Mass upload to WordPress

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

I often make photo entries on my other non-technical blog, and it is such a pain having to upload photo after photo in two sizes. Yesterday I discovered the Upload Unzipper which implements uploads of zip-files which are then unpacked on the server and treated as individual uploads. Fantastic time saver.

Comment spam

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

I just went through the comment moderation queue on this blog, and there were four (4) valid comments out of 385 comments. Spam is such a pain that I can’t even imagine how it would be without comment moderation activated.

Vodafone Wi-Fi Hotspots

Thursday, November 1st, 2007

I have the dubious pleasure of using a Vodafone Wi-Fi hots at the Jolly Hotel at Cagliari. It must be the lousiest hotspot I have ever used.

I am consistently thrown off every few minutes and association attempts fail three times out of four. It makes it bloody hard to do something with the time you have actually bought.

Using that hotspot to get a message through to Telecom Italia Mobile is just about hell. Their site is so lousy and inaccessible it should be a crime.
