All I have to add is something I learnt at #indiewebcampUK this year: when people advocate a technology, don’t be afraid to ask the selfdogfooding questions
And if they answer no, don’t be afraid to call them out on it. It’s your time they’re wasting.
“…disruptive technologies don’t start out better than established technologies, as would seem intuitive, they start out worse. But for all their faults in comparison with entrenched, established competitors, there’s something radically different that opens whole new opportunities, and makes them disruptive.”

Have you had a look at PuSH v0.4? It’s way simpler than old PuSH and is no longer strongly tied to RSS/ATOM content.
Note also that the “argh my little site got popular and is dying” thing can be solved even with your simpler system, by making the endpoint an external service. Woo hypermedia discovery over well-known URLs!
@roopagulati mmmm… my favourite is rice cakes + peanut butter with dark chocolate on the top
Sheesh, it gets even better: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_can_you_get_hot_water_when_the_water_is_cold
I think I just tried to make @nerdhaus quiche. Whether or not I accept that interpretation of the past as canon depends mainly on the degree of misshapenness of whatever it is coming out of the oven in a few minutes.
Sad that Horse_ is gone? Pining for some hilarious nonsense? Come spamwatching on the microformats.org wiki for a bit.
Corn starch is the paradoxical inb4/f1r5t p0st of the kitchen — it stops things from sticking by sticking to things before they have the chance to stick. #baking
@schmidt_fu there does indeed! Not sure how to fix that. Looking into it now, thanks :)
Databases are the wrong way round. A database should be something you do to content rather than content being something you to a database.
@benwerd my take: use
rel=next/prev[ious] (like inter-post nav) then progressively enhance, make sure you’re not making people play “catch the footer” :)
Also in #raspberrypi today: learning about I2C communications. Tips+resources:
sudo i2cdetectbefore and after plugging it in and see which address changed
i2cget, they’re super useful for poking around in I2C devices
I cobbled together a #python class for communicating with the ADXL345 by cross-referencing between the Arduino library for that chip and Adafruit’s I2C library, only to find that someone else had done so only hours earlier!
Successfully got both my RPis automatically connecting to WiFi and serving HTTP and SSH over @pagekite. If you’re having trouble setting up SSH over Pagekite, using Interactive Testing is super useful. Turns out I had typed my secret in wrong — oops!
At least I can not run them headless now and not keep lugging monitor, keyboard etc. into the kitchen (only source of WiFi strong enough for tiny antenna to pick up). Better for my own sanity as well as my housemates’.
