MacBird is the top item on Wide Open News. Thanks!
Lawrence Lee reports that Amazon has been issued another patent. Oy, another net outage to route around. We have to find a net bookseller that will swear off patents.
One from the "Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words" dept.
I just noticed that EditThisPage.Com gets more hits than Scripting News. Something's working!
SlashDot's interview with Steve Wozniak.
One way to see that your ass is too small.
Survey: EditThisPage.Com performance.
We installed a test version of Frontier on EditThisPage.Com in the middle of last night. We're doing this really carefully. We're also scientifically measuring performance, and measuring what matters. How does it perform at doing the things people do a lot? Amazingly, our tool, which we will release in source, says there is a greater than 400 percent boost in performance. What used to take a second, now takes a quarter of a second. If you have a good net connection to our network, you should be able to feel this improvement as you work on your EditThisPage.Com site. We can see it on our end.
A note of gratitude is due to Bob Bierman, who single-handedly engineered this new performance. Not only is a major bottleneck out of the kernel, but it runs flawlessly. Thanks Bob!
Lynn Kavanagh is looking for an acting job. She could play the part of Kim Polese in "Java, The Movie."

Thanks to Swiss-Image I now have a huge number of journalist-quality Davos photos, with captions.
Here's a beautiful picture of Davos, nestled in the Swiss Alps.
All the pictures are now on the Davos site. It's given me lots of ideas on how to improve this part of Manila. (That's part of the reason I'm doing it.)
The Swiss-Image site is in German! Now I know how you guys feel when you read our English stufff. They also have instructions in English. And different instructions if you're on a Mac or PC. How many ways can we divide??
Fezbox is "the first (and only!) web site that will allow you to configure and install an operating system onto a computer. It is currently geared towards Red Hat Linux, although we hope to support other flavours of Linux in the near future."
More baby pictures on Scott Hanson's site, including a German birth certificate, that looks more like a prescription, according to Scott.
Apparently it is possible to sign up for Apple's iTools site even if you aren't a Mac OS 9 user. Is this a bug or a feature?
