5 Cool Things Today: Selections From My News Habit

cup_of_rssMy favorite news articles from the ridiculous 265+ RSS feeds in my newsreader.  One day in and I already took a “skip day”. I gave some thought to the WordPress plugin to pull in articles I tag in Google Reader automagically and it is certainly feasible.  I’m positive I can scrape the article titles and URLs easily enough, but I’m not sure if can also grab my annotations as well (the Share With Note” option in Google Reader).  If it can’t, it might just provide a list of titles and links without accompanying pithy comments. I’m not sure that will do at all.  Apologies to those that follow Facebook AND Livejournal syndications for the “double-ding” of posts. I occasionally consider letting Livejournal fall to the wayside, but for all its shortcomings, LJ probably has a lower amount of “noise” than Facebook, Twitter and so on.

    That’s almost exactly how I’ve been losing weight – figure out how many calories per day I can get away with, and stay under that. Surprise surprise, it works!

    I’ve been lusting after doing something like that with shipping containers for a while, but, alas, the time and money is not there.

    Grats on the weight loss. It seemed like a reasonable, rational approach to me too (as long as one doesn’t aim for starvation).

    Seattle is great for low-cost shipping containers being a port city and whatnot, but land costs on the other hand are kind of steep compared to back east.
