Kay said some nice things about Flock so I thought I better take it for a spin. It was also time to investigate a replacement for the Sage RSS reader in Firefox I have been having some odd problems there lately and my first attempt at a replacement with Orangoo was an interesting experience. And it was also time to tidy up my bookmarks and make use of my del.icio.us account.

Things have been a little quiet round here lately, mainly because I write most of my posts on the uninteruppted 35 minute bus ride to and from work. However in the last week the rides have been spent investigating RSS aggregators and testing them on my trusty powerbook.
What I am looking for is to take feeds from a variety of sources and put them into a single feed or feeds.
The tailwind that made the morning commute relatively easy had strengthen, so the ride home was into a nasty headwind and what usually takes an hour forty was just under two hours. And that was only because I managed to tuck in behind two riders who felt sorry for me for the last 5kms along the freeway bike path.
Get in the door, put the kettle on …..
After five weeks off a bike with a broken collarbone, I finally got back on the road bike on Saturday, So this morning my bright idea was to commute to work, hey it is only 43.5km each way….
WE05 closing party gossip, well I don’t think there was any real good gossip, as long Tantek Celik gets to his surfing lesson today. Otherwise I will be in trouble from Amber after telling her I would look after him. I last saw Tantek in a taxi on his way back to the hotel from Kings Cross, unfortunately he was with Doug Bowman and Doug was the only one the King Cross spruikers was trying to get into their sleazy night clubs.
