'bakery Bar

Click for Croissanterie, Press for Patisserie, Boulangerie Button

I'm using IE5 and when I click the 'Home' button on the Standard Buttons bar, of course it goes to the Halfbakery. But for those less enlightened, (or who share work/university computers) how about a halfbakery easy-access button?

If we can download a google toolbar, we should be able to download a bakery bar! (I'm visualising something rather like the bar at the bottom of this page which shows the general categories.)

Google Toolbar FAQ http://toolbar.google.com/faq.html
A Windows-only ActiveX control that collects information about what sites you're visiting to "improve your browsing experience", but you can turn that off. [jutta, Aug 30 2001]

       The right way of doing this (if any) would be to build generically on the RSS / RDF formats the halfbakery already publishes its state in. That way, it wouldn't be limited to the halfbakery, but you could get the same sites you can get on, say, userland.com.

       Oops, I must have stumbled into the wrong place. I thought this was where I could get a dose of Nutribooze in a Cocktail Sippy Cup.

       How about putting a bookmark in 'favorites'? Or a link on the 'quick launch' toolbar?   

       Not difficult to do in any case...Create shortcuts to the sections of the .5Bakery you want, put them in a folder, then drag the folder to the edge of the screen and it turns into a toolbar. You can set it to autohide and things just like the start bar.

       <sob story>I found the Google toolbar knackered my browser if I opened too many browser windows (even though I only had a few open at any one time). After a certain point, it would refuse to draw the contents when I opened or re-sized a window, just leaving a blank space. I can only assume it was running out of GDI handles because it failed to release them when a window was closed. I was just using IE5 on Win 98, so I don't know why. I was very sad, and hid the google toolbar, since when my google-less browsing's been fine.</sob story>

       Hi [jutta] does the bakery still publish RDF? And if so, what are the instructions?

       I haven't turned it off, though it's been a while since I've paid attention to it. Any view's "edit" link should have an "rss" next to it that points to what passed for RDF about a decade ago. (View in this sense = list of more than one idea that you can customize out the wazoo if you want.) See link for the help page on it.
