Patrick O’Keefe interviewed me for today’s episode of The Community Admin Show, his bi-weekly podcast concerning all things online communities. Inside he asks me about the book, securing your phpBB, and more. Check it out if you get a sec!
Check out Firefox running on a bajillion different operating systems. Nuts!!!
Jeremy Hermanns describes the scene on board an Alaska Airlines MD-83 after a hole in the plane causes a rapid depressurization of the cabin and deployment of oxygen masks and such. Includes photos from his Treo. It’s a very interesting read, and I’m glad that the pilots of the aircraft were able to bring the plane in for a quick, safe landing.
Every time I watch the Local Forecast on the Weather Channel, the Intellistar – the computer in our area that runs the local forecast presentation – emits this awful buzzing sound once or twice (sometimes three times depending on which products display) during the forecast.

Holy cow.Â That was, quite possibly, THE EASIEST upgrade I have ever performed.Â And the software looks great!Â Kudos to the WordPress team!
I hope everyone out there had a fantastic Christmas or first day of Hannukah (take your pick)!
The book I co-authored, Building Online Communities With Drupal, phpBB, and WordPress should be available today, December 26, according to Amazon. So, while you’re doing your returns tomorrow, or perhaps looking for that outstanding after-Christmas sale, please feel free to drop in your local bookstore and look for it. It’ll be shelved in the Web design/Web development section of your local bookstore. If you see it, please tell me where you saw it!
I Skyped with Patrick tonight, my first Skype experience, and it’s one heck of an amazing technology.
Add me and we can chat! I’m jared_w_smith.
’72 Dolphins, pop that cork. No undefeated team this year, thanks to the Chargers. :)
The Patriot Act was not renewed today. From CNN:
“I don’t want to hear again from the attorney general or anyone on this floor that this government has shown it can be trusted to use the power we give it with restraint and care,” said Feingold, the only senator to vote against the Patriot Act in 2001.
