Blog2006 ≫ RSS fun

Done a bit of work on my maps, changing the "feed" that provides the locations for the maps to be standard [tag]RSS[/tag]. Not for any great reason, but it does mean I'm using the same format as things like Yahoo's traffic tracker1, so I can plug their [tag]RSS[/tag] feed into my map pretty easily, and also I can export my feed into other applications. Had a load of grief with the optional geo:lat and geo:long fields in [tag]RSS[/tag] (the best way I could think of of putting latitude and longitude into the feed, obviously necessary for mapping), different browser's javascript implementations handle the XML differently, ho hum.

Still no word on just what time our new sofa will be arriving...

javascript: Programming language of the web, mostly how I make my living.
