It has been more than 3 weeks since my last blog post, and I blame it sorely on Twitter and I am sure it has nothing to do with my laziness. Hmm. It wasn't the first that my blog was threatened by Twitter, and you would think that I have migrated to Jaiku already?!
Okay. I did give Jaiku a try because of their seemingly working IM interface. The working bit was emphasised because it worked, but not very well. Stuff I posted sometimes take up to 12 hours for it to appear on Jaiku, and then IM had outage after outage. At the end I figured out that it would have been easier for me to write my own XMPP bot for Twitter -- and that's exactly what I did. A 500 line XMPP bot using pyxmpp + python-twitter wrapper and it does everything the old bot did plus more. Maybe I'll share the code sometime when I clean it up... But I am back to Twitter for now (although thinking about running my own Laconi.ca server).
So I guess it would be a good idea to revise what I have tweet today.
DomainCentral still have not replied my support request -- which is 40+ hours now. Got two .com domains at us.domaincentral.com but recently they changed the login credential from <email> + <password> to <username> + <password>. I have no idea what my username is so I asked the support. Maybe I should just transfer my domains away.
John Lennox's talk at City Bible Forum today is great. Title of the talk was "Is Science on God's Side?" and it is always a joy to hear from someone who is really intellectual. It was also great to see CBF at the Angel Place was packed. Now I am thinking of going to see the debate on Saturday.
MYOB bought SmartyHost. Huh?! Didn't MYOB bought the Perth-based Ilysis Hosting earlier this year? Why is the accounting package company buying up hosting companies? So Anoosh said that he will focus on Vigabyte, a VMWare infrastructure based VPS provider that does not seem to deliver (see Nicholas' comments in discussion). Hmm...
Enough for tonight. Yes -- need to resist the urge to tweet, but blog more. Let me tweet about it :)
