Here’s a cool thing. I received an e-mail yesterday from Dave Kellam, someone I didn’t know. An excerpt:
Just found your blog today, via India Amos. I’m an aspiring book designer, and it’s been fun poking through your site. One of the posts linked to another post (http://www.rightreading.com/blog/2008/09/03/wordpress-plugin-wanted/) about wanting a WP plugin. I’ve created a few WordPress plugins, and might be able help you out with you with a custom plugin.
I wanted to automatically link to a specific date in my daybook based on today’s date. It’s a small thing, but the daybook was one of the first things I did on the web, around fourteen years ago, and I still like to promote it a little.
Dave redid the program as php, and even made a little WordPress widget using it. You can see it in action near the top of the left sidebar, between the right reading definition and the mess of links to various of my pages and sites.
UPDATE: My server is located in Chicago and the php echoes server time, so I’ve added a time function and a note to this effect since the date will be different in different parts of the world.
