One Year Ago

Here are some articles that are still timeless.

Monthly Digest


  • Do Anything: 3 Steps for Success
    I’ve been all touchy-feeling and self-discovery lately. I ponder what are the key qualities to be successful at anything.
  • What is Your Opportunity Cost?
    We’re taught to stay productive and keep busy, but busyness for busyness’ own sake will make you miss out on what could be great opportunities.

What’s hot this month.

IDT Labs Software Updates

IDT Labs is where I track free software I create.

  • [WORDPRESS.COM] Open 5 Blogs at Random
    I’ve created a short little script that will open five WordPress.com blogs at random when you press ALT+SHIFT+W .
  • [RSS PIPE] Stupid Feed Rewriter
    • Here’s another weird one that I might be the only person interested in. It republishes a title/description/link whenever there is a new post in the original feed. I have two twitter accounts at http://twitter.com/engtech and http://twitter.com/et By using Stupid Feed Rewriter I can advertise that I have two accounts.
  • [WORDPRESS] Akismet Auntie Spam v2
    • This is a complete re-write of my Firefox add-on that makes the Akismet Admin Panel about 1 million times more useful. Expect a full post on Internet Duct Tape with all the features some time next week. Rewrote from scratch using IP filtering idea from Donncha.
  • [WORDPRESS.COM] Find Blogs to Comment On
    • This is a dumb little Greasemonkey script that displays a banner message when a WordPress.com blog has the Recent Comments widget installed. The idea is to spend a few minutes a day commenting on lesser known blogs and meeting new bloggers.
  • [GREASEMONKEY] Show popular scripts on Userscripts.org
    • Userscripts.org is a website for hosting Greasemonkey scripts. This script makes it easier to see how popular scripts are when looking at search results.
  • [RSS] Yahoo Pipe Cleaner
    • I’ve create a Greasemonkey script to make cutting-and-pasting from Yahoo Pipes into a WordPress blog look nicer.
  • [RSS] Recent Blog Mentions
    • I’ve created a new Yahoo Pipe that filters your Technorati recent mentions. It removes all the ones with low authority (most likely spam) changes the title and link to go to the root of the domain name IE: if I linked to you from http://internetducttape.com/2007/08/12/hello-world it would show internetducttape.com
  • [RSS] Facebook Status Feed Filter
    • I’ve created a new Yahoo Pipe that that will take the RSS feed URL for your Facebook status, filter out your name, and add (from Facebook status) to the end. This makes it easy to repost your status in Twitter, Pownce, Tumblr, whatever.
  • [WORDPRESS] Search the WordPress.com Blog
    I’ve created a small script for Firefox that adds a search form to the WordPress.com Official blog.
