Good morning sports fans!
Live from Keystone, via 802.11b, the high bandwidth version of Scripting News.
Thunderstorms all day yesterday. Really extravagant weather.
We had big golfball sized hail yesterday.
Yeah it was a HailStorm.
Jabber to Blogger
Today we got Jabber talking to Blogger over XML-RPC.
There will be a lot more information about this but in the meantime here's the Blogger site that we were posting to through Jabber instant messaging.
Realtime blog Doc Jabber fit
At 11:20AM Doc Searls is giving a slide presentation at JabberCon. Maybe I'll realtime blog it?
"Metaphor is everywhere, even in bullshit."
"A brand is this idea we got from the cattle industry."
News from JabberCon
Craig Burton has pics from the first day.
We're working on a Jabber-to-XML-RPC project. Murphy-willing we should be able to demo it at 2PM today (Mountain Time).
A picture of Jeremie and me working out the details of the project. And here's the block diagram. This was done before the afternoon hailstorm.
I'm sitting next to Doc right now while Jeremie O'Jabber is giving his State of the Bulb presentation.
Sorry Doc, we run a PG-rated blog. (Most of the time.)
On a break, Peter Bryant from InfoPop asked for a pointer to our distributed membership and preferences spec from 1999. Here it is Peter.
Lance is back. Scoble is back.
One year ago today we asked What is RDF?
Kvetchy mail servers
I have a really fast 802.11b connection here at JabberCOn, and I can receive email but can't send it. My mail server doesn't allow mail coming from the IP address my machine is using now, and I've tried a bunch of other servers, but they won't accept my email address. This is for a good cause, spam elimination, but makes it impossible to move around. But there must be a workaround because other people in the room are able to send mail.
Postscript: Craig Burton solved the probleme. He let me use his mail server. Here's the trick. His server requires a logon. So the spammers can't get through that. And he can use it where ever he is. I want to get the UserLand mail server to work this way.
Brian Mulvaney: "Another solution is to run a SMTP process locally. I use a tiny freeware mail server from Argosoft because I'm on the road a lot, connecting from different networks. All you need to do to configure it is to give it the name of a DNS server (any reliable one should do) and turn on relaying. You then set your email client to send mail to the local machine (127.0.0.1). That's it. It's kind of fun to watch the log for the mail server as it makes connections and gets the mail out. I don't leave it running for long periods of time if I'm on a fixed IP address because of the open relay, but that's generally not an issue when I'm on the road."
Kvetch: "To complain persistently and whiningly."
