I’m using del.icio.us a lot in order to store my bookmarks etc and got to thinking, when will Yahoo start charging for this data or tying you to a yahoo account similiar to the way Flickr seems to be going, what if the server goes down blah blah

Anyway previously I was backing up my data into an xml file but I’ve since discovered scuttle

It’s basically an opensource del.icio.us type tagging system which allows you to import your del.icio.us xml file. It supports most of the del.icio.us api which means any plugin that works in del.icio.us should work with scuttle with some easy modifications.

You can check out my installation here

ADSL 2+ ready along with VOIP which doesn’t tie you to a particular carrier, I’ve set up a SIP proxy account with iptel which is free of charge, now I just need to buy myself a RJ11 cable arrgghhhh

Google just announced their new RSS Reader, called Google Reader. It’s browser-based (of course) and has similar look n’ feel to Gmail. Very Ajaxy. I’ll play with it some more and report back later. For now, here’s more info from SEW:
