Any chance of an RSS/RDF feed?

Joel --

Any chance of you creating an RSS or RDF feed for Joel On Software?

It was mentioned halfway down http://discuss.fogcreek.com/joelonsoftware/default.asp?cmd=show&ixPost=689 but doesn't appear to have been implemented.

I've rather fallen in love with FeedReader - http://www.feedreader.com/ - and am using it to slurp up all the sites in my "Visit Daily" bookmark folder.  Yours is one of only two which don't clearly supply RSS feeds (FuckedCompany being the other, since you asked)

Advantages for me:  I get pinged when your site is updated, rather than having to visit and eyeball the site every day.

Advantages for you:  I'll only be slurping an XML file each day, rather than full HTML page with images.

Sound good?

I have always had an RSS feed, and it's always been at the "usual" place (http://joelonsoftware.com/rss.xml).

Rawk on!

You might want to consider putting a link to it somewhere, cause the usual suspect ( http://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Ajoelonsoftware.com+rss+OR+rdf ) didn't turn it up.

Have a good one,
