Way back when I'd just converted this site from static to dynamic (PHP+MySQL) MK was hassling me about adding an RSS feed as well. At the time I didn't have enough spare time to start learning about syndication, but I did this afternoon :) And MK was right: it only took me about an hour to hack together the code for the feed.
So... Your browser should have alerted you of the RSS feed (e.g. Safari shows an RSS icon in the address bar) and as far as I know basic functionality is up and running. Now I need to find a nice way to fix the layout of the feed contents. For some reason line-breaks are ignored and I haven't thought of a nice way to include graphics.
It's not that I seriously expect anyone to subscribe to my feed. Let's just call it an exercise in IT and web design.
I'm also finally coming through on my promise of moving other parts of the site into MySQL. The Sysadmin blog posts are in the DB now as well, which means that they will get included in both the RSS feed and the Archives. Naturally this required me to make a number of changes to the code, which's been educational as well.
