Since I’ve been stuck at home and can mostly only type one handed, I decided to work on my Deskbar plugins to try and keep myself busy and forget about the pain in my sholder and back. As a result, I put together a new Deskbar plugin called Wayd(What Are You Doing) that allows you to update multiple micro-blogs at once(twitter, jaiku, etc…). It currently supports Twitter and Jaiku but I hope to add Facebook and Pownce once they have an API available. If anyone knows of other micro-blog services I should include, please let me know in the comments. Since the Deskbar plugin API changed, you’ll need the 2.19+ version of Deskbar for this plugin to work.
Lately I’ve fallen in love with Deskbar(think OSX Quicksilver). I put together a couple of plugins to make it more productive for me.
Also upgraded my laptop and desktop at home to EdgyEft. Edgy continues Gnomes slow steady progression of polish, speed and simplicy. It rocks!
I was frustrated with Bloglines issues a while back and switched to a self hosted install of Gregarius. Gregarius has it’s own set of issues to work through, but at least with access to the code you “can” fix them and it is being actively developed.
Inspired by the “what’s in your bag” meme and for my future reference, I’m posting the contents of my Firefox extensions:
- Nuke Anything
- Tab Clicking Options
- User Agent Switcher
- Web Developer
- Live HTTP Headers
- Bloglines Toolkit
- Disable Targets For Downloads
- Unread Tabs
- Chrome Cleaner
- Gmail Notifier
Anyone use another extension that’s useful? Post them. Hmmm… that reminds me, I need to finish my S2 template, the comment area is a mess.
One day I wake up an realize I actually like VI(vim) almost as much as Emacs.
