Background Rss is a wonderful system to get headlines of online news from many independent sources and browse them as quickly as possible, without subscribing to any website, giving away personal information and/or depending on any third-party website to aggregate everything for you. In order to save time and to not depend on any Rss reader, I have written two simple scripts. One downloads all the RSS feeds I want to read and saves them in a format suitable for further processing.
- Wordpress is a great publishing system, but managing it manually can be a very time consuming process. This is especially true when you want to upload lots of posts, or if you would like to write content in your preferred, full-blown text editor and then have it “magically” appear online. Wordpress takes care of these needsallowing remote posting via email or the WordPress XML-RPC interface (if you enable the WordPress, Movable Type, MetaWeblog and Blogger XML-RPC checkbox in goinig to Settings > Writing > Remote Publishing).
