Migrating del.icio.us

I decided to move my del.icio.us bookmarks to a more “business like” username. I exported from del.icio.us, then imported into the new username, but it marks everything as “not shared”, and there’s no “share all” function.

I suspect this is an anti-spam measure, but it was a real pain. Anyways, a bit of digging and I found this blog entry that contains a script that allows you to, albeit slowly, automate much of the process. A tip though – don’t open multiple tabs and run this script as del.icio.us might lock you out…

Mac Office on 10.4 – font corruption issue

I just opened Word on my Mac at work (running Mac OS 10.4 aka “Tiger”) and it started complaining about a corrupt font during the font optimization process when starting up – then promptly crashed.

Google pointed me to this – but I found that using the free Linotype FontExplorer X to clear the system and application font caches (both options under the Tools menu) fixed the problem.

Just thought I’d share in case any of y’all run into the same issue…
