pealing.com is now using SSL - just like your internet banking does.
This means that your information can't be sniffed between the server and your computer.
This is recommended in modern times for all websites, but as we all have passwords we enter for pealing.com, then quite important.
I enabled a new way of including media files (images, video, sound) and other files (pdf's etc) into your blog posts.
It's called "Scald" - don't ask me why; the bloke who wrote it is French so perhaps it's a French anacronym.
Now, whenever you're on a page you can edit (or even comment on) you will see a bar at the right of your browser that looks like:
I don't know how many of you use the feature that allows you to log in with your google account details - I do, and I think Doug uses his Yahoo account. As of 30 Jan, logging in with google will stop working - unless I do something about it, as google are changing their authentication method (to a more secure method actually). This change won't (immediately) affect other ways of logging in (such as Yahoo) Please take the time to vote on the poll (to your right on a full size screen, or below this posting on a small screen).
Some of us (me included) use RSS to keep up with pealing.com (and possibly other sites).
I have been using RSS readers on my phone, my tablet and my computer. This can be a little irritating when you swap device, articles I've read appear unread on the new device.
I've solved this by using "Tiny Tiny RSS" (TT-RSS) aggregator as a RSS Feed Syncroniser.
I've installed TT-RSS on my webserver, and created myself a normal user. Next I connected to TT-RSS from the client on my phone/tablet/computer. From there, I subscribed to the RSS feeds I'm interested in.
As I've turned email notifications off (you no longer get an email when some one posts something new on pealing.com), the best way to keep up with new postings is to use RSS.
Any one use RSS?
I do, and I think Robert does.
This provides and alternative way of getting a notification when something new is posted on the website, rather than the email that gets sent out when someone posts something new.
(BTW, if you want to be excluded from the email notifications, let me know)
