… or, how I brought an old python code back from the dead!
Inspired by Kenneth Reitz's recent post and spurred by recent events, I decided to turn an old python code I wrote a while back into something that can be (hopefully) easier to get to than by sheer luck.
I’m talking about ChoppedPress, my script that let’s you split WordPress exported XML files into smaller files that can be easily imported into new WordPress installations.
Recentemente eu comecei o processo de migrar o meu blog para o Tumblr, e ao importar os posts antigos do WordPress eu sem querer iniciei uma enxurrada onde certos agregadores estão mostrando posts de 2007… Ontem eu também causei um problema similar no Twitter e Facebook…
Por favor aceite os meus mais sinceros pedidos de desculpas pelo incoveniente… depois escrevo mais sobre a migração para o Tumblr!

You probably remember reading about my issues with running my WordPress-based blog on Dreamhost's environment, and how frustrated I was with the experience of using their Private Server services.

Hopefully I can get a copy of the most recent backup, assuming there is one to get! I know some of you are probably saying: “Hey idiot!!! Did you remember to back up everything before upgrading?
