Overkill

March 17th, 2003

Alright, one of you people is a little weird. Since I’ve started including the full content of posts in my feed, I’ve definitely seen an increase in aggregators. (and a decrease in page view) Thats fine.

But you, the one who is running RssBandit, nntp//rss, and something involving LWP, thats over doing it a bit. I promise I serve the same RSS feeds to all user-agents, really. One aggregator should be good enough.

Laze talks about using gnews2rss to extract a custom RSS feed from Google News, and then parse and re-display it with Magpie. Home rolled news clipping service, like this one on progeria.

Straw, and changes

January 27th, 2003

Started using Straw yesterday. I’m very happy with it. Works great. Especially once I figured out how to get links to open in Mozilla instead of Galeon. And is much more scalable in an era of RSS everywhere. (see cvs2rss) The only change I really want is the ability to categorize feeds, and only see certain groups, because I already have a lot of feeds I track.

In lieu of this switch, I’m retiring the Tracking sidebar, if you use it, I can keep it available somewhere if you like, let me know. I’m replacing it with an MLP log like Anil’s instead. A form I’ve been finding very liberating today.

Do need to figure out how to work in the blogroll aspects.
