Moved Jessie to Typo

We spent a while this weekend moving Jessie’s blog from dasBlog to Typo on Textdrive. This gets the last thing off the server in our pantry (formerly the server in the bathroom). She’s still messing with the tweaking the theme but it’s looking pretty good.

For those interested in redirecting using the Typo redirects table should check out this diff to make sure the redirects are working correctly. I went a little further and added a default page rather than the standard “Page not found” text. Here’s what I added to Jessie’s redirect controller.

from = params[:from].join(“/”) if params[:from].kind_of?(Array)
r = Redirect.find_by_from_path(from)
r = Redirect.find_by_from_path(“*”) if !r

And then I added one of her standard pages for the * (default) redirect.

Programming with Boo

I’ve spent a few nights playing with a new (to me) programming language, Boo. It really feels like the best of C#, Ruby, and Python. If you are interested in writing for the CLI or you are generally interested in programming languages, check out the features page to check out some of the reasons why I’ve been impressed.

If you are interested in trying it out, be sure and grab the new version of SharpDevelop. It’s got built-in support for Boo projects (including Windows Forms editing).
