Shooting myself in the foot w/maven:release

I was using mvn:release (release:prepare, release:perform) to release a number of modules today (for several hours – so much for speeding up through automation) but kept getting errors to the effect of: [INFO] Error deploying artifact: Authentication failed: Cannot connect. Reason: Auth fail [INFO] Error deploying artifact: Authentication failed: Cannot connect. Reason: Auth fail It ...

Google releases Wave protocol implementation source code – Ars Technica: “At the Google I/O conference earlier this year, the search giant revealed an intriguing new communication service called Wave that aims to deliver concurrent messaging and collaborative editing in a single cohesive environment. The underlying Wave Federation Protocol is designed to make it possible for ...

@ SakaiCon

Just got off the plane and am at the hotel for the Sakai Conference (explains the flurry of blogging — no distracting internet, so time to write 🙂 ) I’ll be out in Newport Beach, CA from Fri 11/30 – Fri 12/6. If you’re around (esp. Fri night) and looking for something to do give ...

Reinstalled WordPress

One too many upgrades introduced a little bit of weirdness — so I’ve reinstalled WordPress and things look great — one click installs make it pretty painless.

Blogging styles

I had a conversation with a coworker about blogging today who got into RSS because of an internal presentation, but was asking “How do I find feeds.” The short answer is… “here’s my feedlist (~140 feeds) see if you like some.” It did make me think though, that I basically see 2 types of blogs. ...

Yahoo 360 First Impressions

I like Yahoo 360 for a lot of the same reasons I like my.yahoo. If you’re already using Yahoo services for photos, etc. it’s an easy way to share things with your friends and acquaintances. I don’t know how much it’ll appeal to the blogging community since there doesn’t currently seem to be as much ...

Mars Edit

I’ve been playing with [MarsEdit](http://www.ranchero.com/marsedit/), and must say that I’m impressed. The biggest problem for me would have to be the fact that I spend so much time on a PC at work, that I don’t feel like I can get tied to too many Mac only programs. If only [Firefox](http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox) supported spell-checking as you ...

Blogger Replaces Adsense with Search Box

In a sign that Google’s contextual ads might not be nearly as useful to marketers as its search advertising, the company removed contextual placements from the tops of pages served by its free blogging tool Blogger. In the ads’ place is now a Google search box designed to increase search traffic. The contextual ads ran ...

Blogging styles: Articles or Links?

I haven’t blogged on this site for a while. I have made some posts to my RUJason site using Blogger. Since blogger’s redesign and the launch of MT 3.0 I’ve been comparing the 2 services and have come to the conclusion that both are now mature, capable platforms specialized for different styles, comments & links, ...

Plagiarism Detectors

A survey of around 350 undergraduates found nearly 25% had copied text from another source at least once. A new service that can scan 4.5 billion web pages is now online so that lecturers can check the originality of the work submitted by students. I wonder how much of this plagiarism would be avoided if ...
