Sorry Blogliners...

Thanks to Russ I discovered a problem in my feeds that caused Bloglines (and probably a few others) to keep on marking every entry as new.

The comments counter is automatically incremented each time a new comment is added. Bloglines, in addition of the looking at the entry dates, also scan the actual text.

Per Russ suggestion the feeds now include a dynamically generated image to indicate the number of comments associated with an entry.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

FREE Downloads

Okay, so what's the deal with Free downloads? When was the last time you paid to download anything?

Does it mean it's free to download but you'll have to pay later? Duh... You got me fooled. There's no such thing as a free lunch.

Does putting the free in there make it more appealing? I guess it sounds better than trial or crippled.

I don't know. Maybe I got too much free time on my hands or maybe I should just start a free meme.
