Invalid RSS feed from JavaBlogs

invalid_javablogs_feed

I noticed that there is nothing from JavaBlogs since late last night. So I did a little investigation. Turns out that the RSS feed is invalid. Instead of a valid XML document, the RSS is wrapped inside HTML mark up and this chokes any RSS parser. In addition, the "title" element is missing.

Updated my javablogs preprocess script to handle this unexpected scenario.

Macally BTMICRO

Stay away from Macally BTMICRO mouse.

It is too small to hold comfortably. My hand is in great strain after only a few days of usage.

Its light sensor is very picky at the surface.
