RSS, OPML and the XML platform.

At this morning hour, I finally setup the DNS for reblinks.com. It took a lot longer than expected. I wanted to do this in January, but I had major problems with the registrar. After a couple months struggling with the registrar to setup the DNS, I decided to move all my domains to a new registrar. That process is finally ending this week.
Today, I searched the Internet for a method of exposing the RSS <enclosure> tag for images already attached as assets of an entry in MT4 (Movable Type). It was not easy. I searched for about an hour before I came up with the following. Here's hoping Google will make it easier for the next guy. GoogleBot index!
<enclosure url="<mt:AssetURL>" length="<mt:AssetProperty property="file_size" format="0">" type="<mt:AssetMimeType>" />
NewsAlloy, a semi-popular RSS news reader, may go offline in the next few days. I received an email this morning warning me to back-up my OPML as their hosting arrangement is nearing its end. They are looking for new hosting. This might be an interesting customer purchase for a larger RSS company.
