June 2005 Archives

I used to run an IRC robot called shorten that'd scan the channels it was on for long URLs and shorten them using Metamark:http://metamark.net/

Not using IRC I'd forget to keep it running, so it's not much use.

If you'd like to volunteer to run it, send me a mail and I'll point you to the code. :-)

update - Tod McQuillin foolishly generously volunteered. Thanks Tod!

On the qpsmtpd mailinglist Matt writes

Apparently there's an article on qpsmtpd in Norway's "Linux Magasinet" this month. Print only.

Anyone with a copy and a scanner? :-)

update - seems like a copy of it is on its way, thanks marcus

Steve Jobs commencement address to Stanford graduates. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.

David Sedaris interview and extra snippets from the interview that didn't fit in the paper.

Nick Hornby on Fresh Air talking about A Long Way Down

blo.gs acquired by Yahoo!

Jim Winstead tells

the sale of blo.gs has been completed, and i'm proud to announce that yahoo! has acquired the service. as of right now, give or take a few minutes, yahoo! is running blo.gs.

this is the sort of good home that i was looking for - yahoo! obviously has the resources to run and improve blo.gs in pace with the incredible growth of blogs (and syndication in general), and in talking with them it was also clear that we had some of the same vision for the future of the service and the ping/notification infrastructure

Congratulations Jim.
