activeCollab gets a facelift with 1.0 nearing release

Have been giving activeCollab 0.71 a good workout with the current projects and while there are some quirks as compared to using WebCollab, I would say its a great transition to make project management easier. Noticed that the activeCollab site got a long overdue upgrade and hope to see the 1.0 release soon!

Posting to WordPress via Windows Live Writer cause “The server committed a protocol violation”

Had been having problems posting to windows hosted blogs with wordpress via Windows Live Writer. Finally found the solution after googling for it. Apparently, its a security measure made to prevent attacks againt malformed HTTP status lines and headers. Not sure of the exact cause since only upgraded to Plesk 8.2 on the windows server but anyway, the solution works.

Added to live writer’s config file “WindowsLiveWriter.exe.config”

<?xml version =”1.0″?>
      <httpWebRequest useUnsafeHeaderParsing=”true” />

[WordPress] Front page link to second page shows “index.phpIndex.php” when hosting on IIS

Been having a rather curious bug on WordPress installations on IIS such that for the front page, the previous post link to the second page keeps showing “index.phpIndex.php” instead of forming the correct url path.

Finally fixed this by modifying the code at “/wp-includes/link-template.php”

function get_pagenum_link($pagenum = 1) {
// insert before return $qstr
$qstr = str_replace("index.phpIndex.php","index.php",$qstr);
return $qstr;


Get invited to beta sites with Invite Share

Guess with all the craze over private betas and web launches, it had to happen sooner or later.  The team behind InviteShare aims to help get those invites lying in your beta account on popular sites out to the community. I logged on to see some familiar sites like Joost (which I had sent approximately 60) and Dopplr (sent 3 so far). Some of the sites  like Pownce which I had recently only learnt about were also on. Unfortunately, Popfly and Google Mashup editor don’t have invites yet so they aren’t listed.

It would be interesting to see what are the plans for InviteShare. Since they are already aggregating invites in typical mashup style these days, offering an API that offers OpenID integration to truly open up the invite scene would be pretty interesting? Imagine just logging on to one place with a single identity to give you access to private betas that are running.
