New search module

I replaced the Rollyo search box with one provided by technorati. Unfortunately, it only searches blogposts and not ReBlogs. I presume because in the RSS feed, ReBlogs don't link to youxylo.com, but instead they are linked to their original source. This works out fine if I want to provide a blog post-only search box, but not so much if you want to search the site for something that was ReBlogged. Providing the ability to search ReBlogs will either require a change to the way ReBlogs are represented in the feed (like by implementing some kind of redirect from youxylo.com based on a link id) or by providing a separate search box altogether.

Because it's become a meme

I prefer recursion. On another note, symbolic systems seems like a good explanation for my academic track. I think I'll use it.

Best use of water, cornstarch and a conrete truck. Ever.

UMPCs Hacked to Run Mac OS X

I never really "got" the idea of a tablet PC. But I'm thinking maybe until now it's because they all ran windows.

Package Source Code inside Mac OS X Applications

AppDNA is a small XCode shell script which efficiently packages a Mac OS X Application's source code into the application itself. The resulting embedded project directory is fully functional, allowing the code and resources to be examined, modified and re-built. The application is self-compiling when a Release build is performed.

Wooster on Spring

I really wish I were in New York right now.

notMac Challenge :: Home

This sounds like a good candidate for something that ties into Amazon's S3. Like a program that runs in the background, listens for .Mac activity and uses S3 for storage.

David Choe co-founded Napster?

Suddenly Facebook has so much more credibility with me.

Something More Than a Machine gets a little more social

Blog Posts (not ReBlogs) will now have additional links at the bottom of the permalink page to do nifty stuff like email the post to someone else, add it to digg or delicious and check Sphere for related posts.

The links will only appear on the archived permalinks, and not on the main page.

UPDATE: Actually, this feature is being implemented via Feedburner's FeedFlare suite, which doesn't seem to work consistently. So, depending on how everything is working on their end you may or may not see it on any given blog post.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
