About this site's lack of design: Yes, it's supposed to look this way — I'm using a sandbox theme for WordPress (see it on GitHub).

How To Feed

Newsfeeds (sometimes referenced by their formats, such as RSS or Atom) allow you, the reader, to access the content of this site (or any other providing a ‘feed’) via a program called a newsreader, without having to deal with all the nasty, ugly visual elements of the design–ok, I know this is a really lame explanation of feeds, but I’ve spent literally minutes attempting to write something better than Dave Shea’s description of rss syndication, and since I can’t, well, there you have it.

Soupe du Jour of the Day

At present, our menu features the following delicacies (imported fresh, daily):

Primary Feeds: Full Text | Comments

Secondary Feeds: Ephemera | Blogroll

Simply clicking one of these links will open the feed in your newsreader of choice.

Reading Lessons

Need a newsreader? No problem–just check out one of these fine hyperlinks: NetNewsWire (Mac), FeedDemon (PC), or for you “web-application-lovers” (I just know there’s an alt.web.2.0.application.sex.ducttape.gerbils on some newsgroup server somewhere…), try BlogLines or NewsGator Online.
