I'm Absolutely Befuddled By A Google Reader Feature. And Other Things of Interest.

Saddam Hussein is dead. You can almost feel the national security threat level going down.

Anyway, I have a few things to talk about. The first of these is an issue with a feature on Google Reader. You're supposed to be able to add your recent shared RSS items to a webpage / blog with something they call a clip. Here is what it should like:

You can see an actual working version of this at Dids' Blog, which is where I got the idea from. Thanks, Dids.

This works really well with the new version of Blogger oh

wait, it doesn't. No, it doesn't work at all. And I can't figure out why. The first problem that Blogger had with it was that the code I was given by Google Reader to paste into my page was poorly formed. Something about a delimiter being needed in the code. This was no big deal, I found out what I needed and where it had to go, and added it. After this, I no longer got the error message telling me that the code was poorly formed. This time, instead, the additional content just didn't show up on my page at all. I have no idea why this is happening, but I'm going to scour the Internet to try and figure this out. Soon enough, I'll have my fucking shared Google Reader items on the sidebar for you, I swear it. If anyone knows how to fix this issue, please leave a comment here.

^^^January 01 2007: I solved the problem described above^^^
Here's how.

The next topic of interest is the image in my header. This is a picture that I took on December 18, 2006. It's of a little statue that sits in my room. Something that I'd like to do is take similar nice pictures of the other foo dog statues in my room, and use one of those PHP scripts to change that background image randomly. The only real issue with this is I guess I need to find a place that'll host the PHP script, for free.

My brain hurts today. Have a happy New Year.
