DaveNet: P2P We Hardly Knew Ye.

SF Chronicle: "Cisco Systems, the second-most valuable company in America, paid no federal income taxes for its latest fiscal year thanks to a little-known corporate tax break on employee stock options."

Searching for We Hardly Knew Ye on Google yields some interesting results. It's a loving way to say goodbye.

David Coursey got it right about Java in May 1997.

Of course wehardlyknewye.com is not taken.

What is Kool-Aid?

NY Daily News: "One time New Yorker, Robert Bierman, 40, roots for Mets at San Francisco stadium yesterday. His son Alex, 5, is for some other transplanted New Yorkers -- his home team Giants." Note the NY point of view. Very arrogant. Makes me homesick!

Brent Simmons posts some tips for Radio UserLand people who edit Manila sites. We're going to move more in this direction.

Survey: Yesterday we released a redesign of Weblogs.Com. We'd like to know if it works in your browser.

Luke Tymowski: "The new Weblogs.Com site looks good in IE5, Mozilla, w3m, and Lynx. Itís identical in IE5 and Mozilla, which it should be."

NY Times: Why the Cardinals Could Be Trouble. Sorry dude, having a clear-channel radio station and being the southern-most and western-most team for a few years means nothing. However there is an interesting subtext in the piece, the idea that Mets fans might prefer a subway series. I find the idea dangerous. I'd prefer not to risk it. Bring on the Mariners.

But the Cardinals might have a philsophy after all. "I'm from Missouri," is a great one-liner. Do you know what it means?

Brent also teases us. Which site is the one you hate the most? You have to tell us! Or at least run a survey.

Brent has his irritant, I have my own.

Great stuff on Doc's weblog. He says he'd probably put some money in Lynne's tipjar. But what if there are 8,000 sites that have tipjars. How much would you put in which ones?

Hypothetically, if I point to a piece on Lynne's site, and as a result she gets a tip, should I get a piece of that?

Inc: Bananas, My Brand, and Me. "This brand thing is weird," she says. "I'm still getting used to it."
