A message from the admin: Chip moved to WP 2.6.
If anything appears broken, leave a comment 😉
Finally, fixed the Terong Related Links plugin, which hasn’t been working for the past months since I upgraded to WP 2.5. I found this fix here and simply replaced the PHP code as described. After activating the plugin, open a blog post and you should see a Related Links in the right-hand sidebar below Related.
I’m trying out a new plugin called XML Sitemap Generator for WordPress.
Schaulager is currently showing work by Andrea Zittel and Monika Sosnowska. If you get a chance to go, you should.
I particularly enjoyed Zittel’s design and architecture-related work.
And Sosnowska’s Corridor is great.
Malawi blogger Victor Kaonga writes about the long queue at the Road Traffic office:
I waited in a similar queue in Blantyre during my visit last year.
Cy has uploaded a video discussing the benefits of mobile technology for farmers in Malawi:
I like seeing other people’s workplaces…
Martin told me that he will be moving into a new workspace very soon, but before he moves out he’ll organize an exhibition. I forget the exact date but this should be some time in early September. And Martin says he’s planning to take part in this year’s Portes Ouvertes on 18th and 19th October.

You recently registered to get fring, but sadly your phone was not supported
Well , good news, the wait is over, and weÃ‚’re delighted to now invite you to join the fring community!
Caution: short techie bit coming up…
Until now, phones running on Java ME software (for example lots of cool Nokia & Sony EricssonÃ‚’s) have not been able to be part of fring because the technology of these devices is very different from the others in the fring family. One of the main differences is that they handle voice calling in a very specific way that makes it difficult for fring voice to be included.
…end of Techie bit!
So, in response to literally thousands of potential Java ME fringsters wanting to become part of our growing global community, weÃ‚’ve created a special version just for you called minifring, enabling you to connect with other fringsters and all of your online communities from your mobile for free and enjoy the benefits of being part of fring.
With minifring you can now use some of the most popular bits of fring to keep in touch with all of your other fring, Skype, GoogleTalk, MSN, AIM, Yahoo, ICQ, and Twitter, buddies, for free while youÃ‚’re on the go. You can enjoy the same rich IM-style chat, and real-time presence as other fringsters, so youÃ‚’ll know at a glance whoÃ‚’s available, whoÃ‚’s in a call, and whoÃ‚’s already chatting. YouÃ‚’ll see all of your online buddies and phone address book contacts in one convenient searchable list. And youÃ‚’ll be able to send music, picture, video and other digital files easily and quickly from your mobile without the cost or hassle of MMS, Bluetooth, cables or infrared.
Best of all, youÃ‚’ll be able to experience for yourself what fringing freedom is all about!
Just as with fring, you can connect over any mobile internet connection – 3G, WiFi, Edge, GPRS (and soon WIMAX) And it doesnÃ‚’t matter which mobile network operator youÃ‚’re a member of – all you need is a data subscription, and weÃ‚’ll give you fring.
And if you get a phone in the future which supports fringÃ‚’s voice calling, you can seamlessly transfer and enjoy the full fring experience without any hassle.
To join up, simply visit www.fring.com, click the Download button and follow the step-by-step instructions and youÃ‚’ll be a fringster before you know it!
We look forward to welcoming you to the family.
The fring team.
Sounds interesting. And it’s good timing. Cos a lot of people are now talking about mobile apps.
hmm… I can’t find my Sony Ericsson W810i in the list.

This t-shirt text puzzled me this morning…
I figured it out after a while but at first I kept associating ZIM with Zimbabwe.
I’ve uploaded two batches of snapshots to my Flickr stream. I’m a snapshotter at heart and I’m not spending much time correcting or editing my work (yet).
Unhindered by talent or technical skills, I hope I can at least convey the fun I’m having. I particularly enjoyed Saturday’s photo tour with Diveangel.
BTW, there’s a Basel Flickr meetup planned for 27th July 2008.
Recommended read (via White African):
AFRICANS buy 36 billion bottles of Coke a year. Because the price is set so low—around 20-30 American cents, less than the price of the average newspaper—and because sales are so minutely analysed by Coca-Cola, the Coke bottle may be one of the continent’s best trackers of stability and prosperity.
The article is right about the distribution network. Coca-Cola is available in every remote village.

Not very detailed though. The south is less hilly than the north. Ok.

To remove a tag and file:
cvs tag -d "tagname" filename
cvs remove -f filename
cvs commit -m "message" filename
To tag an entire folder:
cvs tag -F "tagname" foldername
I started using command line cvs more frequently. These are reminders for myself. In addition to the cvs help.
