    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

  • iTunes RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

  • Comments RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for global comments (any comment made to the board); each entry has a seperate comments feed, too

Still testing out the proxy…

Filed under: General — Charlie Summers @ 1:11 pm

Sorry, the only purpose of this post is to check out the proxy to oAuth. If that sounds like a bunch of gibberish, well, it kinda is. Twitter changed the way it accepts updates, requiring applications to use a system called oAuth which prevents having to give Twitter credentials to anyone else (I always wondered why people were so willing to give their Twitter password to anyone who asked).

That’s great, but the system I use here on the blog doesn’t support oAuth, and I don’t want to spend a lot of time working on this when so much else needs to be fixed on the server, so I’m testing out a cool proxy at that allows you to connect to their servers (with a different password than you use at Twitter) through the former Basic Auth system, and it connects to Twitter’s servers via oAuth.

Of course, if I messed something up in the setup, I’ll be reposting this again later… ;)
