Let's back that up

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

I've temporarily reverted my site news feed back to the old RSS format (which stands either for Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary, depending on whom you talk to), because right now many reader programs, such as the fabulous NetNewsWire, don't yet support the Atom format I recently switched to.

There is no easy way for Blogger to support both RSS and Atom, so I've stuck with the older, more widely supported format for now. Noel's solution might be a workable way to have both simultaneously, if I put some effort into it, since it can create an old-style RSS feed while Blogger continues to create the Atom feed.

If you don't care about the technicalities, all this means more of you should be able to continue reading this weblog in a feed reader instead of a web browser.

By the way, there's a surprising amount of controversy about these syndication formats.
