Damn tired. Need to take it easier, I guess. Still, there are some interesting things afoot.
- Via Melo, Mark Pilgrim's hilarious comeback to David Hansson's post on Twitter's scaling pains, inspired by John Gruber's take on Macrovision's response to Steve Job's Thoughts on Music. Now try reading this aloud as fast as you can while you ponder that this is just the tip of the Ruby performance iceberg.
- Via Mark himself, Google's odd pre-announcement of a yet-to-come web-based PowerPoint replacement of some sort. Let the hype begin.
- Via John Gruber, Marko Karppinen's notes on the recent ruckus regarding the AirPort Extreme 802.11n base station and its IPv6 features, which comes at a time when I am again looking for ways to do transparent file syncing across machines (which includes doing it across NAT).
Yeah, I'm looking at IPv6 (it's about time). But I've also realized that most of the file syncing approaches out there are crude, inefficient and slow and require a lot of extra baggage (file servers, web servers, the works) so I've started looking at the problem.
In the meantime, Alexey Zakhlestin has joined Planet Tao. I've been meaning to revamp the place and issue a call for Mac folk to pay it a visit and place a few links here and there, but I've never been one for shameless plugs.
See? I suck at doing shameless plugs...
