As promised, I’ve done away with all but one of my RSS feeds for the main weblog. The RSS feed for kottke.org is located at http://www.kottke.org/index.xml (RSS 2.0 format, if that matters), contains all posts except the remaindered links (rl feed here), includes only a short excerpt of each post, and contains no HTML, not even links (except for the book posts).
You shouldn’t need to worry about this, but I’ve used Apache’s mod_alias module to automatically and permanently redirect your newsreader from the old feed URLs to the new location. You shouldn’t have noticed a thing (PulpFiction handled it like a champ). Apologies if your newsreader didn’t make the transition as smoothly as I intended it to…it probably doesn’t handle 301 redirects properly (i.e. it’s busted). If your newsreader didn’t handle it well, please update the RSS URL for kottke.org to http://www.kottke.org/index.xml. Thanks!
