Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day again!

The beatings will continue until morale improves!
Ahoy, me maties!

Aye, it’s Talk Like a Pirate Day once again. And as customary, me blog is piratified by me Text Filter Suite plugin. For today, all th' writin' will be automatically translated into pirate speak, by Blackbeard's sword. If ye leave comments, ye don’t have t' go out o' yer way t' talk pirate, just write normally, and th' filters will take care o' thin's fer ye.

  6. I will have t' write a spanish version o' this plugin, in Latin America, where most o' th' pirates spent their days, we have no pirate day, damn, and a bucket o' chum! We will have t' make it!

  8. Dawny says:

    This is awesome… I’m bummed that I missed out! Where can I get th' plug-in?

  9. Iva says:

    I tried t' implement it on 19th and it resulted in me pages loadin' only t' th' loop. Aarrr! I wonder what were bein' wrong, ye scurvey dog. I would love t' implement one o' th' other filters on next available occasion.

    • Dougal says:

      I’m not sure what ye mean. Can ye describe th' problem in more detail, to be sure?

      I like t' turn on either th' ‘Fudd’ or ‘Chef’ filters fer April Fools Day.

      • Iva says:

        It could be a collission with one o' th' other plugins. Basically, with th' plugin activated, me loop does not load anymore. And hoist the mainsail! I hope it made more sense now. 🙂

    This is fun and now i’m in th' mood fer a party. Let’s dress up like pirates and take pictures fer Halloween. Fire the cannons! That would be much more interestin' than writin' about addiction treatment statistics all day long.

  16. Spyros says:

    Pretty cool plugin but th' important question is :

    where did i put th' rum ? 🙂

  17. This weekend were bein' Halloween mates. Did ye guys break ten bottles o' Rum like I did?

    Yay! Pirate day everyday! Fire the cannons! Who’s with me?!
