stick a fork in me – i’m done

it’s the start of day three of plone conference 2006 and I am stuffed with both plone knowlege and lovely delicious fatty food. This hasn’t been as debauched as previous conferences (for the netsight contingent at least) as the jet lag has made us flake out in the evening before we manage to to do… Read more »

Decisions, decisions

The final afternoon and I face the trickiest decision over which session to attend – all three tracks look useful. I wanted to go to Nate Aune’s multimedia and podcasting tutorial, but i’m fairly well up to speed on that already, but it was difficult to decide between the KSS/ Azax and the UI’s 2.0… Read more »

plone conference 2006 seattle

i’m two days into plone conference 2006 and it has all been a bit of a whirlwind so far. I’m eight hours behind UK time and travelled 26 hours to get here after missing our connecting flight in houston, thanks to some helpful individual at passport control who wouldn’t let us jump the queue. so… Read more »

gmail tips – bulk delete using filters

If you are like me and have thousands of unread emails for various mailing lists cloghging up your gmail account, you can bulk delete them (rather than paging through and manually secting then deleting 100 or so at a time), by using a filter, or in my case changing the existing filter to delete any… Read more »

At the moment, my pet plone project DFR skate zine is still live, but because netsight have some devious plans for the server it is on, I am trying to upgrade it to the latest version of plone.

Caffe Nero (the one directly next to Caffe Gusto)

Today I find myself in Caffe Nero on the triangle. I’d always discounted it before because I didn’t realise it had an upstairs bit and I didn’t like the idea of using my laptop downstairs with people queing for coffee looking over my shoulder. I’m presented with three possible wifi connections – StreetNet, SurfandSip and… Read more »

Park street wifi breakfast tour – revisiting Boston Tea Party

I went back to Boston Tea Party today, mainly because i wanted to try Goldbrick House, but it wasn’t open at 8.30am (I checked back later, it opens at 9 – a bit late for pre-work coffee. The girl in there said she thought they had wifi for customer use – not sure whether it… Read more »

Add a user to a group in Invision Power Board

It took me ages to work out how to do this for some reason. The solution was to go in via the Admin Control Panel, find the user (via user search on Admin CP homepage) and edit their profile, which will contain a drop down for primary group and multi-select box for secondary groups –… Read more »
