Just a list of sites that I want to take a look at, closing pages as I shut down my Linux box for a reboot. (What a terrible problem wink




  • (Perl) Article Archive; A listing of all Perl.com articles grouped by topic (including some on regular expressions)

  • Power Regexps, Part II; Simon Cozens — I think I recorded this URL somewhere, but it might be in a TWiki page in progress (only a local copy)

  • The Vim Editor: Softpanorama Western Orthodox Editors Page: VIM6 -- Folding VI-style Editor

  • Adobe SVG Zone; "Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an exciting new XML-based language for Web graphics from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)"

  • Creating a CD-ROM from an ISO image; interesting effort from SOT Linux to develop simple instructions for doing things in Linux (shades of WikiLearn?), first ones involve burning ISOs on Easy CD Creator and Nero

  • White paper?; a whitepaper I thought I wanted to read, first attempt provided 48 blank pages, try again

  • What is Enchant?; re: AbiWord; Dom Lachowicz — "Beneath the surface, Enchant is a whole lot more than that. You'll see that Enchant isn't a spell checking library at all."

  • Volker's Software; some related to burning CDs and checking md5 sums, other stuff too

  • 3D Buzz — "All of us at 3D Buzz are working hard to put together the largest listing of 3D and game development tutorials anywhere on the web."

  • FreeMind — "FreeMind is a premier free mind-mapping software written in Java. The recent development has hopefully turned it into high productivity tool. We are proud that the operation and navigation of FreeMind is faster than that of Mind Manager because of one-click "fold / unfold" and "follow link" operations."

  • TIIP Newsletter; 'This special issue of the TIIP newsletter was prompted by the report issued by the United Kingdom Commission on Intellectual Property Rights, "Integrating Intellectual Property Rights and Development Policy."'

  • xwin wiki (page on TuxRacer) — from the same site WantonDesires includes my request for a keyboard macro facility

  • xwin.org web site (sort of the XFree86 fork?) — "xwin.org is a forum for community participation in X, not a development project. The X development community needs to work together to form a government. The hope is that community governance will encourage rapid advances in the X window system"

  • Freedom or Power?; Bradley M. Kuhn and Richard M. Stallman — "The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves." -- William Hazlitt

  • SyncML; "Until now, the progress of mobile data synchronization has mostly been determined by restrictions. Data synchronization has been based on a set of different, proprietary protocols, each functioning only with a very limited number of devices, systems and data types. ... Information and personal data should be collected, processed and sent on the fly. Sponsored by Ericsson, IBM, Lotus, Matsushita, Motorola, Nokia, Openwave, Starfish Software and Symbian, and supported by hundreds of leading wireless companies, SyncML is the leading open industry standard for universal synchronization of remote data and personal information across multiple networks, platforms and devices."

  • The Game Neverending; Ludicorp — "A surreal, absurd, intelligent and humorous game of political, social and economic interactions." — haven't figured this out, don't really see anything on their site (except background / frames) — maybe konqueror can't display it?

  • Etech 2003 Stories; Tim O'Reilly; 06/06/2003 — some of the next links came from this article

  • Hydra — "Editing documents in groups can be a challenge. Versioning systems like cvs or subversion can help your group to keep a consistent copy of your document, but don't go that extra mile. Wouldn't it be great to edit the same document, live, in realtime, together with everyone in your group?"

  • TrackBack — an interesting idea: start a new page

Movable Type's TrackBack system allows peer-to-peer communication and conversations between weblogs. Imagine that you write about a movie you just saw in an entry on your Movable Type-powered weblog. Another MT weblogger reads your entry, and wants to write an entry referencing your original post. He could just comment on your weblog, but he'd like to keep the post in his own database and host it on his site.

Using TrackBack, the other weblogger can automatically send a ping to your weblog, indicating that he has written an entry referencing your original post. This accomplishes two things:

  1. On your site, you can automatically list all sites that have referenced a particular post, allowing visitors to your site to read the response on the other user's weblog.

  1. It provides a firm, explicit link between his entry and yours, as opposed to an implicit link (like a referrer log) that depends upon outside action (someone clicking on the link to your entry).

You can use TrackBack for more than just communication on particular entries, however. You can also associate TrackBack pings URLs with categories in your weblog. Whenever you post an entry to that category, the URLs you have associated will automatically be notified of your post. This allows remote sites to keep a repository of references to posts all around the web.

For example, if you run a site about Perl, you might want to provide a repository of links to Perl articles on other weblogs. Using TrackBack, you can allow other weblogs to ping a particular category in your own weblog, whenever a new entry is posted that pertains to this category.

  • Project Locate; a means to geographically specify the location of things like a web site (with GIS coordinates, embedded in HTML tags)

  • Subversion — "a compelling replacement for CVS"

  • [[http://www.press.uchicago.edu/Misc/Chicago/cmosfaq/cmosfaq.html][Chicago Manual of Style (online) — answer I fairly vehemently disagree with re: "Q. Please help. I have confusion regarding the correct spacing after periods and other closing punctuation."

  • WELCOME TO YAML.ORG; "YAML(tm) (rhymes with "camel") is a straightforward machine parsable data serialization format designed for human readability and interaction with scripting languages such as Perl and Python."
