I just edited my holiday posts, adjusting the dates so they approximately match the time when I wrote them, eliminating the odd typo and spicing them with extra links.

It just occured to me that this will cause applications like NetNewsWire to mark those posts as unread again. My apologies for the inconvenience.

No matter, I’ve already seen about 3 versions of them already… :/

(BTW, I really enjoyed your writing!)

Hm, my apologies for that. I thought this had something to do with me only having used MT’s default template for the rdf that I provide, without knowing what it does.

I just had a look at the template and it doesn’t seem to use any date other than the creation date of the post. Hence, I guess that NetNewsWire simply compares the entries to determine whether there has been a change. So there isn’t much I can do.

Somehow there should be a tag for ‘last significant change on’ to indicate whether it is worth bothering people subscribing to look at the post again. Most changes I make are simply to eliminate typos and should be able to pass without attracting any attention.

And thanks for the flattery.
