First thing is to get a simple webserver up and running. We must host the website and the data feed at the same address for security reasons (although ...

Feedburner and Apache Redirects

David Glassborow – Looking at the load this blog is causing, virtually all of it's requests are for the syndication feeds so I decided to off-load the network bandwidth to Feed Burner ( recently acquired by Google). Feedburner basically checks your site every 30 minutes (you can also manually request an update) and ...

Comments on my Weblog, Firebug

David Glassborow – I’ve been having a lot of problems with comments on this blog taking forever to post, being silently rejected, etc. After lots of messing around, I found it to be a combination of a) A theme that doesn’t handle problems with comments being locked and b) the built in anti spam protection ...

Useful Delphi Code

David Glassborow – Just realised I haven't written a blog post for 2.5 months, and I've just got back from a lunchtime surfing session, so I'm not really in the mood for real work. I thought I'd post some of my basic Delphi library code I use time and again in the hope it is of some use to other Delphi developers. Do ...

ATOM / RSS and Comments

David Glassborow – After all the effort of changing Weblogs, I’ve realised that Typo ‘out of the box’ does not support comments added to its syndication streams. I’ve hacked around in the code and managed to get something working. Rails XML helpers make this stuff pretty easy. Weirdly there ...
