Well, not really early, but you know...
Yahoo! bought del.icio.us late last week. Between that and flickr, Yahoo has some pretty nice stuff these days. Good for them!
Good tips for using del.icio.us.
I'm now level 2 on Yahoo! Answers. Woohoo! Next up - level 3!
If you're looking to get a USB drive for someone, why not get them a weird USB drive? I can't decide which is creepier - the thumb or the Barbie whose head you rip off to plug it in. Heh.
Music: not now, thanks

At destroyerj's request, more del.icio.usness.
Last time I talked about the benefits of tagging your own bookmarks. But that's not all del.icio.us offers!
First, the front page is just a list of the 30 or so most recent bookmarks that anyone has added. This is a great place to find lots of random stuff. There's also a page of what's popular (as well as populicio.us, which has a list of the most popular links that were not bookmarked before yesterday). I've found lots of good articles and useful websites that way.
You can also look at the tags for all bookmarks. So, if you're looking for cool google-related stuff, try del.icio.us/tag/cool+google, or even just del.icio.us/tag/google. This to me is less useful than tags for your own bookmarks, but it's fun to just pick a random word and see what sites come up. Like trogdor!
Also, all of the bookmarks show how many other people have that site as a bookmark. So, I can see that someone else has bookmarked my iTunes info. I'm famous!
You can also get RSS feeds for all of those sorts of pages, if that sort of thing is your bag.
Well, that's about the cool things I can think of, so here ends the series. Play around with it for a while - I think you'll like it!
weekend, credit card, stuff

So I had a fun weekend. I was going to write about it, but wonderjess did such a good job that I'm not going to bother. Thanks!
Work's going generally well, although I'm a little stressed because I'm trying to finish the feature I'm working on by the end of this week. I think I can do it, but it's gonna be close.
ASMC rehearsal went OK tonight - I missed rehearsal on Saturday so I'm way behind on the choreography (but I picked up some of it...) I'm a little disappointed that all the songs I'm in are pretty easy, and not horribly interesting. Oh well.
So I applied for a new credit card, and the stuff came in the mail on Wednesday. However, the credit card wasn't with it! I looked everywhere for it, and David said that sometimes they send them separately from the info, which makes sense, but I figured that that couldn't possibly be the case since it didn't mention that anywhere, and it said specifically to activate your card and stuff like that. Figuring it somehow didn't get sent or whatever, I called and reported it as "lost or stolen". And then, today comes the other letter with the credit card in the mail. Grrr!
Reasons that del.icio.us is cool:
- You can store your bookmarks there and access them from anywhere. This is pretty handy (although, be careful, they're all public so anyone can see!)
- Each bookmark has tags associated with it - as many as you want. On my bookmark file at home, I have different categories, but they're kinda hard to tell apart (is that bookmark "Linux" or "reference"?) Tags solve this problem in the simplest way possible - it's both! Then when you look for the tag "linux" it's there, and it's also there when you look for "reference".
- You can search for multiple tags at once in your bookmarks to narrow things down. For example, del.icio.us/gregstoll/pictures shows all my bookmarks with the tag "pictures", and del.icio.us/gregstoll/pictures+family shows all my bookmarks that have both the tag "pictures" and the tag "family".
- The name del.icio.us is cool!
- You can have useful tags like toread and topost that keep track of what's on your reading list.
Check out my bookmarks at del.icio.us/gregstoll. Next time - ways to look at other people's bookmarks!
blah blah blah etc.

So I'm about to start going into heavy debugging mode, and before I do I wanted to post to LJ. So here I am :-)
Y'all should really check out del.icio.us - I was gonna write why it's so cool, but this article (found on del.icio.us!) does a pretty good job. You can check out my bookmarks there, too.
I'm hosting gamenight tonight, so that should be fun.
Just had a meeting that I ran that went really well, which is always a nice pick-me-up. Now if I could just figure out what the heck is going on in this code...
Going to pick up destroyerj from the airport soonish. Flights from Houston to Austin are funny - he'll be leaving Houston around the same time I leave here to pick him up :-)
ASMC rehearsal went pretty well, as djedi mentioned. Hopefully they'll rehearse my scene Thursday...
