Today I passed 10,000 visitors to my blog. I've been keeping the data since December 2006. And I know who you are, Robyn.

Instead of correcting exams and writing a final exam for tonight, I have been installing software. I got Adium (OS X only) becaue iChat was irritating me with warning windows that continuously popped up, unbidden. As soon as I configured Adium, I learned why iChat behaved like that: I had not turned off a Chax plugin. I'll keep Adium for awhile because it has my jabber, AIM, dotmac and yahoo chat accounts all in one list and all connected at the same time.

I also trashed my Weatherpop. It has not been performing well, and the support and updates are gone. The website is dead. But VersionTracker had a comment about Meteo, which is open source, resides in my menubar as I prefer, and has the radar and graphics that I desire. You can download Meteo at sourceforge.net by clicking here.
Meteorologist is a full featured, free, and open source weather program for Mac OS X. This version of Meteorologist supports multiple cities, new version checking, and many more features.
I never put up today's photo of the day and I need a Wordless Wednesday photo. So I had better get outside to get some good shots. A great blue heron has flown by the front door every morning for the past week. Yet I still fail to take his picture. What's up with that? I'll be more vigilante the rest of the week.

I am considering not renewing my dot Mac account this October. I can't believe I am considering this. But Google has all I need for free. I can buy server space at Google for cheaper than Apple. I wouldn't be considering this except for the talk of Apple and Google cooperation. But I'll lose syncing and neat web publishing that is fluid with Apple software.

There will be no shortage of photos next weekend because this is the week of the Barton Fair! And I am going to the demo derby.

Thank you again, Robyn, for being number ten thousand!
