WordPress Plug-in – Slashdot.org Headlines

Feeling sensitive and creative, I decided to try my hand at writing a plug-in for WordPress. I wrote a small, simple plug-in to parse Slashdot's RSS feed and return the top headlines. You can specify the number of headlines to return and whether or not to return the headline description with each headline. The headlines are returned as links, so you can click into them to link to Slashdot's full stories. It's a nice plug-in to throw into your sidebar (or wherever) -- after all, news for nerds is stuff that matters! Here's a sample of plug-in in action:
