This morning there’s a report on local news that a critical piece of Bay Area roadway is out, and may be out for weeks or months.
The biggest traffic bottleneck in a traffic-challenged metropolitan area is known as the MacArthur Maze. Four major freeways, 880, 580, 24 and 80 all come together from the East Bay, and from the other side — the Bay Bridge connects all that with San Francisco.
Early this morning a gasoline tanker truck caught fire on a ramp connecting 580 westbound with 880, causing 250 yards of freeway to collapse.

Yesterday I released new code that allows you to browse the posts from all the people you’re following on Twitter.
How to: 1. Choose Update opml.root from the File menu. 2. Click on OK. 3. Quit and relaunch the OPML Editor app.
There’s a new Twitter sub-menu of the Community menu, with two commands: 1. The Preferences command allows you to set your Twitter username and password, and 2. My Twitter Friends opens an outline window with a list of your friends.
In the window, when you double-click on a friend’s name, after a short delay, we display the last 20 status messages posted by that person. If the the message contained a URL, the outline node is a link, if you double-click it, the link opens in your web browser (screen shot). Although I haven’t tried it yet, if the URL ends with .opml, it should open in-place, since that’s a hack the OPML Editor uses to trigger an OPML inclusion.
As usual, report any problems here, or on one of the mail lists.
PS: Amyloo got it before I even wrote it up.
