There's a folk song with the line "let the toast go free," to which an assembled crowd of singers will often stand up and cry "free the toast!" in response.

I've been spending the morning going through email, reading feeds, tweaking some of the issues raised in the site improvements page, and trying to rock getting things done. In the mean time I have a few links to share.

  • The Everyday Lives Of Video Game Developers
  • The Price of Free
  • This article, and the one before, are both open on my "things to read list. Imagine that's what I'm doing this afternoon.
  • Branchable - ikiwiki (like the wiki that powers this site) hosting service, based on publicly available tools. I kinda want to set up a branchable instance.
  • Pybtex - a python/yaml drop in replacement for BibTeX, which is really cool, and I suspect that this will probably be my next citation management tool. I've been looking for one for a long time.
  • Kindle Feeder - a tool to crawl your feeds and move them to your kindle. I'm currently sifting through my feeds and seeing what might make sense to read on the kindle. Might as well, and the automatic delivery makes a lot of sense.
  • I played with ehsell for the first time today in response to this post, and I have to say that I really like it, and it's much more intuitive and usable than I thought it'd be. I like the idea of being able to write shell functions in emacs-lisp. As an aside the post is, I think, an example of really great casual technical writing.
