The Magic of RSS

I use google reader and it just told me the following:

From your 186 subscriptions, over the last 30 days you read 4,589 items, starred 12 items, and shared 10 items.

So that’s why I guess I’m reading fewer books than I used to…

This week in review

Bad news first. My cat is wasting away and it is very sad.

Lots more that is good news. My team’s project at work nears completion. We are in the final crunch of testing and bugfix.

Sam’s brother Roger and his family have moved to New York from London. That’s great as they are fun to hang out with.

I’ve been whacking away at learning Ruby on Rails for a while now. I’ve read a good bit of the skateboard book, and have been hacking away at a site while I ride the subway to work and back. On labor day I put my new scuba dive logging website into production. As I’m getting this thing going, I’m amenable to any good suggestions folks have.

What should the name be?

What features are missing?

Right now, you can log dives. You can see your profile and some statistics for you. This is my scuba profile. Come to think of it, there’s another change I can make right there. The url for a profile should be domain/User/username – is there any reason to have this show business?

Go ahead and create a login and play around. Don’t count on your data being there tomorrow, but it probably will be. I’ll be adding in a way to export your dives back out, add more details in about your dives, etc. Anything in the PADI standard dive log book should be an available field shortly.

Erm. That’s it for now, I’ll let you know when more useful things are added.

I’m off to vegas on thursday for my friend Atari’s bachelor party.  Expect no tales and no blogging  for a bit.
