Why didn't I see these 'ping' posts earlier? Looks to me like I've got some integration to clean up! HA!

So the posts below that say something like 'ping' were made from checking off a checkbox at my other blog, which means this stuff worked. :D Good. Now this also means that I have to figure out which one works...I tried quite a few different iterations (got up to 15 before I stepped away from it:S). So this is something you can do with webservices, eh? Spiffy.

I'm getting close...Trying to figure out what's going wrong here....must ping more.

Also, thanks Scott for the simpleblogservice...I think this will be the way to go, of course using post to put new entries in based on an infiniblog bit. I've got to check with Chris, but I think I will make the code available for download on my site...once I get more than just a blog working there, of course:P!

The modifications I've made are simple yet important [to this geek anyway] and include identifying a blog by virtual directory (which is what must be happening in this here blogspace) and geoUrl service via geo.blah meta tags - it works, it's cool, and I saw my personal blog show up on the map over there. Too cool. I have other plans here, too - I just got this damn day job thing that makes me put on my thinking cap sometimes. Maybe it's time to get into the zone.;)

Great job, Scott. I've decided to clean up my dotnetblogspace a little bit, so I've moved my story links here. Mucho cleaner, IMHO.

I really, really like various tools that mix blogspace with meatspace.  GeoBlog is frickin cool. real time map of blog postings, as they happen. In theory, I should see myself popup on a map, a few minutes after posting this.  Very, very cool.[Objective]

I wonder if it will really work? we're about to see....

When Sam started a small revolution last month by using <xhtml:body> in his rss-feed, <snip/>

On top of that, it seems like every rss feed that uses xhtml:body, uses tags like <body xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> for every item ,

<snip/>

[Luke Hutteman's Weblog]

So am I missing something, or would an RSS feed be considered valid xhtml if using the <body> element in its items collection? As I'm typing this I'm thinking no - no <html> element, yadda yadda...

Okay, then - some more research is in order then. Two items - a filter for xhtml, and a way for extensible comments to bake in to the infiniblog. I've been looking thru some other's ideas on a CommentAPI, but I'm not sure how I should implement it - if what I'm thinking is true, an aspx page which uses a server-side form won't accept a POST from an outside script. I could use a webservice, but what about an .ashx?

The xhtml filter will require a bit more insight as to how HttpHandlers/HttpModules are handled in the runtime. We are implementing the rss feed thru an HttpHandler that accepts requests for .rss files. (We, well - Chris Hollander and my hi-jacking of his code:) So I need to find out if the HttpModules are still called when a Handler is implemented. Haven't really checked out the TraceLog yet.

Okay, enough blabbing - time to find out. cya!

The world must be about to end. Jeffrey Zeldman has an RSS feed and Chris Pirillo has a weblog format without a stupid font. Now if we could only get Chris to do a weblog without a stupid font and without a totally sexy photo as the background. I find the photo more distracting than the font. Just don't tell my wife, OK? Oh, hi Maryam! :-)

Chris, I've got to hand it to you for creating a UI that will keep users interested. 

Oops, was that supposed to be secret?;)

Just 'fixed' the incoming links control over to your right there-->

This is great stuff - I was going to roll my own type of deal here, but decided against it based on someone's advice. Thanks.

Whew! I've been uploading files for a minute over on the gotdotnet workspaces! It's kind of cool, tho - this is the first project that I've worked on with other .NET developers. It's cool to see others' code and see how they approach problems and attempt to solve them.

I'm enjoying it a lot, and I've even had a couple of things to contribute, believe it or not. This is also a good way to integrate my dotnetweblogs blog [this] with a different, personal blog that I can just blab on.

I'm guessing that most of the posts I make will be on both, seeing as I don't have a lot of interesting things to say that don't have to do with .NET -> I'm still building the other one for those few cases :) I just hope that ScottW doesn't change what a 'BlogPost' is too much - I'm stoked to get this stuff integrated. My other blog will be located above - just thought I'd share even tho you probably don't care. Whateva;)

I am getting pretty close to having a downloadable version ready for public consumption.

One thing I am still lacking is a nice "powered by ASPNetWebLog" image/button. Without help, this is what I came up with :ASPNetWeblog Logo

Anyone skilled with Fireworks/Photoshop hanging around here? Want to whip something up real quick?

[ScottW's ASP.NET WebLog]

If you have PSD files, send them to me and I'll give it a whirl. If not, let me know and I'll start from scratch. While I wouldn't call myself 'skilled' at photoshop, I know my way around it. 

Can you give me a clear concept of what you want (like, do you want the current color scheme, only flashy, um, er? do you want the words 'Powered By: ASPNetWeblLog' to remain exactly as they are - considering CaPs and all? do you want to keep the gecko in the image?) Let me know.
