Virtual Private Servers

I miss hosting my site on my own Linux box and being able to install PERL modules, tweak the server settings, etc. I’m too cheap to sign up for a Dedicated Server, so I’m investigating signing up for a Virtual Private Server instead. I’m leaning towards Adiungo or Tektonic, unless anybody sends me feedback about other hosts.

Sneak peak at the 2nd Ave subway

The artist sketch of the proposed 2nd Ave subway station looks pretty sweet (hopefully the Fulton St station will look similar after the massive upcoming renovation). But the coolest thing about this new line (the “T”) is that I’ll be able to spell my name using subway symbols.

iTalk

I preordered an iTalk so long ago that I had forgotten about it until it arrived today. Basically, it plugs into your iPod and functions as a voice recorder. Seems to work so far. Maybe I should try it out at the NY Bloggers event next week at the Apple Store?
