Another RSS Round-up.

  • RSS Feed Jackpot - The FeedRoom
    “I was checking out a link that someone sent me earlier, and stumbled upon this jackpot of RSS feeds. Insane! They've even got one set up for Robert Blake, for chrissake. I'm telling ya – if you don't have a RSS file, I ain't likely to return to your site. M'kay?” [C:PIRILLO.EXE]
  • Last week, Morbus Iff announced that SourceForge is providing RSS feeds for their projects, so you can easily keep track of news for and changes to any of their software projects (such as Mailman!).
  • Old Data Update Tool Gains New Converts
    “One researcher has written an RSS application that sends out server status updates. That could allow an information systems department to keep users updated when there are server problems, so that people aren't constantly calling up to report network problems.

    'RSS is proving to be a nice, robust and easily used tool for moving data…not just news headlines, but everything–from orders and inventory to whether or not the servers are up,' said Ben Hammersley, a journalist who has written a soon-to-be-published book on RSS. 'Thanks to the tools the RSS development community has made these past few years, it has a great future in the enterprise.' ” [News.com]
