I've noticed a lot of GL sites out there that have a block displaying content from this site. I'd like to add a similar block. Is the code available for this? Thanks, Squatty

and it's easy as pie. Go to Blocks admin, add a new "portal block" and for the rdf file use this: http://www.geeklog.net/backend/geeklog.rdf Hit save and you're done.

RDF/RSS, as this type of file is called, is a standard that is also used by other websites to publish their headlines. For example, you can import the headlines from Slashdot: http://slashdot.org/slashdot.rdf or, for our German readers ;-) from Heise online, http://www.heise.de/newsticker/heise.rdf.

Look around. Once you know what to look for, you'll find many news sites supporting this format.

bye, Dirk
