  • Search Refit

    So back in 2002 I upgraded to htdig, well, now I have something that so far looks simpler to maintain. Check Search for the latest search engine ’round here. And thanks to Tom Bickle for spotting that my htdig installation was hosed. How embarassing. The underpinnings are the open source Perlfect.

  • Feedback on Google From Sassy

    Matthew Lee says about my post about the City of San Diego and Google: I think Don Norman said something like: “Even the term ‘navigation’ is pretentious–it assumes that people aren’t going to be able to find what they want without looking for it” Google rules, as far as I’m concerned google is the bar,…

  • History of Flash

    “The story of Flash as told by its inventor Jonathan Gay” — kind of neat. At my first web job we did lots of Splash work, crazy crazy stuff. I have the old FutureSplash and Flash icons in my old resume (I’m not linking you to old resumes. Yuck. The brave and/or crazy may visit…

Total time for…

  • evolt-o-rama!

    As I have mentioned before, evolt.org is cool. And they only improve with age and time. I have not written any articles (I have one news item, and that was back in 1999), but I have a fair share of <tip>’s which I posted to thelist. They also have implemented fancier user pages — here’s…

  • Quote of the Day:

    I have fought since the beginning of the Web for its openness: that anyone can read Web pages with any software running on any hardware. This is what makes the Web itself. This is the environment into which so many people have invested so much energy and creativity. When I see any Web site claim…

  • Time to get creative about dealing with popunders?

    Time to get creative about dealing with popunders? We all know about those crazy popunder ads which are more ubiquitous than ever- but Bill Rini of rini.org has some interesting thoughts on what we might do about them. I like this kind of brainstorming about a phenomenon that remains annoying as hell. cross-posted to metafilter…
