This might take a while…
I had a problem with the new and very nice favicon support in NetNewsWire Lite 1.0.7b1, and ended up exporting my subscriptions, throwing my prefs and the files in ~/Library/Application Support/NetNewsWire, which lead to all my feeds being completely unread (but the missing favicon did show up).
According to the release notes, the bug was squashed in 1.0.7fc1.
Thanks a lot to Brent Simmons for making this excellent RSS reader, and for making a free version available.
The addition of favicons in NNW is also why I finally got off my duff and created a favicon for this site. It certainly won’t go in the favicon hall of fame, but at least it’s something. It’s been a long time since I tried to create anything graphically pleasing in 16 pixels by 16 pixels. Urgh. Massive respect to icon designers–that’s one tough gig.

Another book roundup, including some stellar athletes and soldiers, what might be the most jaded, soul-weary protagonist ever, and some grimdark fantasy.
The Internet is getting creepy, and Nic is breaking out his tinfoil hat after newspaper paywalls push him over the edge.
Nic is tired of tech sites obsessing over Apple’s financials and business strategy. So very tired.
Nic reads a book about the processed food industry and is incensed.
Computers are complicated. This brings out the irrational in people.
Nic proposes the loan word Rechthaberei be incorporated into American English.
The Core Dump is back! Books were read during the hiatus. Includes The Coldest Winter, Oh, Myyy!, Tough Sh*t, The Revolution Was Televised, The Rook, Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore, Gun Machine, Fortress Frontier, Standing in Another Man’s Grave, and The Memory of Light.
This site will return in February.
From a true patriot to a world-weary detective, a dead god, and a civilization about to sublime from the galaxy, this book roundup spans the gamut. Includes Where Men Win Glory, Wild, Inside the Box, The Black Box, Three Parts Dead, Red Country, and The Hydrogen Sonata.
Springsteen gives a concert in Phoenix. It’s fantastic.
