MacWEEK: UserLand Sets MacBird Free. "Open-source efforts took a step forward this week with UserLand Software Inc.'s decision to release the source code for MacBird, the company's venerable software for creating pop-up menus, radio buttons and other user-interface elements within scripts." Venerable!
Dictionary.Com defines venerable: "Commanding respect by virtue of age, dignity, character, or position." Perfecto!
DaveNet: Davos Newbies. "It seems that in one way or another, all the really cool Manila sites are for newbies."
Frontier 6.1.1. "Most of the changes are features/fixes for Manila, including support for multiple news days on the home page, enhanced appearance customization, and the ability to download Manila sites."
In 6.1.1 when Frontier saves all the open databases every minute, it actually saves *all* the open databases.
LinuxNewbies at EditThisPage.Com. Wow!
NY Times: "You must sleep sometime between lunch and dinner, and no halfway measures. Take off your clothes and get into bed. That's what I always do." Amen!
I sent an email to Steve Wozniak asking for his support for MacBird. Woz is being interviewed by SlashDot on Friday.
Scoop! Tomorrow Microsoft will announce that they will have Mac OS X versions of MSIE, Outlook Express and Office. What did Apple give them in return?
I registered MacBird with SourceForge. Interesting that they didn't have a category for user interface design tools. It's a very Unix-centered world over there. Let's change that!

About Adult is a weblog about the online adult industry.
Jason Levine's Manila site now reports referers so he (and we) can quickly find out who's pointing to his site. Jason has his own copy of Frontier running his site, so he can add features like this one.
Just for fun I added a page to Weblog Monitor that shows me a list of weblogs that point to userland.com.
Another site that's pushing the envelope on Manila site design. Brent, let's study this site. He's asking good questions. Check out how he does the membership box.
Brad Pettit posted a Zip version of the MacBird source.
Robert Woodhead: "I often do weird little fun projects over the new year's holiday. This year I decided to ask the question 'what short and or cool domain names are still available?' To answer it, I wrote a silly little robot and set it to work."
Detroit News: Mac OS 9 has plenty of flaws, readers say.
DaveNet 1999 in Review. "Thanks to Luke Tymowski, Jeff Shelton, Sam Devore, Eric Soroos and Karl Martino for contributing to the review site."
More new stuff on Davos Newbies. "If you wear a suit (and most do, except for the Silicon Valley crowd), you annoyingly have to carry shoes in a bag and then change in the Congress Centre."
Tom Briscoe's Y2K cartoon expresses a sentiment similar to last night's DaveNet.
