Labels vs. Folders

Couldn't agree more, Rafe on Labels versus folders, labels win. I have fallen in love with labels and started experimenting with them in Thunderbird, dumbing everything into one folder with lots of labeling. Now if I could just do the same with my home direcory or My Documents. And if MovableType made it easier to label/categorize. Well Thunderbird needs more than 5 label options.

Calendar Woes and Solutions

arcterex mentioned his, or the client's, woes with trying to find a Lotus Notes calendar replacement.

I have recently been given a similar task, the desire to share calendars/schedules between the Kentucky office, Australia and the world travelers. At first I put it to the back burner, thinking it would take more development time that allowed but some random link mentioned Mozilla Calendar Standards Based Calendar Client Project.

All by it's lonesome, not a big deal, but checking out iCalShare lead to,
PHP iCalendar is a php-based iCal file parser. Its based on v2.0 of the IETF spec. It displays iCal files in a nice logical, clean manner with day, week, month, and year navigation, printer view, RSS-enabled, and searchable. It supports 12 languages, is fully theme-able, and has complete timezone support.
Which combined with, How can I share my calendars?
To share your calendars, you need access to a webDAV server. If you run your own web server, you can install mod_dav, a free Apache module that will turn your web server into a webDAV server. Instructions on how to set it up are on their website. Once you set up your webDAV server, you can publish your calendar to the site, then subscribe to it from any other Mozilla Calendar. Automatically updating the calendar will give you a poor man's calendar server.
And maybe a very nice solution. I still have to play around with WebDAV on IIS, but this might be a workable combination. Oh, the delicious side effect might be to get everyong off of Internet Explorer, Outlook and Outlook Express.

Netscape Toolbar Totarial


NewsMonster is a newsreader and manager for RSS content, news, and the semantic web.
It has an immpressive feature list, though doesn't claim to support RSS 2.0. It could be the basis for my RSS Reader nirvana with it's Repitle server component side.
[via Russell Beattie Notebook]

Update: NewsMonster *does* support RSS 2.0
One of the features I point out is that it supports *all* versions of RSS.

This is due to the miracles of XSLT ;)

�Our contributions to the Mozilla open source effort will start with adding Python and Perl bindings to XPCOM, Mozilla's component architecture. This change will open the Mozilla architecture and eventually make it available to Perl and Python programmers.�
I hope this gets Perl and Python into the main Mozilla distribution.

"Work is underway to get SVG support into Mozilla. Dean Jackson issued a call to arms for developers to work on the project.

Jeremy Lea responded, pointing to some efforts he had made getting SVG working in Mozilla, but had to stop due to time constraints."

SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics, a W3C standard.
