NGS Magazine RSS Feed

Relates to Blogging

I have just discovered, a little late I might add, that National Geographic now provides an RSS feed allowing excerpts from the latest magazine to be syndicated. Since my copy tends to take a couple of weeks to make its way across the pond, this service provides a nice sneak preview of what is to come.

Surfing the Cribbar

Relates to Surfing

No not me - I wish! But early December saw a run of large swells hitting the south west of England as K2 repeatedly breached 30 feet and local high pressure provided offshore winds. None better than December 9th - the day the Cribbar went off. These photos on the BBC website show that British waves can occasionally compete with Hawaii, Indo and the rest.

Google Implements XMLHTTPRequest

Relates to SEO and DOM Scripting

Live data retrieval has found its way onto Google in the guise of Google Suggest. As well as returning suggestions for the search term as it is entered, each suggestion is accompanied by the number of results, making this quite a useful tool in the initial stage of SEO.

On the client side the concept is really just a reworking of Bitflux's Live Search, although a quick look under the hood at the somewhat obfuscated javascript source shows the Google developers have given preference to the MSXML library instead using XMLHTTPRequest as the fall back when the initial try/catch blocks fail. Of course, Google utilises its immense power on the server side to return results from its 8 billion strong database, based on popularity, in a split second.
