i foresee a near future where every news website will look
this . a natural extension of rss for sure. and i'm
offering to help make it happen as it's not a big leap.
basically, i'm disgusted by the fact that i waste countless
hours cycling through my favorite spots on the web checking
for updates. i very much want to subscribe to a
know when there are updates.
on a similar note, i missed out on the big 'push' phase a
few years back. so when i hear people use it as a case
study for how the proposed next-big-thing probably ain't the
next-big-thing, i'm always curious as to what exactly
it (push) was all about. i assume it let people
'subscribe' to certain content. maybe it just wasn't
granular enough. i don't know... i'm just curious why
push was/is considered 'bad'.
oh yeah, in my last entry i said that rh was probably using
stunnel to achieve ssl-encrypted communications with
xmlrpc... umm, egg on my face (as usual). from reading
adrian's post to the rpc
article a few
weeks back, it sounds like they've either actually added
native support for the openssl libs probably to w3c-libwww
or used one of the ssl patches available for the w3c-libwww
tonight, i'm supposd to chat with an old high school friend
-- i'm pretty sure he's trying to get me set up in some type
of internet pyramid scheme. :) that sucks... but i figure
i better listen at least, our of courtesy. what are some
specific laws outlawing this kind of thing? i know they
exist. doesn't matter much. i'll just tell him that i'm
99.99999% sure what he's doing is both retarded and illegal.
almost forgot to mention... i had no choice but to certify
people tonight after seeing some of their truly awesome
work. sunir, thanks for wiki
work and i'm
pissing my pants in excitement over your jabber whiteboard
extension you mentioned today in your diary. sounds sweet
and i'd be willing to lend any help i can to you. just ask.
i'll email you to see if you are wanting any help.
anyhoo... emk's work is also much
appreciated as i've been using his xml-rpc libs in a lot
of my stuff lately (for both work and play). keep up
the good work! i also noticed ariya
jwz as much as i do. :) good
good night, john-boy
