Robots.net RoboMenu Widget

Posted 9 Mar 2006 at 20:45 UTC by The Swirling Brain Share This

We have just released the RoboMenu Widget! The RoboMenu widget is a little desktop program that runs and stays on your desktop via the Yahoo Widget Engine (aka Konfabulator) and displays the latest Robots.net Headlines and Robot of the day! This all started when Rog-a-matic came up with the great idea and then got The Swirling Brain to go and build it. We got approval from steve to release it and viola here it is our robo-goodness realized! I think the Yahoo Widget Engine only works on Windows and Mac right now but hopefully they'll have a Linux version sometime. Go now and download the Yahoo Widget Engine and then download the RoboMenu widget and get the Robots.net News and Robot of the Day feeds on your desktop today! Stop back by and write us back what you think!


Great Service !, posted 11 Mar 2006 at 16:13 UTC by Ragooman » (Apprentice)

This is really great. I like to try this out.

I just thought I let anyone know that we also use a RSS feed from your website to our Robotics website. There's a service available from http://www.feeddigest.com/ which offers several feeds on a free account. It works great too and adds some liveliness to our website. http://www.pghrobotics.org/

Cool, Pittsburgh Robotics Society! Cool to hear about you guys! Thanks for using the RSS feed. That's a great point! Anyone can use the robots.net feed by grabbing it at: http://robots.net/rss/articles.xml There's more info about the robots.net rss feed at: http://www.robots.net/syndicate.html Or, you can use the RoboMenu widget too!
