'runs on the Internet'

Distorte

There is this mid-point, I think, where one is not quite imaginative enough to write pure fiction, or even dress their life up as such, and yet not quite interesting enough to simply document their day-to-day. At this mid-point we find writers who simply half-ass both, never offering much clue as to whether we're reading invention, confession or something in between. Yes, this has become another one of those sites.

misdirected comments

Gumbaby

The Gumbaby Project is an attempt to gather together a directory of comments posted on blogs (and guestbooks, and other inappropriate places) by people apparently led astray by search engines. Certain threads on some sites seem to attract confusion over and over again. People arrive at a blog, mistake the author for a celebrity, an expert, or an authority, and they begin talking as if that's who was listening.

"dynamically updated RSS"

RSS Feeds via JavaScript
It makes use of a PHP script (demo version running on our server) that parses the XML feed, and returns a JavaScript set of write commands that insert the information into your page. All you need to do is to insert a simple JavaScript line of code in the part of your page where you want the feed. The only other thing to tidy it up is to link or insert a sytle sheet to format the output.
