Day: May 26, 2003
Here are links that have come to dominate the taskbar over the holiday weekend, from left to right:
- Timothy Appnel on web services, weblogs, and what’s next.
- Port 80 Software on URLs.
- Zawodny has an obituary of PageRank.
- Maximum Galoots Atypical PHP Soapbox hilights a PHP threading class.
- Ed Cone notes that Orson Scott Card is writing the story for a video game. He’s got a guaranteed customer here.
- After a few good IPOs, my Blogshares portfolio is doing decently well. BS$16k is pathetic compared to some, but I’m happy with it.
- Via Slashdot, P45.net has linkage to the source code used in an Ireland election.
- What is Rael up to with all of these test posts?
- Slashdot BSD: “FreeBSD’s Dag-Erling Smorgrav reports the successful cross-world build of the amd64 tree (A tinderbox is system designed to test builds and report failure. In the FreeBSD case, tinderboxes build world [the base system], GENERIC, and if applicable LINT kernels. Dag-Erling Smorgrav currently runs all the tinderboxes by cross-building from i386).”
- PIL, the Python Image Library, 1.1.4 is out.
- JXHTMLEDIT “is a cross-platform WYSIWYG HTML/XHTML content authoring tool, a very small Java applet based on the Java 2 Platform.”
- python-crack “is a module that provides Python programs with the ability to evaluate password strength. It uses the well known cracklib toolkit, hence the name.”
- CNN reports that Enter the Matrix sales have already topped 1 million in about a week and a half.
- According to Yahoo Movies, Reloaded has grossed approximately $209 million. It’s approaching the $300 million or so that was spent on Reloaded and Revolutions combined.
- I think that Revolutions is set up to blow us away while raking it in at the box office. Reloaded has been called the most hyped movie of the year. Revolutions comes out in November. It’s too big a movie to be a sleeper hit, but it’s going to be huge. Many were dissapointed with Reloaded, but Revolutions has the ability to piggyback and slingshot off the current release.
