I have decided to make a new website where I can combine my blog, old websites (pirules.com and pirules.net), some content from my mozdev projects. This may come as a shock after reading my previous domain names, but my new domain is pirules.org.
It will probably contain the content from my old websites, including computer tutorials and tweaks, the programs I wrote in high school, extension info, etc.; my new blog; support forums for my extensions; and a wiki.
It is hosted by HostGator since I’m always on the move (home, internship, college) and my ISPs would probably not like me if I hosted everthing. To my surprise, I was able to setup my account and get a jailshell today (Pi day/Saturday) and they were very quick. Ironically, I used to setup and support cPanel users.
My old host, 1&1 was good for the price, but I wanted access to more and larger databases, PHP 5, SSH, etc.
I would appreciate it if everyone would change all links to point to the my new website soon. I have not nearly finished bringing everything up to date yet.
- Forum (intended for extension support)
- Wiki (also intended for extension support)
- Main Site (warning – many links are broken; I’m still working on it). It links to pirules.com in several places.
- gContactSync extension information
- openCRX extension information
- I will continue to use Mozdev for the CVS repositories, Bugzilla, downloads, and basic information since it and the people who run it are awesome.
I have imported all of my blog posts to my new blog, and will probably write new posts in both locations until this one stops getting so many hits. I have not decided what to do with my old websites since they are both getting a steady flow of hits. pirules.com is hosted for free and remains to be the site with the most hits if you exclude my blog.
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I was asked to write an extension that would import contacts from and export contacts to openCRX. It is an open source (BSD-style license) Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solution with a lot of Groupware features
It shares a lot of code with gContactSync with a few less Address Book modifications, although I have not merged some recent v0.2 changes in yet. It is fully compatible with gContactSync, but does not require it.
- Download (still under initial development/testing and works best in Thunderbird 3.0 Beta 2 or higher)
- Extension Description
- Extension Information
- Mozdev project
- openCRX homepage
- openCRX features
Today is ‘Pi Day’ in the US (March 14th is represented as 3/14 in our stange date format). I noticed mozdev.org has “3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510…” in their header, which is correct if you don’t want to round the last 0 to a 1 (the next digit is 5). I decided not to memorize 64 more digits (to bring me from 250 to 314) at the moment but there is always next year.
Edit: Almost forgot to mention that the House of Representatives ‘supports’ the designation of March 14th as Pi Day.
