Actually I wrote this entry about Chris Kaminski’s article last night before I saw the news that MS was dropping the feature. A lot of ink has been spilled over the problems with this feature over the last three weeks so, I’ll just Mr. Kaminski’s list of reasonable demands:
Things seem to be working normally now except one of the client-side editing tools has broken. Considering all that I’ve done, this is surprisingly good news. Things I’ve changed: Fixed the URL strings of the Karma function so that they parse as kosher markup in W3C validators Removed most of the presentational markup in the [...]
They are now thinking about using something like packet-switching for the North American power grid to improve the efficiency of electrical distribution. Peter Fairley is a good journalist because he, in addition to talking about the new switching technology, also examines some of the unexpected consequences of deregulation in the Nineties. Hope that one of [...]
Back in the late Eighties, a soon to be old dear friend of mine introduced me to the Flaming Carrot. My sensibilities have been warped ever since.

Basically biologists and bio-engineers are getting to the point where they’ll be able to build a virus entirely from scratch. [...]
Even in HTML. I consider myself pretty experienced with this stuff but today I found something about the BASE element that I didn’t know before. I found this striking because I have a lot of internal links in my journal posts and, until now, I had to mark them as absolute URLs to keep them [...]
Mr. Gamut sent me a story about a boyscout who tried to build a breeder reactor in his mother’s backyard shed. Lord Odinmank sent me the result of using Lego to pry into secrets humanity was not meant to know. I found a story about some nerds from IBM and Cambridge University who managed to [...]
