3) Advenio Software - Mac OS X Development: Jim : Advenio Software: SQLGrinder (http://www.advenio.com/sqlgrinder/index.html) -- "Query. Browse. Be more productive." "Advenio SQLGrinder is a native Mac OS X SQL editor and developer tool that makes your database development easier." I find development is easier when I don't have to write SQL at all. And no, that doesn't mean I use a GUI database editor/browser alongside my ASP/JSP/CFM/PHP code instead, it means I use something that writes the SQL for me. And no, that doesn't mean it puts the SQL into my source files for me, it means there is no SQL code in my source code, anywhere.

7) Multitasking is counterproductive and thrashing: CNN.com Study: Multitasking is counterproductive (http://www.cnn.com/2001/CAREER/trends/08/05/multitasking.study/index. html)

Finally, a study to back up what I always told my managers at CEISS --
I cannot handle working on 6 different projects at one time and do work that meets my quality expectations under strict deadlines.

I work best when I'm working on 1 or 2 tasks/projects.

Actually, Hal Jorch (http://www.google.com/search? hl=en&safe=off&q=hal+), the first manager I had at CEISS, really understood this. (He didn't stay at CEISS very long -- hint hint).

When I told him I was being asked to do too many things at once he taught me about thrashing (http://www.google.com/search? q=cache:jWZKEJgzuzk:www.whatis.com/definition/0,289893,sid9_gci214055, 00.html+), which is what happens when a multitasking operating system starts spending more time switching between tasks than performing the tasks themselves. He said it applied to people every bit as much as computers.

8) BBC SPORT | WORLD ATHLETICS | Edmonton : Black and gold, new to old: A great article about some of the attractions in Edmonton. What they don't mention is Edmonton is one of the best cities in North America for cultural festivities. Known as the City of Champions, City of Volunteers and the City of Festivals, Edmonton is a great place to visit.

The article mentions the Muttart Conservatory (http://www.gov.edmonton.ab.ca/comm_services/city_op_attractions/mutta rt/), which is where Cheryl and I were married!

10) BBC News | AMERICAS | US rejects germ warfare plan: The United States has refused to sign up to an international agreement designed to enforce a ban on the use of biological weapons. Washington's representative to the United Nations-sponsored talks in Geneva said the US was unable to support the draft accord - the result of years of debate - because it would not achieve its goals and would hurt American interests.

The message that goes out now is that the world does not care about biological weapons - the most dangerous kind of all

Graham Pearson Biological weapons expert Donald Mahley said: "In our assessment, the draft protocol would put national security and confidential business information at risk."

11) Coke Machine Accidents: Jim : ( quotes several paragraphs before finally saying ) This is just too stupid.

I : donot agree - Can I compare this to seat belt requirements... just because the chances of someone getting killed by a machine is less... doesnot mean we should not think about these issues seriously !

14) Weblogging: Another Kind of Website: One day in mid-March 2000 Raymond Yee of the Interactive University [1] thought it would be a good idea to buy and experiment with Manila, a web server application capable of supporting literally thousands of weblog websites. A bargain-priced education license was purchased, and Catherine Yoes downloaded and installed it on a rather ordinary NT server. Within weeks the IU experienced a revolutionary change in thinking about what a website is, how they're hosted, what they're used for, how they're built, and who owns them. A year and a half later all of the IU's websites are being produced using weblog technology, our team communications and sharing has been vitally enhanced, a number of our team members are regularly writing on the web, as are many of our University/K-12 projects and the K-12 teachers we work with.

17) The Register: DesktopX - killer eye candy or the great Windows desktop liberator?: Jim : I've been a Stardock customer since, oh, 1995? Day 1, anyway. I bought their first product and probably the majority of the products they've ever released. Object Desktop (ControlCenter in particular) totally rocks. It's been on every PC desktop (OS/2 or Windows) I've used (home and work) regularly since I first saw it.

21) WebDAV filewriter for Frontier : Jim : 'It's a shame (from my POV, probably not theirs) that UserLand diverged off their ContentServer path (which I think is the best CMS tool they ever made) when they decided to focus on writing and weblogging tools instead of sophisticated CMSs.'

23) Distributed membership and preferences: Membership and preferences standards are a hot topic among independent developers, because of Microsoft's Passport, which is in rapid deployment now. Developers are now faced with a choice -- support Microsoft's membership system, and thereby feed customers to them, or develop an open, clonable and decentralized system, so that membership is a competitive space, not owned by one or two large companies.

29) Encompass Magazine, Charting a Sustainable Course - February / March 2001: Jim : "What an exciting concept! I would love to see this happen everywhere. Cars are the stinking dinosaur of the 20th century. Leaving the airport yesterday, I remember thinking to myself, "there's no way you pry the cars away from these people". And you couldn't take my car away from me right now. Life totally sucks down here without a car. The urbanized world will have to be redesigned to accomodate a car-free lifestyle but I think it would be more than worth it. I think it's critical for the future of our planet's environment, the environment our children and grand-children will have to breathe and play in."
