I’ve spent some time working on this, today, some of which means that future upgrades of the two plugins involved will be a little harder (I had to go in and manually change the code in order to get dates to display correctly) but the result is that now comments from both Twitter and FriendFeed are added to the comments on my blog posts. So, if you link to the blog post on Twitter or comment on the blog when it gets posted to friendfeed (or if you want your comment to go to friendfeed from the blog), it all shows up nicely in the comments area of the post.
You know, so that that conversation no one is having about my blog posts all gets combined and returned to the blog post it’s about. Well, except for livejournal comments. I cross-post most of my stuff to LJ, and sometimes people comment there, but as far as I know there’s no way to get those comments to come over here, too. I’ll look into it. But except for that, now conversations on this blog, on Twitter, and on friendfeed related to my posts are all integrated here. You can see what it might, theoretically look like, where I was testing it and getting it set up, on my last post.
I seem to have stayed up all night tonight. Bought a new video game (used at Zia for $22, vs. the original retail price of $60 = win), Civilization:Revolution for my PS3, and played it for 5+hrs, not finishing up until 4AM. Would have played a little longer, but this version of Civ doesn’t allow for the “..just one more turn” option after you win; you just have to stop playing when you win.
Blinked a couple of times, looked around, thought about heading to bed. Really, tried to decide between trying to stay up (ie: all day) and going to bed (and then trying to get up at a reasonable hour). Part of this is related to not getting out of bed until Noon on Monday. Now it’s after 5AM on Tuesday, and my typing is bad enough that … probably I oughtn’t to try to stay awake if my intention is to accomplish anything worthwhile. But I paused at a computer for a moment, and couldn’t help but do a little of this, a little of that.
So, I updated the “via Podcast” page for Lost and Not Found, added a via Podcast page for Forget What You Can’t Remember, and added an “eBook edition” page for FWYCR explaining that the eBook should be available in February (& I wouldn’t mind help getting it ready by then).
Then I came over here, to lessthanthis.com, and poked around a bit at the new Tweetbacks plugin I’ve got installed. It’s still not got the dates right, but at least that’s not my fault. It is separating everything out and labeling and displaying things appropriately, for now. Didn’t realize the version I was using wasn’t the original, or that since I dropped it in here half-working the first guy had gone ahead and written an entire TweetSuite – I’ll have to think about putting that in, too. I’m pretty happy with what it’s doing right now, though, so … until I feel like tinkering again…
