Tons of new hints today!
Authored by: GEllenburg on May 12, '05 08:20:08AM

Rob,

GeekLog lets you specify an arbitrary number, or a time-period. So, why not just have the RSS feeds configured to show all new articles within the last 24 hours?

That way, if there's one hint posted within 24 hours then the RSS feed will only contain 1 entry and people like me and others who are relying more and more on the RSS feeds now that Safari includes a decent reader will know.

Also, it should save you some bandwidth for those times when you're out of town. No need in serving up an RSS feed for old articles (3 or 4 days old) when there aren't any new ones.

Just a thought.

I imagine newer versions of Geeklog probably have that feature. Mine, alas, does not -- it's a heavily tweaked version of 1.3.7 (security patches manually installed, basically).

Upgrading is a royal PitA, and I just haven't gotten around to it yet (and the Geeklog build number is a moving target; so I'd been waiting for it to stabilize, given how difficult an upgrade is for me to do).
