10:46 PM Longest Delay Ever!
Haven't written much lately. I have been a little busy with some contract work and with this once-a-year requirement to actually go to a store and buy things. And not even things for myself!
People spend more time buying gifts and putting up decorations and writing cards at Christmas than one gets back in vacation time. At Thanksgiving , one has to spend a lot of time preparing food.

Right now it only works for non-RDF RSS. I'll need to add something to detect RDF-based RSS as well.
Perhaps I'll package it into an XPI soon.

11:38 PM Tip of the Week
If you order a large pasta salad, make sure to ask whether large means larger than your head.
10:41 PM On Libraries
I overheard someone today describe how they were cheating a library out of overdue fines by using false information. This is a little disturbing. I mean, come on people! If you're going to rip someone off, at least have the decency to do it to someone who doesn't let you use their stuff for free.
