@socialspace Wha? If you thought I was not geeky, then you must be thinking of someone else 😉
woop woop, ma @linode is back up and running 🙂 https://ryan.hellyer.kiwi/
Darn it! My server at the Newark @linode data center still appears to be down 🙁 The server gods don't like me today it seems.
Awww, my box in the Newark @linode data center is down 🙁
@webgarb I could, but I trust my Twitter followers more than the popularity listings in the Play store.
@jan_dembowski Thanks. Installing now 🙂
Play has a billion ssh apps for Android. Any recommendations?
@KarinBron I'm not sure what the status is on WP Paintbrush. @danmilward may know more.
@KarinBron I'm not involved with that project anymore sorry. It'll be caused by changes in the theme API in WordPress 3.4 I suspect.
@ferodynamics @KyeLani Norway is awesome!
@ferodynamics @KyeLani What is "demo scene"?
@KyeLani Shocking eh! We even have coloured TV too 🙂
@KyeLani FYI, we're hiring if you are in the mood to move to Norway 🙂 http://www.metronet.no/are-you-our-next-codepoet
@KyeLani I've needed work urgently before too and people always came to the rescue, so am happy to pass it forward 🙂
No idea who this girl is, but she needs WordPress work urgently … @KyeLani. Help if you can please 🙂
@KarinBron I don't know if anyone is monitoring the paintbrush Twitter account now. That bug popped up in WordPress version 3.4 I think.
@bronsonquick Nope. Hadn't seen it. Thanks for the link 🙂 I can consign mine to the plugin graveyard now then.

@andrea_r @markmcwilliams @zedejose That's it! I'm pissed. I'm a girl and I still have no boobs to play with 🙁 Not fair!
@ngaireackerley That was also partly the work of @ronalfy and @scottbasgaard …. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/metronet-reorder-posts/
@webgarb I am apparently a girl in Portuguese; one of the ugliest girls in the history of humankind.
@jennybeaumont You should make your wish happen then 🙂

@ipstenu @andrea_r I hate forking stuff. Already half-arsedly maintaining a Wickett Twitter fork.
@andrea_r @angiemeeker Yuck. That's unfortunate.
@angiemeeker I'm pretty sure SafeCSS has support for that functionality too.
Everyone should come join me in Portugal next month 🙂 http://2012.lisboa.wordcamp.org/2012/08/28/orador-confirmado-ryan-hellyer/ via @WordCampLx #wclx12
@vodafoneNZ We need Google to launch gBank 🙂
@vodafoneNZ I thought Kiwi banks were the worst for security. Then I moved to Norway … seems they're even worse.
@vodafoneNZ Nice to see more companies taking security seriously. I don't think SMS is the best option, but much better than nothing.
RT @vodafoneNZ: The @Dropbox team have enabled two factor authentication, sends txt code to your phone or there's an app too. Nice. http …
@anthonycole I still don't get it? Or will you give it to me when we meet again? #induendo
@Th0masMB The particular theme I was looking at does indeed use TimThumb.
I need a copy of the latest Canvas Woo theme. Anyone able to help? I need to compare it to an older version of it I'm working on.
@JohnPBloch If it's for caching, then using the caching API would make most sense IMO.
@anthonycole I don't get it.
If your WP theme has a "cache" folder in it, you are most likely doing something wrong.
@angiemeeker Sort of. There's a temporary link to it here … https://geek.hellyer.kiwi/products/photocopy/
@ipstenu Double lolz.
@ipstenu lolz. They should be glad you aren't feeling evil today.
@EricMann @Rarst That's a relief. Your country can be a little scary when it comes to this sort of stuf.
@Rarst You'd better watch out, or the great noodly one will strike you down with a furious vengeance.
@Rarst I guess that depends on whether you think I want more rational intelligent people in society or not.
@Rarst Scarily, according that post, 5% of people from the USA consider themselves atheists. WTF?

@kevinjohng Frontpage still counts as a CMS in my books. Just a really crappy one.
@markoheijnen @konstruktors and I were hammering it this morning via ApacheBench, but an external service would be more accurate.
@markoheijnen Do you know of any good external load testing services? I want to see how much traffic it can actually take.
@markoheijnen My old setup was pretty much the slowest WordPress site on the planet. Truly appalling. Glad to be learning how to avoid that.
@markoheijnen I'm on a quest to make my site run faster. 97/100 so far 🙂 http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/MMOwCBDIP/ryan.hellyer.kiwi
@markoheijnen You can do page specific caching by adding a URL check in advanced-cache.php.
@markoheijnen I have zero experience with multi-server setups. No idea on that front sorry.
@markoheijnen APC by @markjaquith on it's own is ideal for uber dynamic sites. No full page caching is used then. It just runs faster 🙂
@markoheijnen Settings are in advanced-cache.php in the batcache plugin. For super dynamic sites it's maybe not use useful.
@markoheijnen You can set it to only serve cached pages when the traffic loads gets excessively high.
@markoheijnen basic use of APC is trivial. Install on server, switch on object caching plugin … instant speed boost 🙂
@markoheijnen FYI, Batcache works with @markjaquith 's APC object cache plugin. No need for memcache despite what the Batcache readme says.
@markoheijnen Makes more sense for single server IMO too.
@markoheijnen I nice fork of Batcache would be good. Not sure I'm the person for that though. Needs a bit more skill I think.
@markoheijnen Coz ya just casually surf websites via the source code 😉
@markoheijnen Oops, I forgot to turn the HTML compression on. Will fix that on the weekend.
@markoheijnen I was wondering when someone would question me about it 😉 I probably won't release it as it's not much different to batcache.
@markoheijnen It's a fork of Batcache. Includes stuff like HTML compression and auto-copies the advanced-cache.php file across like W3 etc.
@ipstenu Would you actually help someone with a Windows server? I'd just run away screaming.
@kevinjohng Another comparison stat … how many aren't using a CMS at all. There's still a lot of static sites out there.
@kevinjohng A more useful stat though might be how many of the NEW sites in the top 1,000,000 are using an open source CMS.
@kevinjohng Interesting stat.
@nakrissimo Did you attend the WordPress meetup in Oslo this evening? Many people there?
@jarlebergersen Sorry about that. A last minute change of Norwegian class schedule put paid to my intentions of coming tonight.
@no_fear_inc @nikolayb Ya'll need more info. posted 😉 http://2012.sofia.wordcamp.org/

@Becs @gcaat Imagine having a giant fat fluffy bird chilling out in your backyard. Can't run away, can't fly away, yet still cute and cuddly
@Becs @gcaat If a company thinks it can make money by selling them as pets, they might bankroll research into breeding them faster.
@Becs @gcaat A friend of mine had a crazy idea about saving them via commercialisation of them.

@danielbachhuber Is there some way I can contact you directly? I have something you may find useful.
@rmccue Can you think of any examples where it could cause problems? I always assumed it was a cookie issue.
@rmccue Isn't the security problem an issue of stealing admin panel cookies?
@rmccue Would messing with cookies be a way to bypass the security problems rather than sanitizing the JS?
@Mamaduka @rmccue @danielbachhuber That's what I thought until hearing otherwise.
@rmccue @danielbachhuber This will be a very nice killer addition to http://WordPress.com.
@rmccue I intended to add revisioning and syntax highlighting eventually.
@rmccue I'll wait to see what @danielbachhuber 's is like first. If it's better, then no point in continuing my own.
@danielbachhuber I needed something ASAP… https://geek.hellyer.kiwi/?p=2395. Once yours is released I'll probably forward people towards that.
@r_diamond Happy Birthday 🙂
@webgarb Thanks for your assistance anyway. I've started writing it now.
@rmccue Also, how the heck do you sanitize JS? That sounds impossibly difficult.
@rmccue Do you need it with security protection? If not, where do you want the admin page placed? I'm about to build this right now.
@webgarb That is for adding to specific pages, I need something for adding JS to the whole front-end at once, like how SafeCSS does for CSS.
