I've updated the archives menu to turn over the year. Apparently you cannot comment out items in cmsPrefs. Let's see if I can create a top level node and comment it out. That worked, now I am going to try an idea for a different format for the archive index.#

Blogging Again#

Notes From The Cave has been the title for a blog I've written since I discovered blogging in late 1999. In 2008 I moved it to WordPress, and I was writing blog posts there up until I started using Fargo for my blogging. Over the last year I have been updating it by pulling in updates I make to Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and Pocket via If This Then That, and the result is a consolidation of all that I share on the Internet. I am now sending new items from this blog over there too, but as you will see, I am handling posts without titles with a default title of "From my blog:" but if there is a title, such as with this post, then it will follow the semi-colon, like you see here. #

The stream format I use for this site does not provide titles unless I create them in the manner such as I have done for this post. #

By the way, Dave has been working on another iteration of his blogging platform that appears to do an even better job of merging blog posts with and without titles in a stream. You can see the results in his blog, while you can see what appears to be the server side over here. #

I really like the tabbed/panel approach Dave has on Scripting.com. I would love to be able to do it here.#

Personal computing is not about a device, its about a mashup#

Business Insider says robots are the next best thing, and defines robots as "characterized by dozens of devices working on your behalf, invisibly, all the time, to make your life more convenient." In a blog post I wrote five years ago, I proposed that personal computing ought to be define as such: personal computing = hardware + software (apps) + Internet + intelligence. It's taken a while, but it looks like the intelligence part of the equation is getting closer to reality.#

How do Tobii Eye Trackers work?#

Desktop Neo – rethinking the desktop interface for productivity. I really like what I see here, because I am one of those people who always run apps with Windows maximized, which is probably why I like using tablets. The incorporation of touchscreen or touchpad gestures for navigation and eye tracking is also innovative, if it works.#

Migrating To A New Server.#

Hello world, we are running via a new server! #
