Tommorow is SysAdmin day

Thursday, July 27th, 2006

Everybody, be extra nice to your system administrator tommorow, and shower us with lots of presents. 😉

I’m taking the day off in celebration, not really… My day off tommorow just happens to be coincidental.

My new RSS reader…

Wednesday, July 26th, 2006

Well i’be been an onfolio user for quite some time and microsoft bought them recently which pretty much kills the idea of them supporting firefox ever again.  So for the last week, i’ve been trying out new RSS readers.  Most have them have been online as I currently use 3 diffferent computers and would like my feeds accesible wherever I go.  The 2 front runners have been Rojo and Bloglines.

I have resisted bloglines for some time as I just can’t stand the looks of the interface.  step in Rojo.  Rojo is incredibly pretty and I really like what they are doing in the the social aspect of a blog reading, taggingn, etc.  Only one problem, there aren’t any shortcuts to quickly run through my feeds.  Reading feeds with a mouse can be extremely time consuming.  So i’m giving bloglines another shot and have been using it all day.

Does anybody have know of a way to change the interface of bloglines and make it look less circa 2000?  Right now the looks are my really only complaint with bloglines as the shortcuts they have provided make it easy to blast through my feeds efficiently.

Monday, July 10th, 2006

My vacation is coming to an end tommorow as we drive back to chicago.  I am thouroughly refreshed and relaxed. I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things.  North Carolina has been wonderful, but I’m missing my dog and cat.  I’ve been gone long enough.  I should be back tommorow evening and am looking forward to spending the rest of my vacation back home hanging out with some friends.

See you soon…Hope everyone’s still reading.
