blah I’ve got quite a case of the blahs this morning. I’ve got sequence analysis code running, so my computer feels real sluggish, and I’m picking up on that. I think I’m going to kick back, watch my code run, read some statistics, and maybe hack a little on some of the GeneHack legacy content and the glossyGenpage code. Everybody have a good weekend…
shiny happy code I got a working version of glossGenpage going yesterday. I’ve still got to comment the code, add a few more bells-and-whistles, and update the documentation. I suppose I should contact the author of genpage and find out if he wants to fold my changes into his code base. If anybody wants a pre-release look at what I’ve done, mail me. A reasonably final version should be ready to go by Monday.
on the qt You’ve probably heard about Hushmail, which is a new web-based email service offering 1024-bit encryption. If you feel the need to send me something and fear that They are watching, mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org, ok?
follow-up Jorn Barger of Robot Wisdom dropped a line to
let me know that Dave Winer’s stated purpose in registering those
domain names (see below) was about what I described
(directory-cum-search-engine). I poked around Scripting News and associated
sites a bit this morning and found some discussion group threads on
the subject. All the weblog domains point to
interesting… One little nugget for the evening — more in the morning. I was brain-farting around ideas about weblogs and some social stratification issues; which weblogs are more popular and why, etc., etc. I was wondering about setting up some kind of meta-directory-cum-search-engine for weblog sites, which would index daily weblog entries, on the theory that the links are more likely to be ‘good’, whatever that means. So, just on a lark, I did some whois searches on domains. Check out who’s got web-log.com, web-logs.com, and weblogs.com snapped up. weblog.com is registered to a Korean company, but doesn’t appear to be serving web pages. Given the rather ideosyncratic naming conventions of the weblog crowd, we’d need to come up with a more original name, me thinks.
