You may have heard this already, but Dell is recalling batteries that have been overheating and setting laptops on fire. I have one of the potentially affected laptops – but I haven’t turned it off to check the battery yet
Learn more about this recall and share it with your friends and family (especially if they got their laptop between April 1, 2004 and July 18, 2006).
[update] Turns out I have one of the bad batteries – so I have to wait 20 days for my new battery [/update]
As you know I have finally signed up for FeedBurner – but why the change? Well I was getting a little annoyed with depending on Bloglines to tell me how many subscribers I have. Bloglines was telling me that I had something like 28 subscribers – After 2 days FeedBurner says I have 79 (and I’m sure there are still more people who haven’t used the new feed URL yet).
I’m not sure why the difference, but I knew (based on page visits & comments) that there were more than 30 of you out there reading to see what I learned today. Thanks for bearing with me and updating your aggregators!
Today I learned that you can’t trust Bloglines count of subscribers (especially since there are a lot more readers out there to choose from).
Okay I give – how the heck do you get a little icon to appear next to your feed in a reader like Bloglines? I looked at a bunch of people’s RSS feeds today and could not see anything there that I didn’t have in my feed. I have a favicon set up for my site and I’d like to have the same image appear in Bloglines. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
I know you’ve all been subscribed for a while – but I’ve finally signed up for FeedBurner and I’d love it if you all used my FeedBurner link to subscribe. Thanks in advance!
I just read on LibrarianInBlack about a list of Extentions specifically for Web programmers. I have some of them, but I did find some new tools. The one I was most excited about was Screen Grab, but its not compatible with the newest version of Firefox, so I’ll have to wait.
I just read about Stu.dicio.us on Solution Watch.
Claimed to be a social notetaking service, Stu.dicio.us allows students to publicly save organized notes, manage a class schedule, and keep up to date with tasks using a time sensitive to do list.
It sounded interesting so I went to take a look – the problem is that you can’t see what it’s all about unless you know the school and class/professor of the class. I just wanted a little demo before I signed my life away
I just read on Tombrarian that there is a discounted rate offered by Southern California Online Users Group to attend Internet Librarian. Apparently you don't have to be a member of SCOUG to get the discount, you just have to register before September 18th. Learn More.

I am all registered for my first term at Drexel. Can you believe that registration opened at 7am this morning for new masters students and at 7:38 when I registered 5 sessions I wanted were already filled.
Why didn’t I register sooner? Well I was up this morning at 4am (lots going on at home to keep my mind working) and I actually considered coming in to work late so that when registration opened at 7am I would be in front of my computer instead of underground in the subway – yep at 7am I’m on my way to work, I registered as soon as my computer turned on this morning.
Maybe more than you needed to know – but there you go.
I still got all of the classes I wanted/needed so I’m a happy camper. Classes start September 25th!
I have been having problems with Bloglines since they did their maintenance the other day. My feeds keep saying there are new posts, but when I click to read I get no results. Sometime changing the “Display items within the last” to a longer timeframe will make posts show up – when that works the posts are dated today or yesterday. Anyway, I’m getting a little annoyed – and probably missing some important posts.
That’s right, the long awaited site from WorldCat is now live – visit WorldCat.org. I have one major complaint – there is no easy way to get back home. I keep trying to click the logo in the top left – but that doesn’t work – and there is no link to home.
Hopefully that’s fixed soon.
