Syn_Promo - Day

Friday, June 11, 2004

1:57AM - New syndications: mozilla_themes and mozilla_exts

I've set up two new syndications here at Livejournal: mozilla_themes and mozilla_exts, for announcements of new Mozilla (Firefox etc) themes and extensions.


Crossposted to mozilla and syn_promo and torgo_x.

Current mood: mozilliose


As part of a new backend that we're in the process of installing, WWSB.tv -- a website for WWSB Channel 40 (Cable Channel 7), an ABC affiliate in Sarasota, Florida, USA -- has a feed for their news section: wwsb_rss

11:44AM - New Faultline.org Feed

I've created a feed for the news page of Faultline.org, "The California Environmental News Magazine."


11:56AM - List of comic feeds that have been dropped from the site

This is probably off-topic, but I wanted to try and compile a list of what's been deleted. This seemed like the best place to do it.

I plan on adding to this list...check back later to see what I've missed.

Chickweed Lane: chickweed_comic
Dilbert: dilbert_feed
Drabble: drabble_feed
For Better Or For Worse: fbofw_feed
Frazz: comic_frazz
Get Fuzzy: comic_getfuzzy
Luann: luann_comic
Monty: monty_comic
Peanuts: snoopy_feed
Pearls Before Swine: pearlzb4swine
Pibgorn: pibgorn_comic
Rose is Rose: roseisrose_feed

These are just the ones that I'm aware of now. What other ones have been removed from the site's syndication feature?


Added an mp3 blog called chromewaves.

1:13PM - Dilbert

New Dilbert feed! is_dilbert
I am sorry that I can't put the image directly on the feed but in a link instead, but otherwise it is a copyright issue.

Hopefully using the text 'Dilbert' isn't a copyright issue... I don't think it is, in fact I'm fairly certain... It's not like I'm claiming it to be mine... Gah... Why'd they have to shut down the other one :/

Oh well, Enjoy!


Current mood: okay

1:16PM - Comic feeds

I have no idea how long these will last, but here are some other RSS feeds for comics that may or may not have LJ accounts set up already-

Tapestry Comic RSS feeds

Incase anyone is interested in light of the recent feeds being shut down.


I must ask, since all these comic feeds were suspended by LJ, why do you continue to create them? You only invite wider reprecussions on all of us in the possible forms of new TOS crap, limited ability to create feeds, or the suspensions of accounts of those who created the feeds. Maybe we'll piss Universal Media (or whomever) off enough that they'll sue LJ. I like Get Fuzzy too, but is it really worth this much effort?

Well, barring all that, why are you advertising your continued creation of the offending feeds, especially where LJ admin/employees are known to look? Why not just create it and let the keywords and interests gather the people?

Right, right... that would be logical and cautious, can't have that... what was I thinking?

5:35PM - Shareware Music Machine

For fellow computer music hobbyists, the following feeds from Shareware Music Machine are now available;


Shareware Music Machine's homepage is at http://www.hitsquad.com/smm/



Here's a working Get Fuzzy feed for all you addicts. I don't know how long it'll last, but anyway.
