WordPress 2.7 is released (Download Squad)

Dec 30th 2008 2:02PM Hmm. Sounds interesting. I'll have to get around to checking whether it works with Spam Karma 2 still and, if so, upgrade from 2.3. (Akismet has too many false negatives for me to be happy with it)

Firefox will eventually let users turn web apps into desktop apps (Download Squad)

Dec 30th 2008 1:23PM I generally prefer to keep my web apps in my bookmarks toolbar anyway, so this won't help much. When I use a desktop app, I use it because the GUI latency and memory consumption are significantly lower than running web apps in Firefox. (or any other browser, for that matter)

I'm actually considering writing an offline Google Reader clone using PyQt (Python bindings for the Qt widget toolkit) and FeedReader (an "it just works" feed parsing module for Python) for just that reason.
