Today you can find so many sites on the internet that you can check each day for updates, but there is only a small amount of time for you to read each of them. With RSS you will be able to cut out half of that time.

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, and you shall be able to use it to publish contents as a means if news feed. Even though this is unknown to the tech community, this can help to shorten all the time it can take to read from many websites. It can achieve this just by stripping out any non-essential information that many websites post and will only leave undated news in formatted text.

Whenever a site is visited that will offer you the feed a small blue icon will appear on the right part of the address bar. When you click on it the site will allow a viewer to see all of the news items from that site. It is considered a good way for reading from these sites, but if you subscribe to the Real Simple Syndication feed it is an even better method for reading from the websites.

Gravatars, Pirates and Clickjacking

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

Interesting links:

  1. If you don’t know what a Gravatar is, find out at Keys Corner.  I haven’t activated them on this site (yet), but do use them on new sites that I install.
  2. Swedish courts are going to decide whether it is an infringement of Copyright to tell other people where files that are in themselves infringements can be downloaded.  Will this have a knock-on effect for people who include YouTube videos on their site, that are also potentially copyrighted and have been uploaded illegally?
  3. I new word in the world of IT vocabulary: Clickjacking.  Find out what that is at TheRegister.

Have you ever wondered which top-level domain another planet would have if it were to be collonised?  Or, for that matter, does the International Space Station have one?

Would all domain names get longer, to become eg.

To be honest, that probably not the World’s biggest problem at the moment, but if it was there would be one problem that would have to be solved first.  How do you get the internet protocols to work over large distances?

With large, I mean L A R G E – light years, for example.

At the moment, if you send an e-mail around the globe, say from the UK to Australia, then it is broken up into small chunks called “packets” and routed between various internet nodes to get there.  Not all of the message necessary goes the same way, the packets are put back together in the right order when they arrive.

Of course, this all happens very fast and you probably don’t even notice it.  But with larger distances you might still be waiting for one part to arrive.

This problem has, apparently, now been solved – as the BBC News website reported.  It all sounds very simple, storing the data until the next node can be contacted.  But it does present us with two rather important questions:

– how much data is a node likely to have to store?

– if that is the future, what do internet nodes do at the moment if they cannot relay the data?  Do they just throw it away?
