Microformats and WordPress

Saturday, March 18th, 2006

Every few months I stumble onto something I consider “cool” or “interesting” that I want to try out here on Usually the expirement ends with me making modifications to my WP template or upgrading it. Today the culprit was microformats thanks to a post by Don Marti on the subject.

After reading up on microformats, I’ve added hcard to my blog. I dabbled with hcal and hreview a bit, but I don’t have any events or reviews worth posting at the moment.

Anyways, that experiment lead me to the structured blogging plugin for wordpress, which now shows me that wordpress is at 2.0.2 (I’m running 1.5.x at the moment). So now I’m reading about WP 2.0.x and trying to decide if theres anything in there that I want.

Wine – Weekend Update

Saturday, March 18th, 2006

Apparently my issues with Snoodoku (4852) under Wine are related to my X and video card configuration, and not a wine issue. (see bug As result my bug report was closed.

Additionally others have reported success with Lemonade Stand, so that might be a configuration issue as well. I’ll be testing with more debug options and a newer version of wine this week.

On another note, I updated my wine install to 0.9.10 on Friday and began retesting my bug reports under the new version. Meetro (4848) is still broken, as is SlingPlayer (bug 4871).

I haven’t been able to retest the yahoo games under it yet. I’ll probably take the weekend off and start again Monday.
