Bloody RSS Feeds!

28th November 2006

Quick heads-up, as they say. My main (RSS 2.0) RSS feed appears to be kaput - or, it is in Bloglines at least. I think the Atom one is OK, but if you don’t mind, could you please upgrade your RSS 2.0 feed to the colly.com version and ditch the collylogic.com version? Thank you, and sorry, but you wouldn’t wanna miss my major news to come later this week, now would you?

NewsFire picked this post up ok. Been using colly.com for feeds since Friday instead of old address.

I did get a few double entries earlier today of stuff I’d already read.

Hope thats nugget of information helps.

Also, I think this is my first post here. Very good blog, keep up the good work. Another also, I bought your book which is also very good.

If you say also enough times it sounds like the name of a table sauce.

Oops. Didn’t mean to turn comments on, but I’m glad I did, as feedback on this is useful actually.

I think the main problem is for those using feeds from collylogic.com - some issue for the RSS 2.0 feed, yet the others seem fine.

Maybe it is just bloody Bloglines.

Thanks, Jon…

Whoa… not sure what the previous owners of your domain were up to before, but apparently colly.com is on our company\‘s network firewall list of blocked sites!

# Donald responded on 28th November 2006 with...

Maybe just angry system administrator has blocked it? Because of waste of time of the workers

# Simon Collison responded on 28th November 2006 with...

Hmm - seems to be working in Bloglines again now. Maybe it was a lucky ping…

@David, no the colly.com domain was associated with a porn network and darkestweb.com for the last 5 years[1].  There\‘s evidence[2] that the domain was associated with a ton of porn sites a few years back.

It must have just gotten added to a central prefab firewall blacklist that the sysadmin downloaded from somewhere.

It’s good idea to try to remove colly.com from this blacklist as it’s not associated with a porn network anymore :)
