Steven Black has started self-publishing an RSS 2.0 Feed for the FoxForum wiki, using a Web Connection routine that generates the RSS on-demand, I think. It's hard to tell, because he's not including the optional "lastBuildDate" in the channel header.

Steven and I made some different design decisions in how we formed the feeds that are educational to look at. Steve stuffs nearly the entire content into the feed. This certainly provides a richer stream, and means he doesn't have to serve the content twice. On the other hand, I prefered to serve a "light" feed, that would encourage traffic to his site, since I didn't want to take away from any revenue-raising efforts he has on the site. In addition, I can easily skim the headlines of the site, and then navigate to the topics I'd like to read, and often contribute.

UPDATE: Steve's modified the feed with optional parameters so you can get shorter descriptions or none at all. Bravo!

Another browser exploit: this time it's Mozilla. Recent browser security bulletins have focused on Internet Explorer. Now there is news of an exploit (with a patch available) for Mozilla browsers running on Windows XP. [Ars Technica]

Mozilla moves to fix security vulnerability. The Mozilla Foundation has urged users of its open-source Mozilla Application Suite, Firefox browser and Thunderbird e-mail client to download a small patch to work around a security vulnerability discovered Thursday. [InfoWorld: Top News]
