installed amphetadesk

for those of you who don’t know, amphetadesk is a program which allows you to subscribe to the Rich Site Summary (RSS) “feed” or “channel” of a website (if they have one, which they all should!), like the one on this site. It runs on your local machine as a server, periodically downloads local copies of the feeds you specify and generates an HTML web page for you to view the feed locally, or if it’s running on a network or internet node, remotely.

I noticed that my RSS feed isn’t 100% compatible with amphetadesk (and probably other readers) as my links show up as tags because they are encoded, so apologies to anyone seeing them like this via an RSS reader – I didn’t know until just now!
