Dictionary Domains Update
I've just finished adding individual feeds for the various tlds (.com, .net and .org) available through the sources that I use. I've also added a second feed that displays all of the domains, but sends the information with a content type of text/xml. If you're using the old feed, please consider unsubscribing from it and using the new one that lists all of the domains so that I don't have to maintain the two of them (this is due to a request for those that want to attempt to view the RSS feed in Mozilla). Someone else asked about availability of .uk domains - the sources that I use provide only the three tlds that I make available. If the .uk tld was available to me, then I'd make it available in the feeds that I provide. I'll be putting up a page on the site today where all of this information as well as my to do list for the feeds is available. At this point, the only thing that I'm considering adding is scraping the definition for a domain and adding it to the description of the ...

JBuilder X
CNet: Software development company Borland Software on Tuesday introduced an overhauled edition of its Java programming tool designed to simplify creation of Web applications. So far I see support for JBoss and a visual Struts designer as big plusses. It looks like we'll be seeing a JBuilder X Foundation with more liberal licensing terms. This is good. More information can be gleaned from Borland's JBuilder site.

It's So Easy Being The Seer No, stop it. Please, you're embarassing me. Aw, shucks. OK, I admit it. I'm really good at picking NFL games. The Seer now stands at an otherworldly 49-34 mark against the spread, good for a 59.0% winning percentage. I know, I know. "They" said it couldn't be done. "They" said I wouldn't stick with it. "They" were all wrong. Yes, the Seer only won last night's Chiefs/Raiders game by a foot or so, but sometimes you have to be a little lucky in this business, too. Lucky, like the Chiefs. Oh, there was much gnashing of teeth and flapping of jaws last week when the Seer dared to say the Vikings looked, to his eye, to be a better team than the Chiefs. But Chiefs fans surely can't be enthused about the way their anemic offense looked last night against a pathetic Raiders D. That makes two very tight finishes in a row, on the heels of two games where the offense had to be bailed out by the special teams. Make no mistake, you take a win any way you can. Same ...

Offline blogging tools
I was looking for offline blogging tools this weekend, just to make sure I have a nice writing pad during those long PDC sessions :) After a bit of mostly unlucky research, I installed w.bloggar (v3.02). While the functionality of the tool is impressive, it lacks in a couple of areas that I hoped were covered. First of all, there's no WYSIWYG editing. That surprised me a bit, as I was under the impression that it would be a must have feature. Then trying to drag and drop images into the writing area would create an object (in the OLE sense) instead of just an <img> link. Given the settings panel where you set up the FTP info for upload, I hoped I could just drop an image and then the software would take care of removing the local drive path, replace it with the one in the FTP settings and finally upload the image to the FTP server. Maybe I'm not using it correctly, but it doesn't seem to work. Anyone has another suggestion for a blog WYSIWYG editor with drag and drop capabilities? ...

Philippines Call Centres.
Philippines Call Centres. WSJ writes about the culture spawned by the call centres in Philippines - something we will probably see replicated in India. There are 30,000 people answering phones and e-mail queries in Manila, doing work -- for $600 to $800 a month -- that generally pays better than bookkeeping in a bank or similar white-collar employment. That figure could double over the next couple of years, call-center operators predict, creating a middle class that actually stays in the Philippines rather than one that must emigrate to work overseas, as millions of Filipinos have done. At 2 a.m. on a recent Saturday, Sherylyn de la Santos bit down on a microwaved cheesedog on the steps of a 7-Eleven store. Her friend Gabriella Manalo held her Coke. It would be a midafternoon break in Baltimore, but in Manila it was time to hit the booming all-night cornershops for some refreshment. So far, there is no shortage of people who want to work on U.S. time -- companies such as eTelecare ...

Complimenti alla Soncini
Me la sto godendo come un matto a seguire il diluvio seguito all'articolo della Guia Soncini sul Foglio del 14 ottobre scorso. E' passata una settimana ma la polemica ancora ferve. Le parole scelte sono state, evidentemente, sufficientemente pesanti e provocatorie per generare cotanta flame. Ben più grevi di quell'eterea "fuffa" che fu emessa l'anno scorso da Qs (Quinto Stato). Ma in fondo il concetto è lo stesso, declinato però sullo stile della destra italiana di oggi. Una prima cosa che mi ha colpito è come sia stato quasi perfettamente seguito il dettato del Cluetrain Manifesto e del Gonzo marketing. Anzi, tutto il dossier sarebbe da tradurre in inglese (americanizzato) e spedire via e-mail agli autori di quell'opera fondamentale, che sostanzialmente dice: parla fuori dei denti e apri una conversazione (anche in forma di flame), secondo il linguaggio della rete e della gente. Guia, certamente, la sua bordata di apertura l'ha tirata con un linguaggio volutamente fuori dai denti, ...

Creative Commons Blogs Digital Media Article
Creative Commons folks just blogged my Creative Commons Licenses for Digital Media article. It was also a hoot to see an article in yesterday's Wall Street Journal - "Can Copyright Be Saved?" (subscribers only) that echoes my CC piece. I'd argue that it's a bit of a watering-down of the truth, though. When they say "the digital age hasn't changed anything in terms of the rights of artists and entertainment companies to control the distribution of their creations", I beg to differ.

PDC-prep and Virtual PC
I've been a big fan of virtual pc products like VMWare and Virtual PC for a long time. I actually first used Virtual PC on a Mac. As a long time user of VMWare, I gave up when I had too many problems with version 4 and couldn't get tech support to respond (but that's another story) and switched to Virtual PC. Since I do a ton of testing on pre-release products, I find using virtual PCs a great tool. One of my favorite features is Undo drives. Basically, you do a bunch of work for a while and then when you shut down the virtual PC, you can just throw away the changes or keep them and have the changes merged with your main image. Well, yesterday I got a great tip from a co-worker, Ken Getz [0]. You see, I've got a two 9 Gb virtual PC images (assigned 512Mb of RAM) with VS 2003, SQL 2000 SP3, Whidbey, and Yukon that I'm using for my pre-con on Sunday. One runs Windows XP, the other Windows 2003. Ken got tip from a mutual friend, Bernard Wong (the former wizard behind the agent [1]). ...

21 Oct 2003
Finally finished the libxml2-2.6.0 release from hell at 3am yesterday. To give an idea the ChangeLog since 2.5.10 are 1132 lines long. you can check the xmlsoft.org news to get an shorter version of what got in. Lot of new cleaner parsing API, SAX2, proper error handling, xmlWriter and Walker APIs, lots of bug fixes. The resulting code is cleaner, more modular, smaller and faster even with the new stuff, and it should still be API and ABI compatible (I'm typing this on my Red Hat 9 desktop with libxml2-2.6.0 replacing 2.5.x default, no trouble). There is a 2_5_X branch in CVS but it really should not be needed. Now I need to 1/ close the related bugs 2/ make some new docs 3/ do the maintainance work that such huge change will obviously generate 4/ look at some changes done at the spec level like XML-1.1 and the 3rd edition of XML-1.0 . But I feel far more comfortable with the current framework than with the 2.5.x one. William Brack have been helping me tremendously with ...
