Amazing!

A politician making sense when talking about the bail out! It’s astounding! And even better he’s from my state!

I HAS PLANZ

While watching the debate, I heard McCain smugly say “I have plans” and you know he’s right. He does have plans which this image (with a bit of paraphrasing) more accurately depicts.

Yo, ho, ho and a bottle of rum!

My pirate name is:
Mad Dog Kidd

Part crazy, part mangy, all rabid, you’re the pirate all the others fear might just snap soon. Even though you’re not always the traditional swaggering gallant, your steadiness and planning make you a fine, reliable pirate. Arr!

Now-Reading Tweaks v2

Some time back, I tried to make Rob Miller’s Now-Reading plugin display who’s reading each book on the individual pages. But the PHP code I posted at that time didn’t work like I thought it did, my interests changed and I moved onto other things. Today I had a visitor stop by asking about my broken tweak. So I took another look at the code and I believe I’ve got something that works this time.

// Now-Reading Plugin: Get the display name of the book's reader
function mlm_book_reader( $echo=true ) {
	global $book;

	$user_info = get_userdata($book->reader);
	
	if ( $echo )
		echo $user_info->display_name;
	return $user_info->display_name;
		
}

This grabs “Display name publicly as” from the user’s profile and displays it on the page. I put the function in the functions.php file of the theme I’m using (so any automatic upgrades of the plugin won’t erase it). Then I put < ?php mlm_book_reader() ?> into my custom single.php template and viola!

Note: this has only been tested on WordPress 2.6.2 with Now-Reading 4.4.3.
