Podcamp London was held on April 28, 2009.  It was a wonderful gathering of podcasting, tech and social media enthusiasts from throughout central Ontario.     Kudos go to Bill, Titus, Will and all the organizers of the event.

John Meadows of the On the Log podcast and I presented a session at Podcamp London entitled:  Free is Good about free and open source audio production and podcasting tools.  Here are the audio and the slides of that session.  (Click on the slide to advance)

I just downloaded the new beta3 release of Thingamablog 1.0.
It has a
bunch of new features including WYSIWYG blog entries and support for
importing rtf files. This is going to make my blogging experience even
easier. Woo Hoo.

Check out the official announcement.


Thingamablog v1.0b3 Released



Filed Under (general, software) by admin on September-2-2004

I updated my version of Thingamablog today to the brand new 1.0b2 release.
The more I use this program, the more I’m liking it. It has almost all the features of a server side blog program. Plus it is written in Java, so I can use it in Windows or Linux.

Today I fixed the ugly blue A’s which appeared after every date and added a calendar.
Here is the link to the new Thingamablog release.

Thingamablog v1.0b2 Released

   The second public beta of Thingamablog v1.0 has been released. This version includes several bug fixes and usability enhancements along with a couple new features such as a “Feed Reader” tab on the Options Dialog. Users now have the option to update the news feeds at a specified interval. In addition, feed items can now be formatted when they are posted to blog entries via a template.

   v1.0b2 also slightly improves on the performance of the previous beta. The user database now gets loaded in a separate thread, which reduces startup time. The help system and find dialog are now initialized only when they’re needed, rather than at startup, thereby further reducing startup time and the memory footprint.
