Help Request: Important.
Okay. I have a mission for anyone who has the desire to figure it out:
I've been wanting for quite some time to put an RSS feed on the New Dawn Rising
site, so that people can get a [fairly] live update on changes, news, details, Mission-relevant subjects. What I really
want is an RSS feed compatible with livejournal, like, blogthings
[first example I could think of] or, a little more relevantly, gibsonfeed
: that way, whoever was on LJ and wanted to stay 'connected' to the site news could simply subscribe to the feed, and they wouldn't even have to say anything if they didn't want to: I think we might draw in more redpills if they're offered the chance to just stay quiet for a bit... watch, listen, and learn, and decide for themselves whether or not they really want to take that next step.
The problem is, with all the
hours I spend here working, I haven't quite gotten the hang of figuring out where to get a feed that would work. I've tried several generators, with lousy results. [I also have several bookmarked, but haven't had a chance to sort everything
out yet: I'm trying to do everything.] So, my challenge/mission: can someone search around and find a way to implement a site/blog RSS feed, preferably compatible with Livejournal, that I can maintain and administrate from the site: and, ten thousand bonus points if there isn't a subscription fee involved: i.e., a free utility.
Seeing as how I expect a check from this client by the end of the month, paying isn't an impossible
thing: but this needs to be done as immediately as possible, and a free feed won't bring with it the necessity of maintaining, in case I'm unable to be there to keep up with the financing.

You humans have literally...fucked up your planet – and now it strikes back. Like Asia. And you think of Zion. Moving humans from an outside of the cylinder to the inside of the cylinder. Great plan. Liberation indeed.

Pay Attention To This
There is much to say today. To start with, I would ask you all to look at Neo and remember who he is and what he does for all of us. What he has sacrificed for our sakes. Now, with this reminder tumbling through your minds, I want you to be on you respective messengers today to speak to him. Where the hell has everyone benn this last week? Does it seem unlike myself for me to say that my love and belief is not enough? He needs us...ALL of us.
Maybe it's because we haven't been setting tasks for everyone. But the comm has been dead and I'm not going to let us all fall apart. Not now that I know you are all here....Now that I KNOW that you believe. Neo says that our people don't believe in HIM, they believe in TRUTH. He says that's not wrong. But still people, a little ego stroking is always nice. And I know for a fact that some of you do believe very strongly in him. *looks to the newbies* Guys, I'm counting on you to help me support him. He NEEDS us. Please help me.
There are three in particular. Smith, Mouse and Mara. Here's what I want from the three of you.
Smith, you need to stop yo-yoing. I know that all these revelations on your part have changed the way you see and do things, but until you get ONE OPINION that you can stick with, stop trying to brush thought of the day off on Neo. What he needed last night was solidarity in who he is, not peace and light and to be told that he can't save everyone. I know he can. And so do you.
Mouse, sweet, dear little brother boy. Where are you? You've been on but haven't spoken to us. We need you now. You were the first for him. The first person that he was close to after being freed from the Matrix. The only one of our crew, save myself, that we've found so far. Come back to us. Tonight if you can, ok? And there was something you talked about doing for Neo, a certian something you promised to get everyone's help with. That's your promise Mouse. It can't come from me.
Mara, you give great advice and you're really good at jump starting his groundation. He needs that right now. He said that you always did a good job of performing shock therapy on him. Break out the tools of the trade...It was your duty before anyhow. Helping people through times like these. It's time for you to pick it up. We need those skills now.
I have nothing more to say right now.I won't give any death threats, no angry shouting, which should really scare those of you who know me well. I think I've said enough and now it's time for you all to do some of the work. I understand that you all have things to do, but this is not secondary to that. This is his life, my life and all of our lives together. As part of it you all need to contribute.

I want to hear about the final encounter between you two: Smith and Neo.
I want to know what it was like, at the end, for both of you.

*nods to the assembly* Neo had a rather large ephiny this evening while we were on the phone. He thinks that this world, the physical one that we all currently share, may be an amalgamation of the Matrix and the Real. Neo reaches this conclusion after preforming a simple experiment, in which he blindfolded himself and walked through his darkened house. Considering the labyrinth of STUFF that Neo has strewn everywhere, coupled by the fact that he hasn't lived in the house for a full year yet, would make him not walking into anything seem like a miracle. But it wasn't what he managed to do, it was how he did it. Even with his eyes covered, and with no light to guide him, Neo could still SEE the house. He could feel the objects in his mind. He said it was like there was a weighted darkness where the objects should be.
From my own experiences, I know the difference between seeing a place in your mind because you have it memorized and SEEING if with a SEEING GIFT of some sort.
I thought about this for a few minutes, and am inclined to agree with Neo's conclusion. The combination of physical and metaphysical features here would point to this reality being a hybrid of two such worlds.
Now, I would very much like everyone to come up with some evidence that supports this theory. Examples even of occurrences where the metaphysics of the Matrix have manifested themselves here.
Thank you everyone.

Alright team, it's time to huddle up! Neo's off for the evening, in bed with the fucking super flu that he's been holding out against for the last three days.
I talked to him for a few hours on the phone, and this is what he would like us all to do. Many of us have downloaded Gnosis onto our own computers, and are now capable of copying it onto disks. If you all could do even a few copies each, it would be great. Gack the 'Hack The Truth' graphic from his LJ's info page, print it up and use it as an insert.
He's working on getting the game packages in order so that he can distribute them at the college, but we all know that's not enough. We need to get it out to a larger body of people, and that would be much easier if we could all distribute copies of the game in our own respective areas.
That's all there is for now. If you have any questions, please leave a comment and I'll answer them as soon as I receive them.
Thank you everyone.

Hack the truth and free your mind!
This is a very cool idea that Neo and I came up with. He came up with the catch phrase 'Hack The Truth' yesterday, and many people agree that they liked it, that it was catchy and that they would buy shit with that printed on it. It reminds me of the 'Think God' catch phrase from that movie 'Oh God'. It's a simple thing that gets the point across and makes people think.
SO here's the link to the store, for those of you who are interested. The meager proceeds made (about $2.00 per major item) will keep command central in blank cds for the game and other such things.

Smith, seeing as how you are the only non-human intelligence to have lived in Zion, for however brief a time, I would like to hear your perspective on it, and do you have any of Bane's memories?
The other day I was with a baby and I started to sing a lullaby that I heard in Zion, but when I started to sing it the thought crept into my mind that it would be weird to sing a song from Zion that no one has heard here, and then I completely forgot the song. Do any of you remember hearing any songs in Zion?
I fear that blocking my empathic abilities here may have caused me to not get complete memories from the other world. Besides my dreams, I've had strong feelings and glimpses of Zion and Niobe. I am going to try to reach the level of ability that I had in hopes that I will be able to remember more, though I doubt it will be easy.

The Evening Report....
*sits cross legged on the deck* Ok, to the obvious. Neo's not here for several reasons. The first of which being that he can't sit comfortable in his computer chair right now. It's not padded and his ass is a little tender. *snerk* He went 36 hours without sleep or anything proper to eat. He's going a thousand different directions because he's so sleep deprived. He told me to ask the crew to disregard anything he says when he's gone so long without rest. Which will not happen again any time soon! Right Neo!? *glares toward the east* Grrr! *reigns in scary!Trinity beast*
The secondary reason for him not being here is that he needed to unplug for a bit. He's had some major revelations over the last day and night. Things are crossing over. Energy does follow thought and he and Smith had a rather serious talk last night. I can't go into it, as I only know what was said in their LJ commentary. For more details...see both of their journals.
Lastly, and this part comes from me. Neo wouldn't ask a drop of water from Niagara falls if he was dying of dehydration...I ask you all to remember the offers you made him. Now is the time for us to pull some of the weight of this off of his shoulders. There are things that we could be doing. Parts that we could all be playing in this. I'm here every night. I help him with whatever I can. But it's not enough. He may be TEH ONE, but he is human and so am I. He has worked himself into a state of constant exhaustion and his body is at the breaking point and it's overloading his mind. Even the smallest things seem like the Mount Everest of all issues because he doesn't give himself enough time to let his brain process...and now shit is getting backed up! It's like what happens when I try to use the electric skillet and the microwave at the same time...it blows a fuse in the kitchen that shuts everything down for a while. We can't let him overload. He NEEDS us NOW!
*sits up a little* So, now would be the time for those of you who can commit to helping to come forward and tell us what you're good at and what you feel you can do. Even if you think it's a small thing, it may be of more help than you know.
*takes in deep breath and starts Ti Che exercises*
Thank you everyone.

*cracks knuckles and looks around for Neo* I told him I would do this, and maybe he didn't believe me. He will by GOD know I wasn't kidding after this! The little punk wasn't in bed on time last night. We got off the phone at 2:40 his time. He should have gone straight to bed but NO! He got his ass back online and wrote me a huge ass email and then probably worked for a while before dragging himself to his bunk with his last reserves of strength!
Neo! You had better listen to me boy! Remember what you said you'd do to me if you reached 50 last night? About what you'd do if I didn't stop talking in a whisper? (pictures an open doorway to make it absolutly clear) Just imagine that going down here! I don't think you want that, do you? You made me a PROMISE and I EXPECT you to keep it or else I will bring this in here in front of our people. AM I UNDERSTOOD?! I better be. Consider this your ONE warning!
*takes deep, cleansing breath* Now that that has been said. I'm gonna go read his LJ to see what lame reasons he had for being up so late. Current Mood: accomplished
