'[OT] do you digg the PICList?'

For anyone who doesn't know, (like I didn't) digg.com is sort of like
slashdot but it allows anyone to submit a link. Newly submitted items are
held in
http://digg.com/diggall until some minimum number of people "dig" them (by
clicking on "digg it" below the number which is to the left of the title)
and then they are shown on the main page at:
http://digg.com where lots more people will see them and digg them or not.

The piclist.com server was down yesterday because a specific beginners
project was "dug" by a lot of people at the traffic crashed the server.
Interestingly enough, that crash has allowed me to see something that I was
doing wrong and I've corrected it which should improve reliability in the
future.

I figured it wouldn't hurt to show a little pride and list the actual MIT
PICList on digg and see if there are any poor lost PIC souls out there who
have been looking for a nice community on the web, so I submitted an item
for the list itself.

If you want to "digg" the PICList, click here:
digg.com/hardware/2000_member_PIC_micro_controller_MIT_email_list,_FA
Q_and_Huge_Archive

Lets see if the web site can manage another "digging" and stay up this time.

P.S. There is also an "aggregator" of Slashdot, digg and another thing
called del.icio.us (which I haven't investigated yet) at:
http://www.diggdot.us/ This site is nice because all the stories from the
other three show up here and it tells you which ones you haven't seen yet.

Be warned... You can actually waste more time reading diggdot.us than you
can reading the PICList.

Digg is fun.  If you don't have time to read all of it, they do an audio
/video podcast also, two of the guys (Alex Albrecht and Kevin Rose) from
the old (good) TechTV days.

You can subscribe to it and listen to it during a commute to work, and
know about the top ten (or so) most "dugg" articles/websites submitted
each week.

They also throw in other stuff, and during a recent podcast I heard them
talking about bigcharts.com -- useful finance site.

I really like del.icio.us.  I use it for almost everything I bookmark,
the only exception is for work-related things like intranet websites.
You could probably learn a lot about me from the things I post there.

del.icio.us/alexjh

I like it for several reasons:

- tagging.  It never made sense to me that a bookmark had to be in a
specific category, and tags are the best way that I've seen to
categorize things in multiple places without being too messy.
- RSS feeds.  I subscribe to my inbox rss feed, so that means that I
can follow other people's bookmark lists, and also people can send me
things that they think I'll be interested in.  I haven't been spammed
yet...
- browser integration:  Right click on a page or link, choose
del.icio.us->Bookmark, type in a few tags, and it's done.
