2. Coach's Corner with Mike Briggs - RSS And Listings Manager
Coach's Corner with Mike Briggs - RSS And Listings Manager Hi Everyone!

I hope you're doing well and are ready for another tutorial courtesy of Coach's Corner. Everyone in the office has been sick as a dog: whether it's bad case of the flu or a nasty cold. Somehow I've managed to be immune to it all. I attribute it to strength of character and a healthy lifestyle, and not luck at all.

Having a bit of time to myself in the office has given me a chance to play around with the RSS feed tutorial we have for Article Manager.

I've actually been able to get an RSS feed working with Listings Manager. This means that frequent visitors to your site can always keep up-to-date with your listings, like the latest properties to go on the market or the most recent cars you have on your lot (or whatever other products you're cataloguing with Listings Manager).

If you have questions about setting this up (or have any ideas about improvements), feel free to drop me an email or post to our forum.
3. Google Maps Mars
Google Maps Mars No, it won't give you directions to the nearest gas station, but you can still do a view-from-space tour of the Martian landscape.

The maps were made available through images taken by NASA's orbiting Mars Odyssey and Mars Global Surveyor. They can be viewed three different ways (altitude, visible-imagery, and infrared), and you can browse the links to look at particular features or search for them by name (like the infamous "face"). Take a look!
4. Useful Developer Links
Useful Developer Links I came across a couple of sites with some great tools for web designers and web masters. I considered keeping them a secret, but I generously decided to share them with you in this newsletter. I'm pretty cool that way. ;)


browsershots.org
Ever wonder how your site looks to the guy running Linux and using a Galeon web browser? Well, I've never even heard of Galeon, but now you can see what they see at Browsershots.org.

Currently in beta, Browsershots takes a screenshot of your website and shows you what it looks like in a number of different browsers. Find out what it looks like in any flavour of Gecko: Firefox 1.0 or 1.5, Mozilla 1.7, and even Linux browsers like Epiphany and Galeon. Find out what visitors using Opera, Safari, Konquerer (and of course IE 6) see when they come to your site. It does take some time for your screenshots to generate, depending on the number of sites that are queued, which was a minor annoyance - a broadband connection has made me expect instant gratification.

At last, you can make sure your page looks great to even that last 0.01% of your users!


No Programming Contact Form Generator
I'm not a programmer, so sometimes setting up a contact form on a web site is a bit over my head. This script makes it super simple by generating a contact form for you, no programming required.

You just select the fields you need (name, address, message, etc), enter your email address, and click generate. The code for your contact form will be created instantly. Add the generated code to your site and you're done!

5. Yahoo! Announces Developer UI Library
Yahoo! Announces Develoloper UI Library If you develop your own applications you'll probably find the new Yahoo! User Interface library pretty cool. The UI library is a set of JavaScript utilities and controls, designed to help make your applications more interactive.

It includes all sorts of free open source goodies like a color picker, tree view navigation component, and a slider control. And to make things even easier for you, you can add easily them to your application by inserting just a few lines of code and an included CSS file.

To get an overview of the different components or download them for free simply check out the Yahoo! Developer Network.
6. Developer Tools Added to the htmlArea.com Directory
Developer Tools Added to the htmlArea.com Directory The link directory at htmlArea.com has long been the best place to find browser-based WYSIWYG editors. A few months ago, we began expanding it to include other web software components, like color selectors, date pickers, and menu builders.

Recently, we've added some other great resources for web site and web software developers, listing some of the best sites we've found to get stock icons/photos and website templates. And for programmers, we've also included a list of code compression utilities.

If you're building a site or a web application, there's a good chance you'll find something you need at htmlarea.com.
7. Windows Live - Microsoft's Google Killer?
Windows Live - Microsoft's Google Killer? Microsoft's new search portal, Live.com, recently had a total makeover. Touted by some as Microsoft's "Google killer," Live.com is Microsoft's way to take the desktop to the web. Their plan is to provide a variety of services, all under one roof.

You can currently do the usual portal stuff: read news, check email, perform searches, etc. So what's different then? Well for starters the level of customization you can do, such as displaying your local weather or your most recent emails. Also, changes are done without having to wait for the page to reload, everything is updated on the fly without refreshing the page.

Other new features include the ability to subscribe to syndication feeds directly from search results. There's also a new search history feature that lets you keep track of sites you've visited, a clock, a notepad, and an area that includes shortcuts to content on MSN.com.

First Impressions? Cool design, very customizable. Google Killer? Probably not, but still not bad.

Check it out.
