Yahoo's new homepage not as exciting as some would have hoped.Yahoo's new homepage not as exciting as some would have hoped.

Users will notice a difference and there are features which will make life simpler. But there's nothing here to cause swarms of new users to Yahoo.

I was introduced to Dan's books from a friend and have since encouraged anyone who wants to get into standards-based web development to read his books cover to cover.

Daily Grind: Slightly accomplished

Name: Vin (aka glm fanboy)
How Vin feels today: Slightly accomplished @ 9:04:00 AM
What Vin really wants today: To mark that this is the first official new daily grind post of GeekLikeMe 4.0. Also state that aforementioned daily grind is now once again a weekday thing - hooray. Oh, and also to continue fixing various bugs with recently launched new version of this site.

Music Stuck in Head: Glory Days / Bruce Springsteen
Mostly because I'm curious to hear how it sounds with Phish as the backup band.

Stuff to do today:

  • Figure out a way to get more sleep
  • Update 'potentially related posts' feature on content pages, group posts together by date rather than list them out
  • Modify XML feeds
  • Figure out if pinging blog services really makes any difference at all
  • Build an auto-pinger just for good measure
  • Move on to less nerdy topics...
  • Pre-order the new Monkey Island games from Telltale at some point before July 6th
  • Yes, Monkey Island: click here for more info
  • Also get credit card ready to purchase Sam & Max for XBLA
  • I heart Telltale Games
