This is a "forward slash", or just a "slash": /
This is a "backslash": \

Every time someone tells me to go to "www dot example dot com backslash something", a little piece of me dies.

End of day goodness…

A little treat for everyone at the end of a long work day (mine was, anyway)…

Goats in Trees. Karen doesn’t seem to think this is as amazing as I do, but it is.

Still look for that RSS aggregator to use on your machine? Want to know when we update our blog? Look no further: RSS Owl. It’s head and shoulders above any other free solution I’ve tried, is written in Java so it’s cross-platform, and allows imported bloglists in OPML format so you don’t have to re-subscribe to everything. (Looks like you still have to tell it to auto update feeds) It also features:

  • tabbed feed panes!
  • Allows you to use any browser internally, so you don’t have to view links in stupid IE
  • Tons of smart options to configure
  • Good filtering and searching
  • Did I mention it’s free?

So. If any of that makes you excited, or if you understand it at all, you’ll know you need to check this thing out.

Branching out a bit on the blog, but I’ve found this little guy to be so useful over the past week I figured I should mention it. I’m a little late to the party on this – it’s been around for a few months – but I only stumbled on it last week: I’m referring to the so-called PocketMod. It’s hard to explain, easy to use – I recommend immediately throwing one together using the online application, printing it, folding it, and seeing how cool it is. Then keep it handy for a week and start jotting things down in it – I use mine primarily for two lists: shopping (both hardware and otherwise), and a to-do list. The front cover is a weekly schedule by day, the back is a month calendar, and the last two pages are year-long calendars. So useful. And totally customizable – there are pages you can add for storyboarding, music notation, note-takeing, etc! Give it a try and let me know what you think.
