Firefox or Flock?

Finally flock as a new browser has been released for public. I tested this browser on my linux and windows. Hmm, looks like this browser has a taste like firefox 1.4.1.

Like they said on their sites:

Flock is completely independent from Mozilla. Some of us have been involved with Mozilla as staff, community volunteers, or have worked on Mozilla code in previous jobs. We plan to contribute to the success of the Mozilla platform and to contribute back to the community.

After tested this browser, I think Firefox still better for me :), My Firefox has a lot of extension and Flock still can’t import my extension right now.

Which one do you choose? Firefox or Flock?

Howto Setup Alphabetically Blogroll on WordPress MU

WordPress as an engine blog has a blogroll feature. You can find that feature on Links >> Link Categories >> Edit menus. On that menus we can setup blogroll as what you want. You still can find this feature on WordPress MU such as blogsome, blogthing or wordpress.com.

On wordpress.com you can setup alphabetically blogroll using menu as i mentioned above, unfortunately you can’t do that on blogsome. So, here below the steps to setup alphabetically blogroll on blogsome :

  • Login tho the blogsome dashboard and open Manage >> Files >> index.html.
  • Scroll down and find this code: {get_links category='-1' before='<li> after='</li>' between='' show_images='0' orderby='_updated' show_description='0' show_rating='0' limit='-1' show_updated='-1'}
  • Replace orderby='_updated' with orderby='name'
  • Push Update Template! buttons
  • Voila! 🙂
  • Dropline GNOME 2.12

    After several weeks waiting, finally dropline GNOME is out.

    Dropline GNOME is a version of the GNOME Desktop that has been tweaked for Slackware Linux systems. It is available in Slackware’s standard .tgz package format and requires Slackware 10.1 or higher.

    After Slackware discontinued Gnome Desktop on their distro, Dropline GNOME is an alternative choice if you want using GNOME on your slackbox.

    So, you should try slackware 10.2 and Dropline :p

    Howto Migrate comment from Blogsome to WordPress

    I’ve made an import rss comments for wordpress. This script is useful when you have a wordpress free hosting such as blogsome or blogthing and you want migrate all comments.

    Here below the steps to import all your posts and comments from blogsome to wordpress :

    Note:

    • This scripts is modified from import-rss.php
    • There’s no URI, IP, Email and User Agent commenter on rss comments, so you can’t import them to the new database.

    New Browser Flock!

    New browser is out. This browser is Flock. Welcome to the internet, flock :).

    Businessweek said like this about flock:

    Flock is also the latest and most ambitious example of a surprising renaissance in browser innovation. Less than a year after its first ready-for-prime-time release, the Mozilla Firefox browser — which Decrem and some of his engineers helped create and popularize before starting Flock last spring — has stolen nearly 10% of the market from leader Microsoft.

    After gmail, orkut, and wordpress using invitation and right now flock using invitation too. So, you can get flock only by invitation. And i don’t have an invitation. Does Anyone has and send me invitation please? 😀
