And thank you to all the random people out there creating/maintaining cool plugins and/or scripts.

Lots of small updates to the website.

And maybe too much twitter integration?

Resume formats

Sunday, February 21st, 2010

I wish I had just built my resume from scratch in xhtml. Instead I attempted to build a nice openoffice template. For print and for exporting to pdf this was fine. Even exporting to doc format worked adequately because the formatting only really involved simple tables.

It was not until I started applying to various organizations, each with their own online process, that I realized simple text/html would be the most flexible solution. Documents are usually just scanned for keywords/text anyhow. It also made more sense for integrating with the web. Funny how it occurred to me after I had spent the time 😉 (I had planned an xhtml version down the road but should have started with it.)

Either out of laziness or experimentation I exported my opendocument to html. At first glance all seemed to render well. I decided the sooner I had something up the better so I posted it. Then I looked closer at the code. I’ve feared auto-generated html for some time and this reminded me why. Some of the extra cruft might just have been for openoffice but I wanted a clean xhtml copy. The stuff to fiddle with never ends. I need a job. I’m bright and hard working.

Quick thought on avatars :P

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

Apparently everyone loves facebook, twitter and that movie… This is all fine but I still say all the cool people should have a:http://gravatar.com/

Another thought: I have lost track of all the ways in which I can integrate the popular social networking sites into my personal site. The best solution (without some sort of obvious quirk) is being thunk out…

@denislemire There are a number of AdobeAIR based twitter clients that work in linux but I don’t know how I feel about one more framework.

@denislemire I can’t seem to settle on a gnome twitter client. Most very basic and or unatractive. gwibber and pino seem decent but simple.
