RSS!

May 14th, 2017

I finally sat down and spent 20 minutes researching making RSS feeds. They’re super simple, just a little XML:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<rss version="2.0">
    <channel>
        <title></title>
        <description></description>
        <link></link>
        <item>
            <title></title>
            <description></description>
            <link></link>
        </item>
    </channel>
</rss>

So you make a new item set for each update. You can have multiple channels per file for things like blog posts and blog comments. You can also link multiple RSS files in the head of the HTML to a similar purpose.

So now ryliejamesthomas.net, blueberrysoft.ryliejamesthomas.net and blueberrysoft.ryliejamesthomas.net/web-log all have RSS feeds.

Also I remembered that I had Google Analytics code on a bunch of websites so I cancelled that gross shit.

Website juggling

February 15th, 2017

I’ve moved my main website over to ryliejamesthomas.net, and will now use ryliejamesthomas.com strictly for commercial things.

It’s always made me a bit uncomfortable using a .com for my main page, but I’ve always talked myself out of doing anything about it. UNTIL NOW.

That also means a bunch of subdomains have moved over: bangaiospirits.ryliejamesthomas.net, blueberrysoft.ryliejamesthomas.net, and videoworkscatalogue.ryliejamesthomas.net. There must at least be a bunch of broken blueberrysoft links floating round Internet now (again). I guess there’s also gallery.ryliejamesthomas.net, but there’s nothing there at the mo’.

illustration.ryliejamesthomas.com has stayed where it was. There will probably be a shop.ryliejamesthomas.com at some point? Haven’t thought too much about the .com, apart from putting links to my pages on etsy, bandcamp and itch.

The Game Making Tools website I’ve been working on also has a new address: gamemaking.tools 🙂 Makes it feel much less like a solo project, though there’ve only been a few wiki pages made by others 🙂

I’ve also been having fun doing more stuff with my web-hosting, like using it to host my E-mail (weening myself off web-mail), calendar, contacts, and a ‘cloud’ service.

This is the first thing that’s ever made me want a VR setup. Add and subtract stuff real quick. Has nice stereo sounds. Good amount of clumsiness. You can go inside!
