BBC Backstage is an interesting little bit of the BBC site. They are encouraging people to make use of the rss feeds on the site and do something useful with them.
So far this has produced:
All very prototypy, but very impressive thus far.
Google Home Page is clearly their latest enterprise to run the world. A limited selection of RSS feeds, and
one of your gmail for starters. I suspect you will be able to configure the rss feeds later on. I would rather they did something mimicking Gmail for RSS feeds myself, but I think that sort of thing will come together over time. I’ll certainly have it set as my homepage for a little while, see what they start doing with it over the next few weeks.
This is just a quick list of the essential Firefox Extensions:
Will add to this later, hopefully.
Well not mine, but Nintendo’s. I have achieved nothing approaching such this past weekend, took it incredibly easy. Which was much needed.
Anyways, to business. Details starting to emerge about the revolution, it is the size of 3 dvd cases stuck together, it has wireless controllers and wireless broadband connections, and it is called revolution. That is it. It is not THIS unfortunately, which is a fake, but an awesome fake that should exist, in a fair and just world.
Have now downloaded Phantasy Star Online Blue Burst for the PC, and now they have the servers set up, will hopefully be playing that tonight. Suspect it will mainly be nothing new until the actual launch, where they will bring out a whole round of new content, but will have a bash and start building up a character I reckons. Has a new team function, which is essentially Clans for PSO, will be looking forwards to trying that out
Have been reading up on XML etc today. Bit perplexed actually, understand the basics of it, what I don’t get is how I am required to use it. Need to have a good hard think about that today, see if I can get it to come together in my head.
It would be wonderful if it was the weekend today. Round about now would be ideal.
And finally, firefox 1.0.4 is now out, definitely worth updating, get the latest security fixes you need to have.
