Atom Already!

I beg of you, name the freakin’ thing Atom so we can get on with it!

I mean really… come on!

Unless you live in California, you can’t vote in the recall election. If there is one. I think they have to vote on that. (And besides, Asa isn’t running.)

And if you think voting for the next President of the United States will have some effect on things, well, ok, I guess you can believe that…

But right here, in our midst, is a way for you to voice your opinion, and have it heard! Yes people, it’s time for NameFinalVote!

Enclose This

RSS enclosures in AmphetaDesk? Sure, why not… It doesn’t actually do an automagical download when you sleep, but I don’t really need that feature anyway. What it does do is display the enclosure link along with the description, allowing you to get the enclosure easily. About 15 minutes of early morning hacking produces a new version of the minigr skin for AmphetaDesk. (See screenshot)

Windows has uptime?

My co-worker (who is forced to worship at the alter of Microsoft and support Windows servers) alerted me to the fact that Windows counts it’s uptime in seconds. Meaning that while my Linux box tells me something like this: up 27 days. A Windows box, were it able to stay up more than a day, would display something like: The system uptime is 86400 seconds. He thinks this is because Microsoft doesn’t expect their boxes to be up more than a few minutes anyway…

But just in case you actually manage to keep your Windows box up and running for more than a few minutes, and don’t want to have to use the Event Viewer just to see the uptime, you can try this perl script: uptime.pl

All kidding aside, I do manage to keep my Windows box running for days at a time, and once a week I reboot it when I get sick of seeing system error dialogs…

List-o-matic

How freaking useful? The List-o-matic creates and formats menus using valid HTML and CSS.

It’s a must see tool.

And it’s proof that ASP isn’t completely useless!

WaiZilla

WaiZilla is a way cool project:

WaiZilla will hopefully be an Open Source implementation of an accessibility validation tool. Open source meaning it doesn’t cost 99 dollars.

The project is underway using XUL for its implementation meaning that it will work on Windows, Linux and Mac with no alteration.

More info at the WaiZilla blog, until waizilla.com is functional…

I still don’t understand how some people choose to do web development with IE… Testing? Sure, but development?
