Jim and James (of HotOrNot fame) have added blogs to their ratings (btw, is this blog hot or not? ;)). There are some funny parody sites, like Am I President or not, Am I Annoying or not, and even AMI BIOS or not. I wonder what site will be next? Hint, is still available as well as and

My boss once said to me that if people will carry all waste they produce for at least one day it will be very educational experience for all of us. There are such people. From Burning Man F.A.Q: "Q. What about trash disposal? Will there be a dumpster for me to toss my trash into on the way out of Black Rock City? A. NO. Nein, negatory, absolutely not under any circumstances. Did we mention that we have NO trash disposal? You are responsible for removing all waste you bring into Black Rock City. This includes cigarette butts, boa feathers, pistachio shells and couches." For those who are interested: "Burning Man is an exercise in radical self-sufficiency. You have to bring all you need to survive, and then some. Some people bring only the basics; others bring everything including the kitchen sink." This year (2002) the dates are Monday, August 26th to Monday, September 2nd.

Jon Udell on Radio deployment descriptors. "I was reminded of: (1) how much non-default configuration I depend on, (2) how little I remembered having done that configuration, and (3) how hard it was to articulate, then transfer, that configuration." I'm glad I'm not the only one who struggles with custom configuration. I'm doing installations for my co-workers and would like to be able to set up proper configuration with minimal effort. The easiest way that I found is probably to use radioStartupCommands.txt file, which is executed at every startup. The problem is that weblogData.root (which is where the most preferences are stored) is not opened when radioStartupCommands.txt is executed, so I need to open the database myself in radioStartupCommands.txt. Any ideas on how to do that? Ideally I would like to have "Save configuration as" button that will create that file with ALL setting I currently have, so I can enable/disable some of them and update Radio configuration. One more Radio question: How to update templates without republishing the whole site?
