Cringely writes a great article shedding some light on Microsoft's attempt to hurt Java using its own legal defeat. Plus a little XP raw sockets info for a bonus.
articles from August 2001
A decent Salon Tech article about the problems with Hotmail / Passport / .NET.
Now that I have a spiffy black machine, I needed a matching monitor, naturally.
Unbelievable. After several weeks of unbearable heat, it's 66 degrees right now. Ahhhhh. There's a thunderstorm, but at least it's cooler.
Download titus-livy, my eighth theme for PHPWebSite. The screenshot is huge, sorry 'bout that.
**Special note: the themes here work with PHPWS 0.7.9, not 0.7.10. We'll be working out the distribution of themes soon for different releases over at the Theme Forge, so stop on by.
A spiffy little tool for folks who need seamlessly tiling pictures: PhotoSeam. You can do this in Photoshop, but this tool has a stack of timesaving features that make it worth having. Thanks to digitexturia.com for the tip.
I'll be taking a short break from theming in order to help sort out some of the bugs in PHPWebSite 0.7.10. More theme madness is brewing in the dark recesses of the laboratory, though....
I got my LCD display Monday, and got it up and running Tuesday night. It's sweet. I really think I want to put it on a *nix box, because I think LCDproc or matrix-orbital.pm will be vastly easier to use than most of the Windoze progs I've seen so far.
Download claudian, my seventh theme for PHPWebSite. The screenshot is a GIF, which doesn't really do the gradients justice.
Download tacitus, my sixth theme for PHPWebSite. Photoshop users will find something hauntingly familiar about this one.....
Download cato, my fifth theme for PHPWebSite. It's shiny.
My site that runs PHPWebSite is now open for business. In case you were wondering what the heck all the PHPWS themes were doing on a site that's not running PHPWS, I was working up theme skillz for my neighborhood site, north-park.org, which is running PHPWS.
Download suetonius, my fourth theme for PHPWebSite.
Note: this theme was heavily inspired by a TrueType font called bauhaus sketch, which you'll want to grab while you're here.
Special thanks to Robert at HiTechMODs, and Henry at Matrix Orbital.
