[Apologies, David, I couldn’t resist.]

I don’t seem to be getting my own posts back in Bloglines, for two or three days now…and this might help tell me how general the problem is.
Update: Thanks for the fast responses; no further responses needed. There seems to be an intermittent issue…and a little research using another aggregator yields interesting results:
- It’s not just me–that is, Walt at Random isn’t the only blog where I haven’t received posts since some time on Wednesday.
- In my case, I’m in very good company: The two other examples are
TameTheWebTame the Web and ShiftedLibrarianThe Shifted Librarian. But I’ve gotten more recent posts from several other blogs on the same host…
- Skimming quickly through the alternate aggregator (installed a few months ago when Bloglines was acting up, with a copy of my Bloglines roll from back then), I’m surprised by how many of the subscriptions are moribund–which I’ll define, in this case, as “no posts since August 2006.” If I unsubbed all of those–which I might do at some point when I have nothing better to do (2012?)–I might well drop a hundred or more of the 400+ blogs I theoretically monitor. But, of course, it takes no time to monitor moribund blogs…
No promises here about “final post of the year.” We’re not that big on holidays, although we will get together with family on Monday, and continue a long-standing tradition with a dear friend on the following Monday…
