The Art of Computer Programming, not online at Amazon

Oddly enough, the ultimate CS classic – Donald Knuth’s The Art of Computer Programming, Volume 1 (or any of the other volumes) aren’t available via Amazon’s “Look inside this Book” feature.

Feed Your Reader – auto subscribe with NetNewsWire

Thanks to an email from Brent Simmons, the Firefox extension Feed Your Reader lets you auto-subscribe to a feed from Firefox to NetNewsWire.

Just install Feed Your Reader and select the “Feed Protocol” option in the extension’s one and only configuration option. Then right click (or hold-click) and select “Subscribe to This Page”. You’ll be prompted by Firefox to choose an application to work with the “feed://” protocol. Just find NetNewsWire and you’re all set.

Finally. Tell me where to go.

I’m going on a week+ of vacation to the Denver area, up to Wyoming and over to South Dakota. I will happily accept suggestions on must-sees, places to avoid, restaurants and of course- wifi hotspots.

I’ll be hopefully doing some flickr posts too.

I know you can’t wait.

Update: Thanks for the recommendations for the trip, I wasn’t checking email frequently enough, but I’ll be sure to check them out *next time*.
