Welcome Back to a Secret Blog

Spy vs SpyToday is the beginning of a new era of privacy on this blog. Well, technically speaking it's really the re-beginning of an era... let me explain...

You see, I used to be able to create posts that were private and only viewable by logged in users. A year ago WordPress released a new version, and while it was sparkly and wonderful it also broke my ability to do this (by breaking Fil's excellent private-post plugin "Post Levels"). So instead of exposing all of my private posts to the world I squirreled them away, hoping that someday I would be able to bring them back.

Ladies and Gentlemen: That day is today. Thanks to Peter Holiday's outstanding plugin WP Sentry (which is based on Fil's plugin), I am now able to control who can see certain posts.

Some things to know...

  1. You must have an account on this blog to see private posts. Log in here or create one.
  2. The most recent private post that currently exists is from February 28th, 2008. I will likely post more now that people can actually see them.
  3. To see ALL of my old private posts (there are 44 of them) click here.
  4. If you are logged in and still don't see any private posts please let me know - I probably didn't recognize the username or e-mail address you registered with.

    Yeah, I pretty much abandoned the plugin. Was too much work, for very little reward. As _why recently said: “programming is rather thankless. u see your works become replaced by superior ones in a year. unable to run at all in a few more.” Glad others took up the flag.

    Saw the incoming link on my blog and came by to check it out — good to happen across a fellow IU alumnus in the wild. It's also good to see that Sentry works well for you. Shoot me an email if you run into any trouble with it.

    Indeed – it's a small world after all. You putting that law degree to good use?

    Putting a law degree to GOOD use? Sounds like a trick question to me.

    (Serious answer: I'm studying for the bar, hoping to take it some time in 2010)
