I just learned of the existence of this sub on reddit which is a bot publishing all news articles from a long list of news sources. I assume it is crawling RSS feeds. You still have to deal with the bullshit of each news agencies' javascript, but it's a decent way to skim headlines, at least. Well, if you've opted out of the new reddit design.

Yeah, I just always replace the "www" with "old" to make Reddit use decent web design.  :shrug:  ALAS, sometimes when you click on a Reddit page link in an old.reddit.com page, it goes to the new crappy Reddit version instead of the old.reddit version.  Then I have to slightly modify the URL manually, like a cave man.

Still, it's a lot easier than un-AMPing idiotic shit AMP versions of pages.

I'll have to take a little time to see how that AutoNewspaper sub compares to the news/new sub.

I have this dream that someday local news websites will realize that THEY NEED TO PUT THEIR LOCATION AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE because not everyone reading that page is local.  You know, that whole "world wide" web thing.  :eyeroll:

r/news is submitted by users, so only certain articles of interest are posted, whereas the AutoNewspaper posts everything that has been posted (to RSS) by the news agencies. I think.

The date is handy sometimes too.

I was watching some of the training I have to do every year, and noticed that in none of the videos I watched are there any IT staff. Admittedly, the training is mostly about how to be a nice employee that patients and families will like, but none of the dwellers in the dark seem to show up.

I guess it makes sense, though. "Can you tell me where the outpatient pharmacy is?"

"Well the programming namespace is RXO, the storage global is ^RX(2,, but where it is physically? Nope."
I'm generalizing from one example here, but everyone generalizes from one example. At least, I do.

 Oh you're lost.  Have you tried shutting your self down, waiting 10 seconds, then bringing yourself back up?

Are you sure you're plugged in?  You're not?  Well, there's your problem.

That would be an excellent use of my tax dollars!  Be sure to post it to youtube!

Dog's name in a book - Mr. Eviscerator. You have to have the "Mr." in front, because he's a good dog.
