Expatriot Act

The university of these days is a collection of books.

Oh Nerdly

OK I am the biggest nerd ever, but as soon as I'm done with my classes at the end of the month, I'm going to catalogue my entire home library using LibraryThing. Check it out it's really cool, you can even add del.icio.us style tags to find your books. I'm totally going to do this because, with the frequency that I lend things and the way they're increasingly taking over every room in my apartment, it would be great to know exactly what I have at all times! (Now if only I could convince Scott to do his. I think if I had to do his it would have to qualify as field placement, the boy is a library onto himself.)

And because Firefox is the absolute bomb, there's even a Firefox extension for LibraryThing. Thanks to Courtney for creating a monster.

PS I posted last night's picture entry with Performancing on Firefox, and I have to say it didn't Performancing up to my expectations. I'm a bit of a hack artist, I blog/design web pages in combinations of html and the WYSIWYG formatting options, and when I did that it didn't format properly either in Blogger or my LJ (which I post in pretty much everyday, but it's friends only, sorry Tennessee). Guess I'll just have to try again using only the formatting options and see how it plays out.

Wow, I even got a shoutout on this entry! Isn't LibraryThing the greatest thing you've ever come across?!? I was on a high for hours after I discovered it! I didn't know that Firefox had an extension, though--thanks for the tip! :)

I heard information engineers do that sort of thing.

Hey, if you have some free time, could you contact me (jedbrown.net/contact) regarding the formatting issues you are seeing with Performancing).

I'm in the process of improving how Performancing handles the code generated and the more feedback the better.

What's with the busting on info engineers? We're people, too- more nerdy and with an aversion to sunlight, but...

Yes, as a matter of fact I am avoiding my review
