Another one of those I-wish-I-had-blogged-about-this moments: I wanted to bulk-edit some pages in my Dutch Hardwood Wiki and I knew I had previously done some scripting using a FUSE filesystem for MediaWiki. However, I didn't remember the name of the filesystem I had used before. Searching for "mediawiki fuse" didn't help in any way.

I wanted to convert an Flash Video (flv) file from YouTube to MP3. The first tip I found essentially streamed the original file into a different file:

I have been wanting to protect a certain page on my Dutch 15Monkeys wiki for weeks. I could install the ReCaptcha extension already (the best Captcha there is), but it's just that one page that's being spammed. So far, I've been unsuccessful in regaining my Sysop right for that wiki. I need these rights if I'm going to protect these pages.

Wiebe uses his author Atom feed to generate a list of his blog posts here on his own website. WordPress feeds only display the latest 10 entries. He has written 16 so far. What he needs is a feed with all his entries.

Wiebe reminded me by mail to send him a Windows executable. I use Gmail. Gmail doesn't allow me to send archives containing .exe files. Something to do with viruses on Windows. Wiebe doesn't use Windows. He uses Wine. I just want to send the damn executable.

I really, really liked the new style of administration panel that was introduced in WordPress 2.5. In all the time since I've upgraded (and increasingly with every update), I've started to like it more and more. I hadn't thought it possible but everything just felt at exactly the right place, while before 2.5, the whole always felt like it had been thrown together by a blind child. Had I written it myself, it would have at least felt as being thrown together by an adult (chimpanzee).

Sometimes you want specific hardware to get a specific device name in /dev. For example, I want my backup hard disk to have the same device name. I can't automate anything if sometimes the device is sdc and other times it's sdd.
