Don’t Forget: Vote for the Bloggies – you have until thursday to do so… While looking at the nominees, it dawned upon me that I have always read technical blogs, or to be more precise: blogs about IT events in the usually (semi-)professional lives of IT’ers. So the Bloggies opened a window upon totally different subjects (err, lives), like Siobhan’s Diary (used to be linked to http://www.tranniefesto.co.uk/).

If… – no, I mean: when – I get my iPod, I’ll put these podcasts (used to be linked to http://www.hetpaleis.be/interactief/blogs/blog003/) from a theatrical company on it. I propose to call them “spot-casts” (sorry, for Dutchies only), or perhaps “spod-casts”?

Nice work, Olympus. The Olympus C-7070 digital camera looks close to ideal: solid build, excellent specs, ideal lens, and using CompactFlash cards. But at the moment, I’m still happy with my Nikon CP-5400…

About Huyghens: “At 11:25 CET the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope (GBT)… has detected the probe’s ‘carrier’ (tone) signal.” (ESA).

About The Future. The theme of the 3rd DRM Conference will certainly be one of those factors to shape the future of our society, for better or for worse: Digital Rights Management. Unfortunately, the website does not contain articles or presentations by the speakers… you’ll have to look elsewhere to learn what was discussed.

Jython, Javalobby, Firefox: A Strange Combo. I’ll have to reread this Introduction to Jython while trying out the examples – understanding what you read is one thing, but hands-on experience is necessary to fully grasp learning matter! Side-note: I’m having nothing but trouble with the new Javalobby.org interface, while browsing the site in Firefox (on Mac OS X): the menus are popping up all over the page, except on the spot where there supposed to be; navigating the article comments is quite simply impossible. In Safari, all seems OK – and no, I’m not digging out Internet Explorer!

Back To The Future? Wired News: Emulators Answer The Call: “Some hackers have started porting emulators for old systems like the Amiga or Commodore 64 into their cellular phones and PDAs“. I can see how, a few years from now, we’ll have a Palm emulator on our cell phone – or worse, a PC emulator!

Don’t Scratch. I’m having some trouble with the stability of my Mac G4 since its arrival, and that fact made me realise a long time ago that it’s worthwhile to have the OS and the user data on separate disks or volumes – doing it like that makes it a lot easier to reinstall OS X. But while it’s easy to put your own documents (texts, photos, whatever) anywhere but your own home folder, it’s not exactly simple to do the same with bookmarks and mails – browsers and mail programs put these in your Preferences. When I looked around about two years ago, I only found webpages advising against putting your user folders on anything but the OS X volume; simple instructions for a fresh Darwin administrator like myself were nowhere to be found. Here’s a scenario that has captured my interest, and I will probably implement those parts that I need at the moment: Setting up your OS X from scratch – thanks, Adriaan Tijsseling! I just hope that it’s only the table of contents that is out of date (there’s no longer a chapter on “useful utilities”…).

Flashy! Through Weblogs Inc. I have found this nifty “free, customizable Flash image viewing application”: SimpleViewer. I wonder: can you also install this on a CD-ROM – that would be a lot simpler than trying to create my own solution!
