Hoodwink.d RSS Feeds #

by why in inspect

Rather than subscribing to bloggers, here’s an option to subscribe to commenters. For example, if you want to follow everything sporkmonger says here, I’d give you a feed for the search: site:redhanded.hobix.com who:sporkmonger. And, if you want every thing Robby posts anywhere: who:robbyrussell. Or you can watch for search terms and follow discussion in that fashion.

This only works on winks (Comments 2.0) which are actually just a very simple upgrade involving very little hand-editing of your sensitive PC setup files. Now, why wouldn’t you want your comments to have they stature they deserve?

Don’t tell them that I wink. I am not a winker. It’s not something that I am proud of. I am not a winker. I never wink’d. Take me off of your mailing list. Thanks.

Oh, hey, I didn’t know there was a real Robby Russell: hi! I use that name for test accounts. :blush: I’ll go back to using Philarp Tremaine again, sorry guy…

dammit, why.

Okay, this was bound to happen. I’ve been using Philarp Tremaine as a test login since the 70s, so I shoulda figured that some couple must have seen one of my accounts somewhere, latched on to it, I can’t believe this, and really taken a liking to the sound of it, I hate to think this is really happening, and to me of all people, they named their son after it, this is a true outrage, in the original sense of the word. Looks like I’ve got to backpedal and use Generic Airtrafficcontroller again, this sucks!!

I can’t see hoodwinks on redhanded anymore with Firefox 1.5 Beta/Greasemonkey. Other sites still work. And the main page still dutifully lets me know there are 3 hoodwinks on this page so far, but…

why: Take joy in your influence. I know one day if I meet a young man named Zomnulafram Teggitz (because his parents read this post), I will be able to die content, having left a lasting mark upon the world.

Well, at least until Zomnulafram dies too. Then I suppose I shall have to un-die and try something else.

MenTaLguY: So it’s you! After 95 years of existence I finally know where I got my name from! I can die in peace now.

(and if you’re wondering, my parents had an accident with a contraceptive and a time machine. What? Do you really think Douglas Adams invented everything? No, in some cases he just adapted the facts and changed the names to protect the people involved)

It’s cool, why, you can keep using me.

sporkmonger: You’ll need the most recent version of GreaseMonkey.
