The Demise of NewsX.org

Update 2015-08-15: Good news, everyone! NewsX.org is (sort of) back! Check out the 3.0 beta at beta.newsx.org. I’ve been refactoring the code quite a bit and generalizing the headline provider code to enable multiple sources in any format I care to write the code to parse :/ It might be a little rough around the edges but the headlines and various action buttons are working. Take a look! I’m actively updating it and adding news sources for the foreseeable future. Enjoy!

I’m sorry to have to report but the NewsX.org newsfeed provider, Moreover.com, has decided to end their free feeds. That means NewsX.org doesn’t have any data to use. Maybe someday I’ll implement different backend news feeds but until then NewsX is dead in the water, unfortunately. Thanks to all the visitors over the years! It’s been fun developing it! In the meantime, enjoy a laugh over at Archive.org with a history of NewsX since 2001! If you still need your news fix then Google News is where it’s at.

And the free gift is still available.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to you and yours! May this season bring you happiness and joy in Jesus Christ and his victory over sin and death! Christmas, celebrating the birth of the Saviour, marks but the beginning of his Victory over sin and death!

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.
Isaiah 9:6-7

Jesus Christ, God’s own Son, came to save sinners like you and I.

The good news is joyously simple…

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16

Black Bloc needs a White Wall

Been watching the G20 coverage on CBC and CP24 for the past few hours. From what I can tell the Black Bloc, a group of black-clad individuals, has been causing mayhem and violence. If this Black Bloc is giving the government an excuse to take away our freedom to protest then I propose a White Wall: A group of citizens acting against Black Bloc individuals to prevent their mayhem, to stop and apprehend and contain these individuals. In other words, good citizens acting against bad citizens.

NewsX.org :: News. Now.

NewsX.org is one of my hobby projects for seeing what javascript can do for a news headline web 2.0-ish interface.

Shameless self-promotion…

NewsX.org is one of my hobby projects for seeing what javascript can do for a news headline web 2.0-ish interface.

It’s effectively a news headline reader. You’ll be able to view headlines from over one-thousand categories.
