That is decidedly *not* the lazy way to do things. Lazy meter is red lining. Instead I figured someone must have written code to do exactly this already, and surely I could just use what they’ve done. And lo and behold, two seconds of googling and I found two different sites that do this. My lazy meter was moving back into the green!
Of course, you might rightly point out that this is not the most efficient way of delivering this content. Here is a diagram how the home page gets to you after you request that page:
Step 1, your request goes to the CleverHumans web server.
Step 2, the page goes back to your computer. Simple right? In a sane world, this is where it would end. But, no!!! I gotta be lazy so…
Step 5 and 6, the Feed2JS servers then request the RSS feed from the CleverHumans site (the site you started at, remember).
Step 7 and 8, the Feed2JS site then takes that RSS feed and turns it into formatted text that is finally displayed on your computer for reading.
Crazy right? You should see how I cook my toast.tags: meta - programming
