Journal Journal: Rejection sucks

So I noticed the other day that a new link quietly appeared in the upper right hand corner of - "Personalized Home"

Within minutes I was happy with my personalized and customized new "home page" on

The experience was so much nicer than customizing that I wrote an article here on Slashdot about it - mostly I just wanted to let others know about it.

I'm not sure why the article was rejected, but it was... so I guess google's new personalization stuff will just have to succeed or fail on its own merits without the benefits of being slashdotted. Oh, well. :-)

Thanks, Sergey... you guys kick ass.

Journal Journal: Me & my websites (how else to start a journal?)


I'm Paul... is my personal site;
It currently uses a combination of
TWiki and tiddlywiki to confuse everyone. is where I work,
busily simplifying the heck out of linux.

I'm sure I'll think of more insightful
things to write next time; just wanted
to get the ball rolling.
