Clever Nothing, site feeds, openp2p, 1000 places, common dreams, adult comics and searches

My friend Brandon started up a Fark-like message board called Clever Nothing after getting banned or something from Heatkernel is a frequent poster there.

And in case you need an RSS or Atom XML feed of nanothoughts, the site feed link is on the sidebar. (I know all 3 readers will be dying to do this.) Also, you can add to by clicking on the banner in the sidebar. is now linked in the sidebar too. p2p is the future, folks. I just wish I knew more about it. hence the link.

And I recently received Patricia Schultz's 1000 Places To See Before You Die. There are way too many hotels and restaurants, but overall it has a really good assortment of interesting sights to visit. I'll post more about it later when I get through more of it. Right now, I'd give it a B+ for the average reader and an A for travel buffs. The best thing about the book is that it introduces the casual reader to travel ideas they might not have contemplated before. e.g. Easter Island, the North Pole (which Norway technically owns), Horseback riding in Mongolia, and climbing up to super remote villages in Bhutan. Here's an MSNBC article about it.

Here's a pretty radical progressive site called Common Dreams that r e g a l introduced me to. Here's an interview between Kurt Vonnegut and Kilgore Trout.

My friend Ron from high school runs a couple sites for "adults". Here's into certain niche markets, like Adult comic books, superheroes etc. and Adult games like strip poker, memory, breakout etc. . I told him I'd mention them, so there ya go. Try and see if you can see some boobies or what not. Speaking of breasts, I think I'll mention that Lindsey Lohan isn't that bad. When does Hilary Duff turn 18? (Shameless attempt at to generate site traffic.)

extra bonus: some recent searches that led to NanoThoughts:
weephun, clevernothing, peak hubbert opponent, nanothoughts, metabolite benzoyleconine, plastic operator folder, life is a rock mp3, cypherphunk, lyrics down the walls of heartache. Eventually I'll start to blog about nanotechnology, nanograss and all things nano.

Do you have a non-Atom RSS feed? I don't see a link.

Hi JP,
I put a new Feedburner button next to the button. That should work, let me know if it doesn't.

Thanks Rog. You're double-awesome because you don't use those stupid Haloscan as your comment system. Neither Haloscan's (probably IE specific) Javascript nor Atom XML are supported by Opera.

I'd switch to FireFox, but I'm holding out for 1.0.. or more likely, 1.0.1 or whatever the first bug release after 1.0 is.

No problemo. I use Firefox 1.0 and Haloscan and Atom both work great. Firefox 1.0 actually puts a little RSS button in the bottom right of the browser if they page you are on has an xml feed. You can then click it and make a live bookmark for that page. Pretty cool. I mostly just use though for normal blogs and for meta-blogs, well I try to hit those every day or so during my copious downtime. Peace.
