Version 0.2 of the blogger plugin for wordpress 3.x has a small little bug in it that produces the following error:
Something went wrong. If the problem persists, send this info to support:
HTTP/1.0 403 Invalid AuthSub token.
I’ve been banging my head against the wall trying to figure out what’s wrong with their code and I think I’ve found a fix (atleast until version 0.3 of the plugin comes out at which time this fix will not apply anymore…..hopefully).
The problem is with the regex code in the auth() function of the blogger-importer.php plugin. So edit this file and make the following changes:
1) Line 99:
2) Line 108:
Hopefully this will help you get going…..

If you’ve ever come across the email gateways of most social sites, you know that — in order to protect you and your account — they produce some very forgettable email addresses.

Well here is a easy way to use Google mail’s filter function to create easy to remember gmail addresses that would inturn forward your precious postings to the appropriate social site.
Now any picture attachment sent to firstname.lastname@example.org will automagically get rerouted to your flickr publishing Email. You can do this for all your services and that way standardize/centralize your publishing Email addresses.

One of the things I don’t really like about OSX Leopard is the fact that everytime you take a screen shot of a window (Command-Shift-4 followed by Spacebar), it put’s a — for us bloggers — not so good looking shadow around the capture. Well not anymore, use the following command to disable the effect:
Okay a little while back I wrote a piece about setting up custom DNS names on easyDNS.com and getting the plumbing to work with blogger. Well, there is some excellent news. You see, Mark Jeftovic (Pres. and CEO of easyDNS) contacted me today to let me know about modifications they have made to their DNS parking servers. These changes make it super easy to setup a blogger custom DNS name with them. No need for Mommy and Daddy….just use easyDNS :-)
Here are the updated details:

So I finally broke down and registered nerdlogger.com with easydns.com. I’ve used their service for my own ayromlou.ca canadian domain, so I figured, why not. Under ayromlou.ca I was doing all kinds of redirects to get www.ayromlou.ca to point to nerdlogger.blogspot.com (which is the standard addressing scheme for blogs on blogger). Now, here is how I got my custom domain name (nerdlogger.com) to work:
This is my first post using a new Browser named Flock. Flock is a OSX native browser based on firefox code, but with lots of neat ideas integrated inside. One thing I really like is the blogging feature right in the browser, Browse, Find, Highlight, Blog…..It’s real easy. Try it for yourself http://www.flock.com
