The House of C 021: No Such Thing as a Happy Developer The House of C 17 APR 2011

The above is pretty much every day in any programmer’s life. Which directly translates into there is no such thing as a happy developer. Unless of course you give them pizza. And hide them in a room where they can’t see their pointy-haired boss.

Or just let them work from home.

Ah, working from home. Now that makes me happy – and more money of course! :)

Paper.li – The Daily Twitter Newspaper CodeUnit 02 JUN 2010

Paper.li is a fun little service. The premise for it is pretty simple. Register your Twitter account with them and they will then analyze all links it can find in any of your recent posts and those of the people you are following as well.

Those links it will then use to build up a “newspaper” or sorts, linking in categorised images, videos, news articles and blog posts in a standard web news site layout.

This it does every 24 hours and will then notify you once each new edition is available to read.

Signing up is as simple as going to the paper.li site and creating a new newspaper, linking the paper to your Twitter account by means of the now established oAuth sign-in protocol (You can sign in with either your Twitter or Facebook account.) and presto, wait a couple of minutes as the site chugs out a newspaper, and then point all your friends to it if you are so inclined!

(In other words, go check out my newspaper at http://paper.li/craiglotter! :P)

Pointless, but kind of nifty in the same way which most Twitter-related services are!
