Google Gears For Mac

June 6, 2007

DO NOT try and install Google Gears with anything OTHER than Firefox (you may even have to specifically ALLOW Firefox to install from Gears.Google.com).

Gears apparently is NOT friendly with Safari, the nightly builds of WebKit, with the new Camino or with Opera.

Figures. Isn’t Dr. Schmidt on Apple’s Board of Directors? Didn’t I hear that somewhere?

The Banner is Done!

August 3, 2006

OK the banner/masthead of the g-WH!Z blog is now complete. Drop in and let me know what you think. Lots of obscure application logos in there. How many can you name from memory?

Watching 200+ Feeds (Again)

June 21, 2006

Ever do battle with creeping ivy? It burrows just enough to sustain it's march across your property. And so it is with RSS. So many people (Scoble, Zawodny, etc… ok, so two that I can name!) were on about trimming their feeds back to something manageable. Sounded good. So, I did that too.

Pared down from about 500 feeds to about 20. That was about two months ago and yikes! A few of them are back and a whole lot of fresh content (podcasts too) are taking up the void.

I hope when Mac OS X 10.5 (aka Leopard) comes out that Safari gets a pumped up RSS reader and BitTorrent client. Otherwise, I'm going to seriously mull switching to Opera which already has both. there's a BitTorrent client. [Ed. Safari's got a great little RSS reader… just needed to figure out how to bend it to my will.]
