I gave up midway on A feast for Crows and started reading Sundiver by David Brin. Time to make a trip down to the Library to pick up some books for the winter break. Any recommendations?

ibuzz

Thursday, November 17th, 2005

Boingboing had a post yesterday about the iBuzz. I found it quite funny. N‘s wife says that this could be very unfortunate if the song finishes before you do, especially if the next song on your playlist isn’t the right tempo. On the otherhand, it could start a very interesting subculture where people recommend “good” [...]

Stop the presses

Thursday, November 10th, 2005

A shell script I wrote earlier got mentioned in the December issue of Macworld. It is hard to find the mention, but it is there. I wrote the script to move my feeds from Safari RSS to Bloglines. Last month, I upgraded the shell script to an Automator action, so you do not need to [...]

Comments

Monday, November 7th, 2005

Apoorva made me put in a preview function so that you can preview your comments before you submit them. It is so easy to add functionality to a wordpress plugin. I downloaded and installed the Live Comment Preview plugin. I also stumbled across the Get Recent Comments plugin. This one shows recent comments and trackbacks [...]
