[UPDATE, 3.20 pm: So it appears that my regular RSS feed is hung up on something, but I’m not sure what; the XML appears fine, and the feed validates. If you’re subscribed to that feed and haven’t received any updates since January 2, you may want to switch your subscription to the Atom feed, which readers seem to accept just fine. I’ll keep poking at the RSS and see if I can get that problem solved, in the meantime.]
This is a post designed to see if I’ve managed to unbreak my RSS feed, such that Google Reader and other modes of subscribing to this blog will once again update. Cross your fingers for me.
