I’ve been looking for a way to make the posting process quicker for the Digest. My existing process has been to collect open tabs and categorize emails, then go through them later, turning them into links and source links. I’d like to be able to post them as I read them – a link per post, even. The closest tools I’ve found for this are Press This! / Press This Extended, but both appear to be abandoned and no longer compatible. Suggestions welcomed.
Keeping your published fiction and technical book list in SNMP is definitely a new use of a MIB to me.
If you’re near Chicago, go to the ChiBUG meeting tonight at 6.
