I've been playing with "Rojo":http://rojo.com for about a day. I have been exploring alternatives to "Bloglines":http://bloglines.com for a while now, and this one looks promising. Basically, I need online feedreaders with tagging. And Bloglines doesn't seem to be offering that anytime soon.
Read more after the jump.
The good news broke this morning, via an e-mail from Jeff Veen and then "an announcement":http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2006/02/here-comes-measure-map.html on the official Google blog. "Measure Map":http://measuremap.com is now part of the G empire.
The news is a bit surprising to me, because Measure Map is a very young service, unlike "Urchin.":http://www.urchin.com/ But it's quick, simple, blog centric, and doing many things right. How (or if) it will be combined with Urchin is anybody's guess.
On a side note, according to Measure Map the number of visitors to ichris.ws was an all-time low on Valentine's day. Only 85 unique visitors. The number reflects very well on _you,_ my readers. :)
This newly released theme by Ken Collins at "MetaSkills.net":http://www.metaskills.net/ showcased what a good theme can do in Drupal, integrating well with many popular modules (The first I have seen) and incorporating many original contributions to the Drupal world, e.g. stylesheet switcher.
I think I can learn a lot from studying this.
*Gaim* 2.0 Beta 1 -> "Beta 2":http://gaim.sourceforge.net/
* more streamlined UI
* faster sign in (for MSN network, anyway)
* Still no MSN personalized status message. :(
*Firefox* 1.5.0 -> "184.108.40.206":http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/releases/220.127.116.11.html
* didn't noticed anythings
* The download size is only 751 kB. (via automatic update) I didn't know they have incremental upgrade! This is cool.
* Official release note lists improved stability, security enhancements, and memory leaks fix as the highlight. This can only be good.
Around 1999, online storage services like Xdrive were the next big thing. Now they are coming back, riding on the web2.0 wave. TechCrunch "reviewed":http://feeds.feedburner.com/Techcrunch?m=581 13 of them. From a quick glance, I think I'll testdrive "Omnidrive,":http://www.omnidrive.com/ "Xdrive,":http://www.xdrive.com/ and "Box.net":http://www.box.net/ sometimes this week.
Drupal "4.7 Beta 4":http://drupal.org/drupal-4.7.0-beta4 was just released, and the "patch":http://drupal.org/node/40755 to make comment block themable is included. This means I should be able to make Drupal's "K2 port":http://ichris.ws/node/968 imitate the original look. (which uses ordered list)
Now, if only there is more than 24 hrs a day.
I've never own a "Mac,":http://www.apple.com/hardware/ thus never tried "quicksilver.":http://quicksilver.blacktree.com/ I've heard good things about it, though. "Colibri":http://colibri.leetspeak.org/ is supposed to serve similar needs on a windows box, and I'm lovin' it.
