Nifty Site News

For those lovers of Google News, there's another site called SportSpyder which does just about the same, but is devoted entirely to sports. What I like more about SportSpyder is that they update almost instantly AND now The Cub Reporter is one of the news sources. Check it out and I highly recommend bookmarking it if you like to stay up-to-date on Cubs news. On the left you'll see us listed an an independent news source and I think as long as we include the word "Cubs" somewhere in the post, it'll show up on the site. You can do searches as well, and just typing in Felix Pie came up with this week's Organizational Report as the top listing. I'm amused if anything.

This site is great. 10x better than ProSportsDaily.

Plus you can get the results via RSS

I have used various RSS aggregators for the Cubs and this one does not seem to be better or worse.

However, one thing that makes this worse for other teams is that appears to do a simple search for the mascot. As the Cubs is a unique mascot it will work. When I looked at the Boston College Eagles aggregation it was filled with Philadelphia Eagles stories. Sorry, that is neither "slick" nor "nifty".

Oh, also there are tons of ADS. No thank you.

Un related...but good article on the ugliness of the Cubs this year.

Thanks for the negativitly FLOORMASTER but your right, looks like sport calculator went a bit awry on BC, we will fix it later

I have no idea how RSS feeds work and have never used them. I'm sure they're fantastic though. As something that is simple enough to just bookmark and check for daily news, it works great in my opinion.

The RSS feed has no ads...intentional or not. And you can always use a plugin like Adblock if you need to.

And as Dal mentioned they'll fine tune their search so the 4 BC fans can get their news. For a free low hassle tool for Cubs searches this works pretty well.

(and sorry about the double post before)

RSS THE EASY WAY

Download a free copy of the excellent Firefox Browser.

Install it.

Browse yourself over to The Cub Reporter, for example.

Look down at the right corner of your bottom browser bar and you should see what Firefox calls a "Live Bookmark." It's an orange and white square icon. Pages that are syndicating RSS will cause that icon to appear.

Hover over it and a tooltip will pop up that says
something like "add live bookmark for this page's feed".

Left click on the icon and an option will appear to "subscribe to rss."

click on that and the rest is self explanatory.

Now you have subscribed to TCR's RSS feed.

Click on "Bookmarks" along the top bar of the browser. A list of your bookmarks will appear.

Move your mouse over the TCR listing and all the latest threads at TCR will dropdown in a hotlinked list.

Voila! RSS for dummies.

  • Now who can argue with that? I think we're all indebted to Gabby Johnson for clearly stating what needed to be said. I'm particularly glad that these lovely children were here today to hear that speech. Not only was it authentic frontier gibberish, it expressed a courage little seen in this day and age.
