Using a Treo 650 PDA with Debian on a Dell

My Treo 650 showing this very web page

I just got a brand new PDA-phone last Monday, a Tréo 650 running PalmOS.

I have been reluctant to cell phones for a long while, finding them rather invasive: when you own a cell phone, people expect to be able to reach you on it pretty much all the time and everywhere. At some point, the trade off between this cost and the advantage of being able to call some people all the time and everywhere tipped the balance, and I finally decided to get a cell phone for my personal usage.

Macroformats

Filed under:

While microformats are all about embedding data in HTML, I thought that macroformats could be a good way to talk about transforming existing data into HTML. I hear you say this didn’t need a name, it existed before; but we all know this is all about naming in the end…

So, here is on the “macroformat” technique that I use to keep up to date the list of projects I’m working on at this time: it’s based on an iCalendar todo list that I maintain using Evolution.

Introducing “BigBrother”, yet another Semantic Web bot

As anybody really interested in the Semantic Web, I had to write a Semantic-Web enabled IRC bot; and so I did…

Well actually, the first thing I did was to review the existing bots; I’m OK with writing a bot to prove my attachment to the Semantic Web, but not if that requires some actual work. And the good news is: there is plenty of existing code to work from. A few notes on the ones I quickly looked at:

  • Emeka that I didn’t really test, since it relies on a recent API addition to 4Suite which wasn’t available on my Debian testing
