MFG, Ebay, AOL, etc… they ain’t got nothing on this… Who hasn’t been faced with this dilemma? You want to get your LOLCats delivered to you discretely… quietly, without needing a big ole’ browser window alerting everyone you like a little “Oh Hai” or “I see what you did there” every once in a while… Well here is your chance. “LolCats on AIR” allows you to see the 10 most recently added LolCats to Icanhazcheeseburger.com and even offers a click through to the original post. Download it and let me know what you think.
I could stand to have some additional niceties added, etc… but hey, what do you expect for a one evening “Hey can I do this?” kind of experiment. I do wish that ICHC had a more robust API, rather than just a RSS feed, but what can you do? I played around with using the AS3 syndication lib, etc from Google code, but a simple RPC service was smaller and E4X worked just fine… all in all only 332kb!
