I’ll probably have sidebar RSS feeds one day but until then, here they are: Nano news from around the planet as compiled by Google. The earliest entries at Nanodot. News on nanotech and MEMS as compiled by SmallTimes. Gina Miller’s nanotech news.
Happy Halloween! Anyway, while reading the redesigned Blogdex, I came across an article about backlinking and web logs. This interested me so I figured I’d add a little heat and noise to the conversation.
Privoxy is the geek’s tool (Read that as, “you have to have a vague understanding how HTTP and proxies work in order to use it.”) for combating popups and other forms of obnoxious Web advertising. It is a revision of the original Internet Junkbuster code and greatly extends its power and functionality. Joe Bob says [...]
Can’t think of anything compelling to write today so, I offer the following: Peter Klausler attempts to answer the following question: Could an evolutionary design algorithm and a huge input sample discover a better keyboard arrangement? While not quite nanotech, micro-electromechanical systems can do many of the same things as nanotech and they pose many [...]
Today, I fixed my old Emerson Electric desk fan. This monster was built back in the nineteen-forties or the nineteen thirties and it really shows–solid steel everywhere and everything is designed to be taken apart and reassembled. It could probably survive a nuclear weapon detonation at 1000 meters and still work! It weighs a ton [...]
For quick summation of some great CSS hacks, visit Real World Style. If you have NT 4, Windows 2000 or XP and you’ve looked at the service settings in MMC, you’ll find something called Windows Messenger service. Windows systems, including Win9x, use this service to send some system error messages and network alerts to you. [...]
I hate that jar of pennies I have. I hate having to pack pennies into little rolls to take to the bank. I have a little pocket on my equipment vest just for pennies and other useless change and, I make it a point to always leave my apartment with 4 pennies from my jar [...]
New Scientist details a microgravity construction technique that uses radio waves and interference patterns to shape clouds of small particles into solid objects. I imagine by the time this technique becomes widely used, it will be supplemented with zillions of MEMS and nanobots. A few months back there was a conference here in Jet City [...]
As you may see, looking over the archive, I am not a very frequent poster to my log. I want to change this. I hereby promise to write at least one entry every weekday from here in. I may even throw a few weekend entries in for extra measure. This will be hard to do [...]
Microsoft, in a reactionary and cowardly refurbish, refuses to take a step forward to support web accessibility. Most of its pages don’t validate to standard. Wired Magazine, on the other hand, boldly shows the rest of the world that designing to valid web standards doesn’t mean sacrificing branding or style. Personally I am hoping that [...]
