A bunch of things I wanted to mention. I installed Workrave just now, to help manage my (micro)breaks. Read this Tricks of the Trade article, which has some interesting tips. And then there’s the LOTR Sting FX Sword from the ThinkGeek newsletter. Very cool.
They’re making fun of Black Metal. I do appreciate the music, but the author is right. The look can be hilarious. I just read Why specs matter. Most developers are morons, and the rest are assholes. Gotta love that analogy.
Finally got round to upgrading my local PHP installation to version 5. All went well, except for the MySQL extensions which are turned off by default and which took me a while to realise. Oh, Migrating from PHP 4 to PHP 5 from the manual might come in handy to.
