Use a Google Spreadsheet as a simple CMS


Using Google’s Spreadsheet API, you can create a simple CMS for your website extremely easily. It’s as simple as making a new sheet with key/value pairs for any fields you want dynamically populated. You can then access the data from javascript via the JSON API. Any updates to the spreadsheet will be immediately reflected in your page.

The only downside to this approach is that the content of your page is populated by Javascript on the client side, so search engines won’t see the content of your pages during a crawl. You could overcome this obstacle by using the PHP API to pull the spreadsheet data and render the HTML on the server side.

    Hi guys, I have a question regarding filesystem of new iPod Classic and 3rd gen Nano. It looks like Apple changed something in the filesystem itself.

    It reports as FAT32 and works with Windows 2000/XP and Linux, but Windows 98 says “drive not formatted”.

    In the begining I thought that the problem is the size of the drive – 160G is much more people could own in ’98, but the new Nano have the same problem.

    Could you please take a look at MBR, FAT and partition table of iPod Classic or new Nano and report what can be found there?
