@five15design Looking forward to your return 🙂
@five15design Thought this might be of interest to you … https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/jabopobgcpjmedljpbcaablpmlmfcogm. Lets you know what font a website is using.
@NinjaLikesCheez Yeah, but not everyone following me on Twitter is in my Google+ circles. You are, hence you can see it when logged in.

@matthancocknz What are you doing here? I'm in the Distiller office if you want to visit. I leave tomorrow morning for Wellington though.

My day = lots of work, but not a lot of productive work. Lots of chasing my own code tail.
Hpmhhpt …. attempt to update live website = epic fail. Back to the drawing board 🙁
Looks like I'll be negotiating my way past drunks and vomit on the way home this evening courtesy of the #RWC2011Final
RIP Marco Simoncelli. 🙁 #motogp
Apparently I am a bad Kiwi for not having my eyes glued to the TV right now. Meh.
Annddd, MORE DNS problems 🙁 My sites are all up, but every sub-domain on the main network domain is broken 🙁
@danmilward Everything should be back to normal now. Whew! Should run a little quicker too as we've been upgraded to a bigger box 🙂
Ohhh, not only moved to a newer server, but a faster one too thanks to @uberhost support 🙂
30 mins from reporting server error to being upgraded to a bigger faster server thanks to @uberhost support!
Thanks to Rick from @uberhost, 90% of my sites are now back online and upgraded to a brand new server 🙂 Thanks Rick!
@danmilward Our site is gonna be down for a bit. Catastrophic server failure. Moving servers as I type this. I am grumpy bumpy!!!!
Why did my serve need to die at 3am in the morning? I was about to go to sleep 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁
Awww man, server down. Need to move servers. Hassle. 1x grumpy Ryan 🙁
Dangit! It seems all my websites are malfunctioning due to some sort of catastrophic server failure 🙁

@hafizrahman Thanks 🙂
@andreasnrb Thanks. I'll use the built in function now, but will keep that in mind in case I need to use a raw SQL query in future.
@itsananderson Awesome 🙂 That's even better!
@andreasnrb Thanks. I'll use that then 🙂
@andreasnrb Thanks. Do you have any idea how much load that would put on the server?
@andreasnrb Actually, an SQL query might be a bit rough too if the site had thousands upon thousands of posts perhaps.
I could use get_posts() and just yank out every single post, but that would be horridly inefficient. I need something a lot faster.
@andreasnrb Any idea what that query would look like? I suck at MySQL.
Do any smarty pants out there know what the most efficient way to calculate how many blog posts are present in a WordPress powered site is?
RT @webmyc: let's try again – @twitter – this is ridiculous and it's been going on for more than 5 months. Romania is not Russia! http:/ …
@andreasnrb Yep. I've made it in a bread maker but never by hand before until this evening, or at least not successfully.
My first successful attempt at baking bread from scratch. It's nomalicious 🙂 http://bit.ly/nommybread : http://goo.gl/LgmFL
I swear I've been barely trying today, yet bugs have been killed like ants in a fire. Hopefully this cruisy work life-style continues!
@nicki_nz If you are hacking core WordPress code then you are probably doing something wrong.
@nicki_nz What core files were you needing to hack?
Replacement for WordPress plugin interface for multi-site. Opinions? … http://bit.ly/rgQbOZ
@andrea_r I'll put on my list of things to do. I'd need to think some more about how to do it. Current version is just a site specific hack.
@andrea_r I didn't actually think anyone would want it.
@andrea_r Do you think I should turn it into a usable plugin? It wouldn't work on anything but my site right now.
@Ipstenu You may recognise one of the plugins it was made by this cool chick in Chicago, USA 🙂
@Ipstenu @andrea_r I made my own page for activating plugins. Avoids confusion over what a "plugin" is … http://bit.ly/pbF7uA
@Ipstenu @andrea_r Does the Mu folder behave any different to a network-activated plugin now?

Download counter now available in the PixoPoint Auto Update plugin … https://geek.hellyer.kiwi/2011/10/14/download-counter-for-update-plugin/
@SiobhanPMcKeown WordPress has always annoyed me with the way it modifies content constantly like that. I wish it would just leave it alone!
@SiobhanPMcKeown My guess is that it's the specific HTML you are using. Perhaps pastebin it so we can try it out ourselves.
@Phillip_Copley If you aren't free at the moment, lemme know so I can send them elsewhere 🙂
@Phillip_Copley I've been bombed with WordPress theme work requests today, so referred some of them in your direction.
@SiobhanPMcKeown What sort of code do you have within the <code> tags?
@danmilward Sure. Wellington sounds good. I'll see what flights I can get.
@danmilward Here's the excellent plugin installer by @jthomasgriffin and @GaryJ that I suggested yesterday … http://bit.ly/oVbHTb
@danmilward Am gonna conk out, need sleep. Will forward Magazine beta when up. Will be fully functional apart from needing plugins installed
@danmilward Half of bug fixed. Inadvertently found a performance improvement in the process. Brain starting to hurt.
@danmilward Yeah, definitely need a demo button. I'll chat with you about that some time as I have an awesome but convoluted idea.
@danmilward doing my best to get it done before morning
@danmilward Thanks Dan 🙂
Mental note: ALWAYS prefix things with something specific to your app! Darned naming clashes are going to cost me a lot of time tonight 🙁
@danmilward Next trunk update for @wppaintbrush will have ability to use child themes 🙂 That had been hurting my brain for a while now.

@dyedredlaura It baffles my mind why people like those things. They're pretty, but totally un-userfriendly IMO. I hate them with a passion.
@dyedredlaura I agree. Kinda crazy how complex they make something so simple. All other MP3 players I've used are much simpler.

@milo317 I'm thinking a download counter might be a nice addition too.
@milo317 I ended up turning my email into a blog post and plugin page … https://geek.hellyer.kiwi/2011/10/05/auto-update-plugin-created/
@milo317 I'll send an email through in about an hour with an explanation of how it works etc. If it's up to scratch, I'll blog it too.
@milo317 It doesn't work with Dropbox, you need to host them on the server itself. Support for that could easily be added though.
@justinrouch Thanks for your latest WPCandy post. That was exactly what I was looking for 🙂 … http://wpcandy.com/reports/the-tgm-plugin-activation-class-on-github
@milo317 I just did a live test of the theme updater and it worked sweet as 🙂 I've built a plugin for WP which handles the server side too.
@milo317 yep, if you want a copy of the code just lemme know
@WraithKenny Thanks 🙂
@WraithKenny Thanks for your help 🙂
@WraithKenny WP seems to be caching it weird and not updating the cache when I hit "Check again". Odd. But it seems to work fine.
@WraithKenny Ah. I fixed that not long actually. But it still wasn't updating.
@WraithKenny Thanks. But who and in which thread?
