Embedding a Bibtex publication list in a website with PHP

Now that I have a more professional website, I wanted to include on it a list of publications. It took me a while to figure out a "good" way to do this, and many things I tried didn't work, so here's the solution I eventually settled on.

Maybe it can help you too! Continue reading "Embedding a Bibtex publication list in a website with PHP"

Twitter account suspended

Aw man.  I got hacked (or something) and an obviously spam message got posted in my twitter feed. Of course, I've had my account suspended, pending investigation. I should be back up within a month, according to twitter. I don't know whether the error is twitter's or mine, but needless to say every place where I used the same password as for twitter has been changed, just in case. All in all, not as painful as it might have been, I guess!

Faith schools

I've just posted a short essay on faith schools, based on a talk I once gave for a Warwick Atheists event called "The Importance of Atheism". The essay was prompted by a friend of mine's suggestion:

Got an idea for a blog article for you to do: "Faith Schools = Child Abuse?".

Do it, doooo eet. There could be a Bear Ass in it for you ;)

Well, I'm not sure if I'd go as far as to say that faith schools are child abuse — those are strong words. But I certainly think they're heinously bad for a number of reasons.

Upgrade

Over the last few days there've been a number of occasions when I've thought about something, and then thought "I wanna write something about this, but it's too long to sum up in 140 characters".  I've had CaiWingfield.com registered for a while, and had some vague nothing sitting in a WordPress framework for a while.  I had fun designing some fancy AJAX site but then (as is always the way) realised that I had no actual content.  So today I decided that I'd go ahead and upgrade to WordPress 2.7, clear out everything that was content-free, and start again.  Here it is.  I'll probably add design back in, slowly, as it's fun.
