5. kernel-janitor-discuss : 13:16

Categories: None -- Permalink
The kernel-janitor-discuss archives on http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?forum_id=2314 seem to be spam-filled. I'm tempted to work on the balancing-functions task, as that doesn't require too much hardware knowledge, but don't know whom to check for sync. Besides, I'm working with an ancient list.

Gmane is better. http://news.gmane.org/group/gmane.linux.kernel.janitors/last=/force_load=t

Oh, that's because it's now kernel-janitors@osdl.org

4. Open source for school projects : 12:45

Categories: None -- Permalink
I think the idea of using open source for class projects as suggested by http://www.kegel.com/academy/opensource.html is a good thing. The page also has [[http://www.kegel.com/academy/opensource.html][Contributing to Open Source Projects HOWTO]].

3. Prompting : 09:26

Categories: None -- Permalink
Although unconditional prompting requires an extra keystroke, it makes blogging more consistent (no need to think about if you're on a date page or the right wiki page) and it allows you to blog to a different page with cross-references. If people complain loudly, I guess I'll put it back.


2. Mirrored blogs : 09:21

Categories: RememberEl#7 -- Permalink
I'm thinking of making it easier for me to blog to my http://www.advogato.org/diary/ . I should look at the blogging Emacs modules to see how (or if) they handle offline operation. I think I can do it like e-mail - queue unsent items in a file, then delete as sent. If all else fails, I can write it as a normal e-mail module, then have a Perl script on the other end upload the e-mailed stuff to http://www.advogato.org .

I guess this belongs more to remember.el than planner.el, as I want to mirror upon remember. =)


1. Blogging contests? : 01:43

Categories: None -- Permalink
As requested by Marcelle, have checked out blog competition as he is in running for Best Philippine Blog - but by very long shot.

Amused as went through some of blogs and find them more of journals - perfectly valid in context of contest, but not really something fit into my day. Hmm. What blogs do I read, anyway? Friends' for catching up. Slashdot for some news. Occasional Japanese blog for kanji.

Why do I blog? Mainly to remember, as M-x remember in Emacs is what I use to store snippets of potentially useful information. Public blog side-effect of data capture on local hard disk. Not my fault people find pages like CookOrDie or OnLove funny. Actually, occasionally write tongue-in-cheek.

Also blog in case Google's listening. Would like to help capture knowledge. Sometimes snippets also useful for other people on my site.

In fit of shameless plugging, have nominated own blog purely out of kicks.

Should have probably voted for Marcelle's blog instead, but was feeling mildly piqued as own blog had not been nominated yet.

So - will shamelessly plug. Want to help shock heck out of not-quite-techie crowd and make near-incomprehensible, link-filled wikiblog "Best Philippine Weblog" or whatnot? Make sure your spam filters are all right, then click on link to vote.

Should put it in SideBar for more fun.
