  • A number of you have noted that the Computer History Museum (which has both online content and a physical building up in Silicon Valley) has released the original Pascal source code for one of the seminal Macintosh applications, MacPaint.  I remember that application well – my dad had it on his original Macintosh.  I also have a strong memory of the graphic of the geisha for some reason.
  • I’ve stared using Thunderbird for my email address, and I really like it.  (I used Outlook at all of my previous jobs….) and it has this cool feature that I’ve never seen before that can use keywords from your post to remind you that you haven’t attached a file when you said you had.  We’ve all done that one.  That has probably been around on other mail clients, but I confess to never having seen it.
  • I now have a public CV at StackOverflow.  And let me add that this is about the 34th time I’ve typed in my resume.  Okay, that’s a few too many times, but it feels like it.  Business idea: A central resume location that employers can just pull from.  LinkedIn, I’m looking at you.
  • If you are interested in HTML 5 (and you can include me in that group), you might find this tutorial interesting. It’s an interesting project – Be sure to read the “Did You Know” note at the bottom of the Table of Contents.
