Okay, so I hate working in Windows, but on my employer’s equipment at least, I must live with it. After having had this machine replaced twice (faulty Dell hardware) and rebuilt more times than I can remember (Windows BSODs), for a total of at least 3 system migrations this past year, I thought I’d better keep a list of what free software to install on top of Windows, and what adjustments to make, so that at least I don’t feel like I’m wearing a straight jacket. Here goes:
New del.icio.us rolls do not appear at right-hand side of this site, even though they did in Preview? Strange. Maybe it’s a blogger glitch? See what happens in a few days, I suppose…
UPDATE: 2006-03-20 12:45 — Not a glitch. Strange behaviour when I commented the del.icio.us block in the template. It seems that the comment block wasn’t terminated? Odd. Fixed by removing my comments. This is sub-optimal, but works at least.
I’ve added the new “tag roll” and “link roll” to the right in this blog’s template. Looks great, but examining my tags reveals I’m a bit disorganised, huh?
That’s nothing, you should check out my tags in Flickr. Definitely could do with some improvement there.
Tags are a great idea. The trouble is, I’m uncertain how best to use them. That is, what are the best tag words to attach to a link or photo so that I can find the right one again? How can I best group my del.icio.us tags into Bundles to facilitate research? Should I even try?
I guess only experience will help. So I’ll keep persevering :-). Also, since tags are social, looking at how other people have tagged their stuff could be instructive too.
