logistical interruption

Sorry that I’m throwing myself at the mercy of everyone, but I’m having a bit of trouble with my RSS feed; it seems to work ok in Bloglines and Google Reader, but not in other applications (I’m trying to get the feed to work with Twitter, so that Twitter gets pinged with the URL whenever I post). The Twitterfeed application doesn’t seem to recognize the feed, and indeed, when I click on the feed listed on the right-hand column, it shows up as a blank document. BUT it seems to be working ok in the aforementioned Bloglines, etc. So what gives? (I have a really old version of WordPress, which might be the culprit; everytime I try to figure out how to upgrade, I become stymied!)

Riveting stuff, I know.

Twitter is one of those applications which I haven’t quite wrapped my head around, in terms of its life utility. But I will have a gander at it.

    Susan observed the other day that Twitter is actually a giant, asynchronous group chat. Which hasn’t been my experience with it thus far, but I can see how it could, maybe, potentially work that way….

    For a while I thought that Twitter was a nightmarish idea b/c it would cause ADD and world hunger. Then I realized that these things are all ready extant. This insight plus brain damage due to excessive bike riding made me embrace this.
