RSS is simply a way for clients to access timestamped data. It happens to publish this data in XML format for ease of parsing (only important to us geeks!) You can get an RSS reader or use Yahoo to read new articles available on a blog or website.

What is RSS?: http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2002/12/18/dive-into-xml.html

Yahoo: http://my.yahoo.com/s/about/rss/index.html

Some readers I've used: http://www.rssbandit.org/ http://www.newsgator.com/home.aspx

Theres tons of readers out there, just google "RSS reader".

FYI, looks like Mambo can publish via RSS: http://www.mamboserver.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=20&Itemid=0

I have to agree with PHPBB, and would throw in http://www.postgresql.org/ for the database. While MySQL is very fast, PostgreSQL has many powerful features of a true database (like rollback). I *might* even be able to donate some time, but that is very dependant on what projects I'm working on.

Of course, I also suggest this photo for the WGA homepage:

Edited to include the originating page which explains the context.

Note: You should never include pictures of members on an organization website, it sometimes causes people to get big heads.

Ok, you got me!
But .... you think that's bad .... ALL of my geocaching pictures of me look that bad or worse! It's the only thing I don't like about geocaching ... it reveal to me that I have very viewable and ugly nostrils!

Here's another example, taken at "I believe" in Mequon ...
Click Here if you Dare!

... Incredibly similar ... but at least I kept my mouth shut!

Thanks for the info Opossum. PHPbb is set up to support a number of databases including PostgreSQL, so I'll look into it. Later versions of MySQL (>4.0) address some of the shortcomings you mentioned, specifically transactions, while remaining relatively fast.

(FYI: The current WGA site is using MySQL for storing various things including the membership list and COTM and, knock on wood, we haven't had any major problems.)

Based on the fishcachers bunny/pancake thing, it sounds like the suggestion above might be a good one. Image

--On the up side, they're clean nostrils...

Energy Saver: "...at least I kept my mouth shut!"
--I'm not even gonna touch that one! Image

Cheesehead Dave: "I'm a big user of MySQL..."
--Great! Now you know of something better! (laughing) Nah, really, if WGA
is using MySQL there's probably little reason to switch mid-stream, unless they
want to (re-)write code to use the additional features, and I probably
wouldn't. So, Dave, can the WGA put you down for 40 hours of volunteer work?

Other sites, like http://www.azgeocaching.com/ have put some pretty fancy sites
together. While AZ's may be a bit much for my tastes, can we contact them or
other states and share resources? Keeping scripts working and such has to be a royal
pain whenever GC.com changes something, but if each state maintained one script
and a list of what changed at GC.com, that wouldn't be so bad. I'm not saying
everyone should run off one server with one set of scripts, but a good part of the
scripting and driving mechanics must be sharable, in my very humble (although
outspoken) opinion.
