Links are finally back! The reason for absence is not my new job, but rather unfortunate changes in two APIs I use for creating this posts.

I used “shared” items in Google Reader for software updates and Google just turned those off in favor of Google+. So for now, the software updates section is gone. I tried couple of things but nothing works as fast as my previous solution. Sorry for that, blame big G.

For links I use great service Delicious, which is also going through some changes and its API is broken. A URL that should return just posts from specified date onward started returning all posts overnight. I had to do some change in the code of my Windows Live Writer plugin in order to get right stuff into posts. Luckily I’m using Linq to XML for parsing and one line was all I needed.

    If you want to grab stuff from Google Reader, you can make your Starred Items feed public in Reader's settings and grab that feed. That's what I use to build my Dew Drop posts.

    Alvin, thanks for the tip.

    I tried that but I had tons of problems. I use two Google logins at the same time, but the feed only worked for the first one - the default one. If I specified specific user, error greated me. I gave up... :(

    Except they also removed the option to turn tag/starred item feeds public. So if they weren't public before the change you're screwed.

    I'm probably migrating to hivemined when it goes live. Google likely lost me.

    Exactly, Jernej. I couldn't find that either.

    Thanks for pointing to hivemind, looking forward to it.

    Od tvojega posta čevljev sploh še nisem zavezal po starem. In tudi ne kaže, da bi jih še kdaj.

    Jaz sem se to naučil pred enimi desetimi leti od tabornikov. Še vedno moram zavestno naredil "narobe" prvo zanko, da je rezultat pravi. Če te eden v štartu nauči to pravilno, prihraniš ful časa v življenju. :)

    Definitivno :). Hecno, ker po slikah niti ne zgleda tako enostavno (itak, kateri vozel pa), ampak potem z videom je pa čista zmaga.

    you have so many links in the above article. It will pass a good period of time until I will browse all of them.
