Better RSS on the Dot, Travel

So my last rant basically made me the dot maintainer. Oh well. Now, as the first official act I added a description tag to the RSS feed of the dot. That means that everyone can now read stories with his RSS reader, and without being disturbed by the comments. It also means that the dot can now be aggregated on the planet (hello clee *hint,hint*!).

The second good news is that throughout this day, I finally got an understanding on how Squishdot stores its articles and it should be rather easy to import all stories and even all the comments into a new system, for which we currently prefer WordPress, although no final decision has been made.

From tomorrow on, I’ll be in Espoo, Finland to attend a european exchange programme at EVTEK university for two weeks. In case of emergencies, please refer to dhaumann for any techbase issues, while sebas is your main for technical issues with the dot. I should however be well in touch with the world during the next two weeks, but who knows.

    And a word of advice, if sodexho is still makeing the food, remember to keep chili sauce at hand to make food eatable ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Interestingly, I just brought up renovating the dot on kde-www. I’m personally a Drupal kind of guy and that’s partially because I was able to mostly reconstruct the current dot in about an hour ( But, I’m completely open to helping out and changing things. It would be nice to see the dot shine.

  5. Awesome stuff! Will the Flat Forty also be making a re-appearance? It seems to have stalled for the last day or so.

  6. Seconded. It’s odd having flatforty stalling like this as it’s usually a great way to check for the latest discussions at dot.

  7. Greetings from Espoo, Finnland, close to Helsinki (Hello Andreas!). We arrived yesterday evening and so far all things are nice. EVTEK welcomed us warmly, and we had a grat first day, including a sightseeing tour to downtown Helsinki. I also survived the
