I've been hearing a lot of buzz about Ruby on Rails, so I finally got down to running through the tutorial at: http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/onlamp/2005/01/20/rails.html
Pretty impressive I must say, but the jury will be out until I get to try and build something ‘real world’ with it. This might not be for a while, as all of my spare ‘geek’ spare time is being invested in Umbraco at the moment.
I am pretty sure it would handle any of the web projects that usually land at my feet, but it always comes down to whether I ‘like’ it or not.
Also, I did a brief search for UK based shared hosting packages that support ROR and only managed to find one.
a little spring cleaning:
Upgraded to Umbraco 4.7
Set up auto tagging of posts using the awesome OpenCalais API
Rewritten search to use Umbraco Examine
Highlighted search results
Used Umbraco base AJAX to start suggesting results... examine to find similarly
Search result highlighting is based upon the
techniques described over on the wiki at our.umbraco.org and
I've also put together an
Umbraco package which allows you to get examine search result
highlighting up and running quickly.
Finally to have a look at Base AJAX search results in action
just start typing a search term in the search box in the
right hand column. As soon as a match is found a window will pop up
After a lot of frustration trying to implement content search in Umbraco yesterday I decided that this article may be a good idea.
I wrote it all in one quick sitting, so I haven’t had time to go through it with a fine tooth comb yet and check the spelling and grammar.
The more I write tutorials and docs, the more I become convinced that screencasts are better, so I will try and create the article as a screencast too.
a wiki page over at our umbraco that shows how to highlight
search terms in Umbraco
examine searches using
Lucene.Net.Highlight. Source code is attached to the wiki
The code was lifted from an
original forum post... the result is quite
pleasing - the highlighter will highlight terms even if you are
using fuzzy terms derived from your original search text:
I'd classify this is a 30 minute hack. I don't fully understand
the inner workings of what i've put together. The code effectively
does a search within a search against the query results to perform
the highlighting so I am sure there are efficiency gains to be had.
You can see from the screenshot above that highlighting takes
I'm not really into opinionated blog posts, but just for
If you haven't seen Entourage, then I recommend you watch it.
Here are a couple of clips of Ari -one of the main characters - at
his best. (Not for the easily offended).
Here is a quick demonstration of how to generate PDF files from

My favourite sample here is date formatting, Tim recently wrote a post on date formatting using XSLT and I love the simplicity of my sample when it comes to tasks like this.
So, a brief overview of what is going on here.
Umbraco backup 1.1 is available for download. Although labelled beta, this release will only be updated if user bugs are
reported in the next few weeks.
Before I give details on the product, a brief statement on the future of Umbraco Backup.
Recently I have undertaken a contract
that is challenging to the extent that I don't have the drive for development in my spare time. Additionally my health has not
been so good of late. As a result the only development on Umbraco backup will be bug fixes on issues reported by licensed users.
This position may change in the future.
Now for some details of Umbraco Backup 1.1. Sorry if my grammar isn't great, I'm in a hurry today....
Firstly, all of the new features are a result
My list of archived content by month in the right hand side
navigation of this page was getting a little long. The following
jQuery script replaces the un-ordered list with a select input
which takes up much less page real estate.
The page still looks the same to any passing search engines
var archiveContent = '';
archiveContent += '<option value="'+$('a:first', this).attr('href')
archiveContent = '<li>\n<form id="archiveForm"><select
archiveContent += '</select><input type="submit" value="go
