Ismo wiki upgrade...

I just upgraded the Ismo wiki to the newest version of DokuWiki. Went fairly smoothly. The hard part was that I had been using a snapshot rather than a release, so my upgrade path didn't follow the prescription precisely.

Now we should be able to avoid those nasty PHP errors that were showing up (likely due to the "snapshot" nature of the previous installation).

PHP variable cleanup...

Needed some quick code to remove some characters from a URL field and replace them with underscores.

Found a short discussion on WebMasterWord that contained this code:

$old_pattern = array("/[^a-zA-Z0-9]/", "/_+/", "/_$/");
$new_pattern = array("_", "_", "");
$file_name = strtolower(preg_replace($old_pattern, $new_pattern , $text_title));

Does anyone know where it goes? It's certainly at a premium. It's got Petrol beat...

If there's anyone out there that knows how to keep one's life balanced, so not to be trapped in the rat-race-weary-stretched-thin-bleary-eyed-driver-to-somewhere-forgotten...please comment below.

Google Calendar

It's out folks. If you haven't tried it yet. You need to: http://calendar.google.com/

Two thoughts:

1. Google needs better privacy policies (and I don't mean the written one).

2. The Open Source world needs to get its act together. We're too splintered, disorganized, and capitalistism-fobic. These are fixable problems: use better licenses (BSD, MIT, Apache, MPL), use and promote open standards, and share between projects wherever possible.

That's all very Google Calendar related in my mind... :)
