The Refresh button

Two of my regular daily tools, Gmail and Google reader, stick a “refresh” button near the top of the page under the main navigation. They’ve trained me to look, mouse and click on that part of the screen to refresh the page. Pressing Ctrl-R or clicking the browser refresh button would do the same, but that’s not where I go. It’s been a while since I attempted Greasemonkey, so for kicks I whipped up a script to do this: Friendfeed Refresh Homepage Button. Enjoy.

YMCA of the Rockies

We spent the first part of the trip at YMCA of the Rockies. The place was just fabulous: swimming, hiking, nature education, horseback riding, hayrides, campfire & s’mores, to name a few of the activities on offer. They have a staff and signup sheets full of stuff to do. Kind of reminded me of summer camp when I was a kid, but with dish network in the rooms :-)

Back from vacation

I’m back from a week of vacation in Denver and surrounding areas. Had light connectivity, did a little reading and not much writing — a few tweets here and there — while away.
