FlickrBlog has been running an excellent series of interviews from some of my favorite photobloggers this week. Here are the three that they have released so far:
The Flickr Blog today featured some excellent portraits of people living on the streets of San Francisco.
I have some problems with these things, though. First of all, I added a red border to the example below so that you can see the large whitespace at the bottom. The height of the iframe can easily be changed to compensate for that, but I have no way of knowing that the space in question will never be used, so I am hesitant to remove it. I have tried adding more stock symbols to see if that would increase the height of the widget in order to fill the whitespace, but instead of filling the space, the iframe was only made taller.
I love the name of this thing. Who knew that Mr. Buffett had a whole line of kitchen appliances to go along with his restaurants and bars named after his famous song? It’s smart, too. The Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker “automatically mixes the right proportion of ice with the ingredients.” This will be a nice addition to my Caribbean kitchen.
I’m not sure which I like better: the Ted Stevens remix or the slick Odeo flash player.
Bloglines, which I stopped using long ago, recently added support tools for publishers. This will be very useful if you ever have to move a feed and don’t want to rely on your 301 to handle everything for you. But, if your feed stays in the same place when you move your site to a different domain, you are still out of luck. Here’s hoping someone at Bloglines is once again answering customer emails. I know that the last couple of emails that I sent in went unanswered.
Update: No response from Bloglines, but I noticed that they did manually update my site URL. Once this had been done, I was able to claim my feed and perform edits.
I see many searches coming in for “DumpTorrent”. Not having heard of DumpTorrent, I did some searching. Apparently it was a small-ish BitTorrent tracker that never left the experimental stage. I’m not sure if it works, but the source went offline and is barely alive in Google’s cache. In the interest of preserving the tiny tracker, I have mirrored the source file.
