Site Update

I finally noticed that you can edit the rdf template in movabletype, and I’ve done so. Now all you RSS feed-readers (‘sup Peter) will see the full entry in your rdf reader. I’ve also tweaked my image-publishing template, so in the feed the caption appears directly under the image size options instead of way below. This will only apply to future entries, as I’m not going to tweak the html of all my previous entries.

For people wondering what the heck RSS feed readers and rdf are, they are programs that download blog entries from many different sites and display them in one window so you don’t have to load twenty web pages to read everything.

I use Straw, which of course is linux-only. Under windows, I really don’t know what’s good. There’s a plugin for mozilla called NewsMonster that is popular with some people, but I like the lightweight nature of a separate program. I just stumbled across a list of more rss readers than I ever knew existed.

Using straw’s export feature, I’ve created a little file that lists all my subscriptions. I’m not sure if any other program can read this file, but here’s hoping!
