( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Twitching Monk Software(tm) is proud to announce the addition of RSS feeds to the stats pages.

Tired of hitting reload on the site to see if your XP has changed? Don't run Windows(tm) so you can't use XPFixation? Can't use the VXML dialup service, because some lazy SOB programmer hasn't maintained it?

Well, problem solved! Crafted from only the finest American 1's and 0's, using the most powerful editor known to mankind (vi), and written in the languages of languages (ForthPerl), the RSS feeds are sure to satisfy XP whores, stats junkies, and collectors of useless information everywhere.<myhomenode #>

This feed generates an item for every XP change detected. This is pulled from the stats database, which updates once an hour. If no 'node' argument is provided, you'll be defaulted to watching vroom's XP change (only slightly less exciting than watching paint dry, crack, and peel, but more interesting than CSPAN). XP changes go back up to 7 days.

This feed displays each new node as an item, and includes the node title, author, creation date and node type. All node types are included (so you can spot those catchy new usernames). Only nodes created in the last 6 hours are pulled.

This feed displays an item for the daily $NORM value. $NORMs values go back up to 30 days.

Please hit the feeds as infrequently as you need to, and no more than once an hour. The databases are updated hourly, and hitting any more often will only anger the server maids, who may sweep you under the carpet.

The feeds have been tested with Thunderbird 1.5, Opera, and Straw 0.25.1. Other readers should work fine, but if not, please let me know.

Suggestions, questions, and operational deficiencies may be directed to Complaints may be directed to /dev/null.

    [1nickt]: (Disicpulus The new best choice is maybe "First People"
    [karlgoethebier]: Discipulus: This is called "Volksverhetzung" in German which means
    [karlgoethebier]: incitement of the people and it is prohibited by law
    [1nickt]: The best sign I have sign in a protest march was carried by a kid of about 10 years "If you build a wall my generation will tear it down."
    [1nickt]: ... sign I have seen ...
    [1nickt]: Now that one made me hopeful! First time not angry in a long time when I saw that kid.
    [Discipulus]: i propend for removing: why? because we are so few that we must find i minimal common divisor, this is certainly Perl not our (anyway private) thougths. And i say this still wondering because i love a lot freedom of expression. And i say this not for roho
    [1nickt]: Discipulus that was the point of my story of taking the sticker off my truck. I know there are lots of people in the world who if I knw their private beliefs I might want to argue with them. And they with me. But life cannot all be arguments!
    [1nickt]: This is less than perfect ... but demanding perfection (from people or from life) is a sure way to unhappiness.
    [Discipulus]: and anyway we have CB where every (democratic) opinion can be expressed
