I just became a Daring Fireball member. I did so because I hadn’t done it before, though I wanted to… just didn’t feel like John was putting out a product that was worth it as a part time job.
Now that he’s doing it full-time, I’m super excited about reading his full-time posts… and I figured I should support his efforts.
I even bought a t-shirt.
Good luck John. And thanks.

This post: Dear Mike, from Scott Johnson is a great example of transparency… which we’ve sort of stopped talking about in the blogosphere… can’t wait to see Ookles launch Scott!
Apple vs. Me – from Jason O’Grady: “This case is not about me, it’s not about Apple and it’s not about the technology industry. It’s about the First Amendment.”(0)
My favorite reaction to Apple BootCamp announcement is this one from FuckedCompany.com:
Hell’s doors are now open
Yes, I still read F’dCompany… you don’t? It reminds me of the good old days…

My friend Mark Engelhardt, owner of IntuitiveISP IM’d me last night to tell me about his $1.99 sale on .info domains. $1.99? That’s a great deal… better than GoDaddy or anywhere else I’ve seen them…
I figured it’s too good a deal to pass up, so I registered a few cool short .info domains, and will see if someone wants to buy them in the next 12 months… it’s only $2, right?
Anyways, if you’re looking for a good domain, and the .com, .net, etc. variations are taken… see if the .info version is open, and if it is, go buy it for $1.99 from IntuitiveISP… Mark’s a great guy and gets all of my domain name business and has for about 5 years now.
Oh, sale ends 4/30/2006, so register it this month if you’re want to save a little cash… Domain names make great presents
Mac’s Moment from the WSJ – an interesting article talking about how now may be the time the Mac makes a move into more businesses… not sure I agree or disagree, but who knows. I’m linking to it because I interviewed with Chuck, who’s quoted in the first section, back when I got out of the Army some 5 or 6 years ago… cool… Chuck’s a great guy.(0)
Hidden iPod Commands – great little reference for the hidden commands on your iPod (all generations).(0)
