Some of you may have noticed problems with my RSS feed, and the LiveJournal feed that runs off of it (I’m not using LJ much lately, so I didn’t find out about this until my sister brought it to my attention). Turns out there was a phantom character—known as a ‘gremlin’—in one of my entries, which caused the feed to be invalid XML. This caused a parsing error when attempting to use the feed with some feed-readers, including whichever one LiveJournal uses to parse and display the feed. I have ‘zapped’ the ‘gremlin’ and everything should work fine now. LiveJournal updates their version of the feed again at 2am tomorrow (Monday, Sept. 24), so everything should be back-to-normal then.
