  1. alexking.org News is RSS Enabled

    I’ve created a valid RSS feed for my site news. If you want to know when I post a new article, update my tasks or gallery (photos) software, post a new b2 hack or something else newsworthy, you’re welcome to subscribe. The URL: https://alexking.org/rss.php. Auto-discovery should work too.

  2. Soybo 1.0

    SoyBo has been released! I’ve seen this in action and it is very cool. It is the Sony Ericsson Clicker without needing a Sony Ericsson phone, it is remote access to your Mac from any device, it is a "good thing". Like Konfabulator, it is what you want it to be…

  3. A Little b2 Hack – tidakada.com?

    I’ve posted a couple lines of code I added to b2 that make the comment notification email from the comment poster’s email address if they provided one. I went to post the code in the b2 forums at tidakada.com and the site is gone… 😕

  4. TiVo vs. ReplayTV

    Several people told me I should get ReplayTV instead of TiVo. It had a more advanced feature set, didn’t have monthly fees, seemed like a better deal. I was steadfast that the TiVo was the right choice, and this is why. TiVo got the brand mind-share just like Kleenex, Xerox and Post-Its. Also the lawsuit…

  5. Around the web

    I love reading discussions like this on usability. Here is some reading on "Trackbacks", a feature of many blogs that lots of people (myself included) don’t fully understand: here and here. Here is a Palm RSS reader. It requires the mini Java VM. Here is a pretty comprehensive list of RSS readers. You M$ Outlook…

  6. Capers

    If you live in the bay area, do yourself a favor and go to Capers in Campbell for a meal. We discovered the restaurant a year or so ago when we played softball with one of the owners. Ever time we’ve been there the food, service and atmosphere have been excellent. We had a great…

  7. More War Stuff

    So to follow up on Greg‘s comments regarding my stance on the war. I guess I’m somewhere on the fence. My problem with our country’s actions is not so much that we are going after Saddam Hussein, but the way we’ve done it with little regard for the UN or world opinion and what I…

  8. Opening Day!!!

    The Rangers and Angels kick off the season tonight, the game is on ESPN. I’m so glad it’s baseball season again! 😀

  9. Baseball

    Baseball fans should read this excerpt. When Bob Costas’ book Fair Ball came out, I got the audio version and listened to it on my way to and from work. It is a very well thought out and clearly presented plan for how to save baseball. The whole book is great and I gained a…

  10. Go Ed!

    Ed and the West Wing are my two favorite TV shows. I watch them each week religously (with a little help from TiVo) and I was pissed that they moved Ed to Friday night wrecking my weekly wednesday watching habits. That said, I loved the ending of tonight’s episode… the romantic triangle is back, but…

  11. tasks 1.5 b3

    I’ve put up beta 3 of tasks 1.5. This has a bug fix for the SQL install script (the only bug reported in beta 1 or beta 2) and a couple of small new features. I’ve added the 10 most recently modified tasks to the bottom of the jump to list – selecting one of…

  12. Mac vs. PC

    Eric posted the Mac vs. PC speed results links I sent him. I have to take exception with his conclusion that "The Mac is ‘easier’ to use, and it is really pretty, and we don’t use it because it’s fast. That much is clear." The tests clearly show the PC is faster in pure processing…
