Scripting News for 9/15/2006

Chris Messina: “As a white boy who attended yesterday and today’s Future of Web Apps summit, I feel compelled to speak up about a disturbing element of an otherwise well-produced event.” 

SF Chron: “Technolgy guru Esther Dyson has quietly put out the word that the 2006 PC Forum, held in March in Carlsbad, California, would be the last.” 

Doc is in PhoneCo hell, with Verizon. No doubt all the people he’s talking to are in India or the Philippines. That’s what the SBC guys were telling me. But get this, I got a business card for one of the installers. It’s like gold. He speaks my language. Even better, it has an email address on it! Wow. Pretty cool. It’s a good idea to plant a few spies inside these big companies. Kind of like putting a blogger on the op-ed page of the NY Times. Hasn’t happened yet, but I’m sure someday it will.  

The wait is over, the DSL is working at the new house. Halla fucking loo yah! The techs at SBC were great. Once we got dial tone working, they swarmed on the house, and made it their mission to squeeze 6 megabits from the ancient copper running down my street. The result is an awesomely fast DSL connection. I also got 5 static IP addresses, so get ready for some fun new servers.  

Now that the DSL is in, it’s time to stress over something else. 🙂 

Today I’ll be over at the new house waiting for the DSL installer. Knock wood, praise Murphy, maybe I’ll have Internet at the new place. In the meantime, if anything interesting comes up I’ll post it on my mobile weblog

Gary Short: “It seems to me a namespace extension to RSS could be the way to go.”

    Now setup a small PC with IPCop as your main Firewall. That’s it, everything will be under control forever.
