Roller Development Sidelined

Unfortunately, I won't be working on Roller tonight like I'd hoped. It's 9:30 right now and I'm just finishing up my first release at the new job. I'd rather not pull an all-nighter after working a 50-hour week in 4 days. Ugh - I'm burnt. Good to be done though - and the customers here (internal) are really excited about using a webapp to do their jobs.

Sorry Roller, you're going to have to wait a while for my features. I'm planning on taking my PowerBook, but I won't promise anything. The last time I took it on a trip and tried to get some work done - it was brutal. I was up until 6:00 a.m. trying to finish my first release for the last project I was on. I gave up and slept for an hour - hoping to finish it up on the plane. Needless to say, I suck developing on a Mac and it took me all the way until Monday morning to release. The client was furious and the project almost ended right then and there. I tried to quit, but they wouldn't let me.

It's kinda funny that it's been almost a year since then, and I'm in the same situation again. Luckily, I finished before my plane took off this time! I wish I could work on ya Roller, but I need a vacation... Phew - off to Florida!

Add a favicon.ico to your site

Photo of West Palm Beach Want to add a favicon to your site? It's easy using the Graphic Converter. Just use this to change any existing electronic image into an .ico file. Use your favorite icon editor to apply further enhancements to the image, then upload it to your site. Once it's there, you can either put it in the / directory of your site, or refer to it in the <head> of your HTML. I do both.

<link rel="icon" href="/favicon.ico" />

RE: Display Tag Library - donate it!

Shortly after posting my donate plea yesterday, I sent a similar message to the struts-user group and cc'd Ed Hill. Lo and behold, I got the following reply from Ed:

I would gladly support any efforts to continue (restart) development on my taglib. I've reserved some sourceforge space myself, but have not moved things over yet. Alas, it currently does what I need it to do and other priorities have well taken priority.

If someone steps up to volunteer to be the pumpkin keeper (sorry, Perl cultural reference), I will do what I can to help (redirect my web site on my personal machine to the new home, etc...)

I don't subscribe to the struts-user list, so if you would please forward this on to encourage any discussion, I would appreciate it.

Thank you!

Cool, I'll see what the struts-user list says today (I only subscribe to this 150+ message-a-day list at work), and see if I can find a pumpkin keeper.
