Silverlight News in my Side Bar
No, not my Vista SideBar, at least not yet…I’ve added a simple script to my site to show the latest from Silverlight News in my blog’s side bar. Since each twit is formatted the same way, I was able to grab the URL and text from each post and mash them together in a simple anchor tag.
If you would like to add the Silverlight News feed to your blog, download the script and add this code to your site:
<div id="slNews_div"><h2><a href="http://twitter.com/silverlightnews">Silverlight News</a></h2><ul id="slNews_list"><li></li></ul></div>
The html is completely configurable and CSS-friendly. Just make sure you don’t change the id of the unordered list element and it will continue to work.
While I was messing around with my blog, I also added the MIX08 section in the side bar. I’ve seen so many “I’m going to MIX posts, are you?” I thought I’d participate. I did modify the original vector ball just a bit, though.
I’ve also updated my About page which now covers more accurately what I am working on and what I’m into right now. Overall, I think this is just the beginning. 2008 is going to be a great year.
