- Site Moving, Or What's New Ending Soon
This site's "what's new" information feed is served by Blogger. As Blogger is discontinuing their FTP publishing service, that will no longer work. I have not yet decided whether to:
Switching from Blogger to another blogging tool is not an option: I like Blogger quite a lot and have been using it for other sites.
- Discontinue the "what's new" feed (which was really just a slow trickle).
- Migrate the site to gisdeveloper.blogspot.com (which would break links and require changes to the site structure but would also get rid of the Tripod's annoying popups and banners).
- Change to a "pull" model to bring the Atom feed from BlogSpot into the Tripod page. This could involve client-side AJAX but is more likely to be supported by server-side Perl code so that updates can be cached.
