What's New, What's Next

It’s long overdue, but I finally donated some money toward helping the victims of the recent tsunami. Click the banner below if you’d like to donate to the American Red Cross. Or, if you blog and participate in one of those snazzy revenue programs, you can donate your earnings via BlogAid. Or, if you’re a waferbaby fan, you can bid on a limited edition t-shirt (all proceeds are going toward relief efforts). Or, Apple has a list of worthy organizations you can give your money to and Amazon has a special donation page.

Let’s see… what else? Upgraded to the latest version of Movable Type before the winter vacation along with the latest version of Markdown and Smarty Pants. All good stuff.

Also, since I’m back on public transportation after a nine month hiatus, I have time to read again. (Yes, I’ve heard that it is possible to read at home or in other pockets of free time but it just doesn’t work for me.) To celebrate the readingness, I added a little progress bar to the Books box on the right. It won’t move very fast but it’s cool.

I may have to break down and write up my thoughts on the Macworld rumorfest soon. So look for that in the coming days. I was happy to see the price cuts to the displays this morning. They’re perpetually inching closer to affordability. =-)
