Konfabulous!

I found a widget, tonight, that had just been added for Konfabulator and allowed you to check your Gmail. Not a new idea but the approach was a little different. This widget uses Gmail’s atom feeds to offer you a small preview of the email messages in your account. Pretty cool but so far the…

Of Google Alerts and Gmail

I’ve noticed something about my Gmail account and the Google alerts I’ve subscribed to, sometimes they send the alert is classified as a different Google alert I’ve set up and is consequently labeled wrong in my inbox. Strange, huh? At first I thought there was some content to the alert that might have been similar…

Sail 2points off the Starboard Beam!

I’ve always been a huge fan of movies with the “tall ships”. In fact, I’ve seen Captain Blood and Captain Horatio Hornblower R.N. more times than I can count (Don’t remember these movies? look them up in the IMDB. Don’t know what the IMDB is? What cave are YOU living in and how did you…

In this edition we talk about Konfabulator, announce my new project Yosemiteblog.com and waiting for the cops. Ooops! Sorry. I put the wrong URL for the podcast. That’s what you get for being up at midnight.

Konfabulator

Konfabulator rocks! At first I was like, “Ok. Another shiny bauble to eat up cycles and hog desktop realestate on my Mac”, but the more and more I played with it the more I liked it. In case you haven’t heard Konfabulator is a widget based environment that runs over/under the OS bringing the things…
