RSS Feed Update And Other House Cleaning

To those of you who subscribe to the RSS feed of this website, I just rolled out an improved feed, so you may want to update your RSS reader. The new URL is

The new feed is in RSS 2.0 format. I switched it over from Atom because I’m old school and no one does that. All of the downsides are on my end, and you’ll never notice, so don’t sweat it.

I’m also finally syndicating full articles. I had intended to do this years ago, but never got around to it. Due to the way the website handles images and multimedia, these things will not appear in the feed until I have the time to work them in separately.

The main reason I finally got around to doing this was to fix a bug where articles scheduled to publish in the future, would publish immediately to the RSS feed. This caused articles with broken links to show up in your feed. Sorry about that.

The old Atom feed also received this bug fix, but it is no longer linked in the head of the website. I’ll probably keep it around for a while, though.

Lastly, your connection to is now encrypted. Welcome to the 21st century!
