I know some of you really geeky folks are using RSS aggregators to read stuff from your favorite sites, so if you'd be so kind, give the CoasterBuzz news feed a shot and let me know if it's working for you.
One that I'm really glad to have, mind you... I now have CoasterBuzz fed alongside Ars Technica and SlashDot into my IM program's contact list. I don't have time to actually keep up with Slashdot or Ars, but if I see an interesting headline come along, a quick double-click on the headline in Trillian's window launches a web browser to the right place. Coasterbuzz News and "recent forums" are now on this list. Should help me keep up a bit while at work.
Forum feed isn't working for me. News works fine! I downloaded a program called NetNewsWire Lite to view Jeff's (and other) feeds, and was wondering what other similar programs are available for the Mac.
Sometimes I feel like Rip Van Winkle waking up into a whole new world. I was one of the first kids in school to get a home computer and just when I turn off that Apple IIc, the internet, something called "code" and a lot of weird acronyms appear, none of which appear to actually do anything tend to result in just taking up my time.
While I was waiting for NetNewsWire Lite to download last night, I did a quick search for "sherlock RSS" on Google and found a Sherlock plug-in that seems to work. Don't know about other browsers, but in Safari you can click on "add this channel" and it automagically launches Sherlock, then you get a warning about the content coming from a third party, then "RSS" appears in the list of Sherlock channels. Select it, then punch in the appropriate URL, and it pops up in the Sherlock data window. Click on an entry and it appears in the lower pane; double click on an entry and it takes you to the page in your default browser.
Jeff-- My guess is that your code is OK, but some of the RSS readers are sloppy. :)
