Selenium redux

When I asked about the Selenium web testing framework, the only reply I got was from one of the authors, Jason Huggins. He says the software works really well -- now I have to decide whether or not to believe him ;). He says it's getting some use in Plone-world, though, and Grig is going to try it out & (hopefully) let me know.

Bret Pettichord wrote a nice entry on Selenium, too, so maybe I should believe Jason...

Rewriting Python from scratch: bad.

Language adoption by Apple

Paul Snively writes a longish e-mail to the OCaml mailing list about Apple's history with language research. Interesting stuff.

The Dial-Up Divide

Adam Rifkin writes on weblications in his Deeply Intertwingled blog. One thing that caught my eye was his description of Google Suggest's bandwidth usage: every time you hit a key, approx ~1 kb of data is transmitted from the Google server to you. I think this nicely illustrates the divide between dial-up and broadband: how well do you think this will work on dialup? ;)

Titus Is Testing Unicode Scriptmanagement

ObGoogle: found this. In the German, "Thesaurus Indogermanischer Text- und Sprachmaterialien". (No, that's not a real translation; it means "Thesaurus of Indogermanic Texts and Language Materials", or somesuch.)

Today's Resolution

I will not get spittingly furious at the incompetent, obtuse, inane, idiotic, dopey, lamebrained, thick, asinine, boorish, witless, half-baked, feeble-minded or doltish managerial practices of professors. At least not more than once a day.
