Changing RSS Source

Due to the recent news about Google shutting down a number of services, including Reader an the CalDAV API, I came to the realization that my RSS source for this blog should probably go back to the main feed. So, as of July 1, 2013, the same day Reader shuts down, the old feed at http://feeds2.feedburner.com/pthree will be deprecated in favor of http://pthree.org/feed.

I chose Feed Burner years ago for its data collection. Then Google purchased Feed Burner, and the data runs through their servers. Due to the killing off of Reader, it would not surprise me if they killed off Feed Burner as well. I don't look at the stats much, so they're not as important to me now, as they were when I set it up.

Many of you may be using the http://pthree.org/feed source already. If so, you're good. If you're using the http://feeds2.feedburner.com/pthree source, then you may want to make the switch before July 1, 2013. The Ubuntu Planet uses my Feed Burner source. I'll get it updated before the deadline.
