So long, BlogGlue

I don’t talk much about the technical side of having a blog, but though it might look technical, this is really about the business side of blogging.

One of the things I do on the back-end is choose “plug-ins” that add features to the blog that (hopefully) enhance your experience here or at a minimum help me accomplish something that the blog software (WordPress, in my case) doesn’t do natively. For example, and at issue . . . → Read More: So long, BlogGlue

There was something about it, though, that made me research it a little bit, and I found that it was being left on a lot of blogs, which reinforced the notion that it was spam. The real story has come out now, . . . → Read More: Jim Mirkalami – the actual story revealed – Quit Your Day Job

Eudora goes Open Source

Monkey Bites

The post is missing a few details (perhaps because they aren’t available), but it looks like the popular Eudora email client from Qualcomm is being completely re-written, using the Mozilla Thunderbird code-base as its engine, and released to the public as open source.

Eudora is a well-loved if somewhat outdated email client that many people (Qualcomm claims millions of users, which sounds accurate) continue to use just for its unique feature set. Eudora . . . → Read More: Eudora goes Open Source
