New Xpostulate release in the works

leave a comment »

Okay, I just pushed new code for Xpostulate to github with the following changes:

  • removed iziblog, scribbld, inksome (spam SEO havens anyway)
  • removed twitter until I can get oauth working
  • added support for custom wordpress installations
  • added support for posting to friendika with bbcode insertions
  • changed feature to support any installation.
  • also, various pertinent alterations to gui, of course

all in ONE DAY! because I F–KING ROCK!

I have NOT updated the win/lin installers on the main Xpostulate page, yet.
I have to play with installjammer and get those worked up again, and will probably give a day or two for this new code to be tested,
since, it seems, I now have a contributor on the project who seems willing to test and prod this code.


Still to do:

  • I really, really want a button to click to automagically translate bbcode to html or vice-versa. That I can do, but need time.
  • Get oauth working for twitter…maybe
  • add support for blogger
  • change the LJ, IJ, DJ, DW to be simple moveabletype, with multiple options, rather than hardwired for 4 different sites, so, say, if you only use LJ and DW, you don’t have DJ and IJ cluttering your interface, or, even, if you have multiple LJ accts (I do, one for my art, other for hackery), you can do that, etc.

Now, I really must get back to translating these Brazilian pharma regulations.

September 18, 2011 at 1:47 pm = Webmastery Awesomeness

leave a comment »

I actually have two sites up, at the moment, to showcase (and market) my webmastery awesomeness.
I’m in the process of deciding which will stay and which will go.

They are:

hand written with some jquery niftiness
WINNER! This page now rests at both: AND!!


built with joomla

Which ever wins, in the end, will likely remain at BOTH URLs, & . UPDATE: winner has been determined…

So…what do YOU think?

further xpostulations

leave a comment »

I have now successfully posted to my own wordpress installation here at (see this post), using Xpostulate

Lotso progress this weekend:
Added wordpress posting, scribbld and inksome, changed LJ, IJ , DJ and DW posting to xmlrpc.
For some reason, I was unable to get scribbld and iziblog to accept xml posts.
At this juncture, scribbld, iziblog and inksome are all being sent flat posts, but, it would be better if all blogs were using the same method, rather than some accepting xmlrpc, and others using flat posting.
So, I need to figure out why scribbld and iziblog are refusing xmlrpc posts (and test xmlrpc with inksome).
That’s high on my priority list, at the moment.

Also, I will write in the means for YOU (dear user) to use Xpostulate with your custom wordpress installation, as I have just done with mine (wordpress posting in the currently released version is only to, but since I am now successfully posting to my custom install, shortly you will have the same option).

Then, of course, as previously mentioned various times, I will be implementing blogger functions, hopefully.

Further Xpostulations: v.0.2 release shortly

with one comment


In the past 24 hours I have successfully implemented xmlrpc posting for LJ, IJ and DW, as already mentioned.

I have added posting to and, as well,
And, I have successfully posted to my WordPress.

It seems I will be posting a new zip shortly to the Xpostulate page with support for these features.

There’ still plenty of work to be done, such as tweaking and configuring the interface, adding more features (especially support for blogger api), etc.

Nonetheless, I’m satisfied enough with what’s been done so far, I’m finally going to take Xpostulate from v. 0.1 to v. 0.2
Big step!


I’ll call it v1.0 when it has blogger support and can download prior entries for editing.
I believe I’ve mentioned this, but I don’t, at least at this juncture, foresee myself adding stuff like friend management, etc…but who knows…Maybe for version 2.0?

BSoft wordpress theme

leave a comment »

I made my own WordPress theme…

Sort of.
It’s a modified version of the plaintxtblog theme by Scott Wallick. Basically, I just changed the colors to make it more consistent with the rest of the site.

Get the BSoft wordpress theme at the page.
