    NYT: The Extended Life of Monty Python

    • 0 Comments

    Excerpt from New York Times Article:

    The Extended Life of Monty Python
    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/07/fashion/07python.html\

    IS there life left in the dead parrot sketch?

    It has been 25 years since Monty Python was a living comedy troupe — the film “The Meaning of Life,” released in 1983, was its swan song — but that has not stopped one alumnus from trying to convince the world that Python, like the parrot in its ancient skit, is just resting. For decades, Eric Idle has made sure the Monty Python name continues to grace books, DVDs, concert tours, a Broadway show, ring tones and video games.

    Now he is helping take Monty Python to the Internet.

    Pythonline.com, a social network and digital playground, offers clips of old material that people can use to make mash-ups, perhaps inserting their own pet in the killer-rabbit scene from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” The home page has a blog format with news about the surviving Pythons; elsewhere there are chat boards and e-mail forums. Membership is free.

    MY COMMENT:

    Monty Python was a key influence in my formative years. Good to see them keep on truckin’

    Oxite was a plentiful ore that could be mined on the planet Oasis in the middle of The Maelstrom, according to Wookieepedia

    Oxite is “an open source, standards compliant, and highly extensible content management platform that can run anything from blogs to big web sites.”

    cool

    Aggiorno – a Smart Search and Replace

    • 1 Comments

    I got a note from my friend Gilbert, aka SAMIQ about a neat app called Aggiorno

    Aggiorno automates a number of code improvement tasks that frankly should not be performed by humans. We all know that source is a nuance that we need to bear with because there are no better ways to deal with the behavior of the site. Modifying source code is error-prone and does not really add value to the web user; however it is necessary to change source code to improve a number of properties in your side.

    What I really like about the tool, is how it understands HTML Markup, and how it integrates into Visual Studio.

    But, if you don’t want to use VS, there is a Aggiorno Standalone Edition, as well as the free Aggiorno Express Transformations for Microsoft Internet Explorer 8, which automates the process of inserting the IE8 compatibility flag throughout a site.

    It’s a cool useful tool which should help prepare sites for the release of IE8
