This is some web-code nonsense that will be of no interest to most of you. But for the rest, this might be kind of interesting.

Most blogs ping a particular server (or series of servers, I suppose) to let the server know that the blog has been updated. Since I hand-built my blog from scratch, that's not a feature I've built in yet... and I think it's about time that I did. The [xml] link I've got on the bottom of my right-navigation menu is handy, but only if you've actually subscribed to my blog through something like bloglines or something. So... I'm currently in the process of getting my blog update script to ping technorati automatically. So far, I'm having a little difficulty with it... but I think I should be able to get it figured out here soon.

As a temporary fix, this will do for now: Ping Technorati

itnomad said: you still have difficulties with Technorati-pings? I'm a Bloglines-user - Bloglines doesn't give me the opportunity to ping to Technorati (they don't use the API), so i need to do a manual ping. However, that doesn't seem to work for weeks now...
