Memo to the tech folks at the Stranger

When you moved the Slog to sometime on Tuesday or Wednesday, you busted the Atom feed more than a few of us were using on Google Reader. So, you know, you might want to fix it. Or restore the link tags that allow Firefox to pick up the location of the Slog’s RSS and Atom feeds. And yeesh, Scriptaculous AND Prototype? Do you need both JavaScript libraries? Heck, throw in jQuery while you’re at it. I mean, send us a few hundred kilobytes of JavaScript before we see one post.

On second thought… I’ve been in a good mood for the last couple of days. Coorelation doesn’t equal causation and all, but maybe you should leave it all your corrections be until the weekend is over, just to be sure.

    Scriptaculous is an addon to Prototype. You can’t use Scriptaculous without Prototype, that’s sort of how it works.

    Agreed that the Slog URL change is weird though.

    The atom feed is restored (or, more precisely, redirecting to the RSS feed), as is the head link.

    And yes, Scriptaculous and Prototype have no overlap, they complement each other.

    The index URL changes are necessary, but the old links will happily send you there:

    Thanks! And yeah, I forgot about the Prototype requirement for Scriptaculous. (I use jQuery for effects and still hand-code AJAX stuff, so there’s my excuse.)
