A picture named hat.jpgReminder: The second Berkeley Blogger's Dinner is Thursday at 7PM. We have room for lots more people this time. If you're going to be there, please post a note, let the networking begin now. You don't have to be a blogger to come, people from Berkeley and from the University are especialy welcome, as are people from the Yahoo office, which is just a couple of blocks away. We make these inclusive, the more the merrier, let's have fun and all that. Bring someone with. It's around the corner from BART, so we're an easy 20 minutes from downtown San Francisco.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Dan MacTough is looking for help with the Mac version of the OPML Editor serving on port 80. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Nathan Nutter explains how to export OPML for your podcasts from iTunes. I tried, it works! Via Jon UdellPermanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named check.gifThis time Apple got it right. Their OPML is exactly what I wanted them to export. It should be compatible with every reader and aggregator and directory browser out there. As you can see from the screen shot the OPML Editor likes it. Schwinnng. Since I'm critical when they mess up one of my formats, I gotta say this time --> you guys did good. If I were down in Cupertino today I'd take you all out for a Starbucks and ask what's coming down the pike. Whoever did this should be given the keys to XML at Apple. Bravo!! Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Steven Cohen at PubSub introduces a new Comics reading list. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Rex Hammock: "As long as Mick Jagger, someone we can remember from elementary school, is still skinny and bouncing around the stage in front of screaming fans, then we can't be that old." It doesn't work. Jagger looks better than I do, and I'm 11 years younger than he.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Is it me? Permanent link to this item in the archive.

It's pretty bad when a trusted tool starts misbehaving, and it's worse when you pay $0 for it and don't have a phone number to call. You wonder if the problem is on your end, if you're the only one experiencing it. When it's email you wonder if you're missing something. How would you know?

This time it's Gmail, Google's free email system, the one I use. I wonder why I chose to do that. It just works so well. It just worked so well. For the last couple of days it's been getting slower and slower, on a weekend. I wonder what it's going to be like as the work-week gets underway.

I don't do the app builds Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named opmlicon.jpgIt's been a long time since I was the one who did the app builds for the kernel that I develop all my software on. Over the weekend we did another build, the first since July, and released the result so adventurous users could test it. At first it was remarkable how much faster the new build seemed. I wasn't sure it was real. Now a couple of days into it I'm sure it is. Much faster. This build was done by Andre Radke, who used to work at UserLand -- he knows what he's doing. I love working with Andre, even for a few days. We used to joke that he was our German Engineering Department (Andre lives in Germany). Like BMW. Well, this build performs like you think it should. I can't wait to install it on my servers.

I'm not the weather guy Permanent link to this item in the archive.

That would be god, and he sure has been dealing us some fine days here in California. Warm, clear and sunny. The clear sunshine you get only in California. Very nice. Good work, and thanks!

Too bad for Seattle Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Good thing Pittsburgh won the SuperBowl yesterday. I don't know anyone in Pittsburgh, but I know lots of people in Seattle. If Seattle had won they would have been insufferable. We got off easy.
