Huh?  I'm not sure where Google Plus pulled that description from.  Perhaps a cached version of the page that had a spam comment?  Still... shouldn't it have pulled the actual title instead?

It's been a while coming but WebPagetest 2.6 for private installs is now available: http://www.webpagetest.org/forums/showthread.php?tid=10651

By far, the biggest reason to pick it up is that it fixes issues with recent Chrome and Firefox builds but there are a lot of smaller improvements in there as well.

You'll also need the 2.6 release if you want to use the new EC2 AMI's (IE9/Chrome/Firefox all on the same instance)
I'm happy to announce the latest release for Private installs: https://sites.google.com/a/webpagetest.o...getest-2-6. The biggest changes/improvements: - Fixes to support recent Chrome and Firefox...

One of the features user have continually requested for TextMate is the ability to insert multiple carets. Allan, TextMate's developer, was always a little resistant to the idea because it seemed to require the use of a mouse and he's not a mouse guy. Well, he caved. You can now use a mouse to throw down multiple carets and then edit away. In this article will discuss: Using multiple carets with the mouse Changes to column selection Using multip...

Hah, nice, the spam checklist redone for distributed social networks:

http://programmingisterrible.com/post/39438834308/distributed-social-network

Fortunately Camlistore is useful for me, as my ultimate CMS and backup system, even if nobody else uses it.  But if people do end up using it, bonus / yay network effects / etc.

Over the past couple weeks of vacation, +Mathieu Lonjaret and I have made tons of progress on Camlistore.  I think I'm almost ready to start advertising it, making screencasts, new docs, etc.  But I keep wanting to add a few more things first....
Your post describes a ( ) protocol ( ) github repo ( ) manifesto ( ) kickstarter for a distributed social network. Your idea will not work. Here is why it won’t work. One or more of the following...

Introduction

Hi, I’m Josh Fraser. I’m a entrepreneur and have founded three companies so far. I fully expect to spend the rest of my life working to make the internet better.

I co-founded Torbit, which offers web performance measurement, analytics and optimization. I recently left that company.

Before Torbit, I co-founded EventVue, which provided tools to help conference organizers build community and market their events online. EventVue was part of the TechStars startup incubator in Boulder in 2007.

I graduated from Clemson University in 2006 with a BS in computer science. I started this blog as a way to share what I am learning with the rest of the world. I’m a huge believer in open-source software and have contributed to several projects like PubSubHubbub.

I love public speaking and have been privileged to give talks at The Ajax ExperienceVelocity conferenceIgnite Boulder and other events.

I’m a big believer in the power of mentorship. I’ve been fortunate to be surrounded by many wise mentors and am honored to mentor others through two of the TechStars programs — TechStars Cloud in San Antonio, TX and The Next Big Thing in Greenville, SC (which is part of the TechStars network).

I grew up in Scotland and have dual citizenship. I love rock climbing and spending time outdoors. I currently live in Mountain View, CA and plan to see the world from outer space one day.
