I want to believe. SVG as an image format.Boo. I ordered some fruit arrangement from “Edible Arrangements” in Los Gatos this the morning. I got home in the evening and it hadn’t been delivered all day. So much for surprise…

I called, they said the driver had the order and was delivering it now. It arrived 45 minutes later with no apology.

I won’t be using them again.

I want to believe. SVG as an image format.Oh, I forgot to mention a cool thing that happened at the beginning of the year while I was so busy: Wikipedia inched a step closer to having an in-browser editing experience for its impressive collection of vector image files via an experimental MediaWiki Extension. The extension was put together by Brion Vibber of StatusNet and WikiMedia fame. Fingers crossed for this to one day appear in Wikipedia! 🙂

I want to believe. SVG as an image format.I’ve been busy at my day job not launching code, but over the weekend I had some fun converting kthoom‘s unzip/inflate algorithm from using binary strings to using Typed Arrays.

I want to believe. SVG as an image format.It appears that comments on my blog have been screwed up now for probably at least a month. When you try to post a comment it 404s. You can no longer see comments on a post. I simply don’t have the time to look into this at the moment, so my apologies up front. I don’t know if I’ve been hacked or if something in my theme broke in an automatic update of WP.

If you need to get ahold of me there’s always email, Google Chat, Facebook, Twitter, Google Buzz. Least those don’t get hacked… much.
