Lots of Links

Following a is a list of cool stuff I didn't have time to write individual posts about.

Random Web stuff

MyOpenID - If you don't know what OpenID is, think of it this way, one sign in authentication process for every website that supports it. Drupal 6 has it, Yahoo has it, lots of places have it - learn more about OpenID and get your own.

Tagurself - enter a feed link or a url and it generates a tag cloud for you.

TeamViewer - excellent remote desktop sharing software - and its free!

Microsoft SharedView - remote connection - sharing applications - great for training people how to do things remotely.

Link authors' names & profiles on a team blog with blogger

If you have several people posting to a blog, you might want to set it
up so that each person's name at the end of their posts links to their profile. Here's how to make it work:
First, what you'll have to do is get the profile addresses for each person who will be posting to the blog. You'll notice that each one looks something like this: where "XXXXXXX" is a particular ID number. Make a note of that number for each person.
Next, add the following code to your template, between the HTML tags:
var team = new Array();
team["First Member"]="XXXXXXX";
team["Second Member"]="YYYYYYY";
team["Third Member"]="ZZZZZZZ";
function makeprofilelink (authorname) {
var pid = team[authorname];
document.write("" + authorname + "");
