  • MyRSS: A command-line (python) RSS aggregator.

  • A Lindows PC for $199.86: With a Via C3 800mhz chip in it of course.  That’s really really cheap for a PC though.  Roll ’em back!

  • LJ::Simple: An OOP Perl library for accessing livejournal.

  • Latest Netcraft Survey: Apache owns about 2/3 of the web serving scene. This is good. [via dive into mark]

  • Horrible Exception: java.lang.OutOfMemoryError

    Ack!  A horrible exception!  Of course that’s opposed to all of the happyfun exceptions that a program can throw.  This horrible exception comes from a Jetspeed demo siteJetspeed is part of the Jakarta project, which is in turn part of the Apache project.  Jetspeed looks like a really cool project:

    Jetspeed is an Open Source implementation of an Enterprise Information Portal, using Java and XML. A portal makes network resources (applications, databases and so forth) available to end-users. The user can access the portal via a web browser, WAP-phone, pager or any other device. Jetspeed acts as the central hub where information from multiple sources are made available in an easy to use manner.

    A working demo site can be found here, although it is a development version, so horrible exceptions might be lurking.  Of course the horrible exception came from a bleeding edge demo site too, so there’s not a whole lot to worry about, stability wise.  I’ll have to code that in to a project sometime.
