  1. GameTonight? 2.0

    GameTonight?

    Spurred on by the discovery that all of the data sources I’d been using had disappeared, I spent yesterday frantically getting GameTonight? working again; and did so by finishing the 2.0 re-design. If there is a game tonight, then the background changes to an interior shot of the appropriate stadium/arena. When there isn’t a game,…

  3. GitHub Activity WordPress Plugin

    I wanted to better expose stuff I’m doing on GitHub that I may not be actvely blogging about1, so I decided to pull in my GitHub activity feed and show it in the Projects page sidebar.

  7. Twitter Tools 3.0.4: Twitter v1.1 API Compatibility

    I’ve released Twitter Tools version 3.0.4 which now uses the Twitter v1.1 API. Since Twitter has turned off the 1.0 API, this is pretty much a “must upgrade” situation. If Twitter Tools has been active for you over the last few days, you’ll need to do a little cleanup: enable the Tweet admin screens delete…

  9. GameTonight, now with Event Times

    I’ve updated GameTonight to show the time of the event. This is also included in the JSON API and Status Board output. No guarantees that the event times are correct, but they are faithfully represented from the data feed. This is something that I put off for three years because I was having all sorts…

    I’m very pleased today to announce the release of Capsule, the developer’s code journal. Capsule replaces the scratch document you have open when you’re coding.

  12. GameTonight Now Understands MLB Preseason

    If you rely on GameTonight, you’ll be happy to know that it now understands the MLB pre-season schedule. The Grapefruit and Cactus league games should no longer be causing a “Yes” response when you check to see if there is a game tonight in your metro. Example: Denver This post is part of the project:…

    I’ve just released an initial beta of Threads, a WordPress plugin I’ve been working on for about a year. The idea is simple: show posts that comprise a single overall story/topic in a timeline.

  14. Social 2.8

    Social 2.8 (courtesy of MailChimp) was released today. This release was primarily to change over to using version 1.1 of Twitter’s API. Why should you care? Well, for one thing – the 1.0 API was starting to break and not get repaired in places. For example, you might have noticed that Social was no longer…

    Fullscreen Editor Preview Button Screenshot

    I updated my fullscreen editor preview button plugin for WordPress 3.5 and decided to release it as a plugin on WordPress.org. Mainly, this meant writing a README (and creating a proper repo for it on GitHub). This is a simple one-trick-pony plugin – it adds a Preview button to the fullscreen editor toolbar. Nothing more,…
