Weblogs galore

In addition to Radio that I purchased for its outliner, but that also includes all the workings of a weblog publishing system, and news aggregator, I have found a new piece of software that makes my days keeping updated on what is new on the weblogs I visit a whole lot easier.

The programs name is AmphetaDesk, and to quote the makers of AmphetaDesk:

AmphetaDesk is a news aggregator – it sits on your desktop, downloads the latest news that interests you, and displays them in a quick and easy to use (and customizable!) webpage. With thousands of channels for selection

Its developed with Perl and XML, with the GUI functions done in Perl using libraries for the specific OS. (Available for Windows, Mac and as source code – which should make it fairly easy to get up and running on a Linux system).

It comes with a huge selection of XML feeds in its channel overview, but its really easy to add any XML feed you want – like mine for example :-)
