Read Planet Fedora a Better Way

October 23rd, 2008 by Charles Peng No comments »

Well, I just created a group called “Fedora User Group” in soup.io. Soup.io is a social aggregation tool that looks to combine all your as well as your contacts’ social media into a long stream. It’s a great fuction I need. With Soup.io,  I am now able to add Planet Fedora RSS and other Fedora-related RSSes to combine into just ONE and show in ONE webpage.

You can now visit Fedora User Group URL http://fedora.soup.io or http://f.pengjiayou.com to read blog entries on Planet Fedora now. (Soup.io was blocked in China, so for Mainland China Fedora users, please visit f.pengjiayou.com). Soup.io has a good reading experience, there are no “pages” buttons, instead, the scrool bar of your browser is endless, until you read to the very first item.

Charles’ Readers Community

I am so happy to announce the luanch of my new forum Charles’ Readers Community for all my blog readers. This community is a forum based on bbPress. bbPress is a very good forum software with a twist from the creators of WordPress. It’s very ease of use, ease of integration, and speed. What’s most import is that it’s very light-weighted and powerful enough with add on features through its extensive plugin system.

Just because it has so many features to meet my requirements, and, it’s also a work of WordPress developer team, it can be easily intergrated with my WordPress blog, it became my readers’ community software.

My Fedora (KDE Environment) Desktop Screenshots

I installed both GNOME and KDE environments in my Fedora system. I personally much prefer the GNOME desktop, and seldom went to KDE desktop, but I had a try KDE last day and took some screenshots. KDE 4.1 is much better than ever, but I am not familiar it… and even don’t know how to use it. :sad:
