Link Fest

link Here is a round up of a lot of pages I have tagged in delicious or just decided to link to because of their content but don't have time to review in depth.

Mark from Geeks are Sexy has written a very good article on writing for the web using RSS and other tools to gather information and resources. A must read for any serious blogger.

Miguel from Tip of the Day has written a long explanation of the need to Make and Maintain a Master Information Document. Use this tool to hold all passwords, settings and other vital information that your executors and survivors will need when you die.

Lots of Links

Following a is a list of cool stuff I didn't have time to write individual posts about.

Random Web stuff

MyOpenID - If you don't know what OpenID is, think of it this way, one sign in authentication process for every website that supports it. Drupal 6 has it, Yahoo has it, lots of places have it - learn more about OpenID and get your own.

Tagurself - enter a feed link or a url and it generates a tag cloud for you.

TeamViewer - excellent remote desktop sharing software - and its free!

Microsoft SharedView - remote connection - sharing applications - great for training people how to do things remotely.

How to Use Google Reader with Firefox for RSS feeds


Following is the edited text from a conversation with my sister helping her set up RSS feeds for our family blogs. Maybe it will help you.


Jethro the santa (hes not real!) claus says (1:32 AM):

do u have a Gmail account?

u have blogger so I guess you do actually

go to

login there

in Firefox when you go to a website with an rss feed you can click on it and it will give you the option to add to Google reader automatically

u may need to set it up in the options in Firefox

go to tools and options

then feeds

choose the default application for reader

I use Google reader

yahoo is just as good

means they can be read anywhere - not tied to a computer

just need to login
