  • PyCon DC 2004

    Okay, under no circumstances will I miss PyCon DC 2004:

    DC 2004 will be held March 24-26, 2004 in Washington, D.C. It will contain many of the features of DC 2003, including a development sprint and a similar cost structure. Registration will be open by October 1.

    I flaked out of PyCon DC 2003, but I have to go this time.  I’ll also try to whip up a few proposals, we’ll see how it goes.

  • mytop 1.4

    Jeremy Zawodny:

    After a long period of not integrating patches, I’ve released the newest version of mytop.

    Great stuff for database navel-gazing, I’m checking it out now.

  • RSS Untangle

    TheServerSide notes Macromedia’s RSS Untangle, part of the $99 Macromedia DevNet Volume 4.

    It looks like there are lots of other goodies in that package, it might be worth checking out.

  • Nokia 6800: In The Wild notes that AT&T is now offering the Nokia 6800, the funky flipphone in the US.

  • Novell Acquires Ximian

    This just in via Google News:

    Networking software specialist Novell (Quote, Company Info), once a staunch proponent of proprietary software, continued its waltz into the open source sphere Monday with the announcement that it has acquired Ximian, the company behind the GNOME desktop for Linux.

    At first glance, I’m having a hard time viewing this as a good thing, but one must remain positive.  It’s a good sign that Miguel de Icaza will end up as CTO of Novell.  Hopefully the positive energy will flow from Ximian to Novell, and the stagnance of Novell won’t flow back to Ximian.

    I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed.

  • Free Glider

    Chris Heilman pointed out the freeware release of Glider yesterday.  I didn’t have any Macs booted up, so I grabbed the windows version of Glider 4.0.

    It seems to run fine under XP once you get past the installer freaking out because my Windows version number is higher than 3.10.

  • Flash Mobs

    Scoble‘s little flash mob gets some (virtual) ink in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

  • Trackback

    Radio gets trackback.
