  • accessible
  • informative

that is why I am looking forward to reading the following three articles

- Getting to know the Atom Publishing Protocol, Part 1: Create and edit Web resources with the Atom Publishing Protocol

nicely done M ;)

Life on a Screen : Introduction

this is a very experimental comic about 320*240 pixels living on a screen, YOUR screen! It will be updated on mondays, wednesdays and fridays. Don’t expect high quality drawings here (actually don’t expect drawings at all), but some strange thoughts about life, pixels and everything…

Synergy – share your keyboard and mouse

February 1st, 2006 by Richard

thanks goes to vish for pointing this out

Synergy lets you easily share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems, each with its own display, without special hardware. It’s intended for users with multiple computers on their desk since each system uses its own monitor(s).

you setup the server on the machine from which you want to use the keyboard and mouse, through a small configuration file where you specify the clients you want to connect to.

when you have done this, you just launch the client, no configuration file needed, pointing it to the server machine, and hey presto, one keyboard, one mouse, you have two or more machines under control from one keyboard and mouse!

very handy.

a strange parcel…

January 17th, 2006 by

… arrived in the post today.

it was a bag, one of those coal bag types, although smaller, with a cable tie around the top, and a couple of tags attached with string.
very strange I thought, this does not look like anything I ordered recently. curiosity eventually got the better of me, and the trusty leatherman came out, and yet again performed its duty.

Inside the bag, was a box, am amazon.com box… and it was the books I had ordered only a couple of weeks ago. I promptly put them at the top of the ‘to read’ pile.

it now stands as such (in a vaguely chronological fashion):
