Sometimes I Can’t Help Myself (Rant)

After reading Tarus’s post, I couldn’t help posting my own response to Matt Asay’s CNET blog. I know I shouldn’t rise to the bait, but sometimes, you just have to get it out. I was as frustrated as Tarus after reading it… Feel free to read it yourself, but don’t click the ads, click mine instead! (cough, sorry)

Anyways, CNET’s lovely comment system apparently doesn’t believe in carriage returns, you’re only supposed to post in sound-bites I guess. 😉 So, I’m going to repost my response here, in a form that looks less like a Giant Blob o’ Text (and with a few changes for emphasis). Also, in my original comment I accidentally wrote “free-loaders” once instead of “free-riders.”

I have read a few of your previous blog posts with interest, but I can only assume that this time you’ve gone the way of Dvorak and are posting sensational ideas for the purposes of ad revenue for CNET. It’s the only . . . → Read More: Sometimes I Can’t Help Myself (Rant)

Web Site for Raccoon Fink Music

I’ve set up a separate site for my music, since it’s a little off-topic for this blog. Major announcements will still be posted here as well, but I intend to post other news, information about releases, previews, and other things relating to my music to the other site instead.

Feel free to check out music.raccoonfink.com for all the latest happenings.

Thanks!

First, I’ve been spearheading the OpenNMS involvement in Summer of Code. Aside from one unfortunate incident things have been going well. I’m really looking forward to getting to know our students and seeing what they can come up with. It will be a learning experience for all of us. =)

We’re also starting to gear up towards another beta on the road to OpenNMS 1.6. We’ve already got a bunch more bugs finished off, but also plenty to do still.

If you haven’t noticed, my blog looks a little bit different. I’d been limping along with pretty much unchanged templates from upgrade after upgrade of Movable Type since version 3.1 or so.

Weird.

Am I the only one who didn’t know Steve Jobs has a blog? It’s strange how the same way I off-hand mention Fink, he’s off-hand talking about selling his apartment to Bono and stuff. Again I say. Weird. But kind of cool. 🙂 [Update:] Damn, I’m like one of those people who thinks I really can make money fast from home. Guess I should have looked a little closer. Thanks for pointing it out, Joachim. I’ll slink into my hole now. Perhaps I’ll post some news so I can make this scroll off my front page. Yeah, that’s it.

The World as a Blog

This is pretty cool. They watch blog updates which have a GeoURL in them, and dynamically display when they get updated. And here’s another fun one, a fantasy stock market page where the currency is blog popularity.
