My notepad for World Series Game 3. Go Giants!
I added the validator to my RSS Resources directory.
Also got a very supportive message from Mena Trott re the post below. Thanks! I think we're co-creating the most exciting market in the software business today.
Okay, my project for today is to rewrite my weblog outliner so it works smoothly with Movable Type, so I can blog the World Series game tonight in the most natural way, just typing and saving, with comments and trackback. It'll be a Ben and Mena Technology Expo night. So far so good! I have the outliner saving, although the formatting is really sucky. It'll be less sucky by tonight. Adam Curry emails to remind me that he wants this to work with Radio and Manila. Of course of course. But first I want to make it work with Movable Type. Everyone will expect that it will work with our own blogging stuff. The chance to blow people's minds is to show it working through the open interface of a competitor's product. This is how we show web services working, as they were always supposed to, eliminating lock-in, allowing us to enhance each others' products, and to take the fear out of serving our customers. The BigCo's don't get this, they patent stuff and have powwow's among execs who have no idea what the software is used for. Heh. In the meantime us little folk are building a market. How about that.
7/6/01: "Who wants to be locked in the trunk today?"
4/4/01: "There is a difference between riding in the car and being stuffed in the trunk."
7/27/01: "Who wants to help Bill build another sub-campus in Redmond?"
Thomas Boswell: "It's possible, oddsmakers be darned, that these are the best teams in their leagues, not merely underdogs who need Rally Monkeys."
Chuck Shotton: "The flaws in Don's argument are manifold."
I'm testing the new RSS Validator from Mark Pilgrim, Sam Ruby and Bill Kearney.
The following feeds validate: Scripting News, Dave's Handsome Radio Blog. One of my feeds did not validate, I don't want to say which one, but when I went to read the spec, the validator was right! Yay.
The announcement is on Mark Pilgrim's weblog.
The static server came back online about 1:30AM. There was probably some dust on the connectors between the disk and the motherboard.
The other bit of hardware that went down at the same time (Praise Murphy!) was the motherboard of the oldest computer in the cage, Superhonker, a dual processor 550 MHz machine. It was far from the fastest, yet it had the name of honor, because it was the oldest of the honkers. Thanks for serving us so well for so long.
The replacement for Superhonker came online about 4:20AM, a little over an hour before I'm writing this.
