My moment of zen of today

Calling this work-safe depends a lot on where you work :)… Who said perl can’t be fun? Thank you gav.

Longs periods of silence

I really hate CD tracks that have long periods of silence. Case in point: “Beyond The Sea” from the Swing When You’re Winning by Robbie Williams. The music lasts for 4:30 minutes, and then you have this loooooong void, until 25:23 where we have small sound clips of the backstage. Every time this song comes up in iTunes, I thing that it stopped playing and press the play button again, only is the pause button now… Arrggghh…

Content removed

I removed this content because it talked about software that is still in beta. I was not aware of any confidentiality clauses associated with the beta testing. If I where I would not post information regarding it. I like the software this developer is doing, I'm a paying customer, and I intend to keep paying him for future versions. My intent was only to give some personal opinions about the software.

Kiwi

I really don’t know what Kiwi is. Well, I know it’s a project I’ve been working on and off for quite sometime now. But if you ask me what it is, well, it’s difficult to say. Kiwi is a Wiki-style system with rich meta-data, with a object-oriented full-text search back-end. It also has some blog-like features. And you can also syndicate it’s changes. You would write nodes or pages with a language wiki-style (actually the parser is pretty extendable, so the actual format could be changed easily).

SAF

SAF is a temporary name for one of my projects. I'm a big fan of event-driven programming, usually found in GUI programming. I always wanted to use it in systems or application programming. The idea behind SAF is this: you take a system or application and split into several modules. Each module exports a specific API. The API is then implemented by each module as a event thats sent to a channel.

Modified MT 3.0 templates

The default templates that come with MT 3.0 are almost OK. I have two pet peeves: first, there is no full posts rss feed; and second, the individual archive template lacks the right navigation bar of the main index template. I want the first one because it’s my preferred feed type. Almost all my feeds that I subscribe in NetNewsWire are full posts. To solve that, I added a new index template, named rss-full.
