My friend Joe, who I’ve known since I was about 5 years old has started blogging.

Markup Styles

Friday, February 18th, 2005

Along with the new design, I’m installing some WP plugins, to try to improve things around here. The first one I’m trying out is called Markdown and it allows me to use a markup style simpler than HTML to write my posts. This is very nice, but frankly, I’m sick of learning new markup styles.

Seriously, enough is enough. I’ve going to have to find a way to use fewer of these, especially among the set of (yawiki, media wiki, markdown and humanetext)- its jut too much to try to remember.

Since I updated to 1.5, I decided a new design was in order. This new design is really just a derivative of the wonderful Kubrick, which is now the default for WP.

Improved Google Similar Bookmarlet

I made an improvement on my Google Bookmarklet Just drag this link to your bookmarks bar:

Google Press Center: Zeitgeist

Wednesday, February 16th, 2005

I was just alerted to the fact that Google has updated their Zeitgeist to include specific Zeitgeists for other countries. In particular, look here at Ireland’s Zeitgeist.

I find it interesting that the most popular men are of several nationalities (Irish and British for the ones I recognize), whereas the most popular women are all Americans. Hmm.
