I am the ghost of groovymother.com. Woooooo!

This is an old page from Rod Begbie's blog.

It only exists in an attempt to prevent linkrot. No new content will be added to this site, and links and images are liable to be broken. Check out begbie.com to find where I'm posting stuff these days.

My Atom feeds now conform to RFC 4287. They’ve actually been ready since the “proposed standard” document was published nearly nine months ago, but I’ve held off switching over to them until most feedreaders supported it. Where “most” in my mind was defined as Bloglines.

Unfortunately, Bloglines still borks over some of it, and is barely maintained these days. But most sane feedreaders (like those whacky kids in Redmond) are now well up to speed, so the switch has been thrown. Enjoy my curly quotation marks in all their unambiguous glory!

My old Atom 0.3 feed will continue to be published at http://groovymother.com/atom03.xml. Feel free to use it if Atom 1.0 is out of your reach. It’ll probably drop down in features (such as <content>) in a few months time as I try to retire it (like I did to RSS two years ago(groovy mother :: Good(?) Housekeeping))

Any problems, do please let me know.
