Whilst doing programming work on the PBS Wiki I ended up visiting  pages 
haphazardly and it occurred to me how many beautiful photographs I had 
never seen.

This experience inspired me to create a new page:


which displays ten random entries from the PBS Wiki and is updated 

Obviously you can bookmark the page and visit it when you like. However 
it is also possible to subscribe to it as an RSS feed:


so that the page comes to you.

For example if you have iGoogle as your web browser home page you can 
incorporate the PBS Wiki Bulb Day RSS feed into it.

Users of MicroSoft Internet Explorer 8, can add Bulb Day as a "web 
slice" to their favourites bar - just visit the Bulb Day page and look 
for the green web slice icons.

The RSS feed can be used as a "photo feed" for programs like picture 
frames. For example if you have the Google Photos Screensaver you can 
have a selection of PBS wiki photos as your screen saver.

As well as being pleasing to the eye this page may also be a useful way 
of learning about bulbs.
