Yes, I’m still on a blog hiatus for a while, but I’m going to take a quick break from it to let you know that I’m experimenting with something new. It’s from my Google Reader and it’s my shared items. In short, it’s random blog posts that I find interesting all mashed into one page. It even has an RSS feed for it too. So if you want to read some random-but-interesting-to-me posts, hop on over.
UPDATE: I’ve added a module in the sidebar to display the seven latest headlines I’m sharing. I call it “Good Now”.
Man it seemed to take forever but Google Reader finally improved the one feature that I really thought it to be lacking in.
One of the features that I really liked about Bloglines is emailing an RSS article out to someone. The email received was nice and clean, formatted for your liking. When Google Reader came out, their email was just plain text that looked like garbled gook.
Today I noticed that they had the word “(updated)” by the email icon. And wouldn’t you know it? The email looks great! Finally! Thanks Google Reader!
NOTE: I’m am talking about a feature it already had. I still think it’s a crime that Google Reader doesn’t use Google Search!
Almost forgot my Thailand video of the day for today! I’ve got one more for tomorrow. Today is showing how they loom silk. Is that the right word? They’ve already harvested the silk and made colors. Here she is making a fabric. She changes colors to make a pattern on the fabric.
Do not add to indoor pollution. When smoke levels are high, do not use anything that burns, such as candles, fireplaces, or gas stoves. Do not vacuum, because vacuuming stirs up particles already inside your home. Do not smoke, because smoking puts even more pollution into the air. (emphasis added)
Did you read that Babe? The internets say I shouldn’t vacuum. My hands are tied.
