    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats me...it's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

    This is the feed for global comments (any comment made to the board); each entry has a seperate comments feed, too

Had a great little birthday…

Filed under: General — Charlie Summers @ 11:53 pm

As those of you who have been reading this blog for years know, I tend to make a big deal of my birthday anniversary. Having been born on the Ides of March, I suppose some of the pomp and circumstance is inevitable, but I’ve always liked the idea of a holiday that was special to me and not shared by everyone else, so during my adult life I’ve made it special by it being the one day of the year I don’t sit in front of a computer.

Of course, this was much easier when I started it in the early 1980’s, since a computer was something you could easily point to…something that once connected to a television set would display characters, either those generated by the user, by a program, or coming down the telephone line through a 300-baud modem. It was simple…for one day, I didn’t sit in front of the large box with a keyboard, and could say I was not using a computer for the day.

When did we all become sheep?

Filed under: General — Charlie Summers @ 11:15 am

I have to admit it, I’m a cranky old man some days. And even I admit sometimes I get myself all riled-up about something for no good reason. But lately, merchants of all stripes are really beginning to tick me off, and all for the same reason - they keep dictating to me what I must do to give them money.

Put that way, it sounds really stupid, doesn’t it?

Mark Zuckerberg ‘confused and frustrated’ by US spying

Filed under: News — Charlie Summers @ 7:22 pm

From BBC News: Mark Zuckerberg ‘confused and frustrated’ by US spying

From the article: “Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has said he has called President Barack Obama to ‘express frustration’ over US digital surveillance.”

Yeah…how dare the government get into his line of work? Only Facebook should be able to gather your private information and make use of it for advertising and profiling purposes!
