Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

When in Rome …

Anyone up for dinner Saturday night?

I’m staying a few blocks west of Termini. I may be a bit jetlagged, but promise witty repartee, to the extent I am able.

Re: When in Rome …

Oh wow, a blog post for this kind of request. Cray-zee.

You should have sent this message through a ~95% reliable, 100% proprietary network, like the rest of us cool kids.

Y’mean Twitter? Think about it … John McCain is on Twitter. Do I look like I want to have dinner with John McCain?

This too shall pass…

Yeah. I wouldn’t worry about it too much though. Just a couple of months ago, one of our illustrious tech pundits claimed that feeds were dead thanks to Twitter. Conclusion: we’re right at the top of the hype curve, just starting to hit the downslope.

(What’s at the bottom, you ask? A lot of sad geeks in San Francisco and a web littered with broken bit.ly links.)
