The home page is broken!
Nobody complained; do any of you guys read my home page? It’s the one-stop shop for recent activity: it has the latest blog entry and the last six comments (if you expand the ‘blog’ section, that is).
I noticed, after “We’re not in Sudan” showed up as ?We?re no in Sudan? that the special characters weren’t making it intact from the blog to the home page. That trick is done (currently) using MagpieRSS to parse the RSS feed from the blog. I did a quick read round on the subject and got the impression that a later version of Magpie might cure the problem with no extra work. I upgraded and, in so doing, broke the thing properly. I’m re-installing the old version, in another window, as I write this.
