This week, as part of the twilio.com SMS contest, I decided to quickly whip up a reminder service that would send your phone a text when you told it to. Even without the contest, I would have done it anyway, but it just provided a good incentive to do it now. Once you sign up, you have two ways of setting reminders, either from your account, or from your phone by sending a text message in the appropriate format. There’s still a little work to do, but it’s been sending me proper reminders for a couple days so that works for me :)
This week I’ve been making a few changes around the blog from a new design to a new overall post structure. There’s still some work to go on it so please bare with me for a couple of days :)
I like Dan’s Open Calais Auto Tagger plugin, but I found Open Calais wasn’t always quite returning the results I wanted when I used their service for specific sites. YQL lets you send content and returns tags and they’ve been relatively relevant to the post, so I forked Dan’s plugin (with his permission of course), and modified it to use YQL instead of Open Calais, the end result was this small plugin. With the YQL Auto Tagger plugin, you’ll never have to think of tags for your posts again. The plugin uses the Yahoo Query Language to perform semantic analysis of your post text and suggest tags for you. Add them to your post with just a click.

If you have posts that include the nofollow attribute on links, you may at some point decide to remove them. By default, WordPress doesnt insert nofollow attributes in post content, but there are a variety of plugins that will insert nofollow into all links in post content. Or perhaps you have been manually adding nofollow tags to your post links for SEO purposes. Regardless of how they got there, its very easy to clean things up and remove all nofollow attributes from post content.
