Webalizer.conf hacking
I've been working on cleaning up my webalizer.conf file in order to get better statistics. Since I haven't seen anyone posting the following information, I figured I would, since it might interest people who are using the Webalizer stats tool.

eBay to RSS Generator
Via Tareq Tujjar: "I have been a subscriber to the Lockergenome for almost 2 years. Being a dedicated GEEK myself I find the content to be very useful. I particularly appreciate the new website about RSS. It actually gave me the motivation to finish this eBay to RSS generator. It is a FREE utility that generates RSS feeds for your favorite eBay search. I have been testing it for the past 5 days, and it seems to be doing good. This is a BETA version and could still have some bugs. I built it using .NET without using the COSTLY eBay API. Therefore, I can offer it for free. Please check it out, and let me know if you have any suggestions."

Distributed Wiki
Distributed Wiki is what you get when you take something like HTMLHelp and add Wiki-like editing capability and content synchronization via a central server or P2P.

More scattered bits.  Manuals as whiteboards and discussion forum.  Continually updated product documentation.  Kill view and sliding filter bar.  Admins updating and customizing contents especially terms by replacing generic terms with domain specific terms.  Local cache of content with updates trickling in and out.  Living documents.

Ray Ozzie's Groove is a good platform for this stuff.  ShareDoc.  HelpShare.  LiveHelp?
