It’s 2 PM on Friday. You are not doing anything remotely important, perhaps calling your bookie or sexting a mistress from the company-provided Blackberry. Clear your conscience, support the arts, read our beer blog.
The top 10 worst beer names… Brother Barley McHops wrote this, and frankly it’s a disappointing effort. Two beers from Stone Brewery? Intellectual laziness. Surely you can do better. What did we miss?
Also the Aleheads RSS feed is operational. Cut and paste into ITunes or better yet Miro and the newest episode of the Maltercation BeerCast will download to your computer automatically. We’ll have a subscription widget installed shortly. For those graduating college before 2001:
“RSS (most commonly expanded as “Really Simple Syndication”) is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works—such as blogentries, news headlines, audio, and video—in a standardized format. An RSS document (which is called a “feed”, “web feed”, or “channel”) includes full or summarized text, plus metadata such as publishing dates and authorship. Web feeds benefit publishers by letting them syndicate content automatically. They benefit readers who want to subscribe to timely updates from favored websites or to aggregate feeds from many sites into one place. RSS feeds can be read using software called an “RSS reader”, “feed reader”, or “aggregator“, which can be web-based, desktop-based, or mobile-device-based. A standardized XMLfile format allows the information to be published once and viewed by many different programs. The user subscribes to a feed by entering into the reader the feed’s URI or by clicking an RSS icon in a web browser that initiates the subscription process. The RSS reader checks the user’s subscribed feeds regularly for new work, downloads any updates that it finds, and provides a user interface to monitor and read the feeds.”
As Bartles (or was it Jaymes?) was fond of saying: Thank you for your support.
