thom: travelling? I was in Sydney
for ~6 months, went
to Melbourne for two weeks, stayed in Byron for 3 days, then
Brisbane for 7 weeks... Now I'm off back to Sydney... Some
I can top that. Thailand, 3 weeks, Melbourne, er, 4
;). I am
planning to get moving again soon though, otherwise my
Certification will be rendered null and void. Also I'll be
pissed off if I don't get to try out my new diving sk1llz on
Barrier Reef while I'm over here.
gary: Saw Chris Raettig's
the other day and
was impressed; his rationale for an email based journal is
I use a mail-based system to update taint.org, my
(other) blog. It works nicely -- the main point was to see
how useful WebMake would be for
blogging -- but I'm now
reverting to using Advogato for diary stuff, keeping
taint.org for interesting
newsy snippets. Go figure. I reckon it's because
Advogato's more of a
diary-based community, whereas taint.org is kinda out on its
own, and just
doesn't seem like a good place to keep a proper journal.
ask: Jabber [..] Maybe it's
crappy clients, but
it doesn't seem stable enough to run anything too critical on.
That's the same feeling I got about 6 months ago. :(
hope it polishes
up some time soon. Open source != crappy packaging!
Oh -- another new hack I forgot to mention, which someone
might find useful. MailMan-to-RSS, a little
script (and a vaguely nice-looking demo site) which scrapes
MailMan list archives and creates an RSS feed of the last 10
posted messages. Handy for following lists using any of the
various portal systems (and Evolution!) that support RSS.
BTW as the page sez, if you would like to see a list
RSS-ized, and don't have a server to host the RSS on, mail
me and I'd be
happy to add it to the scraped list on taint.org.
