St. Patty's Day Linkdump
My favourite St. Patty's Day T-Shirt seen at the mall today: A green T-shirt with a shamrock and the words: "I'm a drinker, not a fighter".
BTW, I now have a Linkdump AppleScript for Firefox too. It iterates through the tabs of the frontmost window and builds links for each of them, then makes a new post in MarsEdit and sets the body of the new post to that HTML. If you want it, and/or my similar script for linkdumping NetNewsWire tabs, let me know.
I'd make a Safari version, but I don't use it anymore. I'll probably give Safari another shot when Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard comes out.
Oh, and Steve, guess how I run my Firefox Linkdump script? Using QuickSilver... yup, I've switched from Launchbar as per your recommendation. I'm still not completely sold on it, but for now, it's doing what I was using Launchbar for, and it seems faster, so for now, QS stays.
davidbau.com: Python String Functions - make sure to read the comments, I agree that while it may be "cool" that Python can adapt itself to that syntax, it's not a good solution to nearly any Python programming problem or software design problem.

I found that link completely by accident looking on Google for something completely unrelated to programming (and nails and stealing, btw! ;-)).

Should I go to WWDC 2007 or OSCON 2007? WWDC has student scholarships... I can't find any information on the OSCON site about student rates, but going to Portland for a week would be a lot cheaper than San Francisco... then again, OSCON would probably cost about the same after paying for a ticket. So which is a better use of my time and money?

I shouldn't even give that post publicity by linking to it but I think it's so ridiculous it's worth reading for the comic value alone. It's like asking if cooking is dead because frozen TV dinners have become so delicious and heathy.

I love it. The utter despair of dealing with IE as a web developer is one of the reasons I decided to go back to school (seriously). I definitely agree with the idea that IE support for web sites/applications should be an explicit and optional line item in estimates.
