Second-Rate Roses · It was bright to­day, very bright, and I did a Nas­tur­tium follow-up but spent time too with some jour­ney­man ros­es ...
 
Sunbeams, Trash Talk Edition · Yow, DME cranked up the num­bers at Plan­et Sun, so I got kind of buried when I went by there this morn­ing; he’s got some in­ter­est­ing stat­s. Let’s open with a nasty po­lit­i­cal joke (the best kind). New to­day, a cou­ple of Java­phone geeks speak up: Jeff Solof on the ul­tra­cool­ness of Voice Con­nect and Hinkmond Wong on wire­less snitch­ing. For a side trip in­to phi­los­o­phy, M. Mor­taza­vi talks up Dreyfus’ On the In­ter­net and makes it sound like a must-read. Fi­nal­ly, I hate it when life on­line veers in­to nas­ti­ness about per­son­al­i­ties and pol­i­tics and that kind of stuff, but hey, en­gi­neers are com­pet­i­tive, and I have no prob­lem with a lit­tle my-tech-is-better-than-yours; so in this cor­ner we have Eric Schrock se­ri­ous­ly diss­ing Lin­ux trou­bleshoot­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties. I’m sure there’ll be some­one in the oth­er cor­ner be­fore too long.
