New Hebrew Dates (2.0) released!

‍‍י״ב תמוז תש״ע - Thursday, June 24th, 2010

When it rains, it pours...

I just rewrote most of HebrewDates. The new version is 2.0.0, and is available at the Hebrew Dates release page.

There's basically no reason to use yesterday's 1.0.4 release.

New features:

  • Complete rewrite of the date identification; much more reliable
  • Code actually looks slightly sane now. I'm no longer embarrassed for someone to look at it (although it's not great...)
  • New get_the_hebrew_date() and the_hebrew_date() APIs, which can be used in any theme. The interception of the other calls, while much more robust now, still is not the ideal

Please let me know if there are any bugs. Archives should work, and some weird date formats should also be better (I no longer rely on PHP's strtotime, but have my own parsing logic).

HebrewDates fix for WordPress 3.0 (2010 theme)

‍‍י״א תמוז תש״ע - Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

There's a fix out for Hebrew Dates, which correctly supports the 2010 theme used by default in WordPress 3.0. Now dates generated by either the_date() or get_the_date() are supported.

The new version is 1.0.4, and is available at the Hebrew Dates release page.

SerCat released

‍‍כ״ח ניסן תשס״ט - Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

I've released a replacement for both LogSer and ToSer called SerCat. It supports both stdin and stdout, and provides very basic terminal emulation (no arrow keys or functions keys yet).

Send Data to the Serial Port

‍‍ט״ו תמוז תשס״ז - Sunday, July 1st, 2007

As a counterpart to the LogSer program, I'm releasing code that allows dumping data from stdin to an arbitrary serial port.

The code can be downloaded as either source code or a compiled EXE from the ToSer release page under the Software section. To compile the source for yourself, simply run cl ToSer.cpp to compile with MS's Visual Studio command line compilers.

See Spam plugin for WordPress released

‍‍ל׳ שבט תשס״ז - Saturday, February 17th, 2007

I've recently been under attack by a lot of spammers, and have been a little worried that my spam filters may have been a little overzealous in blocking comments and trackbacks. I've been looking at Akismet's page of caught spam to make sure nothing got through.

However, finding that one comment that got lost has proven difficult among the mess of hundreds of trackback spam has proven tricky. Thus, I wrote a plugin, called "See Spam," based on Akismet and Spam Nuker that provides separate views for All Spam, Comment Spam, Trackback Spam, and Pingback Spam. Each view provides the ability to batch delete all comments or unspam individual comments.

You can download See Spam from the See Spam plugin section of the Software section.
