☞ Nothing in common

  • This is outstanding; I can now have WordPress ping me when someone comments on my blog (as well as subscribing to other blogs to see when they are updated). Lovely feature, thanks WordPress.
  • By way of a bookmark as I am sure I will need to refer back to this one day as it contains Resolution 1 (proposed by Oracle, seconded by BEA) “It is the sense of the Executive Committee that the JCP become an open independent vendor-neutral Standards Organization where all members participate on a level playing field .”
  • This free sampler on Amazon US (only) has ten pretty good tracks as long as you are a fan of tango/bossa nova-style music.

    The Jabber support for WP sounds awesome! My big concern about WP is security — seems the “attack surface” is large… How do you maintain it so it’s both cool AND safe?

    I recall a post a long time ago from sogrady about pulling nightly from version control… is that the best practice?


  2. Bossa Nova came out of the educated classes in 1950s Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It was a contrast to the hotter samba and frevo, in some sense a descendant of the prior choro tradition from Rio.

    Tango is from Argentina, but came from male-dominated dancing in urban bordellos, and then had a few waves of evolution through the 20th century. Usually considered an urban music, although there are definitely folkloric tangoistas.

    Argentinian folklore music is varied, but I really like the cross-cultural chamame from the cross-border plateaus.

    Minor quibble I know… just jarring, like talking about a Commodore C64 mobile phone or such. 😉

    • Thanks, John! I was just indicating the range of styles rather than making a precise statement, but your posting certainly adds colour.
