The Chernobyl Story [Updated & Expanded] – Album on Imgur

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/01/16

From the author of [WayBack] The Chernobyl Story [Updated & Expanded] – Album on Imgur:

I’ve assembled this collection of images surrounding the Chernobyl nuclear disaster to help people gain a better understanding of what happened. It is a very brief, but complete(ish) retelling of what happened, using edited text from a book I’ve written called “Chernobyl 01:23:40”. The book can be bought from Amazon, if anyone’s interested.

The book is even more impressive: “Chernobyl 01:23:40”

Since there is no RSS link  on the page [WayBackDave’s Development Blog – Software Development using Borland / Codegear / Embarcadero RAD Studio

Since I wanted to follow his “blog” (which is sort of a collection of WordPress pages, mainly about the programming OTA: the Open Tools API interface to Delphi and C++ Builder), I was looking for the RSS feed.

Luckily, Feedly knows how to detect most blogging platforms, so it came up with which indicates the final bit is the RSS feed URL.
