feed2js-tombstone

The dirt goes in the hole by May 30, 2013 (the end date of softlayer’s billing cycle)… the Feed2JS server will be cancelled on May 28, and the lights go out.

For some time, the domain will be pointed at an information site on wordpress.con, and a small “nag” notice is now appended to all feeds from the current server:

nag

If you do not want to see this nag message in your output, just modify your code to include a &nag=n on the end of the string, e.g.

I was worried about breaking a bunch of sites, but a url not found means the javascript is just ignored, and left blank. I set up a test page to verify http://lab.cogdogblog.com/hungry.html.

The code site is shaping up, and a big thanks to Tim Owens for jumping in an helping prep the front page readme using Markdown Oh tim, I will never forget my first pull request ;-)

But Tim has done more, he figured out how to set up an Amazon EC2 AMI so you can also run your own Feed2JS instance up ni the clouds.

With a little help from my friends…
