So you’ve got a blog with several years of posts and photos on it and you want to make a book out of it to preserve those memories but you don’t have time to design each page. You need an automated-ish solution. What to do?
Here’s what I did…
Step 1: Blogbooker.com
First I went to blogbooker.com. After playing around with their free plan to figure out what I wanted, I sprang for their $19 package and chose the following options:
- PDF output
- High (lossless) picture quality
- 7.5″ x 9.25″ paper size (important!)
I did not include comments or a table of contents, as these severely blimped out the size of the book.

Scenario: To make use of a new feature in a certain dependency or to get a bugfix that’s causing your project pain, you bump the version of a dependency in your pom file — maybe the parent pom version. Then you type
…put your hands over your eyes, and gingerly press Enter.
You may see something like this:
[WARNING] Rule 0: org.apache.maven.plugins.enforcer.RequireUpperBoundDeps failed with message: Failed while enforcing RequireUpperBoundDeps. The error(s) are [ Require upper bound dependencies error for org.slf4j:slf4j-api:1.7.11 paths to dependency are: +-com.example.blah:blah-service:2.0.1-SNAPSHOT +-org.slf4j:slf4j-api:1.7.11 and +-com.example.blah:blah-service:2.0.1-SNAPSHOT +-com.netflix.hystrix:hystrix-core:1.5.4 +-org.slf4j:slf4j-api:1.7.11 (managed) < -- org.slf4j:slf4j-api:1.7.10 and +-com.example.blah:blah-service:2.0.1-SNAPSHOT +-com.example.framework:example-core:0.5.9-SNAPSHOT +-org.slf4j:slf4j-api:1.7.11 (managed) < -- org.slf4j:slf4j-api:1.7.7 and +-com.example.blah:blah-service:2.0.1-SNAPSHOT +-com.example.framework:example-core-data:0.5.9-SNAPSHOT +-org.slf4j:slf4j-api:1.7.11 (managed) < -- org.slf4j:slf4j-api:1.7.5 ...

Here’s how I did it, anyway:
sudo apt remove gnome-*
sudo apt install kubuntu-desktop
I’m on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
When I created a new class in IntelliJ IDEA, I’d get an automatic javadoc comment “Created by dmeyer on xx/xx/xx.” I wanted it to spell out my name…
To fix this, I went into File | Settings… | File and Code Templates | Includes | File Header and changed
