Feedreaders

Some raw stats on willy:

50% of all the hits are real pages:

[root@tug ~]# tail -100000 /var/log/httpd/access_log | grep -iv gif | grep -iv png | grep -iv favicon | wc -l
50451

Of all the hits on this weblog, 5% is from RSS feed readers.

[root@tug ~]# tail -100000 /var/log/httpd/access_log | grep "/feed" | wc -l
5115

Only 278 RSS hubs (or normal end point clients) cause these RSS hits.

[root@tug ~]# tail -100000 /var/log/httpd/access_log | grep "/feed" | awk {'print $1'} | sort | uniq | wc -l
278

More than two percent of all hits (posts) on Willy are from spammers (who get a 412 error message back from Drupal)

[root@tug ~]# tail -100000 /var/log/httpd/access_log | grep 412 | wc -l
2494

Nine percent of all hits (17% of all traffic) comes from google or is googlebot

[root@tug ~]# tail -100000 /var/log/httpd/access_log | grep -i "www.google." | wc -l
8512

Live Clipboard - "sleur" and "pleur" for the web...

Ray Ozzie of msft is presenting on Etech06 an simple but clever method of enabling cutting and pasting structured data from one (web)application to the next using microformats and some javascript and css

This what I need..it is the next step to living on the webtwodotoh?

Imagine being able to:

  • copy and paste contact info from a site to your gmail contacts
  • copy and paste feeds from a site to bloglines..(which I do a lot) (btw check out this ghost of rss-future(hell?)
  • copy and paste an URL to del.icio.us without the bookmarklet installed
  • copy and paste an picture from flickr to a blog/tag42 post..damn..that would be sweet

Lets embrace and extend this one....with Drupal leading the way?

btw..is some coolness returning to redmond...

GeoRSS

GeoRSS, Map annotations are specified in the RSS XML format. The official site for GeoRSS is... georss... It is an RSS (XML) file for locations with a simple syntax:

<gml:Point>
   <gml:pos>45.256 -71.92</gml:pos>
</gml:Point>
Google Maps (Earth) isnt however supporting this format but this will help you out. Mikew?

Mastering AJAX (over at IBM)

Mastering Ajax, Part 2: Make asynchronous requests with JavaScript and Ajax

In this article, you'll begin with the most fundamental and basic of all Ajax-related objects and programming approaches: The XMLHttpRequest object. This object is really the only common thread across all Ajax applications and -- as you might expect -- you will want to understand it thoroughly to take your programming to the limits of what's possible. In fact, you'll find out that sometimes, to use XMLHttpRequest properly, you explicitly won't use XMLHttpRequest. What in the world is that all about?
