Alex Feldstein syndicates his Visual FoxPro Tips and Tricks pages

[Alex Feldstein]
blogs: “My VFP Tips & Tricks have an RSS feed. My Visual FoxPro
Tips & Tricks pages which I have been maintaining for years, now
have an RSS feed…I publish them in English and Spanish. You can find
both feeds at the following links:[Spanish] [English]Enjoy!”

Very cool! I notice that Alex is also generating the list in ListGarden
as well. I’ve been very pleased with it, as well. I’ve got it installed
in three places: locally on a Windows workstation, in server mode on a
Linux intranet server and on my OS X iMac. All work well. Imagine that!
Cross-platform, compatible, standards-compliant Open Source. Remarkable.

Where can you ping that your weblog is updated?

One of the problems with the blogosphere, like the web in general, is
that a passing reference may fly by only once, and if you don’t grab it
then, it may be disappear forever. I’ve been searching for a reference
“someone” made to a website “someone” mentioned that would let you
submit a URL for your XML feed and it would, in turn, ping the major
news aggregators that there was something to read at your site. Google
turns up a disturbing number of *marketing* web sites that explain how
to juice the RSS search engines with your press releases {*shudder*},
but I’d like to think I’m actually posting news. I suppose they
probably do, too. So, anyone else catch that reference and hold onto it
better than I did?

Reminds me of one of the hundreds of incredible quotes from “Ocean’s Eleven” Laura and I saw last night:
Reuben: Look, we all go way back and uh, I owe you from the thing with the guy in the place and I’ll never forget it.
Danny: That was our pleasure.
Rusty: I’d never been to Belize.
