A Few Cool Ways To Use RSS Feeds

So what is all this RSS hype? I’ve known about RSS feeds, what they are for, and how to use them for quite a while. It’s not like they are new or anything! It wasn’t until recently that I started to actually use them though. I didn’t know what I was missing. RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication”. You can read a whole definition for RSS here. Basically, an RSS feed allows you to easily keep yourself up to date with the publisher of the feed.

There are all kinds of interesting feeds available. Instead of checking a favorite blog for instance, you can subscribe to their RSS feed and go back when new content is available. There are feeds for Podcasts, products, and there is even a feed available for letting you know which stores have the Nintendo Wii in stock.

I decided to list here a few ways that I’m using and enjoying RSS feeds. (more…)

Pardon my dust

I found that my theme was not working correctly in Internet Explorer (Gee, imagine that.)

Rather than search for another, I’ve decided to tweak it myself. Pardon my lack of styles for a bit.

Edit There. I’ve created a new template, based on my old template’s stylesheet, that uses YUI Grids instead of a home grown template layout. Not that I’m opposed to creating your own layout, but hey, I really didn’t want to find out why my left column displayed at the bottom of the page instead of where it was supposed to in Internet Explorer.

Anyway, this is still a work in progress. I need to go through the styles that I didn’t tweak much and delete things I don’t need. I also need to clean up the styles on some of the templates. I also need to re-comment all the template pages. Perhaps when I get a moment I’ll upload this somewhere.
