@jitsnz Any ideas on how to handle emails? New server isn't going to handle them for you.
@jitsnz Dunedin website works in Norway, but not Dunedin, doh!
@jitsnz Hmmm. I checked again. Working just fine for me.
@jitsnz Reason it hasn't been moved is because I'm having trouble working out a good way to handle the emails.
@jitsnz Seems to be fine now. It hasn't been moved yet. Test version of it is running well though.
@andrea_r Stupid statistics plugins! Keep bogging the darn server down.
@andrea_r Yeah, am using that. But need to know if it's in the sidebar or not.
@andrea_r I need to justify removing a plugin which hammers the DB. Proving that (almost) no one is using it would help my argument.
@andrea_r I was hoping there would be a nice easy to use plugin. I have one of those for telling if plugins are activated or not.
Question: How would you work out how many sites have a particular widget in their sidebar on WordPress multisite install?
Hmmm, free top level domain registrar http://dot.tk/. Not so good when the domain is redirected to malware as happened to @th3j35t3r.
@th3j35t3r That's better 😀
@th3j35t3r Try to fix the subdomain by going to https://th3j35t3r.wordpress.com/wp-admin/paid-upgrades.php?page=domains and selecting the sub-domain.
@th3j35t3r The old sub-domain is still indexed and you should be able to use that instead until the redirect is fixed.
@th3j35t3r I pinged http://WordPress.com on IRC to get them to block the redirect from the old sub-domain.
@leewillis77 That was what I was thinking of doing, but @plainsupper pointed out get_post_type() instead.
@plainsupper Thanks 😀 I knew there had to be a function for that somewhere!
Dumb question for the day: If I have an ID, how to know if it's a post or page in WordPress? This seemed simple until I went to do it.
It seems that generating giant PDFs on the fly is kinda tricky. Ended up making 100 small PDFs and joining them together.
@zedejose @Rarst Turns out that most of the 14 MB was from fonts provided along with the PDF library I'm using.
@zedejose Just PHP 😀
Holy cripes. The WordPress to PDF plugin I'm working on is already over 14 MB in size!
@JJJ It's also still the standard "Zend" way of doing things 🙁
@seonking Now it works 😀 Everything worked apart from .zip files.
@seonking actually, maybe not sorry …
@seonking It's fixed now 😀 Thanks for letting me know about it.
@seonking I'll fix that for you in an hours time. It seems all my old zip files are broken right now.
Someone is busy adding stuff to the featured images in WordPress trunk. Every day it looks a little different from the last.
@Jghazally It makes the terminal seem like a happier place. It's even better at 24px and bright orange 😀
@film_girl I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder 😉
@film_girl To me, the Nokia brick is more iconic.The design is still used today and for good reason.
@ipstenu @pippinsplugins Considering the amount of malfunctioning crapware I've got past you, the rejects must be truly horrendously bad!
@ipstenu Did they provide a video tutorial inside the zip perhaps?
@NinjaLikesCheez @ronindotca I should also be more careful with Swype to avoid typos 😉
@NinjaLikesCheez @ronindotca I should start of Twitter more often! Problems must fix themselves 😀
Apologies to anyone who noticed the PixoPoint RSS feed exploded today. Something went wrong during the changeover to a new domain.

@XanaduHowTo I miss ginger beer. It doesn't seem to be very popular here in Norway.
@XanaduHowTo How much?
@wptavern @jjj I mentioned you both in a blog post… http://wprealm.com/blog/talkpress-is-back/
RT @DeFries: TalkPress: Is bbPress finally coming to http://WordPress.com? http://wprealm.com/blog/talkpress-is-back/

@TCBarrett I don't entirely understand what you just said sorry. Increase file size of what?
@Krogsgard @williamsba @scottbasgaard Pffft, we upgraded from goats! We now have stream trains 😀
@TCBarrett Random aside: This is a multisite currently powering three sites. More sites to be added later.
@TCBarrett Isn't it supposed to be a clean looking pie graph with no fragmentation in it?
@TCBarrett I cranked my APC memory up to 256 MB, but that didn't help at all.
@TCBarrett This is apparently a problem … https://ryan.hellyer.kiwi/_apc.php. Any ideas if upgrading to latest APC would help that?
@TCBarrett I never thought I'd learn how to do it myself, but I ended up sharing an office with @konstruktors who is a guru with this stuff.
@Krogsgard I use SVN, so just switched back. I slightly cringed before hitting the enter key.
@TCBarrett My bottleneck appears to be a 100 Mbps bandwidth cap as far as regular page views go.
@TCBarrett Apparently I should be using PHP-FPM instead of fastcgi, but it seems to be working just fine in it's current state.
@TCBarrett Vanilla installations. I'm too much of a n00b to risk doing too much fiddling.
@Krogsgard Did you experience any problems in doing that?
@TCBarrett It's very satisfying knowing that I can handle reasonable traffic spikes without breaking the bank.
@TCBarrett I was scared of the command line. I'd never go back though. cPanel has it's purpose but I no longer have a use for it.
@TCBarrett As nice as that would be, I suspect I will never max out my current box.
@TCBarrett In case you haven't seen it, here's a blog post outlining the jump … https://geek.hellyer.kiwi/2012/09/01/blitz-lo/
@TCBarrett I upgraded to Linode, NGINX, PHP-fastCGI, APC, Batcache and Cloudfront all in one hit 😀 Performance jump was, er, noticeable 😀
@TCBarrett I've been running on trunk for a long time, but this is the only time I've needed to revert to fix something.
@TCBarrett I had to downgrade due to the featured image uploader breaking.
@TCBarrett Yeah. I'm hoping there hasn't been, but hard to know without following Trac closely.
@TCBarrett I switched to a VPS a few year agos too. My new box is less powerful but serves pages around 100x faster.
@nakrissimo I made do with a bowl of muesli instead.
@jordantcarter It's like Caturday, but for sitting … http://caturday.tumblr.com/
Sitting here loading my website, basking in the gloriousness of being able to load a page in less than a minute 😀
@karmatosed I will "fix" it eventually 😀
@Mamaduka Thanks 😀
@hanlasse Awesome shot! Nice use of Instagram (I usually hate those stupid filters).
Has anyone out there had issues with reverting from WP trunk to stable? I just did an SVN switch and it seems to be working fine so far.
Thanks to @karmatosed for recent design assistance 😀 https://geek.hellyer.kiwi/?p=2655 (I still haven't fixed the "green" issue though)
PixoPoint is no more … https://geek.hellyer.kiwi/?p=2655
@nakrissimo Yer making me hungry! mmm sushi 😀
So apparently running WordPress trunk is not always a good idea. I just lost the ability to add featured images. Damn!
http://PixoPoint.com is gone. Now replaced by http://geek.RyanHellyer.net 😀
@kimparsell Thanks 😀 It went down for ages last night due to DNS issues, but since then Pingdom has been reporting it down most of the time
Pingdom is giving me really weird reports. Is there anyone out there who CAN'T see my personal blog? https://ryan.hellyer.kiwi/
My experience of moving domains from @godaddy to @namecheap 🙁 https://random.hellyer.kiwi/files/2012/09/ryan.hellyer.kiwi-uptime.png
@DeFries OMG! How did I not know this already?
@AWDL2011 lolz. I don't feel very Norwegian.
@NinjaLikesCheez You don't need an expensive box, just a little lateral thinking 😉
@yoast That popcorn caricature makes me hungry! http://yoast.com/wordpress/video-seo/
Ohhh, @yoast is selling plugins now … http://yoast.com/wordpress/video-seo/
@NinjaLikesCheez Once you have the box up and running, lemme know. I own a site that will be somewhat more challenging for you to take on 😀
@daniel_immke It's not that bad. It's certainly expensive, but it's also a hell of a nice place to live, so it's worth it.
@daniel_immke Are you thinking of moving here?
@daniel_immke The place I'm sharing with @ronalfy costs ~US$2600 per month but we're in one of the most expensive parts of Oslo.
@daniel_immke Yes, you can get places for significantly cheaper than that in fact.
@daniel_immke LOL, not likely! Can you get anywhere that cheap in the USA? That's crazy cheap for six months rent.
@daniel_immke What currency and over what time frame?
@NinjaLikesCheez You failed last time 😉
Whew! I am now back online! https://ryan.hellyer.kiwi/
@zamoose @ryancduff @DeFries @indigonl I generally try to avoid scaring people with my face!
Thanks @ryancduff @DeFries @indigonl 😀 Why is my avatar so interesting?
By popular demand (well, @DeFries), I have changed my Twitter avatar to something more "Ryan'ish". Back to sorting my infernal domain …
@DeFries All in good time! But yeah, that will happen eventually.
@DeFries It's a bit like the chicken and the egg. If there was no chicken, how could there be an egg?
w00p w00p , I'll be back online soon :D… " This domain will be added to your account within several minutes."
Dangnabbit! Ma domain is down 🙁 Transfer from Godaddy -> Namecheap is not going well 🙁
