Videos and fans

Two observations:

YouTube / Google Video / MySpace Video can be an infinite time sink.

Most "professional" music videos suck, and are better made by fans.

Never buying a tmobile "day" pass again.

I bought a tmobile daypass at 10:30am this morning at the Starbucks in Kirkland. It was the quickest/easiest WiFi near to where I was waiting. When I got back to CapHill this afternoon I went to the local Starbucks to use the rest of the pass. I had assumed that "daypass" meant that it worked for 24 hours, or until midnight, or something like that.

No. It shut off at 6pm.

F*ckers.

I'm never going to buy a Starbucks tmobile pass, again.

An idea. Adding S3 to libCURL.

Lightbulb!

The only thing that makes the S3 REST interface "special" is it's proprietary but documented auth protocol.

LibCURL knows a bunch of different auth protocols.

If the S3 auth protocol is added to to libCURL, then any existing libCURL based app can immediately read/write to S3 without further change.

The folks at Amazon AWS ought to do this. Maybe they will pay me to do it...
