Nick’s Dream

Just testing another neat little software tool I ran across this morning… Daikini Photon. It exports from iPhoto directly to any blog running on the major platforms. I think I prefer the 3D bordered thumbnails I get from Thumbscrew, though.

Golf Art Film

A San Francisco filmmaker is working on a film about golf. It apparently will be unlike any golf movie you’ve seen before. (I’m not sure that calling it a ‘movie’ is right at all – in this case, ‘film’ seems more appropriate.) If you don’t believe me, check out the trailer. It’ll take a few […]

Learned Something Just Now

And that is how to incorporate these symbols “< >” into the text of a page which is encoded in HTML. See, HTML uses “< >” to set tags apart from actual text, so if you want to include the “< >” as actual text the HTML interpreters get confused unless you encode….oh, never mind.

More Interesting Katrina Information

I really need to be focusing on other things but I did find this timeline, by Rick Moran, to be a compelling compilation of information about events in New Orleans. His source for nearly all his points is the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Rick’s research sheds light on many of the events before, during and after […]

This Might Be Funny If It Weren’t So Tragic

It’s in the NY Times, so it must be true, right? City to Offer Free Trips to Las Vegas for Officers By JOSEPH B. TREASTER and CHRISTOPHER DREW NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 4 – A day after two police suicides and the abrupt resignations or desertions of up to 200 police officers, defiant city officials on […]

I Am Appalled

…by the loss of life and property along the Gulf Coast. …by the callous appropriation of the tragedy by some to promote their political agenda. …by the abandonment of any semblance of unbiased reporting by most of the broadly read and viewed media such as CNN, The Washington Post, The LA Times, The New York […]
