RSV emails

Chris Nolan: I enchanced the blog toolkit on the weekend too, and yesterday I got an email from the KBCafe.com's RSS validator letting me know that my feed was broken (I had made a typo and forgot to re-validate). I felt really special that this guy Randy took the time to email me to let me know, and then later in the day I realized it's probably just a completely automated system he has setup that crawls feeds, validates them and emails if they fail. Turns out his system is a bit more strict than FeedValidator's too in his handling of whitespace. I've modified my template to accomodate. He's got a # of blogs on his site as well, and he manages the local toronto bloggers meetup group so maybe I'll check them out in the new year.

Randy: Just a note. There's no automated system that emails you when the Really Simple Validator finds your feed to be broken. I write the emails entirely myself.
