Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Yarrr! It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Once again, we have arrived on Talk Like a Pirate Day, and a bucket o' chum. I had been hopin' that I would be able t' find time t' upgrade me Text Filter Suite plugin fer WordPress (which includes me Pirate filter fer posts and comments), but I’ve just been too busy. Yaaarrrrr, we'll keel-haul ye! Maybe I can get it re-worked fer next year. I already know what I want t' do with it: Consolidate all o' th' filter code, maybe re-do thin's in an OOP style, add th' concept o' ‘registerin'’ a filter with th' system, and add a back-end user interface t' make it easier t' use.

Anyways, enjoy all th' piratey goodness today!

    I’th’ spirit o’ th’ day, I did misread th' “Recent Readers” box if it were “Recent Raiders.”

    @Kelson: You should file that as a bug with Yahoo/MyBlogLog, I'll warrant ye. It *should* say ‘Recent Raiders’ on Talk Like a Pirate Day!
