I am too attached to my old Delicious account. I spent more than an hour attempting to migrate links that I have collected from my old Delicious account to my new one (just because I want a change of usernames). I lost about 300 links and it pains me. Upon realization the hour’s passed and my obsessions stem from having an irrational sense of ownership to my links collection, I gave up. Moving on this is my new Delicious account. Nice to meet you, I’m Kah Wee.
Founders of YouTube, Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, has acquired Delicious from the hands of Yahoo saving it from ceasing operations.
YouTube Founders Acquire Delicious
Today, we’re pleased to announce that Delicious has been acquired by the founders of YouTube, Chad Hurley and Steve Chen. As creators of the largest online video platform, they have firsthand experience enabling millions of users to share their experiences with the world. They are committed to running and improving Delicious going forward.
Providing a seamless transition for users is incredibly important for both companies. Yahoo! will continue to operate Delicious until approximately July 2011. When the transition period is complete, your information will be moved over to Delicious’ new owner.
Thank you for your patience in this time of transition and thank you for using Delicious! [Source: Delicious]
AVOS is a new Internet company, led by the founders of YouTube, Chad Hurley and Steve Chen. AVOS is located in San Mateo, California.
I was more hesitant lately placing new links into Delicious considering its possible closure. Yahoo hasn’t got a good track record of keeping non-revenue-generating ventures up and running. I say it’s great news for Delicious users.
Damn. Why nobody told me this before. This is like a quick hack for food or something. Neat!
How to Eat a Chicken Wing
I eat it all messy with bits of chicken remaining. I probably only finish 80% of the chicken wing with the rest gone to waste.
These days I am pretty much using Google Chrome which I think is probably a little faster than Firefox. It actually loads faster than Firefox and the Pokéball inspired Chrome logo is lovely for Pokémon lovers like me.
But the thing that pisses me off is the refreshing. Firefox has Ctrl + F5 which does a forced refresh. Is there something similar in Chrome?
Also missing in Chrome is the beloved Delicious and Firebug plugins.
Delicious is the tool I primarily used to store my bookmarks. (So if it’s down or have a corrupted database, I’ll be crying at one corner.)
The new interface is great except for this:
Accessing too quickly? It happens too often for me these days. I know I’m good at quick clicks but don’t do this to me Delicious, at least not when I am your faithful user the past one and half years. We’re still cool with each other right?
- I like the new shade on blue in Delicious. #
Opera 9.5 is out! You can download it here.
Opera has been my main browser since 4 years ago. It’s the underdog of browser wars. It’s quick and light-weight but give web designers more problems with more browsers to support. But I just love the speed Opera offers.
Today I use Firefox 3 Release Candidate 2 and I’m loving it more, thanks to the Firebug and Delicious plug ins. I was previously using Apple Safari but it crashed quite often and cannot open that many tabs.
I, by the way, open around 30 tabs. I’ll just leave interesting links there on my browser until I am free to take a look at them. And I always feel sad when my browser crash and I lost all my links and have to reopen them again.
Here’s the security status of icio.us:
Maybe that’s why del.icio.us wants to change their website to delicious.com. It’s much easier to tell others too. No idea how much they purchase delicious.com for though.
If you have Firefox 3 and wish to install the Delicious plugin, you can install the beta one here.
I just tried FriendFeed yesterday and it’s really cool. It aggregates all sites that have an RSS feed for you. It gathers my Digg, Mixx, Pownce, Twitter, Google Reader, Reddit, Google Talk, YouTube, my other blog, Delicious and Facebook account. It aggregates almost everything I have even though I only actively use a quarter of them. Erm, probably lesser.
Excessive information overload for noise lovers. It’s cool if you have friends using this service and you can see what they’re doing in the other websites.
However, FriendFeed may be a little bit of privacy invasion to some people. But for me, I do not really care about privacy any more honestly. I just sort of given up this little right of mine.
