    my lifestream

    Posted on by

    The old concept of getting your brain subscribed to has a reincarnation into the lifestream idea : add a page to your blog listing all your timed actions on the web. I stumbled upon it via the Lifestream – ala wordpress post containing a link to the original Streaming my life away article by Jeremy… Read more »

    FoaF

    Posted on by

    Speaking about work done behind the curtains, here another tiny addition to this site. If you ever looked at the source of this page, you will notice that as of today there is one line added near the end of the _head_-tag < link rel=”meta” href=”http://www.neverendingbooks.org/lieven.rdf” type=”application/rdf+xml” title=”FOAF” / > which will point spiders and… Read more »

    upgrade to wp 2.0

    Posted on by

    All activity on this site this week (apart from changing the theme) was done behind the scenes. Finally, _neverendingbooks_ is upgraded to WordPress 2.0. It is a straightforward well-explained procedure but somehow I decided to try this out in between a WorkShop and a Ph.D. defense. As a consequence I had to reclone twice… Some… Read more »

    latexrender plugin for wordpress under tiger

    Posted on by

    Promises and pie-crusts are made to be broken, a wiser man once said. Still, promises have a much longer life-span and sometimes their real content becomes redundant over time. A year ago, I promised to document how I got the LaTeXRender Plugin for WordPress working under OS X. The procedure consisted of some trial-and-error operations,… Read more »

    markLaTeXdown

    Posted on by

    Clearly, an extended version of Markdown including LaTeX-commands would be useful for mathematicians and surely I’m not the first to think about this. In fact, I found a somewhat pompous text New adventures if hifi text by someone claiming to have done precisely that (though he doesn’t give much details nor post a version of… Read more »

    tiger days 1

    Posted on by

    It should be really day 2 but yesterday evening I was a bit overoptimistic and tried to get MySQL, Ruby, Rails & Tracks installed and in the process totally wrecked my Ruby-system (and probably a few things more). Besides, I found out that the _Carbon Copy Cloner_ work-around doesn\’t really work (that is, one canNOT… Read more »

    markdown

    Posted on by

    The nerd implimentation of GTD is based on plain text-files, or more precisely – all lists in text files, kept in directory “~/Documents/txt” – all documents maintained in Markdown for easy HTML conversion I’ve been writing HTML-code since the times that the best browser around was something called NCSA Mosaic so I’ve never paid too… Read more »

    padlock returns

    Posted on by

    A couple of months ago I spend some time modifying the WordPress ViewLevel plugin slightly to include in this blog. At the time, the idea was to restrict the readership of certain posts (such as info meant for master-class students etc.). In the sidebar these posts are prepended by a padlock sign (together with the… Read more »

    some smaller steps

    Posted on by

    It always amazes me how much time I have to waste in trying to get tech-stuff (such as this weblog) working the way I want. You will barely notice it but again I spend too much time delving in PHP-scripts, sometimes with minor success, most of the time almost wrecking this weblog… An example :… Read more »

    quiver pictures in wordpress

    Posted on by

    Having latexrender available, one can edit the _class.latexrender.php_ file to include additional LaTeX-packages. For example adding the lines string .= ‘\usepackage{xy}\n’; string .= ‘\xyoption{all}\n’; string .= ‘\newcommand{\vtx}[1]{*+[o][F-]{\scriptscriptstyle #1}}\n’; makes it possible to include quiver-pictures in this weblog. Observe the double blackslash before newcommand, a single backslash would produce a new-line and fail to define something.

    LatexRender plugin for wordpress under Panther

    Posted on by

    After three days of desperate trial-and-error I seem to have managed to get latexrender working for wordpress under Mac OS X. First things first : if you only want to include some symbols in your blog-posts the easiest way to do so is to use mimetex and the corresponding wordpress-plugin written by Steve Mayer.
