Found via TidBITS: Picnik. From the developers: People have asked about which tools/languages we use. We use Flash 9/Flex on our client. Our server is Linux, Apache, MySQL and Python. Given our Microsoft systems backgrounds (Darrin and I worked on OS/2 and NT back in the day), this has been a fun and interesting experience. [...]
Surely, surely, this is some sort of cosmic joke: On Hockey: Bruins give up too much – The MetroWest Daily News: Now, no offense to Wideman, but I saw him play back when he was with St Louis’ farm club in Worcester, the Ice Cats… and, umm… Dennis Wideman? For Brad Boyes? Really? I bet [...]
What? Eric, are you all right? Who the hell are you talking to? The message to the Red Sox front office from the fans is clear: Sign Curt Schilling. Just about everything I’ve read has come down on the side of the Sox, versus a talented pitcher who just cannot keep his big mouth shut. [...]
These are a few of the tools I use to get some writing done. For Sane Magazine I use a few home-rolled apps to generate the main issue and the horoscopes. They aren’t public as of yet, nor are they even Universal Binary yet. They just work, mostly, and don’t get tweaked too much. Maybe [...]
For the development apps, more than anything these should not be taken as ringing endorsements… I like these apps, or, at the very least, put up with them. One thing that’s definitely hit me, being away from my former company, is that Java development is not nearly as nice as AppKit development. I’d much prefer [...]
As requested, here are a couple apps I use, have paid for, and swear at. Err, by. I’ve decided to break the entries down into: General Purpose, Writing, and Development. I’ve chucked each app, scientifically, into the group I probably use it most for, though it may apply to all the groups (or none of [...]
MetaxuCafé Litblog Network: I can’t imagine listening to songs with lyrics (at least in a language I understand) while I’m writing, but I imagine that sometimes a certain tune or whatever will set the scene or tone for what you’re writing. I’ve been listening largely to classical in the new writer’s room L gave me [...]
Yeah, I’m back using ecto. Prepping for a little entry on demand.
indexed Very, very funny. Found thanks to . Now, I suck at math, but I still find myself looking at the middle of those Venn diagrams. Hell, I didn’t even know that I remembered Venn diagrams. Go figure.
Hear, hear! Netminders Blog – Boston.com I’m tired of getting e-mails from hard core, or formerly hard-core fans, complaining about the game. Why does the NHL have this disease, it’s like the League suffers from low self-esteem: what can we change next, we’ve gotta make the nets bigger, we’ve gotta get more scoring, we’ve gotta [...]
