End Browsing, Syndicate Everything

An example of my desktop when I come to work in the morning. In each text file, changes are contained for pages that I keep track of, which do not provide feeds. No changes — no file. This provides a good overview of which sites have new content for me to browse to.

Before I discovered I used to have a ‘browsing cycle’ which was contained in my portal (see prototype). Later on, having been inspired by feeds, I set up a bunch of cron jobs so that I can syndicate static HTML pages and only see changes (once they happen) in my Desktop. The full and detailed instructions are still on this site in case anyone seeks to do the same. if you use Windows, you might need to run everything on top of Cygwin.
