Three new RSS files that come with slashcode to announce:
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.
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.
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.
Not much to report in this one, other than to say this is the 7,000th story posted to LISNews.
Thanks to everyone who has made this possible:
Bob Cox, Jen Young, Lee Hadden, Steve Fesenmaier, Charles Davis, Charley Hivley, Gary Deane, and the thousands of other people who shared a story, or two with us over the years.
Special Big thanks to all of the LISNews authors: Aaron,
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.
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 to All, and to all a good night!
Everyone say Congratulations to LISNews author Ieleen, who got married last week, and ended up on the Front Page Of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution thanks to her unusual wedding.
\"Lee Gregory took the hand of Wendell Neal in holy and unusual matrimony Friday upon the checkered platform of Atlanta Motor Speedway\'s victory lane. No organ played \"Here Comes the Bride.\" Rather, the couple was serenaded by the roar of jet driers trying to prepare a wet track for the day\'s practice and qualifying runs.\"
Over the years we\'ve had some funny from the X-X-X-X dept\'s around here. I\'ve done a bit of digging, and pulled out all the depts that end in *brarian, and posted the collection below for your Friday enjoyment.
I\'m not sure if anyone actually reads them regularly or not, but here they are...
And so on..... -- Read More
