Okay, beta version of my RSS feed is now available. I've tested it a bit with bloglines and my yahoo!'s new RSS module, and they seem to deal reasonably well with it (though not exactly the same as each other). Let me know what RSS aggregator you're using and how well my feed works there.

Eventually, I'm planning to extend this so you'll be able to subscribe to a feed for the whole site, or a feed for individual sections of the site, or even a feed for each entry, with comments appearing as new items in the feed.

I might also rig up something so you can sign up to receive email notifications of new posts.

I think that's because that's the time at which LJ first checked the feed (because you told it to), and so it considers them all to have been posted at that time. Which of course means that at the moment your LJ friends page is full of me, but in a day or two, they'll be buried and it'll be useful the way it should be.

In fact, now that LJ knows about it, I wonder whether non-paid accounts can also subscribe to "neilfredblogsyn"...

Do you have any idea why LJ is having trouble parsing your RSS these day?

Last checked: 2004-12-10 14:32:00 (Parse error) Error Message: RSS parser error: not well-formed (invalid token) at line 76, column 19, byte 4248 Next check: 2004-12-10 17:33:00

Thanks for pointing that out to me! I had an ampersand character unescaped in there. Hopefully I've fixed it now...
