BLOGGING & TECHNOLOGY: Uploading large files

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

Just a note because I’m sure I’ll need this information long after I’ve forgotten how to do it.

When uploading a large file, i.e., media, and WordPress uploads gives a 2M limit, upload directly via Lunar’s cPanel into wp-content/uploads/2009/12 (or whatever year and month)

To upload it into a post, upload via the URL with the

I’m duplicating this post from Spinning because I’ll likely need it here more often than there with audio, video, flash, etc. files.

(Am doing this via MarsEdit so I’m not sure how the post will come out as far as the reference.)

Another push in the direction of hypertext for me; another reason to popularize it for the common reader and make it more accessible and interesting via story and genre base. It needn’t be taken away from academics and techno geeks, but rather added to encompass this much larger starving audience of readers.

In building a new main pc, including a new widescreen monitor, I’m finding that the hardware can possibly influence the software, particularly Storyspace.

In looking at Paths in widescreen, wider and larger than the laptop allowed, I see that it is possible to rearrange things to follow a horizontal pattern rather than a vertical one.  Now this is in part determined by the hierarchy, but too, by the level at which the text boxes are arranged and linked in Map View, or setting it up in Chart View. 

The colors of Storyspace also look a bit different on the new screen.  Grey is taupe and the colored titles are more intense.  Okay, so maybe that means that I’ve got to adjust the graphic options on the monitor.

The best thing?  I don’t have to travel so far down the hall in the dark at 3:00 a.m. when an idea hits.

TECHNOLOGY: What kind of programmer are you?

Friday, June 8th, 2007

…or rather, would I be? 

Your programmer personality type is:


You’re a Doer.
You are very quick at getting tasks done. You believe the outcome is the most important part of a task and the faster you can reach that outcome the better. After all, time is money.

You like coding at a High level.
The world is made up of objects and components, you should create your programs in the same way.

You work best in a Solo situation.
The best way to program is by yourself. There’s no communication problems, you know every part of the code allowing you to write the best programs possible.

You are a Conservative programmer.
The less code you write, the less chance there is of it containing a bug. You write short and to the point code that gets the job done efficiently.

Take the quick quiz here. (Thanks to J-Walk for the link)

I may still be too old to want to be a mom, but this might make a good grandchild.

I wonder if it’ll like gardening and framing and washing dishes and making dinner and vacuuming while I play on the computer.
