A pair of science stories from the BBC: Giant telescopes linked to create a giant interferometer. The International Space Station moves to a higher orbit to avoid the threat of a tool dropped by a spacewalking astronaut.
I posted this yesterday, but it’s worth another mention today:
“We’d like to see two specific projects come from this. An editor that runs on Unix, perhaps emacs or vi, that through Apache, allows a user to create and edit stories and update the home page of a Manila site in the same natural way that Radio works with Manila. The other project is to write a .NET application that allows the CLR to be a great editor for Manila text in the same way…
“All you’ll have to do is emulate the functionality in other scripting environments. Then we’ll have a very important kind of interop, between writers on all these platforms.”
It’s important to note that you can do this with XML-RPC too. You’re not tied to SOAP. The RPC interface to Manila is identical, no matter which protocol you decide to use.

We got a new puppy a little over two weeks ago. He likes to eat chew-toys, stuffed animals, and any kind of people-food he can get his paws on, no mater how repulsive. He’s quiet most of the time, but he doesn’t trust strangers, and sometimes he barks at them – especially men.
He’s happy, and healthy. (Let’s hope he stays that way.)
Oh, and by the way, his name is Ryan.
