only on tumblr would over 565,000 people be fascinated by a table. This is why I love you guys.
The manufacturer is Gletcher Burwell-Taylor. Their site has some good videos explaining how they’re made (by hand, of course) and showing an installation. Remarkable piece of furniture.
Yesterday one of my friends was trying to add tags to all of her old Tumblr posts, but finding which of her (hundreds of) posts were untagged by hand seemed like a slow way to do it. I wrote a script to get a list of all your posts which don’t have tags, and I posted it for other people to use. Enjoy! :)
…a collection of utilities dealing with Tumblr blogs.
- tumble.py creates new posts from RSS or Atom feeds
- tumblr_backup.py makes a local backup of posts and images
- mail_export.py mails tagged links to a recipient list
- delicious_import.py imports delicious.com links into Tumblr
The backup includes all images from photo and photoset posts. An index links to monthly pages, which contain all the posts from the respective month with links to single post pages. Command line options select which posts to backup and set the output format.
By default, all posts of a blog are backed up in minimally styled HTML.
I haven’t tried this personally, but it looks like a pretty good tool. Attach it to a
cron job and set it to run periodically. Backups are important. :)
Reblog if you’ve formed a meaningful relationship with someone you met online.
On the latest episode of the Accidental Tech Podcast, Marco, Casey and John were discussing podcasts. They were comparing them to blogging, the way more people wanted to have their own podcast, and how the tools for making your own podcast compare to those for making your own blog. A little over an hour in, Marco mentioned a useful Easter egg in Tumblr for podcasters.
I don’t usually link to my blog from Tumblr, but this is an exception. I think this is sufficiently useful to people on Tumblr (and if not here, then where?) that it probably merits linking here as well. An easy way to get an RSS feed for a podcast on Tumblr, if the audio files are hosted elsewhere.
