I'm actually making progress on my todo list! Yay. And had a few productive conversations, and made two count 'em two useful decisions. And I took the world's slowest and coldest ride today; it was 40o; I'm still frozen, three hours later. I think I'll take the rest of the day off. But first, this:
Of all the things which are crappy in Windows Explorer - and there are many - the crappiest is the way it manages image thumbnails. The whole feature is tectonically slow, buggy, and hard to use. The filmstrip is a joke; it could be useful, but it is just way too slow and buggy. Really I cannot see how they whole thing ever shipped. Whenever I try to use thumbnails in Explorer I toy with the idea of writing an app from scratch to replace it. So far I haven't done so, but I got awfully close last night...
The Onion: Sony releases new stupid piece of shit that doesn't fucking work. Hilarious :)
This looks pretty cool: LovelyCharts. Perhaps a great new way to make network diagrams. I use Visio now, and it isn't easy enough. I notice you can save them off as a PNG, too. Very cool.
