Back from SIGGRAPH, minor blog structure change

August 24th, 2007 by Jeff | 1 Core Dump

Sorry again for the silence, everyone. The past several weeks have been rather hectic. Obviously, I’m back from SIGGRAPH, which was earlier this month. The con report on the GPF site is forthcoming; the slideshow is finished, but there’s no link to it from anywhere yet (until this one). Then as soon as I got back, my wife had to first fly to Portland, OR, for a week, then this week she’s in Seattle, WA. Three week-long business trips back-to-back, and whoever isn’t criss-crossing the country is busy watching the little guy. It’s a wonder I’ve had time to do anything except breathe.

Anyway, the second purpose of this quickie post is to let everyone know I’ve made a minor structural change to the blog. I’ve changed the permalink structure from the WordPress default which uses parameters on the query string (http://www.jeffdarlington.com/?p=4) to something hopefully a bit more user-friendly that combines the date and the page “slug” (http://www.jeffdarlington.com/2005/02/17/i-hate-blogs/). I’ve implemented a series of complex Apache mod_rewrite rules that should allow old permalinks to work transparently, not only from the old WordPress query style but also from the old Movable Type links of yore. If anyone encounters a broken link or a link that points to the wrong page, please let me know so I can adjust the rules. Obviously, it would be best if you could update any links you have to this site to the new URLs, but I’ll try to be as accommodating as possible.

I have more interesting things to post, so I’ll hopefully have those up soon.
