Just A Delicious Suggestion

leave a comment »

Okay, I do know that all of you read a lot and I am quite happy about the fact. But please stop polluting your main blog feed with your Delicious subscriptions. I am sick of going through feeds that often have nothing else but endless bulleted lists of “links for blah-blah-blah”. If I want to know what you are bookmarking, I’d subscribe to your Delicious feed, not your blog feed. Thank you.

Lean Mean Geek-lings!

If I were Madge, I’d be very scared. After supermodels and Hollywood starlets, the geeks are now taking to the weight loss/dieting regime by the dozen. Scott Adams offers a different take and suggests that we are better off with growing a goatee or stretch pants.

Vox = v 3.0?

with one comment

I cannot understand what the world+dog is raving about Vox, the new service from Typepad Sixapart. It looks a lot like what would have looked like if it got the much-needed uprgade — with categories, tags and post access levels. Strangely, what most power bloggers panned was about its simplicity. Apparently, simple is the new cool now.

“Oops… the system was unable to perform your operation (error code 007).
Please try again in a few seconds”

That is how Gmail greeted me this morning when I tried to open one of my labels/folder/whateveritiscalled.

Gmail spreads labels over clusters?

Update: The label holds all my emails forwarded and filtered from another Gmail account. The ‘sent items’ folder in that account does also throws up the same error. Which makes me wonder.. hmm..
