"Only a fool tests the depth of the water
with both feet."
- African proverb
how do you like the brand new Raging Pencils RSS feed? You
know... the little blue box above the Contact link. If you
be embarrassed. Until yesterday I didn't really know either.
I hadn't given much thought about including one of these
miracle devices to the RP until I was suddenly deluged by
one or two interested
parties inquiring as to when I was going to put down the
jaw bone and join the 21st-and-a-half century.
I was dubious about the necessity of the dang thing until
I found a clever youtube video discussing the ins-n-outs
of such a utility. What got my attention was the fact that
it had over a million hits.
"Uh-oh", I said to the cat, "I'm out of touch again."
Cat just licked its butt. Thanks, cat.
I went to about a dozen or so sites that claimed to know
everything about RSS feeds but they were about as helpful
and instructive as the Japanese army in Nanking. This wasn't
as easy as I thought it'd be. In fact, it was kinda hard.
Eventually I just stole some code and inserted my own links,
so it works,
though just barely. I promise I'll make some improvements
as soon as I have a few spare weeks but if any RSS wizard
out there would like to make suggestions the cat is all ears.
