My new subscriptions harmonizer is ready for the next step in the bootstrap. I have a test server up and running and an aggregator-side implementation running in Radio UserLand on two of my computers, and so far it works! Praise Murphy. If you have two or more Radios, and have experience using the object database, please give it a try. But read the instructions carefully. It's an open protocol, other developers are welcome, and I have a section of the RFC ready to point to them when they come online. If you have comments or questions on the Harmonizer, please post them here. Thanks!

Brent Simmons: "There are people who bought NetNewsWire to edit their Blogger weblogs, and these people are far more important than my being pissed off at Blogger."
More sensible comments from Brent. +1.
Daniel Berlinger nails it twenty-five different ways.
Trademark Blog: Hormel sues Spam Arrest.
A Russian article about RSS. Wish I could read it!
News.Com: "An increasingly popular technique for preventing e-mail abuse is frustrating some visually impaired Net users, setting the stage for a conflict between spam busters and advocates for the disabled."
Randy Morin: "Why did the biggest proponent of funky RSS remove the funkiness from his RSS?"
Wired News: "No one mentioned in the book, however, actually works here now."
I added Chris Pirillo's Amazon RSS feeds to the Services sub-section of Feeds in my RSS directory.
Brent Simmons offers a couple of tips for Radio/Frontier programmers.
Here's the plan for the next couple of weeks. Tomorrow I'll be at work, but there will not be a Thursday meeting at Berkman because of the holiday. Then on Friday and Saturday there will be no updates on Scripting News. Swimming in the woods, listening to music, and beta-testing some new Levis. If all goes well, updates should resume on Sunday. Then on Wednesday the 9th I disappear for a week, once again no Thursday meeting. There may be intermittent updates during the week, maybe not. I'm going to be in California, cleaning up lots of loose ends, probably moving servers around (arrgh), seeing friends, and chilling out in the coool Bay breeze.
