Zilla and the Comics Junkies

Wednesday, May 24, 2006


This post is primarily intended for all you RSS readers/aggregators out there:

I've recently discovered a very (very) cool little site that will help you put together a near perfect RSS feed for just about any source (w/ a little grunt work).  Check out feed43.com

Despite how friendly the process looks in the image below, it's a little technically intensive the first time you create a custom feed (you manually tell feed43 how to find feed items, links, and descriptions in the source code of the site you are creating the feed for) but after you've done it once, it makes sense and gets a lot easier (i breezed through my second one). 

In the end though it's this flexible technical process that makes feed43 so damn nice.

I've created a Newsarama.com RSS feed using feed43 for anyone who's interested (it's always bugged me that Newsarama didn't have one).  Pretty nifty.

PS - I forgot to mention how well the feed43.com site is put together. simple and efficient. good luck.

I'm recently back reading after a 15 year comics hiatus.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
