Moving ip

This blog will be changing ip address some time tonight/early tomorrow as the splendid folks at JaguarPC are putting this site onto a faster and better connected box, for the princely sum of zero extra bucks!

I ought to praise JaguarPC more often, I pay very little ($8/month) for more bandwidth than I can consume and a fast enough server that offers everything I currently need. Less than 2 beers a month for something that just sits there and works can't be bad, lets see how well the new box goes.

The DNS stuff is all set ready to go, see you on the other side!

Jaiku to Twitter How-to

There's a fair bit of noise in the blogosphere about the nano-blogging battle between Twitter, Jaiku and Loopnote. Ewan's summary does a good job of rounding up the coverage, and Chris Saad's overview of the 3 services provides some useful background too.

As a user, you might not want to put all your eggs in one basket and use just one service, so your best bet is to mix and match. There's a couple of tutorials on how to use Twitter as your main service and to get it to cross-post to your Jaiku account, here and here, which work simply due to Jaiku's ability to consume RSS feeds, I see this as a big plus for Jaiku - flexibility is good!

Jaiku's extra flexibility appeals to me, their native S60 client is a big draw too, the lack of IM integration is a pain, but I can't believe their website can be flakier than Twitter's...

So taking the leap, how would you cross-post to Twitter from Jaiku? The simple route is RSS, but, Twitter hasn't (yet?) gained native support for RSS import, so your best bet is to use one of the third party services like twitterfeed or rss2twitter. Here's how to do it with twitterfeed:

  1. Create a new twitter user at twitter.com (or use your existing one); as this twitter user is going to be the one posting your blog entries, twitterfeed needs to know your twitter username and password to post your Jaiku updates to your twitter account
  2. Login to twitterfeed using your OpenID - Don't have an OpenID? Get one free at MyOpenID. AOL, Yahoo! and Livejournal users should find they already have an OpenID anyway
  3. Tell twitterfeed the URL for your Jaiku RSS feed, and how often twitterfeed should post to twitter. Your Jaiku RSS feed is easy to find; for instance, Mike Rowehl's can be found at the foot of his Jaiku page as http://mikerowehl.jaiku.com/feed/rss
  4. That's it!

Easy enough, no? For instance here's a Twitter user that I set up using twitterfeed which follows the latest Unrumor.com business headlines, it took me longer to create the twitter user than to add the feed.
