More Signs That Things Are Changing In The Middle East
BBC News: US pulls out of Saudi Arabia
Although there aren't a lot of hostilities between the U.S. and Saudi's, there are rumblings in the middle east that Saudi Arabia is one country that needs to reform it's government from a royal-based to more democratic. What role will the U.S. play in this process now that we don't have military bases to protect in SA?
Tweaking Post-From-News-Aggregator For Speed and Consistency
I'm looking to do a little tweakage in my news aggregator posting software:
"Is there a template that the Post function next to each entry in the News Aggregator uses when it pre-populates my Home page posting text area? I'd like to modify it a bit."
Basically, when a news story pops up in my aggregator, I usually make the decision to read the full story based on the title or summary given. So I want to post those items, along with the link to the full story. And my news aggregator software has a simple 'Post' link next to each item that puts the information into my form for posting (kind-of giving me a head start). Well, I want to modify that head-start.
I want to be able to use that head-start as the full post, just in case I don't want to add anything to it. And I want it to look good if I decide to add my comments to the story underneath it.
I'm not really explaining this very good at the moment, so I'll stop.
