Redirect WordPress Posts from an Old Domain

Simple Code

Recently I had a prob­lem when I moved my blog from blog.fantikerz.com to fantikerz.com. I had far too many links on other sites that still looked like http://blog.fantikerz.com/?p=261, and wouldn’t redi­rect to the new blog’s loca­tion. I wouldn’t even know where to start if I had to change all of those.

Instead, I threw together a sim­ple redi­rec­tion script that I thought I’d just share in case any­one needed it. It’s noth­ing fancy at all, and stu­pid easy to set up. There are many ways of doing this, and in my opin­ion, this is the easiest.

Designing Cloudy

2009-06-16_0516I chal­lenged myself to design a basic site in an hour or less while tak­ing a screen­shot every 10 sec­onds. At what ended up being 1 hour and 9 min­utes, I missed my mark -  but only by a lit­tle bit. Over­all, the end result is decent, but noth­ing spec­tac­u­lar. Given more time I would have prob­a­bly refined the header sec­tion a bit more and spiced up the wel­come area. Keep­ing in mind the time con­straints, the sim­plic­ity and bar­ren­ness can be over looked, in my opin­ion. Look for the full size image after the jump.

Things that Irk Me

Sit­ting here wait­ing for my Steam items to down­load (Mir­rors Edge and Assassin’s Creed, thanks for ask­ing), I began to pon­der 2058346033_25e28400bbthe phrases, words, and actions that are my pet peeves. I now present them in a neat, alpha­bet­ized list that you may use as a ref­er­ence when com­mu­ni­cat­ing with me.*

Just know that there’s not any par­tic­u­lar rea­son for writ­ing this, and you shouldn’t take any­thing seri­ously — unless you’re Anthony or George. There might even be some things that you agree with, but don’t be sur­prised if there isn’t. In all seri­ous­ness, this post is really self-centered and is mostly a joke.

11 Catchy or Feel Good Songs

All this post is about, is feel good , and catchy, songs. As a music junkie, I come across them quite often, and I even have a playlist of them on my iPod that’s 150-ish songs deep.

What makes a song catchy? A nice beat, of course, with some­times clever lyrics. The same thing goes for the feel good songs, which will prob­a­bly have some more mean­ing­ful lyrics.

I fig­ured some of you might enjoy some songs on this Sat­ur­day morn­ing. Here are some of the bet­ter ones, after the break…
