Site goes atomic!

Sunday, July 30, 2006

The web site now provides Atom feeds of news posts. Which means you can keep up-to-date with your favourite feed reader, instead of checking here every 5 minutes in case I've updated.

That's how I keep track of friends' blogs (Sarah Ternoway, Marcus Walker, Dominic Major), and also many of the web sites and web comics I regularly visit. It's pretty sweet, really.

Atom feeds like to have permalinks to the entries, which I was planning to do anyway. After all, if you want to refer to the "Site goes atomic!" post in 5 months' time, it's unlikely to still be on the "News" page. But if you use the permalink, it should still work.
