I finally found a bit of time to further work on the molecules part of the postgenomic.com software, and replaced the 'hot tags' tab on the front page, by the eight latest blogged about molecules. Additionally, the system now allows deep linking to molecules in the database via the InChI, for example for N,N,N',N'-tetramethylnaphthalene-1,8-diamine . This is what the front page now looks like:
Journal titles are extracted by the postgenomic.com software from CrossRef by default. However, ACS journals are not listed there, resulting in a situation that article titles are not given. Now, based on an example script from Euan, I set up a handle_acs.pl script to extract article titles differently. Over the weeks, however, more and more 'Unknown Title's showed up. Today, I added a few more ACS journal titles, and used the script to write equivalents for PubMed (which are not always picked up correctly) and BioMed Central. Most of the unknown titles are now correctly given again.

I noticed last Wednesday that not all blog items are reaching the webpage... there are found and stored in the database, but then nothings happens... But I have not had time to further explore the cause, but will look at this tomorrow again. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Update: I tracked down the problem to a RDF which was no longer a RDF feed, but now showed HTML content that the page was no longer found.
