Sean Elfstrom has Radio glue for Apple's new iTunes music player app. He says "I 'borrowed' a lot of it from the original driver for Sound Jam (since they are built on the same codebase), but the scripting support is pretty broken."
Hey Dean has a Baseball Weblog. And he's opinionated too. That's the way to go. Oh no, he's a Yankees fan. Oh geez. Meanwhile Sheila is counting the days to spring training. Didn't we just finish the World Series? Are we really going to do this again?
Tonight's song: "Come hear Uncle John's Band by the river side. Got some things to talk about here beside the rising tide."
I got all the answers right on this stupid quiz.
I forgot that Bob Denver played Maynard G Krebbs, the good-natured teenage beatnik on Dobie Gillis before he was Gilligan. (His picture is to the right.) Dwayne Hickman, who played Dobie, has a website, of course. "I have been in show business since I was six years old but my true love has been art and architecture."
BTW, maynardgkrebbs.com is not taken.
Good morning Scripting News people. It's coffee-time, and catch up on what's new. Adam asks me to send him a bill. He picked up on my "tip jars are for tips" quote in Fortune yesterday. Where does Salon dig up stories like this? A product I've been waiting for. O'Reilly posted the schedule for the P2P conference next month. I'm speaking twice, on the Two-Way-Web and on amateur journalism. Peterme rants back at Dale: "Journalists don't actually know anything." Surprising results from yesterday's survey. A majority of the participants have a server on their desktop machine. Glad I asked! Wow.
This is a programming weekend for me. I'm going to take care of lots of little loose-ends in our Desktop Website project. We've got a nice user base testing the stuff. Everyone's using it differently. Our prefs system is really easy to work with, so I'm going to (try to) give everyone what they want.
Adam Curry: "If you use MSIE5 on a Mac, whenenever you request a page from localhost, click to another app or the desktop, this will allow the page to load. It is stupid and sucks, but you get used to it after a while and at least it works."
