The nice people at Tech Smith interviewed me about my app Thousand Wires (ThousandWires.com) and how I use Camtasia: bit.ly/Qes0O2

Thanks Lee! I usually don't get to do that kind of stuff so it was a nice break from writing code and design. Camtasia is an awesome app, too.

Does anyone know if newer versions of Textpattern are using some sort of caching mechanism? In the last few sites/updates I've worked with, I'll hit a page and it'll do something strange, like go all white. I know the page is fine because I was just on it, but nevertheless, it's white. I can refresh it a few times, clear my own cache and nothing fixes it in my browser. However, if I go to /textpattern and do something like flip the site to testing mode and then back to live, it works fine again. Just curious if anyone else has seen this.

No problem. Not so long ago Media Temple did do pretty major system wide upgrade, hardware and software including upgrading PHP.

I guess in this case your problem might be hard to trace. I have a number of sites running on MT's Grid and a seperate Managed DV box and have only noticed very minor hiccups that were easily fixed, but no white outs.

Hope you manage to sort it.

We've been without a microwave for over a month now, and to be completely honest, I'm not sure how the Pilgrims lived without them. I bet they had a lot of unfinished leftovers in their fridges all the time.

Poll: how do you buy music? Do you prefer digital, vinyl, or CD?

I agree. I still like the tangible aspect of having music. Such a nice quality you don't get with digital. However, I've been lazy and picked up a lot of digital this year. Need to buy a few of my favorites as albums. Thanks for weighing in, Lee.

It's sad how much it takes for an artist to make a living in music. I'll be buying more physical albums and doing less streaming with Spotify and Rdio. Both are great services, but if an artist can't make a living at it they'll have to do something else instead. http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/2010/how-much-do-music-artists-earn-online/

Yeah, I have not their courage/death wish, and I don't feel that I'm missing anything.
