Piwik is an open source (GPLed) web analytics program. It looks very comprehensive. I will endeavour to install it and test it out soon. I’ll report back on it when I do. There is also a WordPress plugin for Piwik.
Magnar from @emacsrocks has produced some really nice emacs demos. They confirm my emacs tragic status. I hope to one day be 1/10th as good as Magnar. I found the video about multiple-cursors particularly fascinating. In fact all the videos are mind-blowing!

I used to host about 10 individual WordPress installations. Managing them and keeping them all up to date was a pain, and that meant I always had sites that were… Continue reading Migrating single site WordPress installations to a multisite network
