RSS Feed available (and port 80 opened)

I've finally found some time to write and debug some code to produce an RSS feed based on the weblog Posts in my EcoSpace.

The URL for the RSS feed is Mirrors will also be available at and

Note that the IP address is the one I get from my ADSL ISP, and this IP address will change in the next four weeks (when I upgrade from 1MB/512KB to 4MB/1MB). So you should probably want to use the RSS feed from one of the mirrors...

You may notice that there's no :4242 in the URL. That's right: I've opened up port 80 as well, since not everyone was able to configure their firewall (sometimes beyond their controls) to use port 4242. The weblog will be accessible through both ports 4242 and the default port 80 from now on.

The article explaining how I produced RSS, and how I added an ECO Web Service to the ASP.NET project is still in the works (and so is the Web Service itself - right now the RSS Feed is generated automatically as a static file once I save my changes to a post).

At least you can automatically check for updates now. And both RSS Validator and Feed Validator believe I'm producing a valid RSS feed.
