Something really weird. is redirecting to scripting.comPermanent link to this item in the archive.

That's not what's actually happening. It's framing, which is where lived when I was running it (and paying for its upkeep and bandwidth, btw, not that they gave me any stock for helping them start up). I redirected to after they moved it to their own servers. I guess somehow has reverted to its original content, it's an error, not a gift (although it occurred to me that Ron & Adam might want to square up, no such luck). Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Roger Strickland: "I'm guessing the Podsafe Music Network is what Kleiner Perkins and Sequoia are really interested in growing." If that's it, then I'd fully support it, as long as they don't replace one set of ripoff deals with artists with another set.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

What Rex Hammock Said: "Let me tell you about the time in 1996 when I asked a group of 300 business owners to raise their hands if they had their e-mail addresses printed on their business card. Less than ten did. I guess from that research, I could have assumed that e-mail was not catching on with people who run businesses." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

On this day three years ago: "Thanks to the gang at O'Reilly for being such good friends." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named flowers.gifUpdate: Still walking a consistent 40 minutes a day, still not smoking. Haven't lost all the weight I'm supposed to lose, but I feel reasonably well, and my numbers are decent. Sleeping at high altitude is, as always, pretty strange, the dreams are vivid, it's hard to get to sleep and stay asleep. Today it's a bit overcast and downright cold. Wearing a sweater in the middle of August. Three years later, we're back in a cold war with the O'Reilly people, I'm not sure what changed, but it was still nice to get the get well card and flowers from them, they were the only ones in the software industry that paused that way. I think it's probably because they lost one of their own to heart disease, and wish their guy had survived it, as I did. I still feel gratitude three years later. Permanent link to this item in the archive.
