Syndication / RSS stuff

First off, if you currently run a news aggregator, check to see if you're running the most up to date version. It has been pointed out in several places that a lot of aggregators have not been doing the right thing bandwidth-wise (namely, using the built-in features of the HTTP spec to reduce bandwidth when requesting content that hasn't changed.) The latest betas of Netnewswire Lite and Userland Radio now implement the appropriate HTTP request mechanisms, and I'm sure other aggregators will be revised to do the same soon.

Secondly, there's now a spiffy new RSS validator. Though my HTML is still a shambling wreck, my RSS feed glides on the wings of validity.

YOU TOO CAN MAKE BIG MONEY IN THE EXCITING FIELD OF PAPER SHUFFLING!

Mr. Smith of Muddle, Mass. says: “Before I took this course I used to be
a lowly bit twiddler. Now with what I learned at MIT Tech I feel really
important and can obfuscate and confuse with the best.”

Mr. Watkins had this to say: “Ten short days ago all I could look forward
to was a dead-end job as a engineer. Now I have a promising future and
make really big Zorkmids.”

MIT Tech can’t promise these fantastic results to everyone, but when
you earn your MDL degree from MIT Tech your future will be brighter.
