Well, I've been experimenting with Planet, and I must say it's very cool. It's a feed aggregator, but instead of displaying them on your local computer, it creates a webpage. I'm going to use it to grab all the blogs of Adium developers and put them all together on a webpage. I'm really impressed with how easy it is to set up. There are no dependancies except Python 2.2, which everyone really should have anyway. Setup was a snap, took me a few minutes. It seems to be quite customizable. I'm going to have fun playing with it, methinks. It seems to have problems with certain feeds though *cough*xanga*cough*. Oh well, I guess nothing is perfect.

Things have been going slowly for me, programming-wise. I haven't been terribly productive, despite a lot of free time. It's an annoying feeling, and I'd like to shake it off somehow. Ah well, I'm sure I'll get over it. I've got some neato stuff in the works for Adium, like bringing back the Evil Menubar Duck, for starters. I think he's going to be even more dangerous this time. I hope he doesn't get lose on Adam's computer and delete half of his home directory again. That was not fun.

I'm beginning to wander, so I'll wrap this up. That CSS Font news article I talked about last time is almost ready. Expect to see it soon. I set up that planet thing, so you can check out planet.fourx.org for an aggregate of my blogs (and possibly in the future, blogs I read). Neat stuff.
