Here are a few interesting reads from around the world wide web this evening. Microsoft trying to control blogging. Gator tries to shed it’s self-inflicted unpopularity by changing it’s name to Claria. Napster’s back (well, it’s pretending to be…). MSN splits in two. Mozilla Firebird is a viable (and better) alternative to Microsoft Internet Explorer. […]
People who are familiar are asking themselves, “What? Winamp 5?! What happened to version 4?” It was explained that Winamp 2 + Winamp 3 = Winamp 5. For those unfamiliar with the technical differences between Winamp 2.x (WA2) and Winamp3 (WA3): Winamp 2.x: This was a continuation of the old 1.x codebase. It works, it’s […]
Apple has finally released iTunes 4.1 for Windows bundled with the shiny-new QuickTime 6.4. I got home, downloaded and installed it, and decided to give it a whirl. I whisked through the iTunes Store… I wasn’t planning on buying anything just yet. Mainly, I just did some searches for bands and record labels that I […]
I’ve begun some preliminary work to launch a Mozilla / Opera 7 / Standards-compliant browser website. Many web designers and developers are fed-up with Internet Explorer, but many end-users are okay with IE.

I’ve discovered a nifty little MT plug-in called “Acronym”. It takes many of the common acronyms and abbreviations and gives them a keen little description that is visible on mouseover. Some of the more common ones are CSS, XHTML, W3C, IE, NS7, IE5/Mac, and US 508. Actually, it’s just my way of testing out what […]
I first started reading articles on the new changes to Internet Explorer (due to the Eolas patent case) beginning last night. Much more was written by this morning. Here are the articles I’ve come across so far… “Get Ready for IE Changes” – What Do I Know? “Eolas Fallout” – Mezzoblue “Changes to IE” – […]
After looking at my “Blogs I Read” section and my “RSS Feeds” section, it dawned on me that maybe I should combine the two. They share much of the same content, except that one is geared more towards RSS feeds (I’ll let you guess which one), and the other is more for what I read […]
