Out of curiousity, I was going to figure out how to add a Slashdot headline ticker to the side panel there, but there is absolutely no documentation on how to do this, anywhere. There are hundreds of code examples, but they're all in Perl or PHP (and a few java aplets [yuk]), so I'm left kinda stranded on how to do this in ASP. Now, I know most of you 'hardcore' people are going to tell me to ditch ASP, because its for scrubs or some shit, but there are more jobs out there for ASP, so I will continue to excel in it.

John sent me a PHP code example for it, but I cant make heads or tails of it, mainly becuase I've never seen functions like list() and each() and have no idea what in the hell they do. Yup, I'm declaring my ignorance, mark it down, it probably won't ever happen again.

So if any of you people can explain how to divine the slashdot headlines outta their rdf file (or outta any other site that lists their headlines in this format), please leave a comment and tell me how scrubby I am.

Well, I gotta get ready for my cousin's funera... um, wedding, so I'll see you all later.

(P.S.) Damn! This post knocks the 'ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US' post off the front page!

(P.S.2)Check out Stile's post for January 4th, and listen to the prank calls made with Arnie's voice from Kindergaten Cop, I almost pissed myself.
