Has CNET Gone Crazy? · CNET has started producing a syndication feed that is not RSS 0.9, 1.0, 2.0, or Atom. I guess the old aphorism “Never ascribe to malice that which can be explained by stupidity” applies here. Mark Pilgrim wields the cluestick. [Update: John Roberts of CNET writes to tell us that pointer was a to rogue example of an old feed that escaped into their RSS page accidentally; they’ve since cleaned up. That’s a relief. Apologies to CNET for the grief, but no apologies for raising a hue and cry at apparent bad behavior.]
3,397,120 Pixels · I got my first piece of Sun hardware today, a 24.1-Inch Flat Panel Monitor. It runs at 1920x1200, and plugged into my 15" PowerBook whose screen is 1280x854, that gives me, well, a whole lot o’ pixels. I haven’t really figured out how to use ’em all effectively just yet, but it’s a nice problem to have. Mind you, when I lean back at my chair and look up at this horking thing, it occurs to me to say “On-screen!” in a clipped English accent and see if I can get the captain of that Romulan Warbird up there.
’nother XML Geek · James Tauber has stumbled into the blogosphere. He’s a smart guy who understands this stuff as well as anyone; worth keeping an eye on.
