I miss people offering easy to find feed links. Recently I've been building up my blogroll again (remember those?) and for lack of a better place I stuck it on the bottom of my home page. And for each one, I have a direct link to the RSS or Atom feed.
After your feed had been...err..."incinerated", it would work okay in a basic reader (sometimes), but god help you if you needed to do anything beyond displaying the basic text of the most recent articles.
Now that it's on EOL... (shivers)
And yeah, I still use RSS/Atom a lot.
A shame... a few other interesting articles on that blog but, for some reason, those pages don't play well on my current setup... Will have to try again on my other machine (at some point).
