10 short years

Friday, 21 October 2005

On Wednesday, I was privileged to attend a “10 Year Awards Presentation Ceremony”, honouring a number of staff from the FLC and SAS who have been with UniSA for 10 years or more.

I and one of my Managers - Ian Reid, were amongst the recipients, having both commenced here in 1995.

It was quite interesting to hear the speeches about each person, and I was most pleasantly surprised by what our Director, Prof. Bruce King said about me.

RSS for PocketPC with Firefox

Thursday, 13 October 2005

I use Firefox as my preferred browser, and at the moment I’ve found the Live Bookmarks feature the easiest way to track various RSS feeds of interest to me.

At a recent Adelaide SQL User Group meeting, Rob showed me an application running on his PPC device that I think was Egress. It made me think what I really want is an application that would run on my iPAQ that would grab the latest stuff from my RSS, but use the Live Bookmarks in my Firefox profile as the source of what RSS feeds to get.

Now I only have to build the thing :-)
