[Reminder] New MacManX.com Blog URL

Dear friends, eleven days ago, I surprised all of you by abruptly changing my blog’s directory from /wordpress/ to /. Hopefully, with this generic / directory, I’ll never have to do that again. If you have not had a chance to change your subscriptions to https://macmanx.com/feed/ and links to https://macmanx.com/, please do so at your earliest possible convenience, and please let me know if you encounter any errors. Thanks!

P.S. Thank you very much for taking time out of your day to read MacManX.com.

Appreciation of Recent Affiliate Purchases

It has recently come to my attention that one or more individuals, other than myself, have made a few purchases through the affiliate links in my sidebar. I would just like to let you, whoever you are, know that it has not gone unnoticed and that I really appreciate the contributions that you have made towards MacManX.com’s hosting bills. Thank you.

Full Content Feeds and Hotlink Protection

Due to an overwhelming response of one to zero, MacManX.com’s RSS and Atom feeds are now presented in full XML glory with a little bit of added copyright protection spice from Angsuman’s Feed Copyrighter Plugin. As these new full content feeds will allow my content to be “re-blogged” by certain content-stealing sites, I have taken a more robust approach to hotlink protection. All approved domains will be able to display images from my feed and follow links to my media files, but all other will simply display broken images and trigger 403 (Access Denied) errors when attempting to link to my media files. Regular news aggregators are not affected by this, but online news aggregators are. The current approved domains are MacManX.com (of course), bloglines.com, newsgator.com, and rojo.com. If you are reading this post in your news aggregator and cannot view the image below, please contact me via the comments section or email, and I will attempt to approve your aggregator. Thank you, and enjoy the full content feeds.

RSS Feed Madness

Well, wasn’t that fun? If you’re currently subscribed to MacManX.com’s RSS feed, you probably know what I’m talking about, and I do apologize for that. Last night, I was thinking about increasing the feed to 16 articles. Unfortunately, I managed to enter “160” instead, and I didn’t notice until this morning. In a panic, I tried to decrease it to 10, but accidentally entered “100”. Fortunately, I noticed that mistake in a matter of minutes, and decided that it was best to leave the feed at 12 articles. So, now that we’re done with that problem, do any of you have any suggestions for MacManX.com’s feed or MacManX.com in general?
