I recently changed my email client to Mozilla Thunderbird and I wanted to move over all of my Google contacts to my local address book. Unfortunately though there didn't see to be a clear way to do this. Google will allow you to export them as vcards but you can't import vcards into Thunderbird. I did find a nifty extension for Thunderbird that will import version 2.1 vcards (link) but Google exports them as Version 3.
I finally got some free time to sit down and and look though Sam Ruby's book Agile Web Development with Rails. Now I am in the process to come up with a couple cool ideas for some open-source RoR projects to showcse my new skills. I was thinking of redoing the whole site using RoR, prototype, and HTML5 but Drupal is working out quite well for the blog, so I was thinking of using my new found knowledge of rails for developing a facebook application.
Well it's been a long time since I've posted a blog, almost a month, I really want to try to get these things out at least once a week but life has been busy.
