Back before I took a position at Sagestone (now NuSoft Solutions), I used to travel to Boston on a weekly basis. I stayed right downtown, and everything was within walking distance. We used to walk up to the North End for dinner on a regular basis. For t… more »

Where's the Global Warming When You Want It?

posted on 11/27/05 at 12:58:55 am by Joel Ross

I'm not sure I ever bought into the idea that Global Warming is caused by what we do - it's pretty arrogant to assume that something we're doing can affect a planet that's survived for millions of years. But that's not what I'm talking about here. I jus… more »

Yup. I've been a long supporter of Newsgator Outlook Edition (NGOE), and have posted about it quite a bit in the past. I watched as two bloggers I highly respect switched to RSS Bandit and Feed Demon. I even tried out Feed Demon around that time when NGO… more »

Jason Salas posted a while back about another Memeorandum-like service called Blogniscient. I've been looking at it over the past few weeks, and it looks pretty good. Jason even got them to add RSS feeds. One thing that I see that they have that some of… more »

Didn't Make It To PDC?

posted on 2005-10-04 at 10:20:48 by Joel Ross

Either did I. But I'm not sweating it too much - especially not now! Mike Swanson gives us details that he's putting together four DVDs full of PDC goodness, but that's not the best part. No, not only do they have 250 hours of content, but they're going… more »
