RSS Aggregators

RSS is all the rage now. I’ve been playing with a few different aggregators, which will collect multiple feeds and format them for proper reading.

The latest entry into the foray is SharpReader, a three-pane aggregator, built on the .NET platform. It minimizes to the system tray (Yes!!), supports drag and drop, and a bunch of other awesome features. There are a ton of people talking about it in their weblogs, and it sounds like it’s just going to get better and better.

The Line has been Crossed

CNN is reporting that I Marine Expeditionary Force is moving into Iraq.

That includes my brother. Shit.

Stay safe, Brad. That goes for everyone else in the area, civilians included.

Party at the VFW

It’s been over 6 months since I left my position at my last company. In style with the times, they have begun to liquidate positions. One of my very dear friends was let go two weeks ago, so a going away party was thrown. Additionally it was my best friend’s birthday recently, so that got lumped in to the party. I managed to stay sober and enjoy the fun, but being sober and unable to dance does make for a slighly less enjoyable time. Regardless, I had a great time seing everybody I used to work with. Why is it you never recall the place you worked, so much as the people?

Pictures have been posted, surprisingly, in the picture section.

I made a comment regarding a post I saw on Kiruba Shankar’s web site. The next thing I know, I’m reading an article about a blog meet in India, and in the article is a paraphrase of my comment. Small world.

As a sidenote, I’d like to say hi to everybody dropping in from Kiruba’s site. Lots of extra traffic generated in the last few days since I posted that comment. I haven’t gotten around to building a comment system yet, but you can drop me an e-mail using Lee Madajczyk(at)madajczyk(dot).com. Maybe this will force me into finishing up my .NET blogging system, complete with comments?

Nah. Probably not.

Just when I was getting a lot of work done, a new version of one of my all-time favorite games has been released!

Command and Conquer: Generals

You can find more details on the official web site. See you in July!
