DaveNet: Automated Deep Linking. "There's something new going on, and it touches on some sensitive issues like who owns your home page -- you or the web?"
ZDNN: "Microsoft blamed an evil genius for its Hotmail security goof, but the company’s spin may be the only crime."
Zope 2.0 shipped today, includes XML-RPC support.
Matt Daw has the GetStateName demo app working in Zope.
Late Night Software: XML Tools for AppleScript.
Also from Late Night: WatchNews, a FaceSpan app that reads our XMLized news and displays it in a window. Nice!
Cal Law: Congress Does a Database Dance. "The fight over a database copyright bill began in 1996 when the European Union adopted a directive that prohibits a second-generation publisher from extracting a substantial part of a first-generation database."
News.Com: Will Web publishers get lost in space? "How are mainstream consumers going to find material they like in a churning sea of free expression?"
RegEx: Xanadu from the Wilderness. "Xanadu will receive a lot of attention over the next few months. It promises to be an excellent demonstration of how Python fares in a high-performance, large-scale, complex role that many programmers believe is reserved for C++ and Java."
IETF: MSN Messenger Protocol 1.0. "This document describes the syntax and semantics of the MSN Messenger Protocol, the communication protocol running between MSN Messenger Service 1.0 clients and servers."
8/4/99: Why Should AOL Open Up? "This time around Microsoft wants to force AOL to open up their Instant Messaging service -- they want to take their share of Instant Messaging without bursting any bubbles! Amazing chutzpah. By complaining in a confusing way they hope to force AOL to burst their *own* bubble. It's as if, playing chess, you run a press release saying your opponent should give up their queen, and somehow you expect this to happen?"
MacWorld: Seybold Photo Gallery.
Interesting diversion. We've put Top-50 pages on several of our sites. The main DG, DaveNet, Frontier, and DocServer. When reading these lists you can see the presence of search engines. They move articles about Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak and Jean-Louis Gassee up to the top. And docs about base64 encoding. And the Dancing Hamsters!
LinuxCare: Advanced Data Recovery Techniques.
MacCentral: AppleScript over IP. What is it about? My theory.. Apple has done a tunneling protocol that allows AppleTalk to move over TCP-IP. The AppleScript connection comes for free, because the Apple Event Manager works over AppleTalk. It's just a theory.
Since 1992, the University of Melbourne ARNS packages have been providing the ability to connect remote clients to AppleTalk services by creating personal AppleTalk tunnels over the IP Internet.
Ask Tog: Avoiding Frequent Flier Syndrome. "Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.."
Michael Tutty: "I've been working for a while on an XML over HTTP remote objects system. After checking things out here, it seems very similar to what I'm doing."
