Something Useful, Part 2: RSS
Now, GGC has had an RSS feed for quite a while. Since April or May or so, according to my calculations (with the contents of The Whuddup integrated in early November). And the original plan was that Pstonie would shortly thereafter write a logg or make a special page about RSS and its overwhelming coolness and whatnot. But as with many ideas, it got postponed and soon forgotten. So I'm doing it now, for reasons to be revealed in a belowly manner below. Although RSS is becoming increasingly popular, a whole lot of people still don't know about it. But instead of telling you, I'll just link to this article I found, which does the job quite nicely.

As for the reason why I'm writing about it today, it's something you may have already noticed in the sample screenshot provided in an abovely manner above. Many fans of Homestar Runner, including me, find it rather uncomfortable to keep ourselves up-to-date with the latest updates on the site by checking the site often to see if there's anything new. RSS would be the perfect solution, but The Brothers Chaps aren't providing us with one. A slight improvement was the H*R Updates page at the unofficial Homestar Runner Wiki. It's easier to check and the large amount of fans/editors monitoring the status on the official site will ensure that new updates are added to the page almost instantly. However, it is still a page that you will need to remember to check manually. What I suggested on their forum was that an RSS feed were made, based upon the wiki source. But the only PHP guy who was interested in it, was quite busy, so it didn't get very far.
That's just about how cool PHP coding is.
