DTD trouble
We've been wondering a bit why polling with Straw seems to take f'ng ages, blocking the UI totally for long periods when polling. Jan already figured out with hotshot that the problem was the parsing of documents with our "real" XML parser. With the help of the aspects module, I was able to confirm this and additionally was able to isolate the problem feeds. Turns out that when a RSS file contained a doctype declaration, giving the URL to http://my.netscape.com/publish/formats/rss-0.91.dtd, apparently the parser fetches the DTD. Over here, that means an UI freeze of about 29 seconds. So much for asynchronous network IO.Well, we're pretty much decided to drop the fancypants XML parsing and go all the way to Mark Pilgrim's Feed Parser, seeing as it's actively maintained. Still, it would be interesting to find out if the DTD fetching behaviour can be disabled?

Sky Writing
On the other side of every fear, ecstasy awaits us, hanging out on some romantically lit street corner wondering what's taking us so long. I spent the day in the light of the sun and other beautiful explosions of truth So for years, I've always thought I was writing quatrains while on the bus or train. Today I pulled out that term (I was so excited about sharing the idea of writing in real-time about the experience of being transposed, molecularly, consciously, spiritually, essentially from one side of the Bay to another, and I rushed ahead and dropped a twenty-one...

1000st Post on the Bay Area Futurists Yahoo Group
This is the 1000st message on the Bay Area Futurists Yahoo Group. I would like to thank everyone who contributed and makes this one of the most interesting boards out there regarding futuristic themes. Mike Korns said it yesterday evening at the dinner and I would like to extend a special thank to Wayne for the many quality well researched posts. Mike even said that he keeps all of his posts. We joked, that he does that, so that he has a track record, for when the Feds catch up with Wayne :-) When you search the board for Wayne, it turns out that he is mentioned in 921 of our 1000 posts. I always post the announcements and my name is so much more common, still I only get six more 927.

How Scoble reads 618 Blogs per day aka One power blogger's workflow
(SOURCE:The Scobleizer Weblog)- Wow! I read about 50 blogs per day in NetNewsWire. These are my MUSTs. And I read my Radio Userland aggregator with about 200 blogs 1-3 times a day. These are my WANTS. And I don't lose any sleep if I can't get to my Radio aggregator and I love the Radio feature where everything is displayed on one page and the old items are automagically deleted. I thought I was doing well and I thought I read fast, but I just don't have the time to read more much as I would like to. Must make money. QUOTE Yesterday I showed yet another team at Microsoft what weblogging is all about. They did not believe that I'm now watching 618 websites every day. They couldn't understand how I do it. When I proved to them that I was, indeed, watching that many sites, their eyes popped out. And, I'm adding more. I visit weblogs.com once a week or so looking for cool new weblogs that the rest of you don't know about. (That's how Dave Winer discovered me, by the way). Last night I ...

Inside Information
Chris Sells blogs on getting the inside scoop. Particularly, he points out that he occasionally used to ask friends inside Microsoft for info, after exhausting other reasonable means. Now, I'm just a regular joe without 'friends' at MS, but I've always noticed that every time I've contacted Microsoft with a reasonable question, the people on the other end have literally jumped through hoops to assist me. How many of you have complained about MSDN documentation? I know that I have (My response is under the pseudonym 'jerdenn'). I've sent a similar messages to microsoft support on several occasions, and not only do I usually get a message back acknowledging the problem, but I also receive a detailed proposed solution (including code). A while back I was interested in the .NET Speech SDK, before the beta was publicly available. I emailed the Speech SDK team, and they actually offered to send me an alpha version of the software. Really, I've always had a good experience in this realm - ...
