I find myself reading advogato more than slashdot now. I think that's a good thing. Slash is kinda overpopulated now. No good thing can last so, I guess I'm riding this advogato thing until it's through too.

Meta--Since everyone else is doing it...

I'd personally like to see someone make scripts for getting the diaries off other websites. With their permission, it would be cool to have Miguel's, Alan and Telsa's diary as well. It would be cool to see them side by side on a per day basis. It would be nice to have them all in one place so I wouldn't have to go looking for them. Of course the rest would be nice to have: linkable entries and all the rest. I was thinking that diary entries should have a sort of meta language. Something so I wouldn't have to type out blockquote all the time.

Side note:Block quote is really useful. I've never really used the tag but, now I know.

And knowing is half the battle

I never appreciated that as a kid, watching G.I. Joe. But, the more I live, the more that's true. I know how to design but, I don't make sites like I know I should. I know I should finish this paper and stop making incessently long diary entries but, I don't. I know but, doesn't mean that the battle is won. Life is like that more and more like cartoons. I'm just waiting for Gundams to come flying out of the sun and take me away to the rest of my delusions...
