Many broken links

Looking down through older posts here, I realize that almost all of them point to groups of photos in my 'Gallery' installation, and the links are all broken because I re-arranged that into sub-albums for the different years. --sigh--


Just got pointed to this web site:
curia : bowdoin life and culture

Looks like it is fairly new, but will be interesting to see how it plays out. What really caught our attention around here is a recent article on Library Etiquette!

Twitter from the command line

This is kinda neat - A short tutorial on using the command line URL tool curl to interact with the twitter API. It was pretty easy to write a little shell script that would post the argument to the command to twitter. From there it would be pretty easy to send all kinds of stuff that way.

Checking out Twitter

I'd signed up for twitter a long time ago -- in that first round of social networking exploration with mwms. I didn't have a cell phone at the time, and twitter never really made any sense to me. Then Molco got into it, and by that time I did have a phone with text messaging, and suddenly I started to get it. It was fun -- she was at SXSW and I was at NERCOMP, and we were making comments to each other.
So now I've expanded my horizons a bit, and have started 'following' some other people in the library technology world who I know off, but haven't met... The jury is still out on this part. In some ways it seems like a non stop slow motion chat room, where you don't hear both sides of many of the conversations... But I suppose once you've molded your list of followers / followees into shape, it could be interesting.

Testing Scribefire

This is a test post to make sure my Scribefire settings are right. I assume they are, but you never know. And I could test with a real post, but, what the heck - this one is already written.
