Looking Good, Feeling Fresh

Yesss! I managed to put some time and effort into this blog and made it to my liking. Finally!

There are still some things I have to put up with for now, like the Flickr photo plugin behaving badly. It won’t consistently work with the lightbox module. If you click on one of my random pix it takes you to an HTML version of the gallery. Hmmm, time to override/add some event handlers then.

What constantly needs updating, are my favorite apps and open source section. Go check em out! I even made special sections for my apps:

I’ll try to keep them as updated as possible 🙂

How to create a personal RSS feed from my blog.

Install Firefox if you haven’t yet. It is not really necessary, but makes life on the web a lot easier.

Then take a look at all of the orange RSS feed icons you see on this site. They indicate some kind of broadcasting rays. The icon on the top of this site will give you a feed to all my posts. The feed icons next to the categories will only feed you the posts for that category.

Just go ahead, click on the feed icon of your choice.

What happens next is up to your computer. If it has apps installed that can handle RSS feeds, it will ask you with which of these applications you want to register the feed. If you have Firefox installed, you can also add the feed as a ‘live bookmark’. This will add the feed as a bookmark, and if you click it it open, you will see my most recent posts. Really handy if you want quick access to your favourite feeds (like mine :).

For all other feeds that I read I use Google Reader, because I LOVE internet apps. They go wherever I go. My laptop doesn’t :]
