Anyway, I also spent nearly a half hour getting the right settings for ScribeFire to work with blogs.sun.com's Roller services, since the references I turned up in the internal mail archives were wrong. It turns out the correct answer is in an example in the Roller 3.1 User Guide, so I figured I might as well record them here so I and others will get it right in the future with a little less time wasted.
For ScribeFire 1.3.5, tell the account wizard:
- blog url: http://blogs.sun.com/dminer
- press Manually Configure
- select Custom Blog
- select MetaWeblog API
- Server API URL: http://blogs.sun.com/roller-services/xmlrpc
- provide username and password

Rather than spend a huge amount of time preparing boring StarOffice slides for tonight's talk to NEOSUG, I've taken the tack of driving it off the OpenSolaris project's content directly.

I've been at Sun for just shy of 15 years. In fact, just ordered my anniversary gift last night - a nice Seiko watch which I probably won't wear very often. I suffer(?) from a fairly low bling quotient.
My primary expertise is in networking protocols and system management. The most visible thing I've contributed to Solaris is the DHCP Manager GUI; the most recent, parts of the new SMF inetd(1M) implementation in Solaris 10. The oldest? Well, there's still some code in sysidtool(1M) of which I was the original author. Along the way, I also spent some time doing PC-NFS-related software, building a modestly successful but little-remembered product called SolarNet PC-Admin, from whence the Solaris DHCP server originated. Got to write some Windows GUI code for that product. I probably like GUI's more than your typical Solaris engineer ;-)
Nowadays I'm responsible for the Solaris network configuration protocols and services, and also the Solaris installation software. We're making plans for a lot of improvements in these areas, I expect I'll be able to write more about that in the not-too-distant future. Meantime I'll have some notes on DHCP or inetd to talk about; if you've got specific questions on either topic drop me a note here or post 'em on comp.unix.solaris or firstname.lastname@example.org, where I regularly answer questions.
I'm the architect for Solaris deployment and system management, with a lot of background in networking on the side. I spend a lot of my time currently operating Solaris Engineering's OpenStack cloud. I am co-author of the OpenSolaris Bible (Wiley, 2009). I also play a lot of golf.
