The feature also updates the "New Posts" list, which can skew the results of that search. I have disabled the feature until I can figure out how to get around the "New Posts" problem.
Will have an update soon.
There wasn't much feedback on the news feed forum, so instead of giving up hope, I decided to give it a try. With suggestions from shebang, the new forum includes the following links:
Three stories from each source are downloaded three times a day. 60 stories a day shouldn't be too overwhelming.
- Lxer - Linux News from a wide variety of sources
- Tectonic – Southern Hemisphere Technology News
- Slashdot – Technology News
- New Scientist – Science News
- Gizmodo – Gadget News
- Digg – Techology News
- Tech Crunch – Web Company Gossip
I chose a cross section of technology news sources to make it livelier. I also chose sources that were updated daily to prevent old posts being repeatedly downloaded.
Let me know what you think. If I get complaints from the feed sources, I may be required to alter the assortment.
My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive.
I followed Compunuts' suggestion and have done a test installation of the Planet RSS aggregator which can be seen at http://blogs.openfree.org.
It currently updates every six hours and currently pulls only from the forums. If you want to add your blog to the feed, please follow the links on the page.
It currently is set to save 7 days worth of feeds.
Let me know what you think.
Although I don't really think we need to feed it from the forum, I mean why redundancy?
It would be nice to pull from other interesting web blogs (although I don't have any specific link to give you ATM) or do it as news feeds. It would be interesting to do forum, news feeds and blog feeds. Careful with those feeds though it can be overwhelming.
Will post more thoughts later. Gotta catch some sleep since it's already 1:30 and I need to be at work by 7 AM. Darn !!!
LinuxVillage - The truely community run Linux/Floss forum !
No IT BS !!
I have added the following blogs to blogs.openfree.org:
I must admit I feel a bit stupid. I did a search for "blogs" on the forum and found this thread which makes the very same suggestion.
- Kernel Killer
Anyway, if you want your blog added, just send me a note.
