- Palm Pre
Several people have persuaded me that I need to change my phone. I've elected to purchase a Palm Pre. Rooting them, and installing Debian is trivial, though I think its missing an openssh client - so I can read my mail in mutt via the device.
(I've seen mentions of the "scary black window" as a terminal; it isn't obvious how well that works.)
I went shopping yesterday to purchase one, but because my mobile phone contract doesn't end for another 9 days I'd have to pay an extra fee. Instead I'm going to wait 9 days and get it for free.
- Getting Bigger
Having randomly remembered the idea that people shrink over the course of a day due to gravity affecting the spine I decided to test this.
For a few days in a row I measured my height before going to bed, and then again in the morning. It certainly appears to be true, average difference in height is about 9mm for me.
- SEO - Is it hard?
- I was involved with the setup of a new site last weekend. Today it is top-5 when searched for by two pretty broad keywords in google.
This does not seem unusual for me - though I appreciate there is a difference between "site being popular/succeeding" and "site being findable".
(I remember once attending an interview for a hotel portal site. The interview wasn't that interesting, but I remember they perked up a lot when I said "Search google for Steve Kemp - I come top".)
