Day: January 11, 2008


{moszoomimglink:44. house}Well, it was about time. After two years in the pretty house in Westwood Highlands, the fog and the obsessive-compulsive neighbor have finally done me in and I am moving again. This time I am going to be a denizen of an area that I've always loved but never actually lived in: SoMa. 

For those of you who don't know, SoMa is South of Market, a formerly industrial and now very lofty and trendy area of San Francisco. It's close to everything, including coffee shops and the gym, which alone covers 90% of my time outside the house. 

Write locally, deploy globally (or: synchronizing Joomla sites)

Once in a while, I am somewhere where even my Verizon USB dongle can't help me get connected: in n airplane, in a remote location, in a nuclear bunker… In those cases, I would love to be able to work on my site, but how do I do that?

Enters Blogg-X, a nifty little Java app that allows you to edit content locally, and then synchronize it globally to a Joomla site. It even allows you to synchronize to multiple sites (or at least it allows you to write for multiple sites). See: that's what open source is all about! Problem solved!
