mv My\ Opera WordPress

26 Feb

I have had an on-line blog since June 2006 (or, as I noticed recently, since precisely 6/6/6). I chose to have it hosted on My.opera.com for convenience. The style was rudimentary but I found it pleasant enough. I’ve found it functional, at the very least. Here is a screen shot of that blog home page:

And I move its content to wordpress.com on Sunday. Here is a screen shot of the blog home page after import and some tweaking:

On My Opera, the blog received 35872 visits. Some posts got comments, I can’t easily find out how many. All these were not imported, unfortunately. I will miss them from my records. So, I will remember that some people frequently left a note, or the occasional visitor did.

I am using the WordPress Bueno theme which I’m very fond of.

Update 2014-01-31: A belated update to add to the record the announcement Opera made 8 months afterwards, that they were shutting down myopera.com.

Opera 12: new version, new esoteric bug

21 Jun
I’m taking the time to document the obscure bug that I often experience with Opera 12 (like every other day since I installed version 12 on the day it was released).

It is a surprising bug to say the least, not too annoying (as you’ll understand, Opera quickly recovers from it), but still, I reported it (DSK-367824).

[Update 2012-06-26: This is a duplicate of DSK-365797]

For no good reason that I can see or that console logs can explain, Opera actions are suddenly mapped to others, regardless that I use their keyboard shortcuts or that I click commands in the menus. When this happen, I feel like Opera is in play mode (like it’s a software thing to replace commands with other actions!).

For example, I want a new tab but get the window to “Open…”. The first time that occurred, I thought “aha! so I need to press cmd-o if I want to get a new tab.” Nope, all I got was the “Save As…” window. In play mode, it’s “Save As…”, or cmd-s, that will open a new tab. Consistently. Except that I don’t know what triggers play mode.

I played as long as I could, it was entertaining. The play-mode key-combos I found are:
cmd-t (for new tab) == open file
cmd-n (for new window) == save-as
cmd-s (to save) == new tab
cmd-c (to copy selection) == fullscreen
cmd-v (to paste selection) == right click
cmd-w (to close tab) == game over, it does cmd-q (to quit).
