Last night I really came down with just the blahs. About 4pm I hit the “I’m -really- beat” wall, after a pretty intense day of coding, and I just couldn’t get motivated to get going again.
So in playing around with RSS aggregators, I came across a tool that presents RSS feed information in the form of an NNTP connection. The package is called, unimaginatively NNTP//RSS.
Okay, this is pretty cool. If you’re into the old Scott Adams adventures, and know your Shakespeare, check this out. It takes a few moments to load… Shakespearian Adventure
Wow, what an interesting evening. Tonight Catya, (and I don’t know everyone elses LJ link, ya’ll can deal) Ted, Zach, Sarah and I all went into Cambridge for dinner, in prep for going drumming later on.
Ah, the joys of being your own sysadmin. I guess. For the last 2 years, I’ve been doing probably 90% of my desktop work on Windows based systems. Unfortunately Intuit, my former employer, is a very strong Windows shop, and even though they were mostly okay with me running Linux on my desktop machine, theRead More
A Livejournal Client that plugs right into your Mozilla installation via the Tools menu. Briefly – This sucker’s neat. It works, it’s small, it’s always there, and Just Plain Works.
So special thanks to Jasra for helping out with the syndicated feed, folks at Livejournal can now see my postings coming from Planet Geek!. For LJ folks, just add the user ‘shayde_weblog’ to your friends list, and voila!
Slashdot, truly the geek mecca-point, has been down for the last 15 minutes or so. This is an UNHEARD of occasion. Truly epic.
Mr. Praline: ‘Ello, I wish to register a complaint. Owner: We’re closin’ for lunch. Mr. Praline: Never mind that, my lad. I wish to complain about this candidate what I supported not half an hour ago from this very website! Owner: Oh yes, the, uh, Howard Dean…What’s,uh…What’s wrong with em? Mr. Praline: I’ll tell youRead More
I’ve been invited to give a nice talk on LTSP at the Boston Linux Users group in April. Pretty spiffin. Folks should try and come to it, I love seeding an audience with friends and supporters 🙂 Here’s the actual entry for the talk.
Cows with guns!
Yoinkin yimminies. This week (Thu and Fri) I was not at Intuit, working on my own things at home. A lot of setup and prep work, but I’ve gotten things done that have really been just -hanging- around for ages.
One of the clients I’ve been trying to land for Stonekeep just called me and said “the backer is really hot on using your system, can we change a few things and come up with a way to do this?” – and what they’re asking for is reasonable. One more client. And not a freeRead More
I can’t get the LJ Crosspost plugin to work in Moveable Type, so I’m flat out giving up on it right now. Chip really isnt’ answering mail, and I don’t have time to dig into his code and find out what’s working and what isn’t. Maybe when I have Time [tm] [reg us pat off]Read More
So, if all goes well, and I have all the stuff installed right, this entry will show up on LIveJournal as well as on my blog. So, lets give it a shot…
