WordPress 2.0 and K2 theme

I just updated to WordPress 2.0 and changed to the K2 theme.  Hopefully this works out well.

Game Elements PC Recoil gamepad drivers

Awhile ago I bought this cheap gamepad from WalMart and since then I had lost the driver CD. I had a difficult time locating a driver online, but finally did.

Update: The original link is now dead. I’m now hosting the file here.

Update2: Apparently AVG throws a false positive on this file. It’s not a virus, people. Feel free to use an online virus scanner to double check.

Update3: I can’t believe people are still downloading this file. Does anyone notice that this post was originally wrote over 4 years ago? What are the chances that the “Game Elements PC Recoil” you bought recently is even the same device that this driver was wrote for?

Bloglines Toolkit extension + Firefox 1.5

I’ve been having problems with the Bloglines Toolkit extension in Firefox 1.5.  The main problem being that it doesn’t work!  However I noticed here that the author, Chad Everett, posted a new, untested version in the comments.  That would be in comment #4.  This works fine for me…

Too many links

I’m going to have to find a better way of presenting my links.  With the amount of time I have for blogging, daily posts with my links seem to wipe out all my posts with content.  I think I’ll turn off my integration for awhile while I ponder a different scheme.

Scoble and NewsGator sittin’ in a tree…

Scoble constantly raves about NewsGator.  I don’t get it.  His main point everytime I notice him talking about it, is it’s sync’ed read/unread status between it’s web/PC/mobile versions.  Not enough to get me to switch since I get that with a consistent interface with Bloglines.  Bloglines has a mobile-friendly version of their site for viewing/reading on a mobile (which works surprisngly well over a plain ole GPRS connection) and everywhere else I could possibly want to read my feeds.  Couple this with the additional Bloglines features and you have a pretty killer app.

Now, I’m definitely not a “web apps are the future” sort of guy,but in this instance it seems like the way to go.

Any other reasons to give NewGator a try?

Performancing for Firefox extension rocks my socks

The new extension from for posting blog articles seems to be a super slick system.  I’ll be testing it out and will update later with some more thoughts on it.
