[REBOL] Re: Fastest way to see new messages

From: tserpa::earthlink::net at: 10-Jul-2003 16:13

A blog would be great for publishing RT related news. Making updates available in RSS would allow us to use news aggregators and obviate the need to constantly check the RT site. One solution to circumvent outgoing smtp from RT and it's related pitfalls, is to continue to accept posts through email and\or a web-based form (or even a Reblet) and then make posts available with RSS. I guess that has already been proposed - creating an RSS feed for the new web archive. Although, you need to take into account the bandwidth consumed by the 500 to 2000 or whatever the number is of aggregators that are polling your server every few minutes. I find sites like the one below to be very useful, but this is more of a collection of individual blogs - so I'm not sure if it can spark any ideas. Also, I'm not sure that any aggregators exist that can gather related posts and display them in a threaded view. Maybe a nice little Rebol based news reader would be in order. Ted
