Coming soon: RSS 1.0 feeds for the Fox community!

Worked out a proof-of-concept design and got them past the Feed Validator this evening for an RSS 1.0 feed for the FoxForum Wiki and the new sites to complement the 2.0 feeds I already have running at An intermediate (read: kludge) design will get the feeds going, so I can get more Fox content into the blogosphere’s search engines. A new, sleeker, 2.0 design is my goal for unveiling at the Great Lakes Great Database Conference. It’s in the napkin-drawing stage now, but I’ve got some cool ideas for a multi-object collaborative design. More on that later. I’ll try to get beta 1.0 feeds up and running this week.

You can’t attack what you can’t find…

I wondered last week if Microsoft could deflect a DDOS attack. They couldn’t deflect it, but they could sidestep it — by moving the target. “Blaster worm attack a bust. A scheduled denial of service attack against Microsoft’s main software update Web site did not materialize Saturday, as computers infected with the W32.Blaster worm failed to find their target.” from InfoWorld: Top News
