Today is the three-year anniversary of Scripting News.
We had a multi-hour PacBell-caused outage this afternoon and evening. Back at work shortly after midnight Pacific, the connection is back up. The new ballpark, Pacific Bell Stadium, is great, I wish I could say the same for their T1 service.
For the first few hours of 4/1/00, I had lots of April Fool's stuff here. But I got to work and wanted to do something more interesting, so I moved the weird stuff here.
Two new Manila sites on the air today. Tim O'Reilly has a new weblog, with two new Tim-authored articles; and WorldLink, the magazine of the World Economic Forum (the Davos people) is now running on our Exodus server. Welcome!
WorldLink is more than a weblog. The full text of the current issue is on the web and all back issues are indexed in the search engine. There's a discussion group and email bulletins. As far as I know this is the first print pub to transition to the web through Manila.
One problem remains to be solved for WorldLink, since it's a UK publication, it won't do to have the times expressed in Pacific. This is forcing an overhaul (a good one) in Manila that will allow each site to specify its home timezone.
Baseball tonight. I'm going to the Giants-Yankees exhibition game at the new ballpark in SF with Marc Canter, Dave Jacobs, Jimmi Johnson. Pics tomorrow for sure.

popo.at and weblogs.com. "I am not a designer. It won't help you if I gave you a gif or something. I could not do it. I can tell you what I like and what I don't like, but even this is rather fuzzy."
OK, let's try to de-fuzz this. Believe it or not, I am not the bottleneck in a redesign of weblogs.com. I just documented the macros that make the site work. Key point, any site hosted on weblogs.com can become a portal for the data that the harvester gathers.
93 sites on Weblogs.Com. No joke!
Andre just left for Chermany. The two-week onsite is officially over! I'm sad, but also glad.
It's even worse than it appears!
