Another furball for Planet Xavier

MySpace recently added RSS feeds for blogs, so tonight I went ahead and told Planet to use a slew of those feeds for pX. (More on the MySpace feeds later today at Minh’s Notes.) As it turns out, those feeds are flawed in the same way Xanga’s feeds are: they don’t provide proper dates. For some reason, MySpace is reporting that every blog post ever authored there was published on Monday, January 1st, 1900, at exactly 3:00 in the morning EST.

Can you say… Y2K?

Thanks to this issue, all the old MySpace blog entries are showing up at the top. So I’m imploring everyone to get to work on their blogs: write! Post some entries – your schedule, your cat, anything – to push all those entries down the page. (And I worked so hard on the entry that ended up at the bottom, too.) Looks like I’ll have to toil to fix these feeds like I did with the Xanga feeds…

Problems at Planet Xavier once again

Yes, Planet Xavier coughed up a furball of old entries again. Please continue blogging, so that these old posts get pushed down the page. Thanks.
