Interesting Read. The road to a truly open laptop is fast becoming a reality.
When defining Content Types in Drupal with the Content Construction Kit you get a chance to make select dropdowns with it. It takes its key/value pairs in this format: Key|Value. The attached list will give you US States in this format. Hopefully this will save others a bit of time in preparing such a list for CCK.
David Heinemeier Hansson, inventor of Ruby on Rails (something you might of heard of) in response to Paul Graham:
Getting your company to the point where you can pay yourself a decent salary is a great milestone. You created something sustainable that doesn’t rely on spending other people’s money. You deserve to pop a bottle and celebrate!
You certainly shouldn’t curb your ambitions because of that, though. The real economic pay-off for taking the risk of starting a business is what comes after this.
So I’ve had the device for a few days, and I have to say – the iPhone was totally worth getting. I love it more than I expected I would. The UI is incredibly expressive, and if the English language doesn’t have a word to express how intuitive and user friendly it is. I treated it like a movie I wanted to see and didn’t read much about how it actually worked. As I mentioned before, I bought the iPhone early and in a direct response to my unhappiness with how well my BlackBerry Curve II synced with OS X 10.5 Leopard. Plus the calendar on the BB was so ugly that it was practically unusable. In fact for a smart phone I only used 3 applications on it: Email, which was superb and in many ways still better than the iPhone; Google Maps, where the iPhone does trump the Curve; and TwitterBerry, a decent twitter client that allowed me to send updates and read a few of the last updates of my friends, but lacked any kind of ‘Wow’ factor.
In the end, I switched to Apple’s device for the promise it offered – having one device be the center of my digital experience, and one that I would use every square inch of. And it has more than delivered.
“First, take the advisory seriously—we’re not just a bunch of n00b alarmists, if we tell you your DNS house is on fire, and we hand you a fire hose, take it.” Sage advice from Paul Vixie on the recent DNS Cache Poisoning exploit. Many systems remain unpatched, even though this security vunerability is critical and should be addressed immediately.
So many tasty features, that I’ll just the video do the talking.
