So why not a blog mela

I’m trying to play catch up with the blogosphere.. but it is difficult when I have 221 feeds in Bloglines. Actually, there were more but I’m trying to trim down my folders to a more manageable size.

I got bored of simply reading, so I decided to host my own blog mela :D, so here we go…

Feedster Alerts allows you to get email of new posts of a blog or any new posts related to a search term. If you don’t want RSS feeds, this is the way to go. I remember somebody asking me about this (unfortunately, don’t remember whom), so I hope they see this…

The .NET BCL (Base Class Library) team had a blog day – they just blog the whole day and don’t work :) … turned out to have some interesting results. I liked Play the CLR acronym game! and The .Net Vision posts.

The latest show of LUGRadio featured Aaron Seigo who talked a good deal about KDE, and that was a great interview, especially considering the LUGRadio guys are gnome-rs ; but the suggestion to rewrite KDE/Gnome in Python was ridiculous…

The extremely popular Nero CD-Writing software is now available on Linux! But the question is are the ISVs going to see any RoI?

Python and OpenGL run on a Nokia Series 60 phone.

Kubuntu preview with the hot-off-the-repository KDE 3.4!

Gotta love this quote : “There are no shortcuts in life, unless you right click and find one” … JD, that’s a brilliant quote.

Vignesh tries to explain that there’s nothing like a platonic friendship that brings back that good feeling in you. I wholeheartedly agree because I have such a friend too.

Dilip asks what’s the big deal about Mittal and says Narayan Murthy’s driver is the real story.

Chugs has had to deal with a lady who says he shouldn’t have linked to her blog, when all he did was mention a list of sites using templates that were designed by him!

I think I better stop for tonight. Hopefully, I haven’t violated any blog mela norms.
