    Lance wins 7th Tour to end career on a high note New Camino Roadmap Joel on Software – Hitting the High Notes Samsung i730 Reviewed (Verdict: Everything In Its Right Place) – tempting, but: If you talk for 45 minutes per day, use the PDA functions several times a day, play games, surf the web…

  2. Tasks Pro™ 1.5.3 released

    I’ve released version 1.5.3 of Tasks Pro™. This is a maintenence release which fixed a couple of minor bugs in version 1.5.2: Upcoming tasks are shown as expected. The ‘inherit groups’ option now works properly whn using the parent task chooser. When a recurring task is activated, the e-mail properly includes the creator’s name. The…

  3. Moleskine at Barnes and Noble

    A month and a half ago, I gave up trying to find a Moleskine notebook locally. When I had lunch with Mike this week, he told me he got his at Barnes and Noble. Sure enough, I found one yesterday at the Barnes and Noble in downtown Denver.

  4. FeedLounge Review Notes

    Andrew West has put up a great review of FeedLounge. I especially like the way he’s seeing what we have now and imagining how more cool stuff can be added in the future. As I did with Chris Meller’s review, I wanted to clarify a couple of minor points: Due to the ajax nature of…

  5. Plugin Development

    When I first started writing plugins for b2 and later WordPress, I looked forward to each release – seeing people happy using my code. These days, I sort of dread releasing new versions of the plugins1 because 90% of what comes back to me are support requests that I have no bandwidth for. The growing…

  6. Popularity Contest 1.1

    I’ve released version 1.1 of my Popularity Contest plugin1 for WordPress. There is only one real change in this version, but it’s a handy one. You can now recount your comments and trackbacks at the push of a button (or load of a URL). This is handy for resetting popularity values if you’ve gotten comment…

  7. FeedLounge Investment

    I continue to get responses trickling in from last week’s FeedLounge newsletter mailing. Many of these responses include answers to our “what is a fair price for FeedLounge” question. All of the feedback is very valuable information for us to have – even the few people that responded with: I’d never pay for any online…

  8. BANG! (as predicted)

    A few months ago I had someone from the garage door service company come out and replace broken rollers on our garage door. He told me that those roller wheels ear out and need to be replaced every ~5 years or so, and the house is ~5 years old. I asked him what the next…

  9. E-mail Item Greasemonkey Script for FeedLounge

    By request, I’ve created another Greasemonkey script for FeedLounge. This one adds an ‘E-mail’ button which takes the information from the current item and sticks it in a mailto: URL. I also created a bookmarklet version for non-Firefox users. E-mail FeedLounge Item Greasemonkey Version Bookmarklet This post is part of the project: FeedLounge. View the…

  10. Popularity Contest = Best Code

    Well what do you know, my Popularity Contest plugin did win something. This post is part of the thread: Content Presentation – an ongoing story on this site.

  11. Around the web

    Camino 0.9a2 Released – best version yet. Belkin Flip for Mac Mini Yahoo! Search – Web Search – hmm, reminds me of something. I think this is the kind of interface Yahoo needs to do to be taken more seriously as a search player, but i think they’d be better off creating their own styled…

  12. FeedLounge Review Notes

    Chris Meller has written up a great review of FeedLounge. He does a great job explaining the way things work and I’m glad to see he thought the interface was easy to use. There are just a couple of things I wanted to follow up on from his review: If you’re on the Home page,…

  13. No Blackberry

    Eric got me all curious about switching to a Blackberry instead of to the Treo 650 (or 700 or whatever comes next). I called Sprint today to find out about my options and was told that my “unlimited vision” data doesn’t cover the Blackberry. You have to add an additional $45/month plan just for the…
