Clean up of RSS feeds

The number of registered RSS feeds are slightly below 150 chemistry oriented blogs; a number of them have ceased to exist, or moved to a different host, or simply changed URL. I just spent an hour or so, debugging these changes, as the Cb software does not really report that. But things are now updated again.

Friday, August 17, 2007 DNS problem?

In an attempt to get online, it seems that the DNS system got confused; At least, the server is not reachable... more on this soon.

Update: OK, the DNS seems to be updated, maybe fixed itself, or some propagation problem. Anyway, now the MySQL server has gone down. So, still no running Cb :(

RDF in Chemical blogspace

I have been playing with RDF-ing molecular space a bit, and results are getting slowly in shape:

This screenshot shows the HTML created for this RDF file on the fly by the web browser. The current version extracts information from Chemical blogspace and ChEBI (not much yet, though :).

The molecule pages in Chemical blogspace link to this RDF, and that's really what I wanted to show right now:

Why I do this? Among others, give me all boiling points for some compound with one (SPARQL) query, instead of having to browse several web resources manually. Oh, BTW, the HTML view of the RDF document uses chemical RDFa.
