Sundown

Key West Sunset

After nearly 10 years, I've now left Sun. Thanks to everyone for following my blog for all these years. Please follow my new blog, Wild Webmink, where I have posted a career retrospective.

Blog Moved

A reminder: If you are following me here on blogs.sun.com, please change your bookmarks and feeds to read http://webmink.com instead, as I have moved all my blogging there. I'll be turning of the daily link posts early next week. There are several new posts on the new site, especially on ACTA, so you really do want to move!

Blogger Downgrade

If you're a subscriber to my Daily Mink aggregator you may notice that stuff from my personal blog is not showing up. The reason is that I foolishly accepted Google's offer to "upgrade" to the new version of Blogger, which I use to maintain that blog. The change invovled associating my GMail account with my Blogger account, and the opening screen assured me that "nothing will change" in my blogs. Except, of course, they have dropped legacy RSS support, and even the cute workaround (a parameter on the feed URI) doesn't seem to work for blogs published via FTP.

Now, it wouldn't be so bad that they only had Atom support - after all, that's a modern and progressing standard - if it wasn't for the fact that the version of Planet Roller that I'm using believes there's an XML error in the feed. That makes it skip the Webmink feed altogether when building Daily Mink. I have no idea what the problem is right now - Dave is kindly building a fresh version of Planet Roller for me - but the effect is that my aggregator is missing entries. Apologies.

Update: With huge thanks to Dave Johnson, the Daily Mink is now working properly again using the new BlogApps.

Update 2: Dave provides details in a posting about proposed new features to the Planet tool.
