Riding The Bus

No, not Jerome Bettis. The Internet Tourbus has spent years giving tips about where to go and what to see on the Web. Today's issue (which will be in the archives at some point) has two articles of note:

  • A link to Dave Taylor's explanation of Really Simple Syndication (RSS) and RSS Aggregators. Learn what the little orange "XML" box is for.
  • The Bus's own Bob Rankin's Guide to Linux. The Bus mostly caters to the Windows crowd, but apparently Rankin uses Linux. Smart guy. There's even some hints about using Perl in here. Just glancing at the table of contents (and the reviews of the print version) it seems to be RPM oriented, i.e., best for the RedHat/Fedora/Mandrake crowd. I'll post more when I know more.
