On April 2, the city of Ann Arbor is holding a public hearing about the proposed location at Abbott Elementary school in Ann Arbor. It’s crucial that supporters of the skatepark turn out to demonstrate to the community that a skatepark will have a positive impact on Ann Arbor. So, if you’re in Ann Arbor on the 2nd and would like to see a skatepark built in Ann Arbor, please come to the meeting and show your support.

Thank you for disenfranchising me and every other Michigan democrat. It’s fulfilling to know that this time, my vote really doesn’t count.
Please come show your support for an Ann Arbor skatepark by attending the upcoming meeting of the Ann Arbor Parks Advisory Commission (PAC).

We’re going to get a free, public, concrete skatepark built in Ann Arbor. If you skate, or if you support skateboarding, go sign the petition to help us show Ann Arbor city council that there’s broad support for a free skatepark in Ann Arbor. It doesn’t matter where you live, or if you skate at all. If you support skating, sign it.
Right now the process is in the early planning stages. The city has expressed interest in the project and we need to get as many skaters, parents, and supporters involved in the group as possible. So tell as many people as you can. We need to get the word out.
I’ve learned a lot of things from various open source frameworks, especially CakePHP. One of the most impressive things about Cake, and Ruby on Rails for that matter, is its magic methods in its data model class,
findAllBy which allow you to query the database by calling a non-existent method like
findAllByColor ('blue'). I’ve implemented similar methods in the home-grown framework that I use at work. Here’s how to do it.
Just saw a license plate that read “ANARKY”
I downloaded the Safari 3 beta (for Mac) and started using it. It does replace Safari 2 in your /Applications folder as well as the WebKit Framework and you have to restart after installing.
- It feels snappier
, except… It starts up super slowly. The window draws and then takes around 30 seconds to be responsive on my Dual 2 GHz G5. Could be something with my configuration, but it’s annoying. Kind of makes me want to switch back to Safari 2.This was an issue with my preferences, specifically the IncludeDebugMenu item. With the debug menu, startup is painful; without th preference set, it starts up right away.
- Input Managers no longer work,
so no Inquisitor(Inquisitor works just fine), no Safari Stand(Safari Stand seems to work for the most part—no syntax coloring, though), no Safari Tidy. In fact having those Input Managers prevents Safari from starting up altogether. View Source shows a blank window.This was an issue with SafariSource. Disabled and everything works great, just no syntax coloring.
- Replaces the dock, so I’ve got the annoying white background back. Hopefully Transparent Dock will be updated for this, but I won’t hold my breath.
- Inspect Element is nice, but I think that this is only available with the debug menu available and since this is a huge performance hit…
- Reorderable tabs are great, but there’s no way to move tabs between windows other than moving to a new window.
- I was disappointed to see it still uses brushed metal.
- Oh and it’s available for Windows. Hmmm…
- Oh Yeah Labels work properly now!
