Sorry, RSS Readers

The caching that I recently enabled seems to have caused trouble with my RSS feed. I think the cause was this: Historically, I've hosted my website at two URLs: and When fetching the feed, all the URLs would be relative to that host. So occasionally, when the feed was judged to be out-of-date by the cache, it woulde be regenerated using the other hostname, making all the items look new to common RSS readers like Google Reader.

So from now on, the canonical hostname for my blog is, and will just be a redirect in order to get the canonical hostname.

One more flip-flop may be coming up for my intrepid readers, but after that hopefully things settle down.
