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. I had been hoping that I would be able to find time to upgrade my Text Filter Suite plugin for WordPress (which includes my Pirate filter for posts and comments), but I’ve just been too busy. Maybe I can get it re-worked for next year. I already know what I want to do with it: Consolidate all of the filter code, maybe re-do things in an OOP style, add the concept of ‘registering’ a filter with the system, and add a back-end user interface to make it easier to use.

Anyways, enjoy all the piratey goodness today!

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

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