In the latest build of WordPress you can get a look at the new widget management in WordPress 2.5, view large version.
Instead of the current [...]

Random album cover

I usually don't like to post these "chain posts", but this one is quite funny:

The first article title on the Wikipedia Random Articles page is the name of your band.
The last four words of the very last quotation on the Random Quotations page is the title of your album.
The third picture in Flickr's Interesting Photos [...]

Why not block Facebook?

Given the recent commotion regarding Facebook (Scott Gilbertson and Dave Winer has some wraps on this), Paul Buchheit asks an interesting question.
What Facebook wants to prohibit Plaxo Pulse from doing is, to some extent, what Facebook is doing when users import their address books from, say, Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail. So should Gmail, Yahoo and [...]

René, the lead translator of WordPress DK, has an exiting post at wordpress.dk.
The Danish WordPress project has now been given a subsite at the official WordPress.org: da.wordpress.org.
I still think that most Danish users will end up on wordpress.dk (because of Google Rank and the forum which stays there) but none the less it's great with [...]

Get 5 percent off with Firefox

Tekfix, an Australian computer hardware and electronics retailer, has an interesting discount [press release]:
To get the 5% off, Firefox users have to enter coupon code firefoxed in the appropriate field during checkout.
Nice initiative.
However, I wonder why they haven't chosen to let their shop do a browser check, instead of just telling people to enter [...]

Mozilla turns 10 in March

During my last round in Google Reader I noticed this post from David Boswell.
As you can see, the Mozilla [Wikipedia] has its 10 year birthday on March 31st. That means that it 10 years (yeah, well d'oh!) ago, that Netcape [Wikipedia] released the source code into the wild.
Just a tip for your calendar ;-)

The lead translater of the Danish version of open source blogging software WordPress, René, writes on the official WordPress DK blog, that WordPress 2.4 has been cancelled.
The reason is that there are too many corrections to be made, and therefore WP 2.4 could not be ready until March. The next WordPress release will be 2.5, [...]

My friend Jeppe just showed me a report on "Leading surveillance societies in the EU and the World 2007", where Denmark, where I live, is listed under "extensive surveillance societies".
Read the report and judge for yourself. Quite a scary bit of reading, if you ask me…

I've been using the latest trunk (nightly) version of the Firefox 3 browser for some time now. But it wasn't until recently that I discovered, that it had disabled two of my extensions:

CoLT
TinyUrl Creator

The reason was that the extensions didn't provide secure updates, probably to avoid fraud. I checked addons.mozilla.org and noticed, that the entire [...]

How readable is your blog?

I just saw this rather funny thing at Social Media. Just paste your blog's url into the text field and have it figure out, what level you blog is at. Have fun :-)
