a couple of great articles on the issues involved with gslb. if anyone has any idea how akamai's freeflow/edgesuite claims to provide dc failover in around a minute i'd live to know - dns trickery or route convergence?

from a php disucssion at work: "If you're willing to continually do the heavy lifting of ensuring that your version of Smalltalk96 on Rails stays concurrent with the latest patches". omg, how awesome would that be?

ryan and eran did this great tv interview from last night's launch party. remember, users are losers.

2nd November, 9:49 am

salt pointed out onlife, a freeware pseudoclone of devonthink. it's on the border line between awesome and frighteding. i'm not sure i want to know how much time i spend in notepad. osx only, though

1st November, 9:25 pm

a nice link from the lul maps pages is this collection of maps including a couple of accurate line maps. niice.

1st November, 9:12 pm

some mapping stuff from matt jones - a list of london underground map resources (including a couple from me) and a map of the uk's motorways visualised in harry beck style. the latter would make a nice poster. time to break out the tabloid color laser at work i suspect.

1st November, 8:57 pm

saft looks like a nice set of safari extensions. why hadn't i seen that before?
