Welcome to BackBurner. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!
Whether it is commuting to work or relaxing on the weekend I am constantly plugged into Overcast.fm listening to industry updates, stories from night vale, or the ever-relaxing voice of Roman Mars. When I was first breaking into the podcast scene it was difficult for me to identify shows that were both digestible and relevant.
Recently I was responsible for migrating a WordPress site from a 3rd party hosting service to my personal LEMP stack. The issue with this migration was that there were around 17,000 comments sitting untouched in the comments section creating an excessive amount of bloat in the .XML export, ~51mbs to be precise.
Thankfully I found this handy post from Neil R suggesting SED as a possible solution. After modifying his solution slightly for OSX, It now removes all comments from the WordPress export via a single command in Terminal.
$ sed '/<wp:comment>/,/<\/wp:comment>/d' export.xml > export.clean.xml
This will go through
export.xml removing each instance of
<wp:comment></wp:comment> it comes across. Afterwards then saves the output in
This post assumes that the user is aware of how to use Mac Terminal to navigate between folders and edit specific files.

Hello World! I can’t even count how many times I’ve designed, setup and published a personal portfolio at this point, but this version is different. In the past I’ve created sites to showcase my game design skill set as well as my interactive media interests, however none have come together as beautifully as GriffenFargo.com.
This portfolio is simplistic both in the front and back-end. Hosted on my personal LEMP Stack, I worked on refining page optimization, UIX, and responsive fallbacks for all devices more than any of my previous portfolios. This site will also serve as my showcase for all Front-End / UIX work I do in the future.
