bits and bobs

Interesting article in LJ on federated search…short list announced for PM’s Literary Awards…the SLNSW has digitised some early accounts of Australian settlement including stuff by Tench…lifehacker mentioned cygwin, which I think I’d sort of heard of before but never tried. I’ve now installed it and it effectively gives me a unix shell in windows so I can access all my windows stuff with unix tools such as grep and vim. That will keep me happy mostly…until my work VPN s/w is compatible with firefox 3 at least.
