Better Extended Live Archives

A long time a go, when WordPress was young (like version 1.5), And K2 was young. There was a plugin called Extended Live Archive (ELA).

I love the organization that this plugin gave to a bolg’s entries. It is still my preferred presentation of posts on a blog. Over the years all the software has developed K2 is now in version 1.0.3, WordPress is in version 3.0 and ELA has become Better Extended Live Archive (BELA) thanks to Charles

Here is a series of links – in no particular order – which talk about the development of ELA.

.

I have had a problem with how BELA Presents the entries by Date:

Better Live Archives by Date

Better Live Archives By Date

Notice how all the blog entires at the bottom are displayed on top of each other.
I can not figure out how to un-do that.

Notice also in the following two pictures of the sort by Tags and sort by Category list the entries are not displayed on top of each other.

For checking this live: you can look at the archive. This has been checked in several browsers:

  • Safari
  • Flock
  • Firefox
  • Cruz

All to no avail. (That is it does not appear to be a Browser based issue.)

SSH, Unix commands & RegEx

This summer I am sitting in on a computational linguistics course. It is the first instruction I have had about UNIX. Pretty Awesome.
This has required me to do some googling looking from terminal commands.

This is kind of a sketch of where I have been.

UNIX:

Regular Expressions:

RegEx and Unicode:
One of the issues that I have had with RegEx has been what is a natural class? i.e. [A-Z], [A-Za-z], [0-9], etc. As a linguist I deal a lot with IPA characters, subscripts, superscripts, unicode, and diacritics. How am I to define a natural class with these? Can I define a natural class based on the phonology of the language?

So I did some more searching:
