Site Updates: Fixed Feeds For Washington Post, Yahoo Buzz, And Ft. Worth Star-telegram

Apparently, the Washington Post had a redesign recently and their feeds were modified. Yahoo Buzz also had some changes lately - seemed like they streamlined the site and eliminated some categories. It is one of those “sunset” sites that they’re either planning to shutdown or sell off. Ft. Worth Star-Telegram also had a redesign, but that was probably more than a couple months ago. I didn’t notice until a user emailed me. Feeds for those three sites have been updated across the different categories on the top nav.

UPDATE: Add to the list of updated feeds.

  • "Storm The Gates" Mobile Game
    My friends just launched a mobile game called "Storm the Gates"! It's available on both Android and iOS. I'm not much of a gamer, so I didn't know what to do when I started it. But my 9-year-old son turned it on and knew exactly what to do. More
  • "Ip Man 3" Has New Release Date in China and Posters to Prove It
    Over at, I’ve written two articles regarding “Ip Man 3,” the film that’s holding its own in Asian territories against “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” If you’re not familiar with Asian cinema,”Ip Man” one of the most popular franchises in that area of the world. More
  • Live-Blogged The Golden Globes at MWB
    Yesterday, I live-blogged The Golden Globes -- for various reasons. First, it gets traffic. Second, I might as well do something useful while watching TV. Lastly, I was looking forward to seeing Ricky Gervais host the event again. Nothing against Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, but he’s my favorite. A google search revealed that the last time I did this for this award show was More

    (Image from the Sacramento Bee. Click here to view more images from the game.) What a win. It was a wild one, especially in the first half. We [Sacramento Kings] were down by 17 in the first quarter. In frustration, I was about to turn off the TV, but the teaml called a timeout. More
  • Did Some House Cleaning with a Couple Feeds - Digg, Fark, Yahoo Buzz, Bloglines
    I did some house cleaning over the last couple days with some feeds on the site. I removed Bloglines from Search because the site's closing down in November., which owns it, thinks that RSS readers are going the way of the dinosaurs. More
  • Moved SimplePie File Caching to Database
    A while back, My ISP told me my backups took half a day to complete, which is too long. If anything goes wrong during that period, the process would have to start all over again, which happened quite often. The customer rep told me that my server had too many files, and even though they didn’t take up much disk space when added up, the process of copying each one of them takes a lot of time. More
  • Buzzkill
    I knew Yahoo Buzz was one of the “sunset” sites - properties that would be shutdown by Yahoo. I still kept it on the site, but moved it to the bottom of the homepage. The quality of the articles being voted up have been on the low-end months before its eventual demise was announced; sometimes, you even get spam. More
  • Most Fed Articles
    Look to the right of the homepage and you’ll see a new module called “Most Fed Articles.” They’re AP articles ranked by the number of times they’re being used in the top newspapers in the US within the last six hours. More
  • Now I Know Why People Don't Put MySpace in the Corner
    On most websites nowadays, you'll see somewhere on the page, usually at the top right corner, links to the site's RSS feed, Twitter account, and Facebook fanpage. I've always wondered why MySpace, being the second largest social networking site by far, isn't on that list. More
