xhtml (php) to doc (rtf) or pdf Oct. 12th, 2007 @ 07:02 pm
Is there a way to convert xhtml formatted documents as a document/rich text file or a pdf on the fly?

I have looked at htmldoc, but it does not support css in the current release and even in the upcoming 1.9 release, only CSS1 tags are supported and not the positioning tags.

What I am looking to do is create my resumé in an xhtml 1.0 or 1.1 document and be able to have it convert to word or even pdf. All the agencies that have been contacting me have requested a doc format of my resumé. I have a doc (and pdf) version, but I hate having to do double entry and then save to pdf. I could save as html in OO.org, but I hate doing that. I like the clean xhtml resum&eacue;.

My resumé can be found <a href="http://www.lordjester.com/resume/>here</a>. Already, there is a revision difference on the technical resumé. Also, the non-technical version is not offered up in doc and pdf. I have searched quite a bit and fond services, but they are using the aforementioned htmldoc toolkit. There is a lot of hits on rtf to xhtml, but not vice versa. Thanks for any help you can give. Jeff

Free Site Search Jul. 6th, 2005 @ 11:41 am

I'm looking for a free site search feature.


Standard search engine features for a specific web site.
Remotely hosted (no CGI/Scripting of any kind on the actual web site)
No advertising

Bit of a tall order due to the last two. Google do it, with targetted adsense, atomz do it with targetted adsense-like advertising. Both of which are (duh) providing links to our comptetitors at the top of site search on our site (not good). Company of course doesn't want to 1) pay for scripting support on the hosting or 2) pay google 2k a year for adsense free site search.

Anyone know of anything?

I've been running my site with Geeklog for some time now, and while I'm still pretty happy with it I have a few niggles and a new project that requires something different. So a few questions on CMS systems.

I've used geeklog and Nuke. Geeklog is a lot better than Nuke. What's better than Geeklog? What are people using to run that kind of site? Xoops? How does it compare for running a nuke/geeklog style site? Is Ezpublish worth looking at?

Next. I am working on a project that is more like an online book, I'm looking for a CMS suitable for running that. preferable with versioning and workflow for approval of articles. Any suggestions?
» Google Suggest, part deux
A little while ago, I asked if anyone understood the Google Suggest code.

If anyone's still interested, take a look at http://serversideguy.blogspot.com/2004/12/google-suggest-dissected.html for a breakdown.

Google just launched Google Suggest... anyone got any ideas how it works? The JavaScript is pretty dense, by design I suppose.

From: CatB: On Management and the Maginot Line

"My friend, familiar with both the open-source world and large closed projects, believes that open source has been successful partly because its culture only accepts the most talented 5% or so of the programming population. She spends most of her time organizing the deployment of the other 95%, and has thus observed first-hand the well-known variance of a factor of one hundred in productivity between the most able programmers and the merely competent.

The size of that variance has always raised an awkward question: would individual projects, and the field as a whole, be better off without more than 50% of the least able in it? Thoughtful managers have understood for a long time that if conventional software management's only function were to convert the least able from a net loss to a marginal win, the game might not be worth the candle."

Get rid of 50% of the less able programmers in the market. Good plan. Those of us that are more able will get better salaries and a happier day at work. If we culled off those who entered the profession because it paid well, and they liked computer games. Those who aren't interested in Programming really.

Then people wouldn't get narked at the people fucking up shit they have to clean up as much. Higher quality code would be produced without the dross poluting the CVS/SourceSafe/SubVersion repositories. Bad design would be less common.

And like I said, with a smaller, more talented pool to draw on, we'd have higher salaries in better jobs.

You really ought to do the same to the pool of IT project managers with no skill or training who bumble along fucking up the project even when it is purely consisting of the top 50% of talent.
