Notices for 24th September 2006 to 7th September 2006

A fresh bug of the moment. Seems to be all I update these days.

I thought I would also share this with you all: Isys Information Architects’ Interface Hall of Shame. There is a gamut of screenshots on offer, from complex issues for software designers down to the outright ludicrous (and quite hilarious). The page appears to be an archive of an earlier site; when I reported a few missing pages I found, I received this e-mail bounce:

Sorry. Although I'm listed as a best-preference MX or A for that host, it isn't in my control/locals file, so I don't treat it as local. (#5.4.6)

When you read the site, you will realise the delightful irony of that message. Along the same lines, this “helpful” suggestion is shown on the site’s 404 page:

The address was entered incorrectly. Check your spelling and try again.

Which is all very well, except that errors all redirect to http://homepage.mac.com/1/homepage404ErrorPage.html. Nothing looks incorrect about that address to me… Looks fine. Except it’s not where I wanted to be.

Due to the greatness of the site itself, though, I am going to archive myself a copy in case it ever disappears… And have me some overdue lunch. At half past three in the morning.

Woo, a new bug of the moment.

Do you want the good news or the good news first?

The good news is that I’ve resumed work on HTTP Werkzeug so the next public beta is getting closer. Talk to me if you have any thoughts before I finalise a public beta; I want this beta to be really good. If you want to play with an alpha build to see how the program is coming along, ask me.

The good news is that I have posted a new bug of the moment entry.
