I just logged into Amazon to find that there is a link to my plog on the right side column. What is a Plog? I’m still not sure – here’s what the page says: Your Amazon.com Plog is a personalized web log that appears on your customer home page. Every person’s Plog is different (hence the name) and just like a blog, your Plog is sorted in reverse chronological order. [ Read More ]
How Search Works

I just read about CrossOSS on Download Squad. It’s a database of Open Source applications that lists which operating systems each will run on. There’s not much there yet, but this is a handy resource to keep your eyes on.
Yesterday my husband got some great news! He has recently designed a card game (a fun one) and a small game company wants him to send them a copy so they can decide if they want to distribute it. He was also mentioned on a gamer podcast!! I just had to share!
FINALLY! Just what I was looking for. coComment let’s you keep track of your comments on other blogs – and any comments that come after yours! Installing the handy extension for Firefox makes it so that a little bar appears under the comment box on the blog page you’re on. You can click the track box to keep track of your comment and the ones that follow. I’m really going [ Read More ]
I should start by saying that I do not pay the extra fee for text messages on my phone – so I won’t be using this service – but that doesn’t make it any less cool. I just read about twttr on TechCrunch. Odeo released a new service today called Twttr, which is a sort of Ã¢â‚¬Å“group sendÃ¢â‚¬Â SMS application. Each person controls their own network of friends. When any [ Read More ]
SlimTimer is a nifty little tool that I read about on TechCrunch. It provides you with a web based personal timer. This is great for people who work from home or work for time. You can keep track of your time and then run reports for both yourself and anyone else who has shared their timer with you. While it does still depend on the honesty of the employee, it’s [ Read More ]
I just realized how long it has been since I’ve written anything. I’m trying to get things organized around the house before I start classes. I’m currently reading The Accidental Systems Librarian. In addition, at work I’m working on a huge project to replace the software we’re using for ILL. So as you can see I’ve been a little busy. This project I’m working on is so much bigger than [ Read More ]
Just a reminder that the unofficial wiki is up and running – and waiting for people to start entering information. This will be my first year at LITA and my first time in TN, so I don’t have much to contribute, but I’d really like to see some veterans participating in this collaborative project.

I just finished installing Now Reading – a plugin for WordPress. I’m having some pretty major issues with it so I might have to uninstall it, but I really don’t want to. I get MySQL errors when I add and edit books. You’ll also find that links to certain books don’t work. Lastly, the links to Amazon aren’t using my associates tag quite right. Feel free to email me if [ Read More ]
As you know I will start my Masters program with Drexel Online in just 2 months! I was interested in what this online learning experience was going to be like so I’m reading Teach Beyond Your Reach by Robin Neidorf. Since the book is geared toward teachers (not students) there are a few sections I’ve found myself skimming over (like the creating content chapters), but for the most part this [ Read More ]
