More RSS and Cameras

Sep 28, 03:47 PM · from the mouth of Jake

RSS

So I stumbled upon two more pages about RSS.

The first is a whole section of CNET discussing the technology and a few programs to do the feed reading.

The second is just an article on Techdirt and on that one they talk about some new developments. Some people have done cool things involving screen scraping (where you read a web page and only pull out specific things) and you can do fun things like read comics, track FedEx packages, etc. I’ve been playing this weird web/text based game where you’re a vampire. It’s not very pretty like Doom 3 or anything, but it doesn’t require a lot of effort or time wasting. I was thinking about scraping my pertinent stats and feeding it up so I know when my movement points max out, etc.

Cameras

I wish it was news for Yimmy about the D200 but it is interesting camera news nonetheless for anyone curious about this type of stuff. The first medium format digital camera.

And while at Franni Alberti’s wedding on Saturday (now Franni Monk), watching Cout’s band play, I noticed that the two wedding photographers were using Nikon D1x’s. And supposedly are very popular (the other member was at a party some famous person was throwing) in the area because they jumped to digital while everyone was still testing it. I don’t remember the name of the studio sadly, but my mom might as the we had a relative of the owner sitting at our table and you know my mom and talking.

    D’oh on the cameras… yeah, I’m just not sure what I’m going to do. 10D’s and obviously 20D’s are the/going to be the most popular camera for wedding photographers around here. It seems like this is a Canon state.

    I have to give it to Canon, they’re doing an f*ing good job on their digis. Now I just have to decide whether or not I’m willing to wait on the theoretical D200 or the rumored “D3” and “D90” that are coming in the spring.

    I almost cracked yesterday and bought a used D70 to get me by. Then I remembered that I shouldn’t spend money on a temporary camera. :)
