with 'rss' tag

ben writes more about what sixapart is up to with the atom stream.

clearly sixapart is up to great evil, because they are not using rss and avoiding using the existing cloud and feedmesh names. i demand swift angry mob justice. i’ve even heard they have a special room in their new offices where they smash kittens with hammers.

blo.gs is less broken

the folks at yahoo did something to make blo.gs a little less broken. but some people’s blogs, like jeremy zawodny’s still show spurious updates. based on the info page for jeremy’s blog, i bet it is because it has decided that his comment feed is his main rss feed. which isn’t surprise, since that rss feed contains <link>http://jeremy.zawodny.com/blog/</link> in the <channel>.

it’s even worse when an entry gets hijacked by a feed that isn’t really the right one.

safari rss is sort of nifty, and i’ve been using it for my del.icio.us inbox and sploid.

one feature i really wish it had was some sort of visual indication of which items are the new ones.

announcing scraped.us

i finally got around to moving the feeds for the few sites i am still scraping to a dedicated domain, over at scraped.us. i also added atom versions of the feeds. the old feeds are redirected to the new ones.

there’s no special reason for this, other than it was annoying to process stats for this site because of all the noise from those feeds. now i can more easily isolate that traffic.
