Feed Validation: There are a couple of options for validating feeds.
- http://feedvalidator.org: You can enter a URL and view the validation results. Pretty self explanatory. However, we can’t figure out how to get it to access resources that are protected with basic auth. If you like, you can download the validator and run it locally at http://feedvalidator.org/docs/howto/install_and_run.html
- Google Feed Reader API: A great resource is the Google Feed Reader API. Rather than rehash too much here, browse over to Niall Kennedy’s post for a great introduction to the API and how to use it.
Firefox shortcuts for bookmarks: In Safari, you can use shortcuts like Apple-1 to load the first bookmark. Is there an equivalent for Firefox?
Nothing interesting to report today. Check back tomorrow.
