Dr Small’s Linux Blogs project, revisited

Dr Small’s Linux Blog collection is growing quite fast, with 44 blogs listed there now. That’s in less than a month, which is no small feat. Um, I mean it is a Small feat. :( I mean. … Never mind.

I’ve debated dropping my own blogroll and linking just to that page, or perhaps keeping a more select list here and passing off the links that I have to him. I like having that list on my sidebar, but it does slow down the page, and sorting through them has never been a very exciting task. It’s rather like weeding.

I’m debating, but to be honest, as I get closer to the end of the month, Dr Small’s version looks more attractive all the time. ;)

    Well what’s the format to manually add them to your database? I might be able to export the list and wrangle it so it works for you. Is there a one-line example you can show me?

    Well, I could end up adding them all in with a SQL query, with phpminiadmin on the server, but anyhow, here’s the synatax I would have to use:

    INSERT INTO blogs_list (title, url, category)
    VALUES ('A Day in the Life of Derrick','http://afderrick.wordpress.coml','General');

    I think that might end up harder than manually submitting them O.O

    @William: Uh-oh. I think I struck a nerve there. …

    @Dr Small: Check back here this evening (or, in another four hours or so). I should have something scratched together. I don’t know about the category setting, but I’ll see what I can do.

    No sweat. A little search-and-replace, a little clipboard magic, and there it is. Merry belated Christmas. :)

    I had to set them all to General, of course. And I don’t know what you need as delimiters, but I prefixed apostrophes with a backslash, so they should be easy to find. And watch out for ampersands. And note that I append non-English blogs with their language code in parentheses. Have fun!

    As a reader of your blog, I quite like having the links on the right. After reading yours, I regularly click one at random. It’d be a pity if they were gone :(

    Currently the LinuxBlog project is down. Well, the entire host of 8ez.com is down. I think their moving to another server, so let’s hope I don’t lose anything… If I do, I’ll just have to reupload some stuff to get the LinuxBlog project going again, but that will total my blog :(

    I make database backups every night, so I always have the latest :)
