It's even worse than it appears..
When I'm in a groove programming, I find myself saying out loud, "perfect" and "thank you" regularly. When I'm paying attention I can hear myself doing it. #
Now that I have FeedLand running reliably, I am reading more of the few bloggers I've found that are blogging regularly. That includes Manton Reece, who I know from early Frontier days. One of our best developers, and a steady fellow, which was much appreciated. I know he's a sports fan too, living in Texas he follows the San Antonio Spurs, which is of course a legendary team. I am, as you know, a Knicks fan. But I have to say, until the Mets are finished, and probably a few weeks after that, I'm focused only on baseball. I'm very modal with my sports. I'm either in or not. I can't love two teams at the same time. It's just who I am. Anyway, Manton has written a book about microblogging and he runs a service called which hosts blogs, running his software. I feel that his blog and my new reading software have brought us closer. And I look forward to reading his book. #
Comments and questions re FeedLand continue to be welcome. #
BTW, here's my list of bloggers. But most of them aren't updating. I hope to add to this list, to find bloggers who are writing about interesting stuff with good web energy. #
For all the ups and downs the Mets ended the season with exactly the same record as the Braves, 101 wins and 61 losses. The only reason the Mets are in the wild card and the Braves get to wait for the next round, is that they won one more game against the Mets this year than they lost. It's like the game of inches Al Pacino's character rants about in Any Given Sunday. Life is made of inches. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
