Read my Palm, redux

| No Comments
            

Having so enjoyed the experience of reading eBooks on my Palm, I became obsessed with the idea of learning how to create my own eBooks for the Palm Reader. I downloaded all the software I needed, then spent the weekend crafting a Perl script that would let me convert a given set of HTML pages into properly formatted PML, and thus to create a well-formed eBook.

Not to put too fine a point on it, it worked like a charm. I've now made several of the features at my Web site available as eBooks, which I can regenerate fairly easily if I ever update those pages. I've created a directory here for quick reference.

I'm kinda proud of myself.

We have tickets to see the Bertolt Brecht play "The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui" this evening. The cast includes Al Pacino, Billy Crudup, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Chazz Palminteri, and Charles Durning. Even if the play sucks, how could it fail to be fun to watch?

Wavering between 204.0 and 204.5.

What can I say? We bought a whole mound of Halloween candy on Thursday, and then the little shits in our neighborhood stayed away from our door in droves. We must not have known the secret sign to place in the window that tells parents it's okay to trick-or-treat at our house. Either that or someone painted lamb's blood around the lintel.

That Elizabeth Hurley is so cool. She just sent me email offering to give me free pictures of Paula Abdul naked. How many other big stars would be that generous?
