In truth, I have been put to blogging shame by my good friend Em Peneau, who has taken to the medium like a duck to water. At C’est la vie, she has consistently produced engaging book reviews and chronicles of her life in academia, along with her thoughts on the world at large. One of my favourite recent posts was of a story she wrote with her father when she was a child.
I’m getting feeds reloading back as far as 2004. They’re isolated so far, but include the feed for this site as well as AFP and Slashdot. I may have to look in to using another feedreader.
Microwave an instant chocolate cake in a mug. Tiny Planet accepts no responsibility for things going wrong or it tasting like crap, though.
People are giving up their pets because of the credit crunch.
Blogger gets 20 years for posting a picture of Burma’s military leader.
Dirt + manure = energy.
Meanwhile, the Maldives is trying to buy land in case the islands are swamped by rising sea levels.
Why would you shock yourself for the sake of good posture?
I’m swamped but hope to do a photo post or two over the weekend. In the meantime:
Does the Border matter in a time of recession? (Slugger O’Toole)
Australian plan to kill the internet (Mr Angry)
Bailout, schmailout (Jeff Jarvis)
I’m not the only one. Techcrunch has been having similar problems with its feeds, although I must report that as of late last night I have been getting error messages only next to one or two, and, although the red exclamation mark of woe is still there, these have still updated until today.
I’m having a lot of problems with my subscriptions: feeds that show as active when I click on them in the edit panel aren’t coming through. Looks like I’m going to have to resubscribe to just over a dozen, ranging from Damien Mulley to The National to Dilbert. It’s not the end of the world, but it is rather annoying.
