The Breeze has RSS

Brent Finnegan -- October 26th, 2006

Don’t know when this happened, but The Breeze now has RSS feeds for its news, sports, entertainment, and opinion sections.

I emailed their webmaster a few months ago, and he said he was working on it. Guess he wasn’t kidding.

Now WHSV needs RSS feeds. And WSVA needs a whole new website. If there was an award for worst news website in the Valley, WSVA would win.

In related web/tech news, Firefox 2.0 is out, ready for you to download, even if it still has a few bugs. I had some troubles getting it to work, but after re-installing it, I like it. Best new feature: as you type in online forums and blogs, it spell checks for you.

    The Breeze, the DNR and Rocktown Weekly all have usable RSS feeds, which is totally awesome. Perhaps they will soon have easy-to-use complete archives? :-)

    …and maybe persistent URLs?

    Yeah. Some of the links in earlier hburgnews stories (to DNR or TV3 stories) are already dead. It sucks.

    The only real archive that exists for DNR stories is at the Massanutten Regional Library… on microfilm.
