BLO.GS not working.

The attempts to ping has not been successful last few times I tried to ping. Perhaps Yahoo is dumping the service. I still have to code from the time Jim released it and perhaps time to whip it out have the service under!

Simple Sharing Extensions for Atom and RSS, SSE 0.94

Of course Microsoft has to do something to all these simple thing and make extensions so that nothing will work after that! (Kidding I have not tested or verified any of this.) Anyway I was going to write about (Just make links basically) ATOM 1.0. But this made it easier. All in here.


The scope of Simple Sharing Extensions (SSE) is to define the minimum extensions necessary to enable loosely-cooperating applications to use XML-based container formats such as Atom and RSS as the basis for item sharing – that is, the bi-directional, asynchronous synchronization of new and changed items amongst two or more cross-subscribed feeds.

Simple Sharing extends the following specifications:
Atom 1.0 -
RSS 2.0 -

One of the guiding principles of SSE is to reinvent as little as possible(HA HA)—hence the use of Atom and RSS in this spec as the underlying format for exchanging SSE data. It is expected that there will be additional container format bindings for SSE in the future.

SSE continued here

Outline Processor Markup Language, OPML 1.0 specification

Well after looking up RSS 2.0 specification my next stop was at Outline Processor Markup Language, OPML 1.0 specification.
OPML an XML-based format that allows exchange of outline-structured information between applications running on different operating systems and environments.

In the summer of 2005 Dave Winer, released an open source OPML Editor, for Windows and Mac OS.

To learn more about outliners, the software category that inspired OPML, check out

The OPML spec has a liberal copyright, adapted from the copyright of the IETF, which has stood up well over time.

Dave Winer's OPML Validator came online in October 2005.

RSS 2.0 Specification

Have you ever wondered what RSS 2.0 specification is. I did not until I had to look it up for some of the work we do at FEEDotopia.
So here is where I read it at; RSS 2.0 at Harvard Law

Mixing that Most Paint apps fail! Krita on Linux does it with ease.

Today I saw this video on YT via this post on DIGG. Well I was working on mixing feeds at the time. Then I thought "How nice, I can mix two feeds and get an entirely new feed!" OK, I am still mixing and do not find anything worth while. So until then enjoy the nice colors!.

Quick Post via email
According to about page;
FeedRaider allows you to lasso the interesting parts of the web for your viewing pleasure on a single page.
(1) Gather feeds
(2) Create a page = stay updated and save time!
(3) Embed = feeds on your blog/page easily!
(4) Customize

developerWorks RSS feeds

I deal with a lot of developer networks and IBM developerWorks is one of the places I roam when I have time. I have built my own feed so that I can get exactly the news I want. There is also a iPhone feed ;), good if you are a developer and a iPhone user!

Google Supplemental index, stil in force, it is the name that got dumped.

All theses indexes, feeds and publications are a method to get in to a search engine index like Google or Yahoo and countless other search engines and be prominent in the results.
The Google maintained a supplemental index that to keep search results that dont quite have enough juice to make the main Google index. But according to a Webmaster central post, Supplemental goes mainstream, the gap between supplemental and the main index has been narrow and does not show as supplemental in your search results. But it is there, and if you are bored or extremely intelligent, you can guess where the results for that search came from.

To get more information such as the supplemental index (read more - and here's Matt's talk about it on video) and countless comments could be found by following the link below.
Happy Google feeding
