Dave‘s got an interesting round-up at the OPML corral, “Share your OMPL”.. Yikes, another acronym! If you dig a bit deeper it comes up as Outline Processer Markup Language , now that is much more clear! Huh? Think of of it as a way to use XML to represent outline forms of content, which if […]
A key feature since the first version is that every slide page also pre-loads the next image for a smoother slide to slide flow.
I’ve raved before about Kung-Log, Adriaan Tijsseling’s amazingly sleek Mac OXS application for doing just about all the MovableType composing and editing. Change is on the way and it is good- Adriaan is at work on a new version, re-named “ecto”. In fact, I am “ecto”-ing this entry now in beta version 0.1.5, and it […]
Ari Paparo assembled a longer than you might expected list of web search tools for specifically searching weblogs and/or RSS feeds. My new theory on blogging is that whenever I can’t find a particular piece of information on Google I should just create it myself. What’s the point of all this easy-to-use publishing technology if […]
No addresses or URLs have been shuffled, but today I finally managed to move our ‘Jade’ server (if anyone has caught notice, all machines in my area are domain named after minerals… my G4 laptop is ‘Topaz’, my beige PC is “Pyrite’, there is an old Mac named ‘Sphalerite’ acting as a mulit-user server for […]

Time for a break- this CogDog is off at our secret hideaway, tethered to the net only by a 28 kbps modem line. At that rate, the RSS reader chokes and sputters on those fat feeds, bloated graphic web sites are not worth the bother, and those internal emails full of attached Word files or […]
Now that the copies of our mcli Forum have gone out to our colleges, we are getting a lot of interest, questions, head scratching about RSS from the “Pssss… Have You Heard About RSS?” article. An email came today from one of our Governing Board members who found the article “interesting”– this is remarkable and […]
There are a few threads to this story. I had seen an odd thing on one of our new XHTML designed web sites— this one uses an HTML <ul> list and CSS for rollover effects and graphic-looking buttons for the navigation. In Internet Explorer 6 (and then reports came in for IE5 users) the text […]
