Memos from May 2006


What a Memorial Day For Sure

I thought she was kid­ding when Belle told us she’s a Civil/Traffic Engi­neer for the City of Los Ange­les. Again jp haha… at least get a new backpack:

[She] sits fac­ing an inner ring of com­put­ers with her hand on a mouse. Her hair is in a pony­tail, her beat-up back­pack lies next to her, her feet are shoved in a pair of old sneak­ers. She looks about 15.

Sometimes You Feel Like a Nut

This is how fast this year is cur­rently going.

I just need more free time to relax and catch-up on all the things I need and want to accom­plish. But hey… I guess just go with the flow right? Alas, its the weekend.

Have a great, safe Memo­r­ial Day weekend!

Sweet PICT*RE

Departing San Francisco

Right on, right on! I haven’t checked the web “lately” but I got a dope com­ment from Hen­ning (aka. atom­tiger­zoo) in Flickr just yes­ter­day. Seems like the photo above (Depart­ing San Fran­cisco) was selected and pub­lished on the release of Pict*re Mag­a­zine — Vol­ume Two!

I’m totally stoked =p

To-do List in Google Calendar

It seems that I am find­ing Google Cal­en­dar (cur­rently being referred to as gCal by technopiles) an alter­na­tive to Out­look lately. Even though I wish that Google would fin­ish up imple­ment­ing some kind of sync­ing between gCal and Out­look already. But luck­ily, there’s a “hack” that helps out in that side of things. I guess its enough to hold me down for a bit till some­thing from Google comes about.

Any­ways, one of the other things that I was hop­ing gCal to have was a sim­ple to-do list(s), aka. Tasks for those Outlook-oriented peo­ple. As I was Blingo-ing for an inte­gra­tion of some kind of to-do list with gCal, this arti­cle was on top of the list by Matias Pelenur. It does the job using JS, GM and Fire­Fox. Although at the moment, it only saves your to-do list per GM install; locally that is, per com­puter. But there are a cou­ple of workarounds that can be done to make it store to ser­vices such as Ama­zon S3, gCal itself, etc. as noted by Matias.

Sup­pos­edly, Google men­tioned the avail­abil­ity of an “Account Authen­ti­ca­tion Proxy for Web Appli­ca­tions” fea­ture that will be inter­grated with their gCal API in late April… this past April in fact. I guess we’ll just have to wait for an update on Matias about that, or from Google regard­ing their own home-blended to-do list inte­gra­tion with gCal.
