    Political Realities ^ | 05/23/13 | LD Jackson
    When Google first announced it would be shutting down Google Reader, I was very disappointed. I had come to rely on Google Reader to keep up with my favorite blogs. I went about trying to find a replacement RSS reader and had settled on The Old Reader. I really didn't like it as well as Google Reader, but it worked. Then, I came across NewsBlur. I couldn't use it at first because the free account signup had been disabled. This was mainly due to the sudden onslaught of former users of Google Reader. When the growing pains were finally worked...

    since free republic updates new headlines every so often, i'm trying to find where my live rss feeds can list more than 24 items per subscription, is there a way to extend the max amount of just 24 items only? i am using the latest version of Firefox and it doesn't give me the option to lengthen the max amount of items per subscription. i was told it might also be a restriction as well, but if any of you tech savvy peeps could let me know, since i use the feed sidebar and read down the list of every...

I have a Chumby One, you have to scroll down a bit to see it. It's smaller than the Chumby8 but I LOVE it! Think of it as an alarm clock on steroids. Mine does get lots of stuff including news from several sources, several types of internet and terrestrial radio, webcams and more. I'd really like to get FR on it, maybe an RSS feed?...

    Electric cars manufactured by Nissan surreptitiously leak detailed information about a driver's location, speed and destination to websites accessed through the vehicle's built in RSS reader, a security blogger has found. The Nissan Leaf is a 100-percent electric car that Nissan introduced seven months ago. Among its many innovations is a GSM cellular connection that lets drivers share a variety of real-time data about the car, including its location, driving history, power consumption, and battery reserves. Carwings, as the service is known, then provides a number of services designed to support “eco-driving,” such as break downs of the vehicle's energy...

    Does anyone have any good RSS feeds for gun sites/news? I went through the "Top 1000" RSS (not sure how the site arrived at that) and was surprised not to see even a single gun RSS feed. I mean, in a nation with what, 200,000,000 guns and about 50 million gun owners, why aren't there feeds around every turn? Frustrating, to say the least. The NRA has an RSS feed but the GOA does not.

    If you stare at the lines in the road, you’ll never see where you’re going. While the Devil might be in the details, if you want to know where he’ll be you need to look for the pattern. Pattern-recognition is one of the trickiest pieces of programming, partially because we know very little about how our brains work, and partially because humans make it look so damned easy. Our brains are designed to spot and record patterns. Sure, it takes a long time. Evenutally, enough memories gel to enable us to look back and assign confidence of some correlation (if...

    The dastardly Mumbai terror attack of November 26 & 27, has claimed the lives of over 125 people and injured scores more. This terror attack in our analysis has been planned & orchestrated by the Sangh Pariwar and its allies within the security apparatus to counter the investigation of the ATS led by Hemant Karkare, so as to nullify and divert attention from the true face of BJP-RSS Parivar's involvement in fermenting terror attacks in the country. The basic aim was to totally subvert every attempt by the ATS (Anti-Terror Squad) that was undoubtedly uncovering the nefarious terrorist cells within...

    At least 40 people have been injured in religious clashes on a remote delta island in India's eastern state of West Bengal, police say. Fifteen of those injured in the clashes on Sagar island, at the confluence of the Ganges and the sea, were policemen. Supporters of the Hindu nationalist Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh(RSS) and local Muslim villagers clashed after the RSS set up a camp in the area. This caused unease amongst Muslims, who have a large population on the island. The RSS is active throughout India and is the ideological fountainhead of India's main opposition party Bharatiya Janata Party...
  • How to look at the RSS satellite-derived temperature data: has the earth warmed or cooled?

    It’s already well known that the Remote Sensing Systems satellite-derived temperature data has released the January figures: the finding is that it’s colder this January than it has been for some time. I wanted to look more carefully at this data, mostly to show how to avoid some common pitfalls when analyzing time series data, but also to show you that temperatures are not linearly increasing. (Readers Steve Hempell and Joe Daleo helped me get the data.) First, the global average. The RSS satellite actually divides up the earth in swaths, or transects, which are bands across the earth whose...

In the former case, I would upload the single episode plus one RSS file that points to the episode, correct? Then I would tell the aggregator the location of the RSS file. When I'm finished, the aggregator points to the RSS file and the RSS file points to the single podcast file (?) What about the latter case, where a single podcast consists of...

He also said that Microsoft is adding its own functionality to RSS in the version the company is implementing in Internet Explorer (IE) 7. Because of this, its...

One Christian was seriously wounded and scores of others were beaten and injured, including women and children. The incident occurred on Easter Eve in Chalakud Taluna when 25 militants from the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)—the paramilitary wing of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)—disrupted the viewing of Mel Gibson’s movie and started attacking the spectators, one of whom George Kutty, was seriously hurt.

But without a job in radio, it seemed likely to remain one of those unfulfilled passions — until something called "podcasting" came along. Now, Patchett's creating shows and sending them out to the masses every day — not over the airwaves to radios but over the Internet, from his personal computer in Carlsbad, Calif. His listeners download his shows to their iPods and other digital music players. Patchett, 43, is among a growing number of people...

RSS or ‘Really Simple Syndication’ is an internet format that lets news sites publish a index of current stories with brief descriptions and links to the main stories. Because the readers only view full stories if they are interested in the topic, this saves bandwidth and time. RSS feeds are available from almost every major news site...

    If you aren't familiar with the technology, RSS is a method for news & opinion sites (such as this one) to publish an index of new topics in XML such that visitors to the site can get regular updates using a news aggregator client (such as 'Feedreader'). The benefit to the user is that they don't need to continually refresh their browser because the reader just checks the index every couple minutes and lets the user know if any new topics exist. They can stay on top of hundreds of sites without any effort and can instantly go to a...
