    You know, I just noticed that and want to thank Doug for getting this done as well. I can now add it to my GoogleReader feeds.

    RSS is up and running

    For those who might not come to the site through the 'front door', DougO has updated the home page/archive page and there's now a shiny new RSS button.

    Thanks, DougO!

    A RSS feed is toward the top of my feature list. I started work on it awhile back but then got distracted and never finished it up. I'll try to work on it again soon.

    Bumping the RSS feed request

    Having an RSS feed would be most excellent. Any chance it's going to happen any time soon?

    Months away from being released, that is. That means several more months away from actually working with a fair degree of reliability, after having two or three bug and security patches applied.

    Hmm, I wasn't aware of that. I'll check it out. Thanks for the info.

    RSS = Really Simple Syndication (or some other clever thing). It was thunk up originally to distribute news articles among several "subscriber" web sites. An RSS feed is nothing more than a web link to a special page. What the page has is a list of items or articles, usually just headings and summaries, laid out in a data format (XML) that can be read by an RSS reader. The upshot is to have a standard format that summarizes the data on a webpage, so it can be viewed quickly for new items or just quick browsing. From there anything can grab and post-it-store-it-shove-it with little fuss or worrying about page formats and layouts and other such nonsense, skipping all the web-page-styles and just ripping out the substance. Many new surfer RSS programs automagically check a feed for you, thus providing a running update of what's on a website without manually checking the website (and every other one you might lurk about) everytime you think it might have something new. Which is one reason it's getting more popular now.

    If you want something that will notify you for update and flag the new items and let you configure a refresh rate and actually work like a "live feed" and such, I highly suggest this.
    The thing I like about "Live Bookmarks" is the fact that a)it's not a seperate program and b)that is lets me choose when I want to check on any given site. Having said that, feedreader looks interesting and I may give it a try on my work laptop since I use a Mac at home.

    Hey DougO,

    I was wondering if it was possible to set up an RSS feed of JMS' comments from usenet? Essentially updating anytime the main page updates with a new comment from JMS?

    I just found a good extension for rss reading in FireFox , thus the question. I've been rssing everything interesting I can.

    Thanks!
