Rob Sayre points out that this blog still doesn’t show a preference for Atom, embarrassingly enough.

I know that at one point I had a transition plan, and started by generating an Atom feed alongside the RSS, but I never completed the switch. Oops.

So, at his prodding, I just finished the changeover, making all of the feeds on this site Atom. Note that some that I point to elsewhere are still RSS, and since it’s late and I’ve been sick today, they may not be perfect, although the Feed Validator says they’re in the ballpark. The old RSS feeds now redirect to the Atom, so it should be seamless, unless you’re using a very old reader.

As far as the problem he points out with Google Reader — looks like it’s still a problem, and I don’t think it’s on my side…
