About Me:
I maintain a weekly podcast called Latin & Greek: Listen and Learn. Its main purpose right now is to help students increase their Latin vocabulary by using their iPods. (The Greek will come later.) The podcast can be found in various podcast directories, but most notably on iTunes. If you like what you hear and think it could help your students increase their vocabulary, you can help spread the word by becoming a fan of the podcast on Facebook. You can help also by writing a favorable review of the podcast on iTunes. Thanks for your support.

Hi Fletcher! I didn't know about your podcasts until I came here to your page - super! I will subscribe!

Meanwhile, as for a searchable widget, that would be more than a tweak, because all the RotateContent.com tool does is to take an HTML table, turn it into an array, and then either return a random item in the array, or an item whose date matches the system date. The javascript itself is very simple, which you can see if you look directly at one of the js files - the hard work that the tool does is taking the HTML table and turning it into a valid array, but after that, the script itself is super simple.

Have you played around with YahooPipes? I haven't done anything fancy with it, but it does seem to have the ability to generate nice web applications that process data in creative ways, and I'm sure processing a data set with some kind of user input is a YahooPipes possibility - but don't quote me on that! I played around with it as a tool for combining RSS feeds, and it was awesome, and I remember that it would take many other forms of data input, not just the RSS XML file. Here are the notes I had written up about that:
