 binary (8KB) is all I needed to copy over to the iPod shuffle. Every time I remove or add files I run the script or the binary once (depending on what OS I'm on). It's dead easy and beautiful in it's simplicity - couldn't fit better with my shuffle :) ready for Prime Time :)
