Technorati quick fix

Freshness Warning
This blog post is over 17 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current and the links no longer work.

Technorati’s watchlist feeds stopped working sometime in the last 12 hours. The feed contents contained whitespace before the XML declaration, which is a big no-no. I emailed Dave Sifry about it around lunchtime and within an hour he’d replied to let me know they were working on it. An hour later I get an email from one of the Technorati developers letting me know the bug was fixed and watchlist feeds worked again.

Nice quick work guys.

That's funny (not really), they've never answered any of the 3 -4 emails I sent them. I must've been more pissed than you at the time lol. I admire how fast your page updates. I'm not sure if it's a MT vs WP thing or not (although I do use JS scripts in my header, hmmm), but nice job.
