2010 Personal Annual Report

Inspired by Brian Suda and his Personal Annual Reports and by Nicholas Felton and his Annual Reports I wrote my my 2009 Personal Annual Report last year. Here follows my Personal Annual Report for 2010.

I traveled eight times in 2010 and visited four different cities where I spend a total of 36 days. The rest of the year I was in München.

I have not been to the movies in 2010 and therefore saw no movie this year.

Right now I have 1424 items in my iTunes Library and I am subscribed to 27 podcasts. There are a total of 125 apps on my iPhone.

This year’s Status Quo about my online life: I wrote 10 blog posts (89 blog posts since July 2006) on portenkirchner.net and there was one comment (18 comments since July 2006), 3 blog posts (21 since September 2005) on portenkirchner WordPress.com with no comment this year (3 comments since September 2005), 1724 Tweets (3564 since November 2006), 1449 Dents (2175 since July 2008), saved 1012 public bookmarks on Delicious (3263 public bookmarks since July 2004), scrobbelt 27973 items on Last.fm (82998 items since September 2004) and uploaded 14 photos to Flickr (46 photos since April 2004).

2009 Personal Annual Report

Inspired by Brian Suda and his Personal Annual Reports and by Nicholas Felton and his Annual Reports I decided to gather some information.

I traveled eight times in 2009 and visited four different cities where I spend a total of 33 days. The rest of the year I was in München.

I saw a total of only one movie this year.

Right now I have 1243 items in my iTunes Library and I am subscribed to 27 podcasts. My iPhoto library includes 456 photos.

A Status Quo about my online life: I wrote 79 blog posts on portenkirchner.net with a total of 17 comments since July 2006, 18 blog posts on portenkirchner WordPress.com with a total of 3 comments since September 2005, 1840 Tweets since November 2006, 726 Dents since July 2008, saved 2251 public bookmarks on Delicious since July 2004, scrobbelt 55025 items on Last.fm since September 2004 and uploaded 32 photos to Flickr since April 2004.

portenkirchner.net getting naked

It’s CSS Naked Day ’08 today. People disable the styles on their web sites. The idea behind it is to promote Web Standards, the concept of separation of presentation and content.

For portenkirchner.net today is also the start of a redesign. When I began to use WordPress I used the Warpspire Hemingwyay Theme and applied some minor changes to it. I liked it because it was quite different to other themes. But over time I got dissatisfied with it. I do not only want a different style but also want the documents to have a different structure.

The redesign will be work in progress. The changes will be applied live during the coming weeks. First the pages will get a different structure, then I will work on the design.

Now running WordPress 2.3

It has not been long ago when I upgraded this WordPress installation. There is now the update to WordPress 2.3 avaiable. For me the most interesting new things are canonical URLs, update notification of new releases of WordPress or of plugins that are used and native tagging support.

Since some months I have been using Ultimate Tag Warrior but have not very happy with it and in my opinion it was not working properly all the time. So I was looking forward for the native tagging support in WordPress 2.3.

As the last time the upgrade was easy and fast. Moreover there is an option import Ultimate Tag Warrior tags into the new native tagging structure.

Comments now with microformats

For some time I use microformats on my contact page. Some days ago had the idea why not use microformats for comments to add hCard markup to the comment entries.

So first I had to replace <?php comment_author_link(); ?> with <a href="<?php comment_author_url() ?>"><?php comment_author() ?></a> in the WordPress template. Finally I added some microformats code: <span class="author vcard"><a class="fn url" href="<?php comment_author_url() ?>"><?php comment_author() ?></a></span>.

Hello world! Hello DokuWiki!

Some time ago I tried to install MediaWiki here. But as my hoster Comball does not have PHP 5 on their servers, MediaWiki did not work.

The other day a friend has been using a wiki, that was the same that is also used for the Web Montag web site: DokuWiki. So today I downloaded it, put it on the server and only some configuration later it was running. So here it is: portenkirchner.net | Wiki.

Hello world! Hello WordPress!

Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!

This is the first default blog entry when you install WordPress.

Since some time now I have been planning to use a CMS for my web site. After having a look at Moveable Type, Textpattern and WordPress I chose the last one.

But first I wanted to have a new design, for that I had quite some ideas but not really the time to implement. And looking back now, there were maybe too many ideas.

So finally today I decided to delete all files and install WordPress and use it form now on. Moreover the sites name now is portenkirchner.net and the old title porti’s island in the name became the subtitle.

The theme I use on time is Hemingway by Kyle Neath. I already changed the color, the font and some minor things. And there will come more changes in the future.
