Got Questions? We got Answers! The LISNews FAQ

As promised, there's a New FAQ in town, The LISNews FAQ.
Let me know if you have questions that are not answered here. The new code has oodles of features that I may have missed, so if you've spotted something that doesn't make sense, please don't hesitate to ask.
Always remember, the only dumb question is the question that you don't ask.

One Week With SlashCode

So we’ve been “Beta Testing� the newest slashcode
for a week now, here’s what I’ve learned…. I’d love some feedback on the new
site, your thoughts and ideas are always appreciated.

I think I may have moved a little too fast. The new site has more bugs
(listed below) than I thought it did while we were in “alpha mode,� and
it’s making my life quite difficult. I still don’t see any
show-stoppers, so we need not switch back, but it’s annoying to chase
things around like this. My biggest fear is we’ll lose some authors.

The SlashCode is awesome. It's powerful, flexible, extensible and
unbelievably hard to understand at this point. Everything I want to do
is a million times harder now, it’s a very slow learning process for
me. Everything will take an extra long time. This is taking up even
more of my time and stretching me in ways that are testing my ability
to get anything done. -- Read More

New RSS Feeds

Three new RSS files that come with slashcode to announce:

http://www.lisnews.com/index.rss
http://www.lisnews.com/index.xml

http://www.lisnews.com/index.rdf

The old RSS feeds will remain the same and begin to be updated regularly soon.
Let me know if you have ideas for new feeds.

LISNews Get Together in Toronto On Saturday

I\'ll be in Toronto for the weekend at the big conference. On Saturday I\'ll be spending some
time at the InMyBook.com booth. It\'s #4047, on \"level 800\" in the South
Building -- in the center back, near BookPage.


Also, the LISNewsterz will be getting together Saturday night for food/drinks:
We\'ll be meeting at The Fairmont Royal York [100 Front Street West]
6 pm on Saturday, 21 June, in the Epic Restaurant. The Epic is in the lobby.
The reservation is under Carver/LISNews.
Let me know if you\'ll be coming so I can get us a bigger table.

The Top Librarian Personalities On The Web II

I just noticed it\'s been way more than a year since we last nominated folks for our Top Librarian Personalities On The Web.
Please Contact Me, and/or discuss below, with your ideas for this years list. I\'ll be soliciting nominations for the next couple weeks, and post the results sometime in late June. I will also post a reminder before voting closes.

The New LISNews RSS Feeds

I\'ve created 6 news RSS feeds for LISNews. The current Feed won\'t be moving, but the rest of the new feeds in all in The New RSS Directory. All feeds are updated once an hour.
I\'ll be adding new feeds as I have time, but don\'t be afraid to ask for something new if you have any ideas.

If this makes no sense to you, go read RSS For Non-Techie Librarians by Mr. Steven M. Cohen. If you\'ll be in DC for CIL \'03 Steven Stuffy Cohen and Jenny Shifty Levine will be speaking on how to use RSS.

We\'re Home!

If you\'re reading this, you\'re looking at the new LISNews server. So far, the onlything that has gone wrong, that I know of, was the loss of a few comments.
No comments were deleted on purpose, I deleted all the comments for a few hours, by mistake, so I had to restore from a back up that was about 16 hours old.
Other than that, all is well.

Be sure to let me know if you\'d like to host a site with us.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to All, and to all a good night!
