If you wish to build a site with tons of information in a matter of minutes, you can do so by using any good autoblogging tool that can pull data from different sources and post the feed in multiple categories as you want.

WP-O-Matic is one such tool that makes autoblogging a snap by automatically creating posts from the RSS/Atom feeds you choose, which are organized into campaigns.

WP-o-Matic aims to provide a very wide range of features. Currently, these are:

  • Campaigs Feeds and all settings and options are now organized into campaigns for the perfect organization and comfort.
  • Multiple feeds / categories: it’s possible to add as many feeds as you want, and add them to as many categories as you want. It’s not obstrusive, so you can also write your own posts to any of those categories.
  • Every form of XML syndication supported. This includes RSS 0.91 and RSS 1.0 formats, the popular RSS 2.0 format, and the emerging Atom.
  • Feed autodiscovery, which lets you add feeds without even knowing the exact URL. (Thanks Simplepie!)
  • Unix cron and WordPress cron jobs For maximum performance, you can make the RSS fetching process be called by a Unix cron job, or simply let WordPress handle it.
  • Comfortable interface. The admin is powered by a state of the art ajaxy interface that lets you handle your feeds with ease. Updated!
  • Images caching for extreme performance and hotlinking bypassing.
  • Words Rewriting. Want to replace the word “Poker” with “Texas Holdem”? We have it covered. Want to use regular expressions? We have it covered.
  • Words Relinking. Define custom links for words you specify.
  • Post templating. Define a global header and footer for the posts, or even for a specific feed. Add ads
  • Campaigns import/export using OPML files. Easily import hundreds of feeds into new or existing campaigns!

The software is still beta and has a few issues but you should be able to work around them.

PC games are created by one or more game developers, often in conjunction with other specialists (such as game artists) and either published independently or through a third party publisher. They may then be distributed on physical media such as DVDs and CDs, as Internet-downloadable shareware, or through online delivery services such as Direct2Drive and Steam. PC games often require specialized hardware in the user’s computer in order to play, such as a specific generation of graphics processing unit or an Internet connection for online play, although these system requirements vary from game to game.


PC Gaming is often the subject of criticism, focusing largely on the influence of objectionable content and prolonged gameplay on minors. However, the market of PC games continues to grow at an unbelievable pace. Asia is dominating the consumption of online video games, responsible for nearly half of the worldwide revenues.

according to a new report from the PC Gaming Alliance, 2007 was a banner year for gaming revenues. Online PC gaming revenue led the way in 2007 with $4.8 billion, nearly double the worldwide retail sales numbers for PC games.

Digital distribution sales approached $2 billion, while advertising revenues from websites, portals, and in-game ads accounted for $800 million. Both are expected to grow substantially as major developers and publishers begin to adopt formal strategies to take advantage of new online opportunities.

The reason behind this weedy growth has been the rapid penetration of broadband-connected PCs in all markets around the world. Broadband-connected PCs are a key driver of growth for PC gaming worldwide.
