Cemetech Microsummaries
Published by KermMartian on October 25, 2006 at 10:02:03 PM CST | Discuss this article (54)

Ahoy, all thee weblubbers who art among them too lazy to click links, arrrr. Matey, Cemetech now supports arguably one of the coolest additions to the new Firefox 2.0: microsummaries. These tiny links act like customized, single-item RSS feeds, showing a line of text customized in near-real-time instead of a static title for bookmarks. The new Cemetech microsummaries display the number of new posts since your last visit if you're offline, or "Cemetech|Online" if you're online at Cemetech. I'm open to any suggestions on improvements or changes. Without further ado, instructions!

1. Go to the Cemetech page you want to bookmark, such as the homepage, //www.cemetech.net
2. Click Bookmarks, then Bookmark this Page.
3. Click the down arrow to the right of "Cemetech | Home" (or whatever the title of the page you're on is) and instead choose "Cemetech | Online". Done!

I'm not yet sure what the default update speed is, but I believe it may be a bit too slow. The script of the serverside is optimized to be extremely low bandwidth, so if there's a way, I may customize it to update more frequently. Remember, feedback!
