Site of the day - 5th April


First of all a friendly warning! Today's site isn't for everybody and definitely requires a sense of humour - it's the official website of Weird Al Yankovic - see http://www.weirdal.com/.

I've known of Weird Al's work for many years, he's a song parody specialist. Here are some of his songs:
Amish Paradise - Based on the popular "Living in this Gangster's paradise" song
Eat it - A parody of Michael Jackson's "Beat it" song

You're Pitiful - A parody of you're beautiful by James Blunt, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgfpJWUYgbg

Bought it on eBay - A parody of "I want it that way" by the Backstreet boys

The list goes on. To get to like Weird Al, the main requirement is that you don't take things too seriously, Weird Al is for half an hour of fun, here and there.

Why not visit http://www.weirdal.com/ today and post a comment about what you think.

Site of the day - 4th April

My site for today is http://www.Feedburner.com

Feedburner is a web feed management provider which first launched in 2004. On August 15th 2008, Google completed migration of Feedburner into its group of services.

FeedBurner provides custom RSS (Really simple syndication) feeds and management tools to bloggers, podcasters, and other web-based content publishers.

Services provided to publishers include traffic analysis and an optional advertising system.

Today, two-thirds of FeedBurner's feeds include income generating advertisements.

Users can find out how many people have subscribed to their feeds and with what service/program they subscribed with.

Published feeds are modified in several ways, including automatic links to Digg and del.icio.us, and "splicing" information from multiple feeds.

Visit Feedburner.com today and see what you think, I believe it's a must for all bloggers.
