Am I the only one to find that the GWB Pheedo RSS link response time is horrible?  On any given day, I can click a GWB title in SharpReader and go on with other things while the program waits for http://www.pheedo.com/click.phdo?... to reply.  Frequently, I get errors and have to redo the request or just blow off reading GWB via RSS.  What gives?  Is this a downgrade?  Am I the object of an evil plot by Pheedo?
I'm very impressed with Windows Live Writer, and I'm sure you are tired of reading about it. After all, there is no shortage of blogs writing about this blog writer. Try to hold on for just one more :) I get emails from various groups within our office, be it the CEO, HR Manager, or IT Helpdesk. It may be a reminder about an upcoming maintenance outage, information about our benefit changes, or the state of the union. I've felt for a long time that it would be much better if some of these stuff was ...
So everyone is talking about Live Writer and how amazing it is blah blah blah. Yeah, we get it...Live Writer is awesome, I agree. But there's another tool that's very kewl as well that comes with Windows Live Toolbar (something that you can have installed when installing Live Writer). The app is called Onfolio, and its an add in that basically kicks the living bejeesus out of the native Feed support in IE 7.0. I actually was using Flock as my aggregator, but it was a pain to switch back and forth ...
Recently, Pageflakes released their new RSS Reader. It provides all the features of a good desktop RSS reader and with AJAX, it gives you the smoothness of regular desktop reader. The good thing of a web application is that you don't have to install it in your PC and you can use it from anywhere. The reader has two view modes: Outlook View & Newspaper View. In both view mode, you can resize the panes just like any desktop application. You can also use hotkeys for navigation. At the bottom, there ...
Sprint SMS sucked this past weekend, but as PCSIntel reports, there is a good reason. Sprint has been working on a new system that will allow you to view sent and received SMS as well as compose messages directly from your My PCS web page. It would be really cool if they syndicated my messages in RSS so I could plug them into my Google Desktop and search against them ...

In the continued interest of those working with POX (Plain Old XML over Http), here’s an article in the Windows SDK “Beta” documentation on how to read RSS via WCF, with code. Beware that the link may change as the SDK get’s to RTM, but if you search the SDK documentation for the text “RSS WCF POX” you should come up with the link/code. Consuming RSS From a WCF service using POX encoding and a WPF Client ...

Walter VonKoch is on MSDN">MSDN TV talking about RSS in IE7 and the RSS Platform. If you are interested in how IE7 displays RSS, and want a very basic introduction to RSS in IE7, and Microsoft's Simple List Extensions, you should watch this video. It is about 15 minutes, with 12 minutes of it being actual, kind of interesting demo. For example, IE7 has that cute little RSS icon in the task bar, that lights up when you visit a website that has an RSS feed. But how does the website know you have a ...
Starting from the static page, Web 1.0 has been turned to dynamic contents (like Google, yahoo etc), where users can interact with web pages, by providing instructions and contents through graphical interfaces. In short web 1.0 dealt with human-machine communication through web, accessible through wide range of operating system platforms, which was been possible by using http and html. Besides human to machine communication, the concept of web 2.0 concentrates on the following issues, that I have ...
The London Girl Geek Dinner short film has just been released. Here is an exclusive first look at it prior to it going on FourDocs. It was filmed about a month ago by Angela Saini of ITN who was just fantastic at both directing the video and setting everything up. I hope you enjoy the video and feel free to let anyone else know about it! I hope to see other short video's and films from the girls over at BlogHer after the conference. :) The next London Girl Geek Dinner is to be announced at a later ...
Another Request for the Microsoft RSS Team:I have been digging the improved RSS feed reading within the IE 7 beta 3. It is a big improvement and really adds to the usability of the feature(s). However, one thing I would love to see is synchronization of the feed read\unread states between IE 7 and Outlook 2007. I love how it syncs the subscription list, but I hate having to manage the “read state” of my posts between the two applications. Especially since I heavily depend on the Outlook ...
I want an RSS feed with MP3s of my VoiceMail messages. I want this because i am a geek and because your voice mail software sucks! Sucky Things about Cingular Voice Mail Why do i have to wait till the end of the damn message to delete it? I have friends that leave endearing but long as hell messages that need to be deleted now not in 5 minutes when they finish singing me songs on the radio. And no, fast forward is not a sufficient solution. When i leave a message on a cingular phone why can't i just ...
I found a workaround for the AVG Antivirus issue, so I finally did it... and wow this Glass thing looks good. A few things of note. 1. Moving files is a major pain in the ass. I had backed up the “My Pictures” folder to my E: drive prior to the install and when it came time to move them all back into my new “My Pictures” folder, not only did it take FOR-EV-ERRRRR but It kept aborting the transfer over and over. I would select a few folders, Cut, Paste and it would transfer ...
I spent yesterday's evening working on the other project occupying me in the moment, which will link QuickNews to AvantGo (two Palm OS programs which one can use to read RSS feeds). How to link them? Well, QuickNews is very good because it's fast, efficient and to the point. However, it doesn't render HTML, it cannot follow links, so sometimes it's just too short. AvantGo, on the other hand, is a HTML compliant reader, can follow links, can be used to browser online or offline (you have to synchronize ...
A new video has been published on the aspalliance website. In this video I demonstrated that how you can use the TextBoxWaterMark Control which is part of the ATLAS Control Toolkit.

Nice job this weekend. I moved forward a lot, implemented major features, tested most of them pretty extensively, thought about the future, and learned new things. So far, the features implemented are: Date, Title, Text, Frame, List. Features not implemented yet are: Images, Thumbnails. That should follow soon. Another important feature implemented: Each entry has an attribute "archive-older". If this attribute is set to "true", no older entries will be displayed after the current one. However, if ...
Vista, you sure are hard to love. I am trying my best, to love you unconditionally - I know you are a beta baby - but you make it very difficult. I have loaded Beta 2 a couple of times already - but when the going got tough (which was usually pretty early on) I quickly bailed and re-installed XP SP2. This time, in my TechEd 2006, drinking the Kool Aide, hangover stupor, I decided to install it again and try my best to live through the tough times. Here is where I am at: Office 2007 Beta 2 works amazingly ...
A while ago I posted this post on my blog: Reading RSS 2.0 feeds using the .NET XmlSerializer class Since that post, our CodeXS code-generator tool has been updated. With the latest update of the tool due out this week, the code-generator correctly generates the de-/-serialization code to read and write RSS 2.0 feeds. It is now fairly simple to also create RSS feeds, as feed item objects can be easily created and added to the items collection, instead of trying to manipulate arrays. A simple example ...
Like Lance talked about yesterday, I added GeoRSS tags to my Where's Tim Location feed. Essentially, all I needed to do was reference the GeoRSS namespaces: xmlns:georss="http://www.ge... xmlns:gml="http://www.openg... and add the georss:point tag By adding that one little tag, I was then able to drop that RSS feed on top of mapufacture and get this. And Lance was able to mashup the RSS feed using RSSBus with a Yahoo local search and find the closest pizza place to me, and also ...
For those of you who haven't seen the FolderShare for TechEd that Jeffrey Palermo created, I have started an RSS Feed for those photos. It was pretty easy to do, I just have a folder that syncs with FolderShare and then build the RSS feed off of those. Check it out. http://techedphotos.geekswi... ...
June 8th, 2006. InfoQ.com Enterprise Software Development Community has launched today, having previously been live in testing mode since May 17th.

InfoQ is the only community in the world serving these communities in one place and is also a technological example of what a modern online ...
There are quite a few places which I refer to everyday to pick up some quick tips. I'll begin adding them to the link list here. Between these sources, a massive amount of data comes my way. The best tool which I've found to deal with it all is through RSS. Using this technology you can get timely updates on what and who is happening. If I find a good source of info and they have an RSS feed, I add it to my aggregator. Easy to quickly go through feed entries and whittle it down to only what interests ...

Each video is few minutes long which will guide you step by step to complete a specific task. Subscribe to the RSS Feeds right now!!!

Well as I've come to expect after a Code Camp I am recharged and psyched about programming again. Like NJ Code Camp I, I met a lot of great people and made some new friends. I have to say that I'm a bit shocked that there was more controversy in my “Down with Datasets!” session than my session on “Living in an Out-Sourced World”. I appreciate the honest and open dialog in both sessions. I received some great challenges to my stance on using custom objects over datasets. I ...
I was recently contacted by Allan Hoffman (the "tech jobs expert" for Monster.com) about some quick thoughts and tips I had on how to have a successful technical blog (which alone is a shock to me as I wouldn't even start to think of my blog as "successful", but to each his own I suppose :)). I thought I would reprint my response here (with permission, of course). I hope you enjoy :). Obviously, these are just my opinions so you can take them with a grain of salt if you wish (at your own peril, I ...
Few days back someone made a comment “what the hell you know about VISTA” .. I didn't respond much ..but smiled... Slowly I tried to navigate and gather information about Vista if not knowledge about it.... somehow I felt Comfortable enough to write some lines about it... Here I go ... SIDE TRACK :- Few days back we had three day Session on VISTA for dev MVPS and Vinod provided some nice presentations and demos...although I being long away from DEV but still enoyed it asDI was able to ...

Microsoft has, with very little fan-fare, launched another site specifically aimed at Architects called www.skyscrapr.net. The differences being it is aimed specifically at Solution, Infrastructure, Strategic & Industry Architects which to be fair aren't areas that Microsoft has covered much before. The site has afew articles, blogs and links to podcasts with a novel new feature called the 'Archipedia' is to provide plain english definitions of architectural topics such as for example 'What is ...
I was tasked to build an rss reader the other day and created a Datalist to display the output. I wanted to display page numbers but then realised that the datalist doesn't have any built in functionality for paging (like the DataGrid and GridView). I was faced with the prospect of rolling my own until I realised that most of the work had already been done for me with the PagedDataSource class! This neat class gives me all of the same functionality as native paging, and was easy to setup. It includes ...
inclue! is another RSS Reader for Outlook. I’ve previously blogged about Attensa, Blogbot, and NewsGator. I haven’t tried inclue!, but it looks like it might be pretty good. Like Blogbot (and unlike Attensa and NewsGator), it’s free ...
Well, according to the Microsoft Rep we are offically able to talk more about SharePoint 2007. So I guess the best way for me to relate what I am finding with the program that I am participating in would be to go through the general lessons that we are doing. Hands On Lab 1: This is pretty much a whats new in the SharePoint 2007. SharePoint 2007 is drastically changed from teh blocky old view that was 2003. It is cleaner and seems to be way more organized. Navigation has been cleaned up a lot since ...
I read this post from Mitch which referred to a post from Darren (another one <g>) about how he is now using Google Reader to read his RSS feeds. I love the idea of reading feeds online, it's great to be able to move from work to home to a client site and get a consistent view of all your feeds. I did try Google Reader briefly, but quickly went back to Bloglines (www.bloglines.com). I found that while Google Reader had a really slick, ajax style interface, the thing that ruined it for me was ...
The last month was pretty rich in terms of the free downloads I found available online, so, thought I needed to list some of those, and clearly got busy/late for that! however, I thought I'll also drop the list in case someone missed any. Form Scott Guthrie (AKA: ASP.NET Hero)'s Blog: Source Code for the Built-in ASP.NET 2.0 Providers! This really a BIG hit. The source code for the whole set of ASP.NET 2.0 providers downloadable for free, and also, Scoots points to 130+ pages of awasome pages walking ...
I cannot count the number of times I have searched through HTML code and turned on table borders to begin analyzing a web page. yuk! Check out this cool tool (IE Developer Tool Bar) for analyzing a Web page - any Web page you display in your IE browser. With a mouse click you can see table borders, css classes and more. It's also helpful with WSS customization (branding). Overview The Internet Explorer Developer Tool bar provides several features for exploring and understanding Web pages. These features ...
Yahoo Map Image released new maps the other day. We use them on Where's Tim when we need a static map image. Check out the new maps on the location RSS feed and Where's Tim Mobile. [Where's Tim] [EnGraph] ...
Yesterday, I knew that Microsoft has finally shiiped the SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 1 as a final release, not just CTP. I found some interesting information about it in the related knowledge base article (KB913090), and this Info World article. That's quite encouraging in fact. If you're sort of involved in this, you must have heard of the new amazing features of Microsoft SQL Server 2005. Not only SQL CLR and new ranking functions, the new XML and MAX data types (like NVARCHAR(MAX)), integration ...
Awesome Tool! Highly recommend it ... http://rsspopper.blogspot.com/2004/10/home.html - this one allows adding RSS blog feeds to outlook so that you don't need an external aggregator... sweet!!
This has been a good week for healthcare in the media. First, Yahoo! launched Expert Blogs on Yahoo! Health, and now this: MINNEAPOLIS - Newspaper and magazine health coverage will be reviewed online at a new Web site beginning Monday. Access to the site and its findings, http://www.HealthNewsReview... is free and open to consumers. It was created by University of Minnesota journalism professor Gary Schwitzer, who fashioned the site after similar efforts in Australia and Canada. "For consumers, ...
Well I just received some info that the Beta version of Academic search for Windows Live is now available, and I thought it would be useful to any students, lecturers or academics to know about. Google have their verison and now Microsoft have theirs too! It's another useful source of information but it's only in beta version. It's worth anyone interested in it having a look and giving feedback on it as feedback shapes the way these softwares work. The Windows Live Academic Search beta is designed ...
Register at: http://www.tspug.com/ Tonight, CorasWorks will be showing off some great components for SharePoint. If you've used out-of-box SharePoint at all, you probably found some gaps in what it's capable of. CorasWorks fills in those gaps to help you construct some great, useful, navigable apps. I'll also be describing some RSS tricks I've recently used for SharePoint development, and we'll have the usual fireside chat to begin, including a review of the recent SharePoint 2003 Advanced Concepts ...
From Download Squad Lazybase is a web-based database app that fits the "simplest thing that could possibly work" paradigm. It's not flashy (or even AJAXy), but it's clean, easy to use, and it just works. It's a registrationless service, so to create a new database you just give it a name and enter your e-mail address. When you create a database you're given two URLs, one that lets people edit the database and another that's just for viewing. Though simple, Lazybase has a few nice advanced features ...

I find myself changing RSS feed readers regularly.  Not a problem except when you save off items for later. 

Rather than bother everyone that reads GeeksWithBlogs with all the snippets I find interesting, I am going to start posting more items but not to the main feed.  Mostly this is for my own long term access.  But, if you are interested you should be able to see all the little useless things I find interesting on the web by subscribing directly to my blog.

Well Mobile Monday has been and gone... I did sit on the panel and we did discuss Mobile Web 2.0. In the second part of this Mobile Web 2.0 discussion I'm going to just make a few points that I think got lost in the discussions on the panel and give a bit of reasoning behind them. As I said before I believe in mobi-web 2.0 which is new innovative mobile solutions that break through the boundaries of the mobile issues such as multiple operating systems, multiple devices, languages etc. I also have ...
Just been looking through my rss feeds and I HAD to let everyone know about Miki! The new mobile wiki solution from SocialText. Why... because I was only talking to some people on Monday evening about mobile wiki's not yet really being here. I think that is one step closer to web 2.0 hitting the mobile! What do you say Mobile Monday people! Ross and I chatted quite a bit last time he was in London at wiki wednesday about this and it looks like he finally managed to get a workable solution so I have ...
After reading how FrontRow is a crap I ended up playing with Windows XP Media Center Edition only to learn that is crappy too. Namely, per official Microsoft Extender FAQ the whole MediaCenter - Extender architecture is as good as its extenders and extenders are closed source. So I do get decent experience on a PC, but in the living room Xbox extender is pretty much useless for anything but playing mp3. The reason for that is that Microsoft do not support any codecs but Microsoft's and there is no ...
NewsGator has released a new version of their product that allows you to read RSS from within Outlook. Called NewsGator InBox, Nick made an announcement in his blog. I am curious to see how this product fares and evolves now that Outlook 2007 will natively support RSS feeds. Given that so far the implementation has been pretty bare bones, I have a feeling there will still be plenty of room for products like this. It is interesting to see that these types of services and applications live for a short ...
