One ring to rule them all

I am in the process of trying to simplify my life a little. That has seen me leaving Daily Mile (I think the site was dying anyway), and removing Facebook from my iPhone.

In conjunction with that, I am trying to automate some process, such as when I blog here, I want it to be tweeted out, and (eventually) posted to Facebook.

The first problem was trying to get my RSS feed to be clean; well, to get past the W3C RSS validator. This took a little bit of tweaking some source files. E.g., and changing:

handler.addQuickElement("guid", item['unique_id'])


handler.addQuickElement('guid', item['unique_id'], attrs={"isPermaLink": "false"})

That fixed a problem with Pelican's GUIDs, but I could not get the RSS feed to be accepted by (the service I am trying to use to propagate my posts). So, I switched to using atom.xml. That sees to be okay.

This will be the first post that should be tweeted out for me. Let's see what happens.

If you webmention this page, please let me know the URL of your page.

BTW: Your webmention won't show up until I next "build" my site.
