This blog has problems.

  • BlogBuilder serves RSS feeds with the wrong MIME type. For someone who has a T-shirt about this issue, this is a big deal.
  • While in theory there is Atom publishing protocol support, in practice I don’t think it works – so I have no API for integrating my blog with the desktop.
  • The software running it is not free, so I have no way to submit patches for the above, or add features. Even if I could write the patches, I don’t control the server, so can’t apply them.
  • I suspect my login details expire in four weeks.

What to do, what to do.

    We’d be interested to hear about any problems you’re having with the Atom stuff, as the APP is notoriously difficult to test due to the lack of reliable clients.

    With regards to the last point, I hear you can un-expire your blog if you pay the WGA lots and lots of money. Having said that, I did that, but I still can’t log in. I’m too lazy to chase them up about it though.

  3. Sean: This handy post from this time last year suggests you might need to send an email as well.
