Spent some time tonight getting the Atom feed working again with my blog; it was pretty annoying because the terminology around field names and semantics for RSS and Atom differ a lot, and also the Atom library I decided to use in Go is underdocumented in places. Still, I think the Atom feed back then was more prominent and so it was important to replace it before clients timed out. Got it, and I set up an apache redirect rule to get the old clients plumbed to the right place. Feeling good about it.

It's taking me some getting used to to have this outlet again; for a long while I just had G+, and it didn't encourage casual talking about whatever. I guess there was twitter, but even now the brevity doesn't work so well for me.
