I wanted to share a new toy I've been playing with. It's a small application that 'mounts' your google documents on your mac. Once you've done this you can interact them much like any other drive (copy to and from, delete, etc.).
It's fun and useful in it's current state but be aware it doesn't do everything for everyone. Specifically it has limitations around renaming files (you can't) uploading new versions of files (you can't) and it occasionally needs a restart. It also only supports documents & spreadsheets -- No presentations for you!
It does require that you install MacFuse and it's Leopard only but it's pretty painless beyond that -- Just double click, fill in your credentials (stored securely in your keychain) and your good to go.
let me know what you think.
I've been working with my wife on our summer plans -- when & where to go. As it turns out Apple helped make part of them today. I know where I'll be June 9-13 For the most part it's a 'non' event -- we all kind of 'knew' there would be something either June, July or August with the good money on June. Furthermore it was no surprise that the iPhone would feature so prominently (especially after they announced 'iPhone 2.0 in June') -- In the invite they specifically mention 'three tracks': Mac, iPhone & IT. While I'm excited about the iPhone as a platform to develop for I really hope they don't shortchange the Mac side -- What I really hope they can talk about is 'what's next' for OSX after leopard but I'm a little worried they are so focused on iPhone that they won't have much to say. Time will tell....

Instead they give us a real API in a real language with a really nice toolchain... It was stunning.
Now the question is what to do? Do you jump on the bandwagon and furiously code to release something in June or do you sit back, let the tools mature (although brilliant they are still beta) and then swoop in after the initial wave where you see weak spots.
It's something I'll be thinking about over the next days.

RapidBlog 1.50b6 -- mostly defect fixes too numerous to count
Saturday, Feb 16 2008 10:24 PM | rapidblog
This is just a 'quick fix' to some defects in 1.50b2 -- Specifically RSS feeds weren't working reliably and the div ordering showed the wrong graphic. Recommended for anyone who was using 1.50B2

It's been a while since I posted a update to my blog but I've been working on this one for a while (not non stop which explains why it's taken so long) I've just pushed up a beta of RapidBlog 1.5 -- This includes most of the feature requests I've had in the last few months (well, most of the requests that are implementable)
- Upgrading the blog rendering to be more consistent with the built in blog
- Permalink can now be the title of the post
- Show/Hide comments can optionally be placed
- Error message improvements
- The blog comment introduction "Jack said...." can now be customized
- Setup now uses the standard RW setup method, not it's own window
- And you can re-arrange the order in which the blog renders out -- want the date below the body? no problem, just re-arrange it from the setup menu.
If you are brave and feel like playing give it a try. Of course you can always go back to the current shipping version so it's pretty safe to play with. If your favorite feature request is not included let me know as I'm still working on it and (of course) let me know what problems you see.
Enjoy Download 1.50B2

I was working on a new project tonight -- It's still early days so I don't want to talk about it yet but I came across one funny thing (which I think is new in leopard) -- If you ask for an alert panel and don't pass it a good message you get
A generic error message will be displayed, but the user deserves better.Gotta love the appkit guys at Apple
