Oxite: what’s new and how to stay up to date with it

As probably you read somewhere else, a few days ago the Channel9 team released the latest version of Oxite. If you remember, when it was first released back in December, there was a lot of negative feedbacks, but now it seems like the latest release contains a lot of refactoring. I think I’ll start to play with it. All the team members have a blog (which runs on Oxite, of course) and they posted some blog posts to explain the new changes. Duncan Mackenzie, which is the PM, wrote a post explaining the PR...

Images hosted on Webhost4Life are not displayed inside RSS feeds

A month ago, when I first updated my blog to Subtext 2.0, a reader commented that: Images embedded in RSS are not correctly linked I thought it was due to some problems with the new version of WLW I had just installed. But the link were written with the full absolute url, so that couldn’t be the problem. Then I thought that it was due to FeedBurner that decided to do something strange with my urls, but that was not the case either. A few days ago, while I was testing the RSS...

Testing RSS advertising

If you subscribed to my blog through an RSS reader you will notice an advertisement at the bottom of this post. That’s because I’m testing the RSS Room of the The Lounge advertising network: it’s creator James Avery unveiled the RSS Room it only a few days ago and in the next weeks it will be a test period and will show only Lounge related ads. For people that are reading this post from my blog, here is how it appears on the RSS reader: I’m still tuning it in order to be less...

The Panic Button

I use FeedDemon as my desktop newsreader and today, while looking around the UI I found a strange menu item: "Hit the Panic Button!". The button doesn't have the "..." that usually marks menu items that open a new dialog before doing something, so it frightened me a bit. But I finally decided to click on it and a dialog appeared: It's a really interesting feature: when you go on vacations and you come back and see 10k unread items, you just hit the Panic Button, and you are back to only...

Feedburner kills all-time stats... no, wait, it was only an error

This weekend, while checking my RSS stats on FeedBurner I noticed that the "all time" option of RSS subscribers was gone. This thing raised a nest of hornets, with some bloggers accusing Google not to communicate with users, other looking for alternatives, and yet other offering hacks to download the historical data. The official forum was full of people asking for an explanation since last Saturday. On Monday Steve Olechowski, Product Manager of FeedBurner, posted a comment saying it was a bug and would have been fixed in the next code update, and the same was done on...
