On Oktober, the 25th, in what will be known to future generations as a historical move, Wiebe changed the A record of www.aihato.nl to point to the new production site running at Ytec. The new site, a collaboration by Ytec and me, based on WordPress, has been in development since May. At least, that's when I started taking notes. There had been some discussion, wire-framing and design done before that time.

Because I used it successfully before, I decided to use scrAPI to scrape the entries from the old Aihato guestbook. After preprocessing the HTML a bit, I finally got beyond an endless debugging sessions (which cumulated in me discovering a whole collection of nested <html> tags, which forbad any type of sensible parsing of the page).

I just need to add a quick summary of what postgres back-end tool our Ruby on Rails application uses, and how we've configured it, because it's quite confusing...

When I was studying Spanish last year, I had to choose a flashcard program to memorize new words. At the time, I couldn't find any on-line program that just did the job and did it well. In a comment on my blog post from last year, however, I was pointed by Jeff to his amazing FlashcardDB.

Thursday evening: so, I had written myself a nice little script using Aaron Patterson's WWW::Mechanize and why's Hpricot to extract some data from a popular web-based airport directory.
