Yow!

Yow!

A long-anticipated storm front is finally rolling over Honolulu, and this one ain’t kidding around. The thunderclaps are stronger than any I’ve heard — or felt — in years. Windows are rattling. Car alarms are going off. As I type, the weather satellites are saying the meanest parts are right over our...

RSS? Yahoo!

RSS? Yahoo!

This is truly for geeks: Yahoo! has unveiled a beta of its RSS Headlines module for My Yahoo! users. This means everyone will soon be able to use the customizable Yahoo! portal page to quickly survey the latest stuff on your favorite independent news sites and weblogs, right alongside the...

A Crowd

A Crowd

Two little pink lines, a lot of panic, and finally, joy. I guess you could say we’re just keeping up with the McPhersons. And yes, we are insane, thank you very much.
