  1. Buying a Tripod

    One Man’s Quest for a Decent Tripod There are a lot of tripods out there! I had a difficult time choosing one, and I didn’t find as much help on-line as I thought I would. I’m fairly new to photography, so take my advice with a healthy helping of salt. This is the process I…

  2. Syndirella

    I am now (a touch cautiously) a big Syndirella fan. Finally a decent RSS reader for Windows. It imports and exports OPML and happily gobbled up my OPML export from

  3. And now for 3 totally unrelated topics…

    After measuring the size of my 15″ PowerBook, I think maybe the 17″ moster wouldn’t be too big after all. Maybe I’ll try to get the second rev when it is released – hopefully with a speed bump towards the end of this year. And in other news… if I never see Jim Grey again…

  4. Problems Using Hidden <IFRAME>s

    In the 1.5 version of tasks, I’m using a hidden iframe to go fetch a task’s sub-tasks when the user clicks on the plus (+) image. While implementing this, I ran across some unexpected problems. I hope someone out there has some insight as to why the problems were happening – perhaps workarounds or alternate…

  5. Take me out to the ball game…

    KNBR has been replaying Giants games for the last 2 weeks and I’m getting excited for baseball season. I feel very lucky to live in an area where there are good radio announcers. Jon Miller and Dave Neihaus may be the best in the business and the rest of the Giants broadcast crew is very…

  6. Keeper Lists

    I’m starting to get ready for my fantasy baseball leagues, my keeper list is due in about a week for the Delta Six league. I’ve got 10 guys I’d like to keep but only 9 spots: Todd Helton Jeff Kent Nomar Garciaparra Troy Glaus Bobby Abreu Gary Sheffield Ryan Klesko Pedro Martinez Mark Mulder Derek…

  7. tasks back in the Top Rated list

    Kinda cool, tasks is back in the top 10 rated PHP scripts at HotScripts.com after dropping out last week. #2 earlier today and down to #6 this evening… still nice to see it up there. This post is part of the project: Tasks Pro™. View the project timeline for more context on this post.

  8. tasks Progress, Documentation

    I haven’t gotten any bug reports yet from the tasks 1.5 demo and I haven’t gotten any requests to release it either. I think that both are due to the fact I haven’t publicised it’s existence very much as I’ve included some features I am frequently asked for in the new version. As mentioned earlier,…

  9. Around the web

    I wonder if or when this will really happen? I think I’d like to see this built into MySQL… it should make my recursive tasks queries much faster.

  10. What the heck…

    What the heck are the Sonics thinking? Now they have two of the best spot up 3-point shooters in the game with Ray Allen and Brent Barry (Rashard Lewis can knock it down too), but no one to create off the dribble, draw the defense and get them open shots. AND they get an underachieving…

  11. Phoenix

    I downloaded the latest nightly build of Phoenix – yummy new icons 🙂 Seems a bit snappier too, and doesn’t crash when picking from the auto-complete list anymore. Why didn’t I download a new build earlier?

  12. Basketball Article on TSN

    This article seems to back up what I was saying earlier this month. Baskeetball needs a minor league system or something that reduces initial player salaries and keeps these raw young players from taking up bench spots before they are ready to play. Each NBA team has players that they draft and then sit on…

  13. Safari Bugs

    I’ve posted 3 test cases for Safari bugs that will likely annoy Safari users who try the upcoming beta of tasks. Case #1: input form elements in content inserted using document.write() lose their value, um… value. Case #2: divs and tables not playing nicely together. This one I will work around for now. Case #3:…
