There's several ways to publish RSS feeds. But there's one scenario I'd like to utilize by use of QueryStrings (ex: "http://www.glacsy.com/rss/feed.ashx?id=324"). Not knowing how to do such a thing, this will be quite an adventure. Of course if anyone has a great example I can go by, it will be an unimaginable amount of help to me. But all in all, I love a challenge...

Take a look at the list of proposed features for .NET 3.5. Nice table that gives an overview of what's to come. Tighter integration of WF & WCF with specialized WF hosts for WCF (ServiceHost). Also, syndication support is part of the base class library. So, publishing through RSS or ATOM is far simpler than it already was. That's a technology that's ubiquitous. Faster execution & GC. Anonymous & name pipe base class support (I see easier WCF channel implementations). And of course Add-in ...

Ug I have just spend a few infuriating hours playing with Yahoo latest utility, Yahoo Pipes. Tim O’Reilly said this was a milestone in the History of the Internet. (Ug isn’t he the same bloke that coined the phrase ‘Web 2.0'? Ug, what does that mean?) In a nutshell Yahoo Pipes is a utility that lets you build your own custom searches, it allows you to aggregate search-engines searches and RSS into one stream of output. So for example, if I wanted to see all what had been posted about ‘Girl Geek ...

Are you registered in so many forums that you can't remember which one? I'm like that. I noticed that most have the same look/feel/architecture. Why not create a standard? An Xml schema for forums. I searched google and didn't find much. We could then have desktop applications that would mimic RSS readers ! Heck, current RSS readers could easily implement this new kind of feed ! What do you think? Did I stop my search too quickly and there's already a ForumXml schema somewhere? Would the RSS schema ...
Somebody from Sprint must have read my blog post about not being able to receive text messages from Where's Tim. Either that or somebody decided that we were not sending spam through our servers. Either way, I am now getting text messages people send me on Where's Tim. I also publish these messages in a GeoRSS enabled RSS feed. Since the feed does have GeoRSS, you can even view the last 100 messages on Where's Tim. Technorati tags: Where's Tim, GeoRSS, Sprint ...
Few days back, I was getting HTTP 404 error in my RSS Reader for some feeds. Some of them are very popular feeds and when I checked the feed XML content, I couldn't find any problem. After doing some step by step debugging I found an interesting thing - the path provided for the DTD in <!DCOTYPE... is no longer valid. When the XmlTextReader was trying to download the DTD from "http://my.netscape.com/pub... it got the exception "HTTP 404 error" and bubbled up to the top level. ...
The last year or so there have been a lot of pages being created specifically to be used as your homepage. I've tried a few here and there, and now I think I finally found my favorite. NetVibes , this one loads fast, has multiple page tabs, allows rss feeds, and has a nice rss reader. I also like to have gmail load up at the same time, that way I have immediate access to my e-mail too. The other pages that I liked and were alright, google personalized, and pageflakes. They both had their ups and ...
Well, its another new year (did I mention that?) I'm going to make a big attempt to update my blog more often than I did towards the end of last year, that was pitiful to be honest. So, what better way to start the new year than installing some free software to make your development/computing life that bit easier.... Here's my top 5 list of "Stuff I always install when I rebuild my machine": Notepad2. Its my fave notepad replacement, with all the usual syntax highlighting and cool features. Check ...
So the other day I was adding a “news page” to one of my projects and thought it was a great chance to play with consuming some other RSS feeds that had related information to what I was working on. So I started looking round and found the RSS Toolkit that had an RSS Data Source control that is perfect for consuming RSS feeds – the toolkit actually does much more, you should have a read on Dmitry’s blog (he wrote the toolkit and in on the ASP.net team) download the toolkit here. I have also used ...
Somewhere along the line, AZGroups removed the "Blog Roller" from their site. I liked it, because it was one go-to place to get my morning 'news' .. headlines from a lot of folks, similar to what you have at asp.net. I like Squeet and will continue to use it but there's just something about going to one central place. So my goal was to build a Blog Roll for my site. I ratted around and found a blog entry from Dmitryr, talking about the release of his RssToolkit on CodePlex, and it looked like just ...
Note: If you don't care about RSS in your sites, or seeing it just fine to handle it as any other XML format. You don't have to continue reading!However, if you are interested in open source projects. Watch out for this one!! I think long earlier I mentioned the RSS Toolkit made by Dimtry, a cool Microsoft ASP.NET team member to encapsulate all the XML work needed for aggregiating or authoring RSS feeds, giving you straight forward APIs that just make your life easier. I've tried the toolkit personally ...
Now that I have made the switch to Windows Vista full time I have had to re-think my RSS reader. I originally switched to RSS Bandit after being a long time FeedDemon user one day when FeedDemon pushed me over the edge with its activation. I work as a consultant and systems engineer and I love to beta test software and generally experiment. As such, I rebuild my laptop often. One to many times as far as FeedDemon was concerned. The first time it happened their support team was quick to clean it up. ...
This series of posts will combine into one complete article. My goal is to provide a solid starting point for users wanting to learn SubSonic. The easiest way to follow along is to either subscribe to this blog's RSS feed or this article's specific RSS feed. When the series of posts is finished, I will take all the posts and changes based on reader comments and combine them into one article, hopefully turning the effort into a combined work of the Geeks With Blogs community. The article will also ...

I've been giving Google Reader a spin and I'm finding it very easy to get used to reading my RSS feeds through it. They've done an excellent job with the UI, as usual.But then I needed to find an old blog entry from Oren Eini's blog (a book recommendation for a fantasy trilogy of all things) and I've discovered that Google Reader is missing something very important. Something that Google is almost synonymous with - a search box.What and odd surprise - there is no search feature (that I could find) ...
According to the RSS specification, the pubDate element (when the item was published) must be formatted like this : Mon, 28 May 1979 19:45:32 GMT I've posted an article with C# / VB.NET functions that will accept a DateTime object and return a string properly formatted to meet the pubDate specification. Technorati tags: RSS, pubDate, Code, .NET ...

I'm just "touching base" with my blog, which basically means if you convert the management speak crap to normal, that I have nothing in particular to say of interest to the world in general. What I will say is that I'm happily on Firefox 2 now. It seems to boot a lot faster in windows, and I like the subtle changes to the UI (improved tabs etc). I also think that the improved RSS support is pretty cool, those Live Bookmarks are damn useful! I'm just waiting for the next release of Ubuntu (6.10) to ...
[Warning: stream of consiousness] Next month I am going to be speaking to students at my alma mater, Baker University. There are a lot of things that I want to pass on to these young people, but I am not sure what to say. I have learned so very much since I graduated from university five years ago, and I have taken such a different path than most that I am afraid that what I want to convey won't be heard. I am not afraid that I won't be heard really, there will be a few awakened minds there that ...
Joab Jackson published an article in National Geographic that give a very basic introduction of GeoRSS and a couple examples of it's use. One of the examples was Where's Tim!! GeoRSS is a way to add geographic information to an RSS feed. Most generically, it is used to add a latitude / longitude point to an item. To add GeoRSS to your existing feed, add the namespace to your rss element like this: rss version="2.0" xmlns:georss="http://www.ge... xmlns:gml="http://www.openg... ...
Just got to mention Google Reader. This is the panacea of RSS readers that I've been looking for. I've previously used RSS Bandit which I thought was excellent, but even though you could do some synchronisation with it's files, it wasn't very portable. Google reader lets you upload your OPML file with your feeds to it, and it just does a generally excellent job of presenting them to you, and giving you a huge pile of keyboard shortcuts for working through them. I recommend that you all give it a ...
The Major Components of the ASP.NET 2.0 WebPart Framework Before diving into a sample WebPart-driven Web site, you must first understand the major reusable controls built into the .NET framework, which you will use to set up the site: WebPart: A WebPart is a reusable widget on a Web page. The user can choose to add a WebPart on his page, customize the WebPart per his needs, or even define communication between various WebParts. An ASP.NET 2.0 WebPart inherits from the System.Web.UI.WebControls.W... ...
I've previously blogged about inclue!, Attensa, Blogbot, and NewsGator. I've just stumbled upon two others, intraVnews ($), and RSS Popper (Free). Rss Popper even works with Outlook Express. intraVnews looks pretty powerful, and even supports posting to your blog from Outlook. RSS Popper seems somewhat basic (but really, how much flexibility do you need?) Anyway, worth a look. So far, I still prefer NewsGator, even over the built-in reader in Outlook 2007 (which still seems a little quirky). Eventually, ...
Well I was a bit surprised about this update especially since I didn't read about it on any of the blogs in my RSS Feedreader. Apparently Microsoft released yesterday (10th October 2006) a Security Update for System.Web.dll. Apparently there is a cross-site scripting vulnerability (categorized as moderate risk) that allows malicious users to compromise a computer running ASP.NET 2.0 and in doing so steal confidential data. Versions 1.0 and 1.1 of the .NET Framework are not affected. I guess that ...

Well I thought i would have a look at another new mobile offering tonight. And it looks like this time it's some software from the Irish company Nubiq which is a spin off company from Telecommunications Systems Software Group (TSSG). Last month they launched their first product Zindoo. ”Zinadoo is targeted at the average individual/organisation and doesn't require any programming skills. There are also many text based services around the site which users can customise to meet their needs and ...

I was looking at Sami's Where's Tim, and noticed he was at the Stockholm airport. Now, I don't know this for a fact, but I think he gets GPS data when he is actually on the plane. I've seen speeds upto 325 kph in his location RSS feed. That's over 200 mph. I'm going to keep my eye on him today. He was in Paris a couple weeks ago. It was right around the time that I added flickr support. It was so cool to see the satellite images of where he was and pictures that other people had taken of where he ...
I'm listening to Somewhere Out There by Our Lady Peace from the album Gravity I have really started to take advantage of the unread mail view\filter available in Outlook 2007 (and Outlook 2003) to get a better handle on mail coming in. This view will show all of my mail and RSS items that have the unread flag turned on. At first it took some getting used to as some of the RSS feeds that come with Outlook 2007 by default have a lot of postings (MSNBC News for example) as well as all of the MOM alert ...
On recommendation from Jeff, I'm trying out NewsGator. After 12 hours of use, this is what I think: Love the mobile app. The interface is pretty and smart. It marks my items read on the server side, so I don't read posts twice. It also allows me to "clip" a feed, so that I can look at it later from the computer. The app is a bit buggy though and often just exits. The NewsGator Online is ok. Nothing special except that I can see how many people subscribe to a particular feed. It's a little slow, but ...
So over the past couple of weeks I've been averaging about 5 hours of sleep a night...just busy with life I guess. So last night I crashed...was in bed by 8:30, slept right until 7ish this morning. But I still feel a bit tired...I think its because in my dream, I was pretty much living through a full day...yes, its another edition of What D'Arcy Dreamed Last Night There are three main pieces that I rememeber. The first piece involved my bike. Now, in reality I screwed up my new bike's handlebars ...
Geo-Names has released a utility that will scan an RSS feed for geographical content and spit out a GeoRSS feed. So you can grab the RSS feed for this blog and convert it to GeoRSS. Since Where's Tim understands GeoRSS, you can view the geographical data of my feed in relation to my current location here. You can also use the same utility to spit out KML and view the data in Google Earth ...
So its now official. If you haven't heard already, the guy with the Steve Ballmer shrine has bought an IMac. I really like it...well, until I tried to mix Windows with Apple. But before I get into that, here are my first few thoughts: The Good The mouse is awesome. Many people mistakenly think that its a one button mouse. Not true...sorta. It is a one button mouse, but its sensitive to how many fingers are on it. So if you lift the finger normally used to click on the left mosue button, it simulates ...
Chandu Thota, a Microsoft MapPoint developer has a service called FeedMap. A lot of people have FeedMap badges on their blog that shows the blogs around their location. The one thing missing from this service is GeoRSS tags, so I took a look at his API and created an RSS feed with GeoRSS extensions. My service is driven by query strings. You can pass in a place, or a lat and a lon, and also an optional count like this: http://timhibbard.com/where... or this ...
GeoRSS is an extension of RSS that allows for geographic information to be associated with a blog post, an event, a gps location, a photograph or any other information where geographic information would help better describe the item. Several websites are recognizing the value of GeoRSS and are adding these extensions to their feeds. Most recently, Wordpress is using GeoRSS to add maps to their posts. One of the things that Jeff and I talked about on our roadtrip is adding GeoRSS tags to ESS. ESS, ...
This is pretty cool. If you have some e-mail subscriptions that you'd rather view through RSS, NewsGator allows you to do that. Basically, you set up an e-mail address through NewsGator, and it publishes e-mail sent to that address as an RSS feed. Then you just change your subscription to use this new e-mail address. You can keep the feed private or make it public if you'd like to share it with others or make it available to an RSS reader outside of NewsGator. Gotta be a NewsGator subscriber to get ...
Today, John and I will interview Joe Olsen of the Heartland Developer Conference to kick off the PodcastStudio.net Road Trip. Joe has been organizing the HDC for a few years now and the event is awesome! Last year, John and I traveled to Iowa to attend and record from the event and it was my favorite event of last year. I am very excited about the HDC06 event in Nebraska and if you are considering attending, think fast, they are almost sold out. We will release this show via the PodcastStudio.net ...
Tomorrow morning at 11 am, Joseph, Dru, Tim, and I will be leaving Kansas City to head to the South Carolina Code Camp. Why is John not going? He is, but he is speaking in Birmingham for INETA and will be driving to Nashville to meet us around midnight. The trip is estimated at 16 hours and since we have 5 drivers, we are going all the way through. Tim and I have been working franticly to get Where's Tim and PodcastStudio.net ready for the road trip podcasts. Tim has been adding Podcasts and Photos ...
I was approached by a recruitment agent who was trying to recruit for BT... she was doing a good job but unfortunately for her BT let her down with their interview process and their pre interview web 2.0 questionnaire. The questions were poor to say the least and showed a real lack of understanding of Web 2.0. It does make me worry about their future performance as a company as they don't seem to be able to keep up with current web technologies. Here are the questions for you to look over, feel free ...
OK I will probably get lynched for even considering to write this particular post and I am not trying to cause controversy at all, however I have been looking around at some of the recent blog conversations that have been popping up on the various blog sites such as here and here. And we had a discussion at BarCamp London on the same subject. The thing is we can talk about why women aren't going to these events amongst the bloggers but to be honest I see the bloggers at the events, they actually ...

For some reason I am never sattisfied with an RSS Reader.

Correction I took a good liking to FeedDemon, but then who wants to pay for an RSS Reader.

Very frustrated with RSS Bandit, today I found this link.

Its a  big list of Rss Readers. Hopefully one should sattisfy my needs, hopefully.

I published yesterday a new version of my PhotoAlbum. This is the web application (running on ASP.NET 2,0) in which I experiment technologies which I find interesting in the moment. It's also my journal andmy pictures' gallery. During the holidays, I used this platform to post pictures and blog entries daily from Malaysia/Singapore, using two custom control I had developed for the occasion: RealSimpleBlog and Thumbnails. RealSimpleBlog is a control which is able to read XML files in a directory, ...
Today, Flickr released geocoding for photos on a Yahoo map. Hopefully, they will add GeoRSS tags to their RSS feeds so I can easily overlay pictures on Where's Tim (like I talked about earlier). As a side note. Jeff Croft and Matt Croydon have already geocoded their pictures, so Lawrence has way more geocoded pictures than any other city around. It shows that this little town has geek power :) Via TechCrunch ...
We released a new version of Where's Tim this morning that supports GeoRSS feeds.

I installed Windows Vista build 5536 on Friday and I have been blown away. I know everyone's experience, like mileage, varies. However - having installed all the previous builds this is the first one that has me thinking they may make their projected ship date. Here is a report after kicking the tires for four days: The speed is very nice. I have not yet had an instance of Vista just "taking a break" and spinning its wheels for a couple of minutes. Everything I have thrown at it has executed crisply ...
