RSS - no solution, but a workaround
It's happened before, and, no doubt, it'll happen again: the old short cut, going north to go south, round the houses: as I've pointed out before, we're still very much in the get out and get under era of the internet.
My apologies for testing the patience of RSS readers - but I can at least now offer a return to normalcy. Pretty much.
The new RSS/XML link you see to your left (as the tour guides say) is the Blogstreet link. Which works in my AmphetaDesk, so I suspect should work in most newsreaders.
There is a slight problem with the Blogstreet feeds: they don't update automatically - you  have to go over to the Blogstreet site and give the thing a kick. Metaphorically speaking.
This time, it's not just me, and has nothing to do with Atom. That I can see.
So that's what I'll have to do. Annoyance, yes; but a couple of minutes a go, so doable.
However, if I forget, the RSS copy and HTML copy will be different. I thought I should explain.
As for the not so mighty Atom, I suspect it's probably at the same stage of development as the helicopter - in the notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci...
