Twitter RSS feeds URLs & ID location

Twitter did it again 🙁

Implementing a platform-restricting policy, they first killed Friendfeed’s (maybe other aggregators’ as well) ability to post to Twitter. They also recently killed FriendFeed’s (maybe other aggregators’ as well) ability to receive input from Twitter accounts. And, somewhere down the line, they hid the link to an account’s and its lists’ RSS […]

WordPress: External RSS Feeds Optimization with KB Advanced RSS

Apart from its own Ice Tea tech blog, Dipot.com also displays two external feeds relating to Optimization and Standards. I needed to optimize the post titles of these two feeds by getting rid of their long suffixes, both for better looks and for more content within the same space.

The feeds were served by the standard […]

PCs and the Internet: Addiction Magnets or just Tools?

The traditional Media (at least in Greece, where I live) don’t treat computing nor the Internet right. I don’t know if  it’s because of ignorance or because they feel threatened by it. However, I do get the impression that, most of the time, when radio, TV or the press mention PCs and/or the Internet it’s […]

These are a few optimization suggestions to raise the experience from “great” to “near perfect” (as new requests will probably always exist):

Discussions is a great strength […]

Optimize Firefox with 9+1 Must Have Add-ons

During my early days as an IT support person (well before USB flash drives, external hard disks and recordable CDs), I picked up the habit to not be dependent on anything not included in Windows (v. 3.0, at the time) if I could help it. So I got used to working on the setups my […]

7 Favorite, Value Adding FriendFeed Applications

I like FriendFeed much better than Twitter; that’s no secret. In a conversation with @Trianta earlier today, it seems the only FriendFeed desktop clients out there are the Adobe Air-based Twhirl and feedalizr. They both leave a lot to be desired. There is also the announcement of  .NET-based FriendFeed Client. Web-based FriendFeed applications are also […]
