Design Tip : Make yourself part of Tom Goes to The Mayor (Download Squad)

Apr 26th 2007 11:48PM Yep, that's the Macdonald bridge in Halifax.. shot from Barrington Street near the Navy base. I live in the South End.

On Location: Barack Obama rally, Austin, TX (StyleList (Main))

Feb 27th 2007 12:11PM I recently started rockin' the faux-hawk myself. It's got an odd sort of generational twinge to it; Those under 40 make no mention of it, and those over 40 stare as if my hair stylist used me as a test subject. I think that underscores the "trend in the making" statements above.

A shot..

Ultra skinny jeans though? Really? Did we learn nothing from the 1980's?

Aggregating myself with Yahoo! Pipes (Download Squad)

Feb 20th 2007 4:57PM Pipes is quite a bit of fun. My main goal writing this tutorial was to give a foundation from which to jump off when writing more in depth examples of how to use Pipes. We'll be doing more cool stuff with Yahoo!'s new baby, soon!

Aggregating myself with Yahoo! Pipes (Download Squad)

Feb 20th 2007 2:07PM Similar idea but, Pipes is way more flexible that that AIM buddy notifications system.

Yahoo Music exec agreeing with Jobs' DRM-free sentiment? (Engadget)

Feb 14th 2007 12:38AM Dave Goldberg has been anti-DRM for quite some time. In fact, simply sticking "dave goldberg drm" in google nets you this page as the first result..

Steve Jobs flips 180 on DRM (Download Squad)

Feb 7th 2007 5:19PM Same goes for every single song or item that is available from eMusic.. You'd be amazed how many artists/labels don't require DRM and, I don't think a single one of them would tell you that they've been hurt more by piracy than any major label artist.

Gorbachev asks Gates to show mercy on pirate teacher (Download Squad)

Feb 6th 2007 5:51PM Trust me, it's a pile of bull. I've been covering digital music related topics for quite some time, the evidence against AllofMp3 is overwhelming and the points in AllofMp3's favor are only touted by AllofMp3. I'm all for innovative ways to kill DRM but, AllofMp3 is clearly operating outside the law.

IIS vs Apache, in pictures (Download Squad)

Feb 6th 2007 1:55PM "You can run PHP, Perl, etc on IIS... you can't on Apache..."

You can't possibly believe this. And really, .Net? I guess you've not seen this..

Common Linux myths dispelled (Download Squad)

Feb 3rd 2007 11:39AM You're wrong.. Installing Ubuntu and then Automatix is everything you need to have video codecs, openoffice, gimp, etc.. It's actually really easy.

As far as all that command line tinkering you speak of, I don't buy it. Maybe 5 years ago, sure.. I've been using linux since 1994 and, I certainly remember frustrating package management and compiling crap from scratch but, I've not done any of that in a long time.
