I've been playing with "Rojo": for about a day. I have been exploring alternatives to "Bloglines": 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.

Measure Map bought by Google

The good news broke this morning, via an e-mail from Jeff Veen and then "an announcement": on the official Google blog. "Measure Map": 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.": 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 was an all-time low on Valentine's day. Only 85 unique visitors. The number reflects very well on _you,_ my readers. :)

Valentine's day visitors


What do you get when you cross good cooks, crisp photographs, and beautiful web design?

You get "delicious:days.":

This is one of my new favorite blogs, and nominee for this year's "bloggies.":

30 Boxes & coComment

2 beta invitations landed on my inbox this morning:

* "30 Boxes": _"will be to calendars what GMail was to Email",_ to quote "Om Malik":
* "coComment": Track all your comments across the blogosphere

Oh joy.

Meta Theme for Drupal

"Meta Theme": is to "Drupal": what "K2": is to "WordPress.":

This newly released theme by Ken Collins at "": 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.

2 Upgrades

*Gaim* 2.0 Beta 1 -> "Beta 2":

* more streamlined UI
* faster sign in (for MSN network, anyway)
* Still no MSN personalized status message. :(

*Firefox* 1.5.0 -> "":

* 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.

Online Storage Review at TechCrunch

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": 13 of them. From a quick glance, I think I'll testdrive "Omnidrive,": "Xdrive,": and "": sometimes this week.

Theming Drupal Comments

Drupal "4.7 Beta 4": was just released, and the "patch": to make comment block themable is included. This means I should be able to make Drupal's "K2 port": 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,": thus never tried "quicksilver.": I've heard good things about it, though. "Colibri": is supposed to serve similar needs on a windows box, and I'm lovin' it.

Keyboard rules.
