del.icio.us linkrolls

del.icio.us has many cool features, but they’re so well hidden in the bowels of the site that I often don’t discover them until months after everybody else. For any bloggers out there who don’t know about the del.icio.us linkrolls, I feel I should point them out. To generate the links on the right-hand side (front page only) I previously used a wordpress plugin that checked my ‘wongablog’ tag every half hour, generated some html and cached the output. Now del.icio.us have some clever javascript that does the same thing, but on a real-time basis. Swish. I hear that there’s also some kind of flash-based media player that can be used to insert mp3s etc. into post content – must check that out at some point.

Update: and as soon as I post, it promptly stops working…
Update 2: Nope, that was my fault 🙂
