I just made my first RSS feed :-)


I just made my first RSS feed for the site at work, and it didn't take long at all. What does that mean in plain English? You know how most websites have some sort of a news feed, either a page listing news items which you can read more, or maybe a weblog like this. Anyway, an RSS feed is a special way of presenting that news so that modern web browsers (Firefox, Safari, Opera) and stand-alone programs can read it, making it even easier to keep up-to-date with your favorite news. Furthermore there are marketing aspects whereby other sites can show your news on their site, syndicating it as it were. It is this last aspect that I plan on pushing at work, once I get some time to do some planning on it.

Disney goes online


We're not into the insanely syrupy (cavity-creating, brain-numbing) sweetness that is the modern Disney, but in case you need your daily dose they have released a free online game you can play with people around the world.

For those of you who might be curious about such things, this is the same type of game as those Dungeons-n-Dragons games only with a slightly different story line, and less ogres, so its still as evil, naughty and utterly demon-worshipping as the rest of them.


Free "zip" program


If you're sick of the nagging popups from using Winzip or something similar you might like to try FilZip. Its completely free and has some nice features. Because I'm (once again) in charge of workstation management at work I'm going to have us standardize on this instead of WinZip. Give it a try.

Simple & free image editor


More software for this evening. This time it's a free image/photo editor. It doesn't do everything under the sun, that's what Photoshop is for, but for people who want to do touch-ups and other simple things this one could be great.
