The Slow South-by Recovery

All use AOL’ers made it home last night, but it took a lot longer than we expected. Instead of one three hour flight on a small plane, it was two flights with a stop in Houston, lost luggage and a cab driver.\
I have so much I want to say, but right now, I just want to tell you how freaking tired I am, and how cool having all the SxSW notes up on a wiki is. As I find more peoples’ notes, especially for sessions we didn’t get notes for, I keep adding them. If you’ve got some you’d like to share, please feel free to add them. Also, if you’re a Mediawiki master and feel like sending me the right .htaccess to hide index.php in the url, I’d love that too.\
I’ll try to post the “new people from SxSW” list in the near future after I un-bury myself. There’s nothing like extreme engagement (panels, meals, socializing) to show you how much e-mail comes in. I was downloading 100+ messages every day, and barely able to read a tenth of them. This morning was an exercise in damage control. Oh, I long for the day when everything that I actually care about comes through NetNewsWire, and all the other cruft that ends up in my inbox just goes away.

  1. Sorry, Kev, but you aren’t publicly allowed to tell people how tired you are after I warned you not to stay up until 4 am everynight, yet you did it anyway… Spring Break is over babe, time for midterms.

  2. You might check this out … I snagged it from — they rewrite the index.php with mod_rewrite.

    # Various rewrite rules
    RewriteEngine on
    # Modify the RewriteBase if you are using Drupal in a subdirectory and the
    # rewrite rules are not working properly:
    #RewriteBase /drupal
    # Rewrite old-style URLS of the form 'node.php?id=x':
    #RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    #RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    #RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^id=([^&]+)$
    #RewriteRule node.php index.php?q=node/view/%1 [L]
    # Rewrite old-style URLs of the form 'module.php?mod=x':
    #RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    #RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    #RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^mod=([^&]+)$
    #RewriteRule module.php index.php?q=%1 [L]
    # Rewrite URLs of the form 'index.php?q=x':
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?q=$1 [L,QSA]
