    1. Converting CSV to XML

      Posted on

      There’s a bit a functionality on one of the projects that I’m working on where I need to do a lookup. The data I’ve been given is in an Excel spreadsheet – which I needed to convert to XML (as ultimately the data will be stored in a CMS that handles XML better). I’ve done a lot of projects where I need to convert XML to Excel (via CSV), but not many where I need…

    2. Sneaky Skype installing Firefox Extension

      Posted on

      We’ve got an old laptop that we keep under the coffee table, so that we can quickly check IMDb or Wikipedia for mid-conversations things (very geeky I know!) Since Katelyn arrived, we’ve been using it for web-cam too. Yesterday we were having a few problems with voice chat on MSN, so we installed Skype on the laptop. A couple of clicks later, Skype was installed, all was good. Then about 5 mins later I notice…

    3. New Richard Westbrook Site

      Posted on

      Bodenko and Crush Design have just launch the new website for, Porsche Supercup champion, Richard Westbrook. We built the site with WordPress (2.5) to take advantage of it’s blogging framework and also to be totally buzzword-compliant! It’s not often that we get to mention the sites that we’ve built – usually due to the non-disclosure when doing B2B projects.

    4. Posting source code on WordPress.com

      Posted on

      I feel like a complete n00b … I’ve only just found out how to mark-up source-code snippets on WordPress.com It’s in their FAQs: How do I post source code? Essentially you use the short-code: [sourcecode language='css']...[/sourcecode] Here’s an example: // A "Hello World!" program in C# class Hello { static void Main() { System.Console.WriteLine("Hello World!"); } } I knew about WP.org plugins that did this, but I’ve been scratching my head on how do this…

    5. Upgrade WordPress Shell Script

      Posted on

      Now that I’ve found my new best friend (the sourcecode short-code), I want to put it to good use now. Here’s a quick Unix shell script that I use to upgrade my WordPress installations: #!/bin/sh # WordPress Update Script # Written by: Lee Kelleher # Released: 2008-04-23 # Email: lee # at # vertino # dot # net # Released under GPL echo "Downloading current version of WordPress..." wget http://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz echo "Uncompressing WordPress archive..." tar…

    6. “Powered by Category Cloud”

      Posted on

      I’ve just installed Operator – a Firefox extension that highlights microformatted data on web pages. So far I haven’t noticed any performance issues, and it’s been playing nicely with all my other Firefox extensions. As a web developer, Operator makes me want to add more semantic mark-up to my websites, (which I already try to do). This extension will make it easier for testing purposes. I decided to read more about the extension on the…

    7. Disabling Possibly Related Links on WordPress.com

      Posted on

      When WordPress.com introduced Snap Preview on our blogs (or is that their blogs?) at the end of 2006, I wasn’t impressed – it felt intrusive – like a JavaScript pop-up for Web 2.0! (Just given a different name). So I disabled it straight-away. A few days ago, the WP.com team introduced a new feature “Possibly Related Posts“. At first I thought this was a great idea for finding similar content – but then I realised…
