The Daily WTF, now without stupid comic

I’m a fan of the Daily WTF – not all of the posts are amusing, but enough of them are to keep me coming back. However, I detest the comic which the site carries – Mandatory Fun Day (MFD). Unfortunately the site only provides a single RSS feed, containing everything. In order to filter out MFD, I created a Yahoo Pipe to strip MFD related posts out of the feed and pass the rest of the RSS through. It can be found here.

Yahoo Pipes are a really nifty tool – you can do a lot more with them than merely filter out some content from an RSS feed, but this works for me quite nicely.

Wow. Simply wow.

Vicki did me the enormous honour of agreeing to wear my engagement ring last night. She’ll be making it official that she is the absolute love of my life, the person I want to share my life with.

Wow. That doesn’t say it very well at all, but there really no words to express my joy, so it’ll have to do.

Wow.
