My software is more or less like Cthulhu. Normally dead and at the bottom of the sea, but occasionally stirring and throwing out a languid tentacle to drive men’s minds insane. (Or at least perturb a couple of more recklessly adventurous users.) However there’s been a bit more bubbling agitation down in R’lyeh recently. The […]
If you missed it, I launched a Fiverr Gig. Quick explanation.
There’s a lot of discussion going on around them. Eg. on Quora. I started writing a comment on a comment where Tim Bushell asks : why shouldn’t they be “red”, “green”, “blue”? ie. user-defined or neutral. But then felt it would be better here : Probably because Google have a database of thousands of email […]
Thanks to Bill Seitz I picked up on a Giles Bowkett post I’d missed a couple of months ago which compares the loosely coupled asynchronous style of development that companies like GitHub both promote and live, with the intensely coupled synchronous raids that occur in online game-worlds. Bowkett seems confused by the apparent contradictions between […]
A couple of tweaks to the Quora grabbing script. Makes it worth upgrading to a full GitHub project.
I love Quora. It’s a great site and community. But I started getting a bit concerned how much writing I was doing there which was (potentially) disappearing inside their garden and not part of the body of thinking I’m building up on ThoughtStorms (or even my blogs). Fortunately, I discovered Quora has an RSS feed […]
OK … not shouting much yet, but what with the relaunch of OPML and Fargo, there’s a bit of a GeekWeaver refresh going on. I put the code on GitHub and starting to clean it up, making it suitable for use … Watch this space …
Today I’m being driven crazy trying to print out FiloFax pages on an HP printer. Although I’ve created a PDF file of the right size, I have the right size piece of paper, and I’ve set up the paper-size in the print-driver, the printer is refusing to print because it detects a “paper size mismatch”. […]
I’m a couple of days into LinkBlogging using Fargo, (at Yelling At Strangers From The Sky) and I have to say, I’m getting into the swing and it’s great. If you keep the outline open in a tab, it’s about as fast and convenient to post to Fargo as posting a link to Plus or […]
Couple of quick notes : 1) I’m too dependent on Google. Unlike the case of Facebook, I can’t just cancel my account. Google is too deeply entwined with my life. But I am taking steps to disengage if not 100% at least a significant chunk. 2) I’m playing around a bit more with Dave Winer’s […]
